Farewell waving to Queen Victoria


A couple of weeks ago, I went on a beautiful spring walk along the river Elbe in Hamburg, when the cruise ship Queen Victoria left the harbor. It was a silent, sunny and imposing atmosphere, when the huge vessel passed by.

Waving “goodbye” to people I did not even know and seeing them waving back at the cruise’s rails, was a touching moment. Maybe because I myself love the moment of leaving for a traveling adventure.

But also, since it seemed as if I could see them smiling. It reminded me of myself, when I was a little girl, waving at foreigners out of my parents’ car to raise a smile on their faces and to make them wave back.
