On October 9th, 2021, we went to Lübben, Germany and stayed until October 22nd 2021 to visit our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. Lübben (Spreewald) is a town of 14,000 people, capital of the Dahme-Spreewald district in the Lower Lusatia region of Brandenburg, Germany.
We flew with Lufthansa. Travel was fraught with difficulties. We needed to register with the German authorities, but I could not because Lufthansa had made my name into one-word Sherrylynn instead of Sherry. Lufthansa said they could not change it. This caused me a great deal of difficulty registering with the German health authority because I didn’t have a matching name. The German health authority notice says that we could end this quarantine if we test negative within a certain period. In the English language to end something means you must have begun it. Guessing they may have used Google translate. This caused another anxious day or two trying to figure this one out. We didn’t need to quarantine, we are triple vaccinated. Lufthansa kept changing the flight times and gates. One of the papers said departure was on the 21st of October and another one on the 22nd. Apparently the 21 was the year. It was not clear to me; consequently, I under booked by one day for both the car rental and the hotel and had to correct that while in Germany. I’ll cover Corvid test issues in future posts.
We rented a nice little ground floor apartment at Adebarsoase Adebars Oasis – Accommodation: Oasis 1 (adebarsoase.de). The garden in the back leads to fields and the river Hauptspree. There was mist and frost there on the first morning.
First of many posts on Germany.
