    whereabouts are you going? I have been to dresden and leipzig they are really nice and great shops. They tend to have a lot of designer places and good quality clothes shops, lots of bars where they sell coffee as well as beer lol xx Hope you have a great time :)

    Thanks Becky I did Google it, not that much info!

    I don't drink never have so that's not gonna phase me.

    Nikki, I going to Hamburg (Lubeck), Maybe I could find a dress for my mum's party then? I saw one I liked in DP but Im sure about a million people would have worn it by then!
    Do they have any of the stores we have here? What's it like for eating??

    eating lol well its probably not too bad in Hamberg because there is a big british army camp based there so they may have more english stuff there. But german wise everything tend to be pork, chicken and turkey. When I was there I couldn't find any beef and lamb but that may have changed. You'll find a lot of bakeries and chocolate shops. They also have these soft gingery kind of biscuits I don't like them but u might (if you can have them).

    As for the clothes front their style is a bit different from ours they tend to be a bit more conservatively dressed than us - but you should definitely be able to find some classic pieces.

    Hope thats a little use :) and remember to say danke schon (means than you very much, I think lol my german is rusty) but they do like to speak english so don't worry too much about the german xx

    :D Hamburg is a nice place, i spent 2 years in Berlin, and Bremehaven when i was in the army, it is a lovely place, not so many british units left over there now, the shopping is very good and the food is great, the euro isnt as strong as it was though so keep an eye out on what you think is a bargain, it may not be :D

    Well their stock was very similar to here, I thought their clothes out there were actually better, I went in the winter and got a gorgeous coat from Zara, their shoes were lovely and they did loads of lovely dresses so their summer stuff is bound to be lovely!
