Week 51: @plutik (Petr)

BO_ezv1CUAA3p8p

Who are you and what are you doing in Bremen?

Hi, i am Petr. I am 24 years old and currently studying Maritime Technologies in Bremerhaven (better described as engineering stuff with open waters).
In the free time i am a member of the german lifeguard association (or DLRG), playing classical guitar, politically active and visit some concerts =)

What’s your Twitter account?

You can find me as @plutik.

Are you originally from Bremen? If not, what’s your story?

No, i am from Sankt-Petersburg and moved very early to Bremen since a lot of the international shipping companies prefer this location. I love both of the city’s and their maritime connections. Both are unique in their own ways, and have a lot to offer.

But i spent at least half of my life here, and its for sure: big port-citys are a nice place to stay, but Bremen is a great place to live =)

What do you like most of Bremen?

The size, the location, the weather, the river, the open-minded people, the richness of public culture and educational possibilities…
…but to go anywhere only by bike is just awesome.

What’s your favourite place in Bremen?

To your surprise, it’s not the “Viertel”. It’s the Weser.
There are a lot of nice, quite and hidden places around this river. Go running around the “Weserdeich” in the misty morning, jump into the “Werdersee” on hot middays, chill out at “Werftinsel” after a shopping trip, grab a beer at the “Schlachte” in the night. Or hoist the sails and take a boat to Bremerhaven!

What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?

1. Visit a concert at the Lagerhaus, Schlachthof or Römer.
2. Go surfing at the northsea directly after an early lecture and a coffee at the StuCa.
3. Grab a drink at the “Furchtbar”
4. Run along the Ochtum river or the Weser in search of #ingress portals or new locations.
5. Or just stay near home in Grolland and annoy anyone around me with my guitar.

Yes, I am from Bremen, and I love this city. I never ever want to move away. Spent one year abroad, feeling very homesick.

What do you like most of Bremen?

It is home to absolutely the right people, it has absolutely the right size and the right geographic
location as well. It’s where my loved ones live. It’s where I feel at home.

I love to be in the “Viertel”, at my house in “Pusdorf”, at Weser Ufer Park and in any location where there is good handmade live music.

What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?

  1. Visit the Bremen town hall
  2. Visit annual live music festival “Breminale”
  3. Eat at restaurant “Divino”

Who are you and what are you doing in Bremen?

Hi, my name is Bianca, I’m an English teacher, mainly adult teaching, VHS and so, and a portrait painter. I found my homebase in Bremen-Findorff and couldn’t be happier here. The roof terrace helps, too.

What’s your Twitter account?

I am @biancaschroeter. I have an impressive count of what, 15 tweets? Am a total newbee and immensely enjoying it.

Are you originally from Bremen? If not, what’s your story?

I was raised down south, close to Aschaffenburg and grew up with Germans and Americans. Spent some time in the States, France, Cologne, Ruhr area and finally ended up here in the beautiful north. Dabbled in history and American Studies at university, became a professional tattooer, portrait painter, city guide and finally English teacher. I mainly teach at the Bremen Volkshochschule – great place, go and check us out!

What do you like most of Bremen?

First time I visited Bremen I was so surprised how lively and colorful this little city is. Everybody seems to know everybody and people are remarkably tolerant and open towards strangers. Once you get used to translating “Och, nech” into the longer sentences of other German regions the people here are most elaborate. Bremen has been kind to me.

What’s your favourite place in Bremen?

  • Findorff, the market, Hemmstrasse, Torfkanal, Bürgerpark
  • Sure, The Viertel and Osterdeich
  • The “Wallanlagen” with those remarkable, beautiful old trees in the middle of the city

What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?

  1. Check out nice aerial view across Bremen from the roof terrace of the Bamberger building, Faulenstrasse; it’s on the 10th floor and for free
  2. Little round of drinks starting at Bermudadreieck, maybe dabble a bit at having a “Krabbeldiewandnuff” at Eisen and maybe finish off with some dancing at Tower
  3. Saturday morning at Findorff market, have the second coffee of the day, try a “Fischbroetchen” for first breakfast, buy cheese and olives, maybe enjoy a bit of Turkish pastry, get flowers and/or herbs and take bike back home – after talking to everybody you know.
  4. Scaring tourists in the evening when everything is quiet by dropping a coin in the “Bremer Loch” close to the town hall.
  5. Teerhof, gotta get your modern art fix somewhere; beautiful building, too.
