Short Trip to Bremen – Beck`s ship&co

A visit to the Beck`s-ship `Alexander von Humboldt´ is worthwhile

„Alexander von Humboldt is a German sailing ship originally built in 1906 by the German shipyard AG Weser at Bremen as the lightship Reserve Sonderburg. She was operated throughout the North and Baltic Seas until being retired in 1986. Subsequently, she was converted into a three masted barque by the German shipyard Motorwerke Bremerhaven and was re-launched in 1988 as Alexander von Humboldt“ (Wikipedia)

The Beck`s ship

Green sails were installed as a marketing tool for advertising the German brewery Beck`s.

Sunny Sunday – lazy afternoon

Read the Kinks lyrics

The tax man’s taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

And I can’t sail my yacht
He’s taken everythin‘ I’ve got
All I’ve got’s this sunny afternoon

Middle Ages Spectaculum 2017 – in Rastede

Middle Ages

In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages or Medieval Period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It began with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merged into the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery. The Middle Ages is the middle period of the three traditional divisions of Western history: classical antiquity, the medieval period, and the modern period. The medieval period is itself subdivided into the Early, High, and Late Middle Ages.
