  • faces with putin good evening good evening good  evening greetings hello so we are at our gate  

  • yes almost ready to board and we thought i hope  you can hear me through this mask you know yeah um  

  • we thought we would give you one more clue as to  where we are headed what would that could be i was  

  • thinking the clue could be it is a country we have  previously visited and filmed on youtube oh yeah  

  • yes let's leave it at that more than once  more than what yes more than one okay

  • we have very good news the best the best focus the  best news we are not sitting with anyone else look  

  • at the lake space actually i can't really see it  empty this is awesome on long haul flights this is  

  • a slice of almost business class we'll be  able to get some sleep oh yeah yeah i love it

  • me

  • good morning good morning good morning we  are approaching we are beginning our descent  

  • coming up to land soon yeah we are in terms  of the flight it was a pretty decent flight  

  • um i'd say about a medium level of turbulence  but considering we crossed the atlantic we've  

  • had much worse than this before so justlittle bit of sleep um but anyways we want  

  • to give you the final clue ooh what could it  be so at this point we're willing to tell you  

  • it is in europe yeah crossing the  atlantic with a bit of a giveaway right

  • so sam here is of the opinion that  the best way to get over jet lag is by  

  • eating it's just stuff you're gonna be  eating and eating if it's lunch time  

  • in the local check out this schnitzel sandwich  

  • it's huge huh yeah and then we've got a salami and  cheese one here sparkling apple what's it called  

  • apple short it's like apple juice but  fizzy like with mineral water oh it's aphil  

  • charlotte there we go let's try this enjoy your  meal that's a nice big piece of schnitzel and  

  • sandwich these are premium sandwiches i remember  that about germany in previous trips just how much  

  • we love the sandwiches we eat them at bus  stations train stations on the go there's so  

  • many good bakeries and especially sandwiches  here wow and the pastries don't forget those

  • hello we made it we made it we have arrived inam so jet-lagged i don't know if we've revealed  

  • the destination to you yet but we may  or may not guest we are in germany  

  • and specifically and specifically the city of  hamburg yeah so we actually flew into munich  

  • that was our seven hour and forty minute flight  um your first clue and yeah then we had a bit of  

  • a layover there it was a good layover so much so  that i was i basically passed out on a chair for  

  • half of it and you captured that sam was the king  of napping the king of siestas if i had not been  

  • there you would not have made your connecting  flights well i'd still i'd be in germany but in  

  • munich i'd be in the other part of germany oh  man the itinerary would have changed yeah but  

  • we wanted to talk a little bit about our travel  experience this being the first time that we're  

  • traveling in this post-pandemic world yeah and  i mean there were definitely a few interesting  

  • things along the way for starters you you need  to be vaccinated or you need to be tested or  

  • you need to have proof of recovery in order to  enter germany exactly right now we had to show  

  • both of our vaccinations yeah they were checking  it at numerous stations yeah so they checked that  

  • in canada before we got onto our flight in  germany and they also even checked it when  

  • we came to our hotel this evening they wanted to  see proof so just something to be aware of they're  

  • also stricter with masks here you can't havespecific type of mask which i'll show you actually  

  • yeah so i was wearing my uh my halifax cloth mask  no cloth masks yeah i i kind of like when i was  

  • told hey you gotta you gotta change this i was  looking around i'm like oh my gosh yeah no one  

  • else does have like a homie yeah so they want  the surgical style mask exactly and what else  

  • so the other thing that i mean i obviously  noticed was the flight over to germany was  

  • wasn't at full capacity it was about 70 80 we got  really lucky with that middle seat makes all the  

  • difference to sort of be able to sleep we took  turns back and forth i'd lean in he'd lean in and  

  • we kind of napped on that overnight we kind of  nap but it was somewhat of a turbulent flight so  

  • yes not too much of it but it was kind of like  the mild turbulence that when you're lying down it  

  • feels like you could be on a boat or a train yeah  you got you kind of kind of tricking yourself yes  

  • so the flight from munich to hamburg was as  smooth as can be one hour long yes we flew with  

  • lufthansa always a pleasure every single time  yeah we've had a lot of good flights with them  

  • like the best experiences are with that airline  and then we arrived in hamburg and then we had to  

  • to seek out transportation so it involved taking  a commuter train okay so we took the s-1 into the  

  • bonhoeff which is the main central station and  then from there we had to transfer to the u-bahn  

  • and just travel two stops so we're not too  too far away we're staying in huffin city  

  • which is kind of like the port area where you  have the old red brick buildings it's probably  

  • the most beautiful and iconic part of it exactly  i was that's that was the word i was gonna say  

  • it looks so iconic it looks like when i think of  hamburg any pictures or images or videos i've seen  

  • this is the hamburg so it's so cool we couldn't  be in a better location we're surprisingly feeling  

  • decent i mean we didn't definitely didn't get our  full sleep but we're feeling good it's like six  

  • or seven pm we've showered hot showers refreshed  clean clothes we're gonna go out for dinner we're  

  • gonna have a nice walk maybe visit an attraction  or two yeah and then we're gonna go to bed at a  

  • local a reasonable local time please and let us  sleep through the night that's the goal so that is  

  • our plan to beat jet lag if we if we can do that  on night one we we we might have smooth sailings  

  • there it really depends i don't allow myself to  sleep i'm like i'm too excited to be here i feel  

  • like part of it is we're running off of a bit of  adrenaline we haven't done a trip like this in  

  • well years so it's so exciting it has been  almost two years 20 months guys 20 months we're  

  • so excited to be here and um yeah so i thought we  would also give you a little overview of what to  

  • expect in the upcoming videos so for this trip to  germany we are teaming up with the german national  

  • tourism office for the first 10 days or so so  they've created a really cool itinerary where  

  • we're going to be showcasing a lot of smaller  and lesser known destinations even though we're  

  • starting and finishing off in big cities hamburg  and berlin there's gonna be a lot of like tranquil  

  • places more tranquil destinations in between so  we're super excited there's gonna be castles and  

  • that suits us well cute towns and then afterwards  we've decided to extend our flights and actually  

  • spend a full month in germany and we are planning  to head south down to bavaria so i'm really  

  • excited for the mountains the hiking so nature  the food oh yeah oh yeah i can't wait so from
