#564 The Kiel Canal

Going around the Denmark peninsula on the way to Hamburg from Saint Petersburg takes a long time.

So today, Captain Jeremy navigates the MV Explorer through the Kiel Canal, a beautiful, 60-mile shortcut in northern Germany via the bucolic artificial waterway from the Baltic Sea to the North Sea.  We traveled this way five years ago and loved it.

Today is a gorgeous sunny day with many cyclists and pedestrians on the canal towpath eager to wave at our big blue ship.

Yours in enjoying a Kiel Canal redux,
