I’ve seen the world and as half Spanish and half German but I haven’t seen my own countries. In October for the first time in 13 years I visited the main land of Spain and August I visited for the very first time the north sea in northern Germany.
Föhr – the second largest North Sea island of Germany
After all the traveling in Southeast Asia I returned to Germany exhausted therefore I spontaneously decided to take some days off and drive to the North Sea. A place I have never been before.
Föhr ist the second largest North Sea Island of Germany and boy it’s beautiful. It’s only 12 by 7 kms but amazing. We had a little house rented in one of the towns on the island. From there we were only 5 minutes away from any part of the island, which was perfect!
For the first time in many years I had a holiday. I wasn’t traveling in Föhr. I stayed at one place and didn’t move. I had time to read books, play board games, and simply relax. Moreover, I had NO INTERNET!!! I was freaking out a little I have to admit, but I survived. It’s a crazy experience I have to tell you… not being able to know what’s going on… how sad is this! But I managed and survived. And moreover I was relaxed after a week on the island!
Walking across the mudflats
The wadden sea is an attraction on its own. Nowhere in the world can you walk from one island to another on the ground of the sea. It’s an incredible experience and a lot of fun. On the way you find oysters with pearls in it. If they are open you are allowed to take them home… otherwise it’s not allowed and you will regret it very soon cause they start to stink pretty bad once they are dry and too long at the fresh air.
While walking from Föhr to Amrum you might pass at a sand bank full with seals, an incredible experiencing standing in the middle of the sea about 50 meters away from seals.
How to get to Föhr
To get to Föhr you need to take the Ferry from Dagebüll to Wyk. You can take your car on the island since there is a street going around the island.
