So, here is a round-up of everything to do in Hamburg. The only thing we didn’t find is cheesecake that’s worth writing about… I guess we will have to go again ;)

If you can manage to time it right and get to Hamburg for the Hafenfest you are in for a treat. It’s the biggest port festival in the world and the boats even dance ballet. Yes, you read that correctly, the boats dance together. You have to see it to believe it. You might even come across the Titanic!

Hamburg, Germany: Top Ten Reasons I Love Living Here

Despite my fear of heights I climbed around 500 steps up to the top of St. Petri’s Church and it was worth it to get this gorgeous view of this beautiful city! Photo Kristi Fuoco

How do I love thee Hamburg? Let me count the ways! As an expat it’s really easy after a while to just focus on the negative aspects of your new culture or country. And the thing is, we really do need to get things off our chest sometimes and we need other expats to complain to—this life ain’t easy folks! Every little day to day activity is more difficult in a foreign country, and even though many of us Canadians are descended from Europeans, there is still a rather elephant-sized cultural mountain between us at times. So, since Thanksgiving just passed (well the US one anyway) and Christmas is coming, I thought I would do my best to put on my hat of positivity and focus some of my favorite things about living in Hamburg, Germany.

My New German Love

YG Blogger Kristi has found the love of her life in Germany.

Alright, I can’t keep it in anymore. In fact I have to tell the whole world. I’m twitterpated. I’m smitten. I’m in deep smit. People told me it would happen but I didn’t really believe them. I blame my cousin Greg who basically set us up and wouldn’t stop singing my new lover’s praises. Everyone agrees that he is beautiful. I haven’t met anyone who didn’t think this, in fact. I think my parents are gonna love him. They’ve even met him briefly and I’m pretty sure they thought he was nice.
