Elbe River Boat Trip

My husband's bosses love to sail. And this year marks the 10th anniversary of the company. So they decided to take everyone on a little boat trip on the Elbe river. It was a really long and stressful day for the parents of a very lively 3 year old, but I suppose everyone else got to relax... Still, it was an adventure for Littles and the weather was perfect. Here are the pictures:

They even had us solve some navigational quiz with a compass and everything. Way out of our league...

a huge freighter passing us with ease

sailing past the homes of the rich and famous of Hamburg

passing the Airbus plant

if you look closely, you can see the plane (or part of a plane...) inside
This was our second boat trip with the company and even if it was stressful for us as parents, sailing is really special and it has the power to take you away from everything else. I wish we had the funds to do something like this more often... I know, it wouldn't be as special anymore...
