On my this years trip to germany I was in Hanover and also, like every year at my aunts house near Mannheim. (This is also where I stayed last year when I had an internship at the Nationaltheater Mannheim – a very big theatre in Mannheim).
Since Nicole, a fellow costumer, lives in the same small village and many others in the same area we decided to meet up in costume.
Nicole proposed to go and take a small steam train trip since we never did something similar and it was a great idea because we had a blast!
We were a small group of 5 (summer is always a bit difficult for meet ups because of school and such things) but it was so nice to see all of them!
The steam train we took is called ‚Kuckucksbähnel‘ and belongs to the DGDE (a train museum).
We took the steam train from Neustadt an der Weinstraße to go to Elmstein where we stayed for a few hours before we went back.
We talked a lot, had fun with a water basin but the best part of the day was the train from 1904.
I wore my checkered dress I also wore for our Sommerfrische in Vienna. It was very hot that day but it was bearable in the dress since most of the fabrics are made with natural fibres so it could breath a bit. I was also very lucky because the ashes from the train were not detectable at all since my dress is grey/black. The others had more problems with that! Especially Nadine and Nicole with their white dresses.
And this is why all those travel dresses are dark in color! 😀
