We had awesome weather today in Lübeck. I did hike the last days and today it was so hot in my apartment that I had to get out there too. I have the issue that my living room is on the sunny side and it can get unbearable warm in the room. I didn’t want to go hiking again, instead I called a friend and asked him if he would like to drink one or two beers somewhere at the Trave River. We met each other and went to the Holsten Gate to sit at the mentioned river that flows also behind the gate. It was so hot, but it’s definitely more bearable at the river. It was especially tolerable because we bought two cold Curuba beers. We talked about this and that and enjoyed the weather. From time to time we walked further, because the river around the historic district has different beautiful sides.
Later we decided to purchase one more beer but that is usually difficult on a Sunday because most shops are closed. We found a snack bar and asked for an Alster Beer (shandy beer) but they didn’t have one. No problem, we purchased a beer and a Fanta soda bottle, because if you mix them both, you get a soft Alster beer and it’s very delicious. We went to the district where my friend lives and sat on his balcony. It’s funny, the view from his balcony is quit shady because all the buildings are quite old, but on the other side it is appealing for the exact same reason. In the afternoon, he has a lot of shadow on the balcony, that’s great when there is so much sun. Our mixed beer was super delicious too. Summer feeling came up today, because it was nice to spend time with a friend in the city.
