We arrived home at 8 pm on Sunday evening, and successfully unpacked our suitcases in double-quick time – thanks largely to hubby ♥. Yesterday we spent our time getting back into our regular routine and catching up with everything that had taken a back seat while we away. I love travelling and exploring new places around the world, but I do love being home the best!
Whilst we were in Dortmund, Hubby spent his time sightseeing and I spent my time at the Conference Centre! Fortunately our flight home on Sunday wasn’t until 5 pm, which allowed us time to get our packing done, and we checked out of the hotel. We left our luggage at the hotel and went sightseeing in the town centre and back to the hotel so we had walked in a huge circle.
The weather was dry, but freezing cold – the temperature was 0° – but it wasn’t wet or windy so it was a very pleasant couple of hours. One of the best things that struck us both was that all the shops were closed! In the UK, and lots of other countries we’ve visited, all shopping centres seem to open on Sunday’s and it’s such a shame we don’t have any days when shops are closed!
We did come across one shop that was open but we do think we may have gatecrashed a private function! It was almost like a florist shop full of Christmas products like wreaths made with branches, twigs, pine cones berries, etc. The whole shop was like a cave, with decorations hanging from the ceilings, on shelves. There was sawdust on the floor which finished off the atmosphere beautifully.
We felt like gatecrashers when a young guy with a tray of drinks offered us one! LOL! It was a lovely walk to finish off a few days away before we headed off to the airport. I’m sharing a few photographs with you, and hopefully, I’ll be able to get back into my studio for a bit of crafting today!
That’s about it from me for today! I hope you’ve enjoyed this virtual tour of Dortmund! I look forward to being back with you tomorrow, and in the meantime, happy crafting.
