TransAtlantic Cruise Ship Queen Mary

A trans-Atlantic cruise from Hamburg to New York as soon as the famous Queen Mary 2 of the British tradition shipping company Cunard line Hamburg visited is a feast day in the Hanseatic City on the Elbe River. The is still so well these days. Often the year visited the Queen Mary 2 for this reason Hamburg, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth brings today even the Sisters of their fleet. The Queen Mary 2 has become a landmark of Hamburg without a doubt. We check and forward with the over 2,000 passengers on a marvelous trans-Atlantic voyage to New York. On the historic course at the time, the Titanic sailed. The impressive grand lobby is the first thing one sees from the Queen Mary 2.

This place would be any luxury hotel to honor with its marble columns, stucco ceilings and staircases. With the glass elevators, we get the deck on which our cabin is located. We have still some hours up to the drop. Only even have a bite to eat and then apply it, that to meet huge cruise ships. It will take probably a while until we get on the ship no longer lost.

Then it is time. The Tooting of the powerful typhoon of the Queen Mary 2 indicates that we have already placed. We of course don’t want to miss that. We always are thousands on the banks of the river Elbe and say goodbye. We wave back and enjoy the views over Hamburg. There is still time for a stroll on the deck before dinner. We have not explored the upper deck so far. Rear liner there’s a spacious pool area. Unfortunately, we will probably have little opportunity to soak up the Sun on the North Atlantic. Once completed the cruise ship around and we already abundant 600 metres. We take us to do two or three rounds every night after dinner.

Canary Islands

La Palma missing nor had we Tenerife even several times, from the Canary Islands, everyone else, visited. After we first wanted to let off this island, because we thought well enough to know the Canary Islands, we are now very happy not just to visit the nearest archipelago Cape Verde. The journey began in the night in Frankfurt, and went into the direct flight to the airport of La Palma in STA. Cruz. In about 4 1/2 hours we reached the Insel.Wie always had we rented privately and were curious to see whether the car is really at the airport and as the cottage is. Arriving on the East side, and you want to the sunnier side, the island must cross to the West side, what is an interesting and curvaceous La Palma travel with the car.

Luckily all was well and the car drove fine to our cottage. We by the owner of the cottage Canary Islands were Vista kindly received, and endowed with wine and fresh fruits and Avocados. That was a very nice arriving and we were optimistic regarding our further trip. After we us from our Intermediaries some hiking tips have let in, we also verplanten the next few days with walks in the North of the island of La Palma. Los TILOS, la Zarza, Barranco Los Gallegos, Las Franceses and many walks more will probably always remain in our memories.

These wonderful places in the North of the island are really impressive. A unique, in part only on La Palma and the Canary Islands to find vegetation, with Canary pine trees, Laurel forests, vines that grow 20 metres long in the valleys down, and countless herbs, bushes, giant Heathers and and and. At most, an herb which drove a 4 metre high flower in the sky, which was equipped with countless small, single, pink flowers but impressed us. It is the Wildpretii Bugloss, which occurs only on Tenerife and La Palma, here even as a slightly prettier Unterspezie. Also the later walks, the journey into the Caldera de Taburiente, where we have camped for two nights (approval needed to get at the Centro de Visitantes in El Paso, free of charge), the full moon hike over the volcano route, from the Refugio del Pilar was Fuencaliente and some smaller hikes, of impressive beauty. Sometimes it was the other islands of the Canary Islands at a glance, or seen in deep valleys with breakneck slopes or up the coast of La Palma. That La Palma is so steep, the walks are always very challenging and with some changes in elevation. Therefore, a good guide is very important! A good Guidebook should include anyway any trip. We will definitely spend our next trip back on La Palma and visit the Cape Verde Islands until next year. Stefanie Krecek
