prove of life

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

I’m aware I haven’t done much here recently, but to be honest there were other things taking my interest away. On the other hand I was busy as well with work and besides Turkey, which I have written last about, work did even bring me over to South Africa recently.

To be honest … something I would never have thought about myself to be possible to happen.

Now I have to say that I very much liked this trip and even it was for work only and rather rather busy, it had some touch of heading off and flying out there to somewhere fancy and starting to discover new things there. Luckily, I was even able to make some friends there and therefore eitherway, for work or for leisure, I’m expecting myself to head there again someday.

In general my actual work (project management) is very interesting at all and as for the project does include overall EMEA, I’m looking forward seeing Russia and Poland soon. People around are even start kidding asking me whether or not I’m doing this all for pleasure saving money, I would usually spend for vacation instead.

Now I for sure confirm it is working only! And everyone saying or thinking something different is …. simply a liar! 

I just not hesitate to confess, that it has some attraction as well. It’s just sad I can’t share more about my trips though.
At least I will update you with my impressions about the new countries I’m going to see soon.

Besides that conditions over here are actual lovely and sunny and besides the usual work getting things around the house in shape again, the time over the weekend was short doing a few fun rides with Suzi again. Yeaaaaaaaah!

Ending Season

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Today we had a gorgeous autumn day with an all over sunny day. Quickly commited yesterday wit a friend, I headed out of the house early and drove to his house and together we headed off to the perhaps last longer push bike trip together this year.

Although sun is still strong and warming, authumn wind does already feel cold and I was quit happy about I had thought to put on my wind breaker. The landscape scenery actually is most beautiful and colored, while the color green is already on it’s way back. Now making room for yellow, red and brown.

Along the countryside roads nearly every farm and shop does offer fruits, new wine and home made onion pies to buy. And seeing all cars and folks on the road it nearly looks like everyone is keep to get his or her piece of it.

In some way it was a little bit surprising seeing so much people out on the road, as for it was election weekend here in Germany and I really doubt all others had already voted like me. Not I personally would be a very political person at all. But I see it as an "obligation" to vote for every responsible adult. But enough of this!

… as more interesting I think is, that on one of the perhaps last really friendly "summer" days this year I decided against the motorbike prefering the pushbike about. And even now feeling a bit tired about I still think about it as the right decision.

Next few weekends will now be filled with work around the house on on the property getting everything in shape for the winter season and especially ready before we will head off into our vacation. This time I feel about it as very much over due and I’m really looking forward to this time off. The and hopefully having a short and sweet 2nd summer this year.

 

A new toy

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Life is fast! And often it isn’t really easy to keep your mood up.

As I shared here last my weekend lately wasn’t one of the best once I had ever and looking back I just can say I’m happy about it is over.
Belonging to the Internet access I wasn’t really able to archive much. I’m getting the actual connection a bit cheaper and doubled the speed, but it is far away from the speed I wanted to have. On the other hand this new company offering the 32 MBit connection does not really seems to be very reliable and therefore it might not be a very worse thing I’m now not dealing with them.

But you know what? …. Donating a little gift (huh .. little?!) to yourself always is a good way to raise your mood again…..

And so did I  !!

Quickly decided I’ve ordered something I was wishing to buy since ages, but never was able to justify for myself so far, and as it looks it is shipped very quickly. So with a bit of luck I will be able to hold it in my hands tomorrow or the day after and I’m "very" sure my friend Wilf and me will have to exchange about it a lot.

For you here ….. sorry about! ….. at first, I will remain with the question about what I’ve ordered plainly not answered, to simply ensure I will have something left I can write about tomorrow.

The long weekend

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Waaaaaaaaahhhhh…… Was that a nice and pleasant long easter weekend this year.

Sun, sun, sun and even more sun on all four days and we really enjoy it very much.

Of course there was the opening of the weekend with another long ride with Suzi on Friday. And can you imagine me looking surprised finding a real new "imagine NEW!!" track in an area I always though I could drive it blind?

A gorgeous short track bringing together two of my favorite bike routes now being combind a real dream of a biker without the need to drive between them on a bigger and crowded fast road heavily used by cars and truck.

You can now stay in the forest and all is green and calm …. that keen that we even scared a deer searching for food next to the track! Poor deer! …. Must have thought idiots are rushing by though.

Saturday then again was some more busy day again with preparing things in the garden and putting plants out of the house again where we had sheltered them during the winter month.

But then again working on saturday was balanced by some relaxed BBQ on Sunday , sitting together and chatting with friends. Finally drifting again in lots of lauging lokking old and age pictures and video clips showing us all a few years younger ….

 Today now with conditions … even forecasted different … there was no question about, me doing a second longer extended ride with Suzi again. 🙂

First Ride?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The week is the very first really friendly and sunny one this year. All over pleasant spring conditions and it getting constanly 1 or 2 °C warmer every day. And best news of all is, this conditions shall remain all the rest of the week and all weekend.

Yesterday I hadn’t a chance to do, but today I guess my stand for working will not really last very long and I’m already dreaming about some short working day and heading of for some ride soon.

To be honest I’m not even sure which bike I will prefer then. But does it matter?  Out in the sun … that is the aim! 😉
