    Fuck Sigur Ros. I'd be more stoked to just be hanging out at that bar.

    I'm back. Had fun and will definitely go back to Germany, although I think I saw what there needed to be seen of Hamburg. I got the flu my first fucking day there, so I didn't get to do the nighttime stuff I wanted to do. Tevs. iPHone pics soon.

    There isn't a lot to do in Hamburg, unless you are into prostitutes.

    Did you buy a pair of $500 sneakers? That, and getting some pastrami at Canters is all you should be doing in that part of town.

    Arrived in Hamburg around 4:00pm on a Saturday afternoon after traveling for about 18 hours. After resting and unpacking and washing the stench off of me. Was exhausted so I didn’t do much but grab a bite and a couple of beers, but a guy on our trip took some pictures of the city:

    The American consulate right around the corner from our hotel


    View of town square



    Downtown




    Train station


    The next morning, we set off for Lubeck and Travemunde. Lubeck is an old Hansiatic city and Travemunde is a beachside town on the Baltic sea. Before we left town, we stopped off to check out the “Fischmarket”…basically a huge Sunday morning farmer’s market, but with an added bonus—an old warehouse (Biergarten) that a band plays in and everyone ends there Saturday night in there. They hit up the Reeperbahn, get loaded, and then head to the Fischmarket Sunday morning for food, and then more booze and dancing.


    The fortress, built in the 1400’s, was meant to guard the city of Lubeck. If it looks skewed, it’s because it is. It’s slowly sinking into the mud.



    Medieval buildings inside the town:

    Puppet theater scared the shit out of me


    Old door

    3D model of the city for the blind


    Medieval town square. Looked like the Renaissance fair.


    Went into a cool old church there. Won’t bore you with pics, but there was a part of the church that was pretty cool. It had been bombed during World War II; they rebuilt the church, but left the bell (which had been obliterated during the bombing) as it was after the bombing—in a twisted wreck on the floor.

    Not much to see in Travemunde as it looks like pretty much any other beach town you’ve ever been in.
    The next day we went to the airbus factory for a tour and lunch. We were forbidden to bring in any phones or cameras, but James got a pic of one of their Beluga Whale aircraft unloading a piece of fuselage.


    I got off the tour at this point since I had the flu and slept for about 15 hours. The next day was our free day, but I just wandered around downtown and went back to the hotel for a nap before dinner. Nothing exciting.

    lol, yes!! I was just there in March.

    New York is only the first leg of my trip. After spending 5 days in NY I'll be in Philadelphia for another 3 weeks so most of the packing is for that part of the trip. I only brought 1 checked bag and 1 carry on so it's not that difficult to manage. I usually take the airport shuttle from the airport to the hotel anyways, but I could manage the subway if I needed to since the 2 bags stack together.

    What's interesting to do in the drive between Arcata (Humboldt) and Portland, Oregon? Any amazing hikes, sights, or kooky shit on the way? How about in Portland?

    When are you going to be in Portland? There are some good shows coming up. I can probably direct you to a few things.

    I'll be there in a week or two. Kind of just waiting and hoping for a free couch to materialize for me there. I'll be coming up the 101 so I don't know if I wanna exchange a gorgeous drive along the coast at times for a mystery circle. I really don't know what the 5 looks like in Oregon though, the freeway is pretty bland from what I've seen.

    Anyone have any tips on how to search for all flights between one city and another? I’m not talking about searching multiple travel sites for best deals (kayak), but rather searching for all carriers (major and discount) who serve between one city and another.

    Yes, DC (any of the 3) to LAS. I'm surprised on how few direct flights I can find.

    I thought all major US carriers were on Orbitz/Expedia/etc except Southwest.. so can't you just check southwest.com and your favorite aggregator?
