To Germany

I'm off to Germany and Kiel tomorrow night with one of our ferries. After almost 4 years in the company I'm ashamed to say that I've only been on our ferries to Denmark.

After a not so funny crossing over the North Sea to England about 23 years ago (has it really been that long?!) I'm not very happy to spend the night on a ferry. That's a trip I will never forget. The wind was so bad they had to turn of the engines for a couple of hours because the waves were too high to go against.

This time I've been promised a cabin above the water line and pretty smooth ride since we never really get out on the open sea. I'm also in the company of 20 colleagues so I'm pretty sure the time will fly.
