Summer weekend in Hamburg
Yeah, we had such a lovely summer weekend in Hamburg with our friends Maikel and his boyfriend! I would really like to thank them for inviting us and taking care of us. They picked us up from the airport and drove us around in the cabriolet. We had so much food together and good times. We have stayed for three nights.
We flew with Easy Jet which cost us 22 euro per person per way, so this whole trip costed 88 euro. For this price, I can really not be picky about flying with Easy Jet. The only thing I don’t really like is that you can not bring a handbag next to your trolley. I took a wallet on chain kind of bag. So very small and that was allowed.
Drivers’ license is not a valid ID
From Sweden to The Netherlands, it was no problem to fly with only a drivers license. But we have learned that this is not officially a valid ID that you can travel with, with Easy Jet. Norwegian is easier in that way but Easy Jet says that they CAN refuse to take you on the flight. I just would like to share this info, since I always thought that a drivers license is valid enough within most countries in Europe. According the Dutch government website (rijksoverheid), you can cross a border with a drivers license (even in the airport), but you can’t STAY in a country without valid ID or passport (valid travel document).
Hamburg itself was amazing! We went out and we saw so many nice places. I made two video’s (vlogs) about it, so next friday you will see more. The places we have visited in Hamburg really touched my heart. I fell in love with this city. It has so much to offer. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think of Hamburg and keep an eye on next Friday, there is so much more to come… of course I will write some more in a next blog post too!
