I’m sitting in the train with Sara and friends travelling up north towards Rabenholz (here).
This train ride is one of my favourites. From Luebeck to Kiel takes around an hour or so by train, and there is one lovelier small town after another. The most quaint train station in Germany is also on this route. It is Ploen. It is an old wooden station that was restored beautifully a few years ago: on one side the station, on the other side of the lake. Between the lake and the train is only one narrow pedestrian path.
The sky has clouded over… so much for the weather forecast. It doesn’t really mater anyway, where we are going is fun in any weather. This is the first time Sara is doing anything other than going to a birthday party with her friends. They have been in the same class since last year, but, as seems prevalent, the school friends don’t seem to do much socialising outside of school. Isn’t that strange?
