A hotel room of your own when travelling solo is truly a fine thing and Hamburg’s East Hotel took my breath away…
From the curved wrought iron sink to 60s influenced bed in and decor in shades of chocolate, caramel and latte, it was easily one of the coolest rooms I’ve ever stayed in. And extremely spacious for a standard room with a row of separate cubicles for loo, shower and cupboard and safe. The time I spent there – after a busy day travelling, attending the Olympus PEN workshop and giving a blogger talk – was quite precious.
I had the most gorgeous night’s sleep after a delicious barbeque and nattering incessantly with Laetitia and what counts as a lie-in for me these days, lolling in bed reading the news for a blissful hour from eight to nine. Bittersweet to pack up and get ready to go, but breakfast with Laetitia turned into a mega-chat and then we popped out for a brief photowalk ending in a juice and fresh mint tea at a cute little cafe and one of my favourite duo selfies ever!
I’ve still got a load of Hamburg photos to show you, but the posts might be interspersed with an outfit from today taken during an afternoon out in Spitalfields – the market was home to an independent music label event. We made our way from there to the Bethnal Green animal farm and onto Hackney Hardware. Tonight we’ve got the last couple of episodes of Penny Dreadful lined up, totally worth watching if you haven’t yet – gothic horror with Eva Green at her gorgeously scary best!
Just a little early morning in-room magic trick… !
Could I just loll forever, please?
Oh, so tired… Goodnight, y’all.
