I arrived in Bremen at Kim‘s on Friday night at 9 p.m. – being late. The stupid train had stopped right before Bremen for an unknown reason [well, according to the announcement there had been people on the tracks, but who knows if you can believe that] and this delayed my arrival for about 50 minutes.
Kim had already cooked dinner for us – a delicious potato-vegetable-casserole- and we sat down and ate and talked, followed by watching some episodes of ‘Friends‘.
Saturday, we started the day with a yummy breakfast, lots of coffee and some more “educational TV” [aka “Friends”]. Just what we both needed to take our minds off all the stuff that is causing our frustration right now. As the weather was kind of crappy, there was really nothing else to do than stay at home and distract ourselves ;)
In the evening the sky cleared up and we decided to check out the Viertelfest – a little street festival in Bremen.
We met with some of Kim’s friends, had some drinks and some yummy crÃƒÂªpes for dessert and strolled around.
Kim picked up these two cute guys on the way [or did they pick up Kim? I don’t remember :)… oh, I think they just wanted to be in the picture].
We got home around midnight and decided that we’re officially addicted and couldn’t go to bed without more “Friends”, so we got comfy on the couch, had some tea and snacks and watched some more.
Sunday was the laziest day of all. We slept in late and then hung out on the couch and the day pretty much went like this: relaxing – talking – more “Friends” – more talking – more coffee – more “Friends”. In the afternoon, we made yummy rice pudding [Milchreis] with cherries and just enjoyed each other’s company. It felt so good being comfortable around each other while doing nothing at all and still knowing that the other one is there to listen and talk if you feel like it :)
Today we got up at 10 a.m., I took a shower, went over to the bakery to get fresh rolls and then we had breakfast together and talked some more before I had to get ready to catch my train. The weekend went by so quickly, but it has been the best weekend in a long time. I think I speak for the both of us if I say that we definitely both feel ‘re-charged’ for a little while.
PLUS, I got to enjoy some more “Friends” on the train ride… thanks to my notebook and Kim who gave me some spare DVDs that she doesn’t need anymore since she owns the box set with all ten seasons [thanks hun!].
[P.S. I apologize if you have seen some of these pictures over at Kim’s blog already, but we somehow didn’t manage to take many this weekend].
