Europe » Germany » Brandenburg » Potsdam August 2nd 2018

Axels cousin, Claudia picked us up and we went to Potsdam. Potsdam is the capital and largest city of the German federal state of Brandenburg. It directly borders the German capital, Berlin, and is part of the Berlin/Brandenburg Metropolitan Region. It is situated on the River Havel 24 kilometres southwest of Berlin's city centre. There we went to the Sanssouci. Sanssouci is the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. The palace was designed/built by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff between 1745 and 1747 to fulfill King Frederick's need for a private residence where he could relax away from the pomp and ceremony of the Berlin court. We had ice cream on the grounds then went to Claudia’s home. Under construction ... read more

Today everyone was leaving Snarret and heading to the farm. At the last minute, Axel and I decided to drive to Oslo and get a room close to the airport as we were flying out to Germany the next day. Andy and Gry graciously loaned us the car. We spent the day walking around the harbour front in Oslo looking at boats of various sizes and types. We had dinner on the boardwalk at Jamie Oliver’s where our waitress was a young lady from Winnipeg. She has two university degrees in English and dance and has moved to Oslo with her boyfriend she met at an exchange. Our room was nice and close to the airport with a shuttle and we got breakfast in the morning at 4am so bonus! ... read more

Please note we are 30 min from Honefoss but Brekkebygda is the area that the cottage is at. Woke and made myself down the rocks to the main cottage from our cabin. Saw Gry and Elly tacking up for a ride. It was a super hot morning. Made my coffee and tidied up the kitchen a bit. Sat in my favourite spot on the swing, over looking the mountains with the morning sun hitting my face. We packed up and head back to the lake at Krøderfjorden. There we met Andy and his bigger boat. We swam, Axel skied, we tuned and sat enjoying the beautiful weather. Had a snack at the dock area which was very nice then headed home to watch the lunar eclipse. It was a nice relaxing evening. We had left overs ... read more

Had a nice short flight on Icelandair to Oslo. Andy was there to meet us. We stopped in Honefoss on the way to Snarret, to Joan who is recovrring from a broken hip. Through the twisting bends of the road we made our way to the cottage. It was great seeeing it through Axels eyes. This is my 4th summer here but I was able to show him all the things I had been talking about over the last two years. Axel says my descriptions and photos don’t do justice! We spent the day enjoying the outside. We had cheese and breads for lunch, did a little ATVing and chatted. We enjoyed dinner alfresco and enjoyed the company and conversation. What would dinner be like however without Andy playing the horn. It was like it had ... read more
