The Travelin’ Man: The Last VIIC U-Boat

The booze cruise left from Gothenburg for Kiel. The amazing part of this leg was that you enter the water channel approaching Kiel on the exact same route as you used in the Silent Hunter. The Type VIIC U-boat that is on display in Laboe, Germany is the world’s only surviving VIIC submarine.

So yes, we took the metro to the train depot in Stockholm where we boarded the train to Gothenburg where we took a cruise ship to Kiel where we took a ferry to Laboe to see a submarine dry docked on a beach! Phew! Sure, we could have taken a plane and been there in a couple of hours, but nowhere was the old adage “It’s not the destination, but the journey that matters” more true than on this trip. I mean, yes, the destination was fabulous and was the whole reason for the journey, but we decided to take the scenic route and enjoy the journey as much as possible.
