Was really good all in all. The Reeperbahn really is something else, and we didn't even manage to get down the famous Fishmarkt. Beer there is really nice and with so many bars the prices are forced down, drank a bar clean out of Becks Gold which I don't think is sold over here yet. Gets a bit tasty at night though, St Pauli felt like it was going to kick off at any point.
Went because another lad we were with was running the Hamburg marathon and also went to see Hamburg in a game against Fortuna Dusseldorf. Was a briliant atmosphere in a great new stadium there for what was really a dead rubber for Hamburg. Dusseldorf got relegated in the end, but then when Andriy Vorinin is your impact sub you can have few complaints.
Only downside was a few "brits abroad" types going round being dickheads. Some fat beaut who we must have had the displeasure of bumping into every day we were there and on the fight back to Manchester wore the same Hamburg shirt every day with Sex Machine printed on the back. Whenever we saw him he was being a dick. Even saw a massive banner at the match behind the goal with it on. Maybe it is some sort of group.
The guy looked like he'd never had sex in his life anyhow.
The week before we went to Copenhagen. Now that was a brilliant trip. Want to go back there one day. Especially to the Freetown Christiana.
^^^ Great pic FOAR, table full of drink too
Thanks, Cas. The table didn't stay full of drink for much longer afer this pic, after I knocked them all over about 10 minutes later. Brits abroad eh!?
