Written by Garry, last edited by Garry on

What better way to mark seventy years of the state of NRW and Düsseldorf as the state capital than to create the #LassDichDrücken hashtag (let yourself be hugged) and hold a three day festival across the city centre and banks of the Rhine?

Caravanning as a form of holiday-making is enjoying a constant rise in popularity and undergoing a real boom. Everything the market has to offer will be on display at the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf held at the exhibition centre very soon.

Big city business, small town charm. It’s simple; Düsseldorf punches far above it’s weight. The capital of North Rhine Westphalia is a gem that is full of surprises. Düsseldorf is truly cosmpolitan, friendly, exciting, safe and can be a great place to live.

Regular readers will know that my precious dog left this life on earth a couple of weeks ago and I thank all the wonderful people who accepted my indulgence, sent their love and supportive comments. I’m getting better at not feeling sorry for myself, allowing her to move on and rejoicing the sixteen years we were together. Thank you dear Kiva, I love you.
