2007 Elbe and Weser

2007 Elbe and Weser -The trip started in Hamburg, where we had found a parking space by Ulrike and Andreas. Along the Elbe to Cuxhaven and from there to Bremerhaven where we caught the Weser river. The Weser River is the one the Germans are most proud of because, it is the only one of their rivers that starts and ends in Germany.

Helgoland was a wonderful acquaintance. Probably the only island that has been destroyed by bombs. Fortunately, it does not succeed. On Helgoland is a duty free area, so booze and cigarettes galore.
