So...after spending four lovely days in Oldenburg (which is in the very north of Germany, but still suth enough so one doesn't get to see the sea - it's a pretty little town not unlike my home town, but everything is flat, 50 meters above sea level is considered a mountain, and it's windy all the time. Nice for a few days, but I wouldn't want to live there.) where I took part in a project meeting for university. I did manage to get a little stitching in on both the train ride and the one free day we had, but that will have to wait a little - first, I need to tell you about the most awesome hotel room Felix and I got!
We got in on the meeting rather late, and when we called the hotel for a room they said they only had a 'higher class one' left. As it was still well within the budget our university pays for such stays, we said okay,only to learn that 'it might be a themed room as well', but they didn't know yet. As the hotel offers anything from a 'Mini'-room with half a Mini Cooper sticking out of the wall to a 'Vinyl'-room all covered in LPs, we braced ourselves for quite a suprise. This was the first thing we saw when entering the room:
Turned out we had scored ourselves a beautiful Sweden themed room, complete with a sauna and a bucket for ice-cold water in the shower, stylish stone floor and a very...rustical looking, but fully functional bathroom. I had never used a sauna before to be honest, but I took quite a liking of this one.
We also discovered that there was an additional level above the bed - it took as little while to find the ladder, and then it was rather disappointing, though I guess we could have housed a third person up there if we wanted to - one that wasn't afraif of heigths or falling at least...
Oh, and we mustn't forget about Bob, of course. Meet Bob - Hi Bob!
And before you ask, why yes, we WERE there to work, and work we did - but it might have been one of the most fun work trips I'll ever make :D
