With a nasty cold, fever and cough that I had, we still decided to make a day trip from Rostock (where we were staying for 3 days) and visit Ahrenshoop, a village inside Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. A beautiful Instagram profile called Seesuechtig and created by talented Anja Hapke, made us want to visit Rostock in the first place, a relatively short drive from Berlin, where we spent the month of February. Anja's photography is one of my favorite things to look and marvel at on Instagram, and I still can't figure out how does she manage to take a perfect shot just about each time. I contacted Anja upon our arrival in Berlin, with a couple of questions about the region of Vorpommern and places that she'd recommend us to visit. She was kind and friendly, and answered with a ton of ideas (some of which we unfortunately didn't have time to realise, but saving them for the next time). We met for a drink in Rostock, talking about her region, tourism, social networks and the community they're creating. Connecting people have really been a positive side of it all.
I'm waking up in a warm, cozy room with red walls and fluffy white sheets. It is still quite dark, and a ray of dim light is falling on my slippers on the floor. Even though I'm enjoying the warmth of the bed, I'm curious to look out through the window. I take a peek and say to Luka: "I don't think we'll be going anywhere this morning."
