Bottle No. 80 Small World – The Picknick
As announced and planned for a while now, I spent the last weekend in Hamburg. I met with my mother and two of my three sisters, and we spend a grand day exploring Hamburg. On Saturday we went on a boat tour through the new and old parts of the port. In the Speicherstadt I simply dropped bottle No. 80 in. I don’t think that it will leave the Speicherstadt. It will hopefully float around a little, excite a couple of people who turn out unable to get it out, until someone manages, and contacts me.
Dispatch of bottle No. 80 Small World – The Picknick
On the next day was my scheduled dispatch day. I met with my sister in law Lena, and Ina from Bottled Fortune. We met at the Landungsbrücken and boarded the ferry to Finkenwerder. That is the same ferry I took three years ago. We were ver lucky with the weather.

bottle No. 78 “Small World – The Chair” ready to go in.
and there it goes
Ina tossing in her “puzzle bottle” – the message was cut up in at least 8 parts, from what I could see, and whoever finds it will have to piece it together first. – I like that idea!
Lena putting in bottle No. 79 “Small World – The Deck Chair”
And then I put in bottle No. 74 “Small World – The Suitcase” of which unfortunately there are no pictures.
I wish all our bottles good travels and kind finders. I would write a little more, about how much fun Hamburg and meeting with Ina was, about the bottles, about the happy feelings I have now that I started to let the first couple of small world bottles go. But I am so tired that I have trouble keeping my eyes open. – Maybe I’ll write more another time, maybe it will have to wait until someone finds a bottle.
I mentioned before that things are currently busy. The main thing is that we are about to move house, and I will move studio. More about that can be found on my blog here. And if you want to hear a bit more about our wonderful day in Hamburg, head over to bottled fortune. Ina did a wonderful job summing it up!
