Kiel is a German port town on the Baltic coast, widely known for its yearly ‘Kiel week’ – the biggest yearly regatta in the world! Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade. Kiel Week is also a festival, Volksfest and fair as well as a maritime event. But Kiel offers more: a slew of museums (zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial, and military museums), a city centre with relaxed atmosphere, and the water and shores of the Kieler Fjord.
Buckie is situated on the north coast of Scotland in the Speyside area. It’s a quiet town, surrounded by beautiful scenery, so put on your hiking boots and explore! You’ll find magnificent coastal scenery all along the Banff coast, with easy access to areas such as Glenlivet, Speyside and the Cairngorms. As is typical of towns in the area, Buckie is well served by golf courses. The historic port west of town was filled in during the 1970s. Today it is a park – well worth a visit.
