    Another fine, illustrated trip report, thanks. Just one minor point: Are you absolutely sure the Rostock Christmas Markets are open until the END of January???

      Thanks Frank. And you are correct, it’s the beginning of January. I’ve corrected it (wishful thinking?).

    I LOVE taking this travel journey with you! Great writing and wonderful stories. Congrats on taking the historic baptismal plunge today – love how you tied in the symbolism about your writing. Keep plunging and the journey with unfold one dip at a time [roll eyes/smile].

      Thanks so much. It’s truly what I was thinking about when I took every, really cold, step. It was a real sense of accomplishment when I did it.

    Nice. Loved the toe-dipping ritual. Always nice to connect those experiences.

      Thanks Barb. Yes, I like to have a ritual or two while traveling. I also always dunk my head beneath any waterfall I find whenever possible (Alaska was cold). And there’s now the beginning of a magnet collection.

    A fun post, Carole. I visited Warnemunde on a Baltic cruise a couple of years ago — it’s the cruise port for Berlin, though Berlin is a long (and expensive) excursion from there. So I reversed your footsteps and took the train to Rostock. It is a charming medieval city. I especially liked its ornate old city hall and the very cool town square, a great place to have a beer (or gluhwein). And if you venture into one of the ice cream shops, you’ll see people tucking into some of the most decadent sundaes you’ve ever seen.

      Aw man, I didn’t get any ice cream. I was robbed! Actually, I’ve seen people here eating ice cream but at 42 degrees and rainy every day, it’s somehow less appealing. Thanks for traveling with me here.
