The best memories I have are spending each summer holiday with my parents at the Baltic Sea, near a small town called Eckernförde. We did camping there every year for about 15 years.
But what I remember best is standing on the shore and watching the vessels (mostly fishing vessels and military ones) going in and out.
I think that's when my passion for shipping started.
I was five or six. Now that was 37-38 years ago :-D

Indeed it has been, but it stands out as my clearest, and fondest memory of childhood. I dont remember much, and thats the truth, but that, i remember.

Tomas, 35 years... Old, hehe

Great to have and keep such memories!
Well, some things never leave you, thank God :-)

I don't remember if we ever talked about it, but I think we could roughly be the same age so - wow - it has been quite some time since your first trip :-D

With the sistership of This little fart we was crammed in along with the BIG containerships in bremerhafen when i was young. Go figure, hehe!

Bremen is not bad, but too small for my taste. :-)
But I've never been to Bremerhaven.
Someday I want to visit the shipping museum there (and perhaps encounter some big Maersk vessels) 8-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 09, 2008 20:48 (10 years ago)
Besides Bremen, the very first town i visited in Germany. Or was it Bremerhafen? Anyway, these two towns, and Hamburg, has a special place in my heart.

I had to let him fly again, another crash victim, you might remember.
If you've the opportunity do come and visit Hamburg.
It's the most beautiful city in Germany! :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 09, 2008 09:38 (10 years ago)
