A short time in Bremen

I tried to buy ticket from the machine but I had no coins and I was so conscious of everybody in the tram looking at me as if I was so stupid not to understand how it works (which I am sad to admit is almost true). So I went back to my seat and prayed that the next stop would be at the central station so I can get off before I get caught by the ticket control. But it was about 7 more stops until I saw some signs of the central station. I had seen some of Bremen while on the tram so I had a bit of a free tour.
When I got inside the central station I looked at the train schedules and saw that the next train that leaves for Hamburg was leaving in 10 minutes so I rushed myself inside. I couldn't find the ticket machines anywhere so I went straight to platform. Sometimes, I just can't think properly because instead of looking for the elevators, I used the stairs to get on the platforms and there were like not less than 30 steps and I had to carry about 35 kilos of weight (my baggages) with me. I didn't got on the train, unfortunatey, and had to go back down (I finally used the lift) to find the ticket machines.
The ticket machines wouldn't accept 50 euro bills so I went to the bookstore and bought some postcards which was actually a good idea since I collect them. I purchased my ticket and went up again and waited for the next train.
I will someday see more of Bremen and actually tour it and not just pass by. ^^
