Start your brisk morning at Hannover Germany Domotex Show with a fabulous cup of coffee and delightful European Croissant. Yes, it is delicious and you will feel guilty, but you do so much walking you’ll burn it off fast!
Catch everyone biking it to work or walking to work! This is a site to see, when you see so many on bikes, and it isn’t just the under 40 group doing this either! The traffic seems pretty light in Hannover compare New York, Chicago or Los Angeles in the USA, as many of take our cars or cab it. (OK, some of us train it) But, in Hannover you see so many people biking it (even in the dead of winter) the traffic wasn’t obnoxious.
They say, “Getting there is half the fun!”. This is certainly the case as you make your way to the train heading over to the Domotex Rug and Carpet Show in Hannover. If you are an interior designer, architect who loves old buildings or a furniture buyer with a keen eye, you will love your commute to the show! It is the nooks and crannies and wonderful old buildings, parks and churches that keep you wanting to seem more of this city while you do business at Domotex. OK, we know…the sources, the business…we’re getting there. We just had to take a moment to smell the roses!
Meet Guney Carpet or Weavart.net. We are partial to roses and this particular source seems to have the same passion! The rose patterns of these unusual tapestry tightly woven tightly kilims were amazing! There was also the patch work version of the rose kilims that were also very striking. Be sure to connect with this source; Feti, the manager of Guney Carpet was a lovely man with a lovely smile with beautiful quality rugs. We love his link on his city of Istanbul…on his website too! Maybe we stop by for a visit, Feti and see your happy smile again!

Finally, as you commute your way back to your hotel, you can’t afford to miss out on one old charming Hannover street in Germany we stumbled upon with one of the tastiest wines with Christel Kuhlmann. Her small and charming wine shop (we bought the best tasting reds & whites for about $13.00 USD per bottle…amazing wine from France and Germany) We love discovering our gems in the rough!
