I was on guard in Sennelager one delightful weekend. I got 'spammed' to be IC officers summer ball function venue guard, we got dropped off at some place in Schloss Neuhaus and had to make sure nobody left any bombs or stuff there overnight. The manager of the place gave me the keys to one of the fridges and it was loaded with many steaks, sausages etc and some rabbit food. 'help yourself' he says and heads out, you can use the smaller BBQ outside.
Somehow we ended up with a couple of beers each and sat up all night watching videos, eating way too much food and definitely not guarding anything.
Some years ago we docked in Montevideo for some unplanned repairs or something.
We were only there for the night and had to be back onboard by midnight (Cinderella leave).
Anyway, after banging some whores, eating a steak the size of a toilet seat and buying a chad cowboy hat, I ended up in the bar of a nice hotel where a wedding was taking place.
Quite unexpectedly they invited us in. So there was me and 6 or 7 oppos in footy shirts, jeans and trainers tearing into a sumptuous wedding buffet and drinking really nice wine, drunkenly trying to chat up the bridesmaids who didn't speak a word of English.
Midnight came way too quickly and we had to run back to the dockyard in order to get onboard on time.
It happened again some years later in Goa, except that wedding lasted for 3 days.
