I guess in the meanwhile everyone knows how I love Hamburg, right? I say it and write it whenever I have the opportunity. In Hamburg, the second biggest city of Germany, I felt home for the first time after I left my home town Istanbul. It is the only German city I felt fully welcome. It might be difficult to get to know people as the Hamburgers are very reserved people. But once they spend time with you and get to know you, you can be sure that you just made friends for ever.
On every occasion I write about how much I love living in Hamburg. The proof is here. Now it’s time to write about the neighborhoods that make this city to the one I love living in so much. I know many of my Hamburger friends will hate me for writing this post as this kind of writings attract more tourist and attention which causes gentrification.
Someone once told me that the presence of street art shows the intellectual richness of a city. I never stopped believing in that statement.
I close my eyes and see posts, comments, pictures and videos I’ve been consuming the whole day in the social media.
I open my eyes and see new posts, new comments, new pictures and videos.
I wrote about the reasons why I love Hamburg so much and one of them is because the city is so very near to the sea. Yes, one of the advantages of living in Hamburg is definitely the countless day trip possibilities to old, small fisherman villages and harbour towns in North and Baltic Sea.
