germany, day ??: berlin [Aug. 20th, 2004|11:27 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Hamburg was really nice. After that we head up to St. Peter's Ording on the North See and stayed in a bed & breakfast for two nights... went swimming in the ocean (nice temperature), rented bicycles, did laundry, ate, etc. The weather alternated between wonderful and stormy. Both were fun. Our bed & breakfast was so nice and quaint. Hit the nude beach (with clothes)... nude beach = FKK Strand. I jokingly guessed it meant "finden keine kleidungen" but it's actually something like "frei korpor kultur"...

So yeah, we then drove to Berlin today. Staying at a hotel downtown for a night. Dresden tomorrow. At some shit internet place with keyboards and mice that don't work.... 350 computers and none are usable. So, out of here. Internet's annoying anyway.

the plan:
-- tonight: berlin
-- tomorrow: walk around berlin more (did today), drive to dresden
-- tomorrow night: dresden 2 nights?

we'll see.

Ooh, I thought you had gotten lost on your way - good to see you're still around (and having fun!). Just call some time ahead tomorrow so I can head home in case I'm somewhere else.

There's a birthday party of a friend of mine tomorrow night, so you all either have to come with me, stay at my house or, er, do something entirely different. You are all invited though, my friend specifically said that you should all come. So it's not like you're not welcome there!

Ohhhhh, and there's plenty of things to do as Saturday & Sunday, Dresden is celebrating the annual Stadtfest, which is dorky, but probably fun.

FKK is also used for brothel type establishments in Germany. Heh. (much like "Naturist" magazines are porn/kiddie porn/etc.)

I hate german keyboards a fair bit.

I'm assuming 'kleidungen' is clothes since Unterkleidungen is like underwear?

heh. i knew what fkk stood for - we were organized by small groups in my high school german class, and we had to give ourselves names, so we chose "fkk anziehenden". the teacher was amused, but really didn't want to be.
