PEOPLE HERE ARE CALLED HAMBURGERS // Hamburg, Germany

I have been lucky enough to spend my time in Hamburg with a friend, who has just returned from travelling around Australia, Asia and New Zealand for a year. Nothing like having a local to show you around!

I was quite surprised that there was harbour here, as Hamburg is not on the coast! But a large river runs to the city, which cargo ships can travel down into the massive docks.
