Now I'm in Hamburg, after one of the neatest train rides I've ever been on -- the train goes on a ferry and spends 45 minutes crossing the Fehmarn Belt. I've never been on a train on a ferry before, and probably never will again, since there will be a tunnel here in a few more years, so you should all take advantage of the opportunity while you can.

Now in Hamburg, in a hotel room furnished entirely in IKEA, so this won't be a long entry, since the chair is really uncomfortable. But beautifully designed and easy to assemble.

Tomorrow, off to Amsterdam! Day after that, on to the Ferry from Hoek van Holland to Harwich! Another new adventure, braving the North Sea even though Eurostar is there and I could do the whole route without risking seasickness. Livin' on the edge!

Many years ago, I visited Hamburg and went to a popular leather bar. Many of the men looked straight out of a Tom of Finland drawing, as did the couple with whom I went home:)

You had more fun in Hamburg than I did, I can tell... ;)

The North Sea in winter time.

I had my one major experience with sea-sickness on the Ferry from Hoek to Harwich-and I was only 21 at the time! I doubt the North Sea is any calmer now.

But you have braved bigger seas. You are a hardy traveler. Stay on deck where you can see the horizon, and think of Yukon Cornelius :)

I hope it will be a pleasant trip!
