The Gorton Fisherman in Rostock!

Even though Rostock isn’t actually on the sea, it definitely has a maritime feel to it. So I wasn’t surprised, as I wandered along the river, to see many moored boats.

And I shouldn’t have been surprised to run into this very famous person, but I was!

So who did I run into in Rostock?

  6. I love the way towns are using ugly buildings for some fabulous street art. This looks great and obviously has some significance to the area!

      That is one thing that really attracted me to this! I’m not a big fan of graffiti but this kind of art is ok with me.
