Hamburger Sommerdom

I still haven’t made up my mind about Hamburg yet.

The city is big and lively, but it hasn’t offered me much sentiment. On lucky days, the sun would shine and birds would sing. Sky would be blue and clouds would be fluffy. On normal days, however, blankets of water vapour would stretch till the endless horizon. High chance that rain would be drizzling.

At least autumn is still here, as leaves are either dark orange, deep red or musky brown. The other day I woke up to a -2 degrees Celsius, sun-shining-brightly, clear-sky morning and wondered if I may have travelled to another world in my dream.

Take it or leave it, I enjoy my life here. A busy schedule means no downtime aka depression. I feel useful and grown-up (not necessarily happy about this). Adjusting to uni, working part-time, photo hunting, window shopping, occasionally partying… Hamburg is perfect for all of the above.

But if you ask me if I love the city, let’s wait and discuss the matter in a year. We’ll see.


I took these photos in August, on the last opening day of Hamburg’s annual summer theme park (Sommerdom 2016). Two days ago the winter park, which arises from the same ground as the summer version, welcomed its first guests of the season. Not panicking but I’m still trying to comprehend the fact that 2016 is coming to an end.
