Photoessay: Lübeck, Germany

A couple years ago, my mom introduced me our neighbor’s new German au pair. His name was Aljoscha (eye-yo-sha). I invited him to my impromptu, three person birthday party at the bar, introduced him to Pabst Blue Ribbon and we’ve been friends ever since. So when I planned my trip to Germany, I knew that seeing Aljoscha was a no-brainer.

We spent the first day walking around the big city of Hamburg, which has plenty of beautiful sights but requires a lot of leg work to see them all. The next day, he took me to his home city: Lübeck. The city of Lübeck is smaller than Hamburg, but definitely packs a punch in terms of gorgeousness per square foot. It feels a little more cozy and friendly, and didn’t give my feet too much of a reason to complain. Aljoscha and I wandered, sat by the water and went searching for tiny alleyways to duck into. The photographs will do this gorgeous little city considerably more justice than my rambling words, though, so let’s begin!

The unknown is scary, until you realize that your entire life has been unknown.

  1. That little alley with the colorful houses – so pretty! I also love the different shapes of the buildings – curves and steps and slants. I spent a few days in Hamburg last year, and now I’m wishing we had stopped in Lubeck.

    1. It was so tiny but packed bull of typical German gorgeousness. I had no idea my friend lived in such a pretty place!

      But Hamburg has some pretty sights, even if it’s not so quaint. Looks like you’ll just have to go back! 😀
