During easter we had Léna as a guest who takes a year off after she finished her studies and currently cycles across Europe. Hamburg was one of her destinations along the route. She brouhgt us unusual good weather (because as you may know, Hamburg is known for rain) when we picked her up at Landungsbrücken on friday evening. Everybody who cycles knows what you need after a 90 km day: shower, food and a bed. While having dinner at the balcony we exchanged stories from our tours and it turned out that Léna speaks German actually very well. The curly haired french woman moved every year during her studies and therefore got to know many different countries and people. In the end of the year she wants to settle in Sweden. As we soon liked her very much we spontaneously invited her to breakfast with Marius´ familiy on easter sunday. When she left in the afternoon to proceed to Berlin, Marius accompanied her on her way out of the city. Read her story on Facebook.
Léna found us on the plattform Warmshowers, a worldwide network of cyclist who offer hospitality and local tips to each other.
