The same square that had been empty the day before. At first we though that it must be some kind of demonstration against who knows what. Many people were carrying signs and were holding blue and yellow ribbons. It did seem like a friendly occasion so we weren’t sure what to think. Curious as we were, we went to take a closer look.

We are heading north in spring nonetheless!   Our first night in the dark Our vanlife journey started in Germany last week after our last family visit in Lingen.
