Project Life 2015 – Week 33

Projekt Leben 2015 – Woche 33   Week 33 was a very eventful week. First, my vacation with sister on Germany’s northernmost island of Sylt, which was definitely a highlight. And the day after we got home, we set out again on a family vacation all the way to the very south of Germany. In other words, there was much to see and enjoy for this double spread, and definitely way more photos (and stories) that could ever be included in a PL spread. Woche 33 war sehr ereignisreich. Zuerst war da ja der Kurzurlaub mit Schwester auf Deutschlands nördlichster Insel Sylt. Und das war definitiv ein Highlight. Und am Tag nach unserer Ankunft zuhause gings gleich weiter zum Familienurlaub in den tiefsten Süden Deutschlands. Mit anderen Worten, es gab jede Menge zu sehen und erleben für dieses Doppelseitenlayout, und auf jeden Fall mehr Fotos (und Geschichten) als Platz auf diesen Seiten.                   Credits: Be My Anchor by Misty Hilltops Designs (Freebie here on this site) Pocket …

Good-Bye Sylt

Abschied von Sylt   Saying good-bye is always sad. Especially, if you’ve had such a great time as we had had on the island of Sylt. Good-bye it was, however, and we got up really early to pack our tent and everything. And since we finished packing in good time, we even had time to go back to the beach for a moment. Abschied zu nehmen ist immer schwer. Besonders, wenn man so eine schöne Zeit, wie wir auf Sylt gehabt haben. Abschied war aber dran und wir standen früh auf, um alles zusammenzupacken. Und da wir recht früh mit dem Packen fertig waren, hatten wir sogar noch Zeit für einen kleinen Abstecher an den Strand.             Click on images to enlarge / Zum Vergrößern auf die Bilder klicken

Rømø & List/Sylt

  Rømø is a Danish island. And to Rømø we wanted to go today. In order to make the ferry, we got up really early. We put the bikes on a bus and rode to Sylt’s northernmost town, List. There we got onto the ferry that took us to Denmark where we spent all morning riding around. We even ended up on Northern Europe’s largest beach. In the afternoon we took the ferry back to Sylt and then rode our bikes all the way to the northernmost tip of the island (which also happens to be the northernmost tip of Germany). It was almost dark, when we got back to our tent, but there was still time for a quick trip to the beach. Rømø ist eine dänische Insel. Und nach Rømø wollten wir heute. Um es auf die Fähre zu schaffen, standen wir in aller Frühe auf. Mit den Fahrrädern fuhren wir mit dem Bus nach List, wo wir dann auf die Fähre wechselten, die uns nach Dänemark brachte. Dort radelten wir schließlich den …

Hörnum and the Seal Bank

Hörnum und die Seehundbank   It had been dear sister’s explicit wish to visit the seal banks of the coast of Amrum. Trips there are offered from Sylt’s southern most tip, Hörnum. And since we had our bikes and we wanted to catch the 10:00 am ship, we got up really early. While riding the 12 km or so, we realized that we wouldn’t be able to make it on time. But there’s another ship right around noon, so we decided to take things more slowly. We caught the right ship, were lucky to be among the first aboard, and we were lucky to be on the right side of the ship – from where you’d be able to see the seals. And of course, we were lucky to see the seals on that sandbank, which was flooded a little at the time. Once back in Hörnum, we caught a glimpse of Willi (the seal that decided to inhabit the harbor) and gave up our plan to visit the lighthouse there (s.o. on the ship …

Westerland beach and on the way to Kampen
Strand in Westerland und auf dem Weg nach Kampen

Sylt: Westerland & Kampen

After breakfast, we set out to explore the center of the island a little. Our first stop of the day was Westerland, where we climbed to a lookout on the highest dune in this part. We also made a quick visit to the beach and then had lunch at the Westerland promenade. From there we moved on toward Kampen, past the lighthouse “Langer Kristian”, the highest point of Sylt called “Uwe Düne”, and the nearby red cliff (Rotes Kliff). From there we looked at the cross light (Quermarkenfeuer), rode into Kampen, past Langer Kristian again and then on the other side of the island back to Westerland. Nach dem Frühstück zogen wir los, um ein wenig das Zentrum der Insel zu erkunden. Unser erster Halt war in Westerland, wo wir auf den Aussichtspunkt der höchsten Düne hier hinaufstiegen. Wir statteten auch dem Strand einen kurzen Besuch ab und aßen zu mittag an der Promenade. Von hier gings weiter Richtung Kampen, vorbei am Leuchtturm “Langer Kristian” und dem höchsten Punkt der Insel, der Uwe Düne. Wir …
