    Kayaking in Lagos and nightlife in Albua

    September 9, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    .... Later more text..
    It is amazing what is possible to do in only one day. So many impressions.
    Get up early, look for a kayak tour, having breakfast, run to the marina habour to search the kayak company and then: doing one of the most amazing kayak trips I have ever done!
    I I already did tours in Polynesia, New Zealand, Hawaii, France, Sweden.
    This one tops probably all of them!
    After that I went by car one hour to the east, Albufeira, famous for its nightlife.
    And the prediction was right.
    Even drunk people, or better: especially drunk people have dreams, that com straight from.....unconsciousness!
    One wants to be a fit bitch, the other cocktail and party, the other 8 kids (one brought into the relationship already plus 4 own ones).
    Anyway, it was a funny evening and the party crowd loved that welcomed entertainment!

    Day of hitchhikers and south west point

    September 9, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Today was the day of hitchhikers.
    First I was giving a lift to a father with his daughter.
    150km from somewhere in the middle of nowhere to Sagres. Pablo and Carolina. The best thing: somewhere in between, Pablo asked me if I would like to have a coffee and a sweet, a specialty here. I could not resist.
    I drove him to his house somewhere on the road, where he dropped his clothes because he had to continue to another place.
    Then I went to Sagres and the most southern western point of Europe. This is special to me because I went here with one of my best friends when I was 17 by hitchhiking all the way down from Germany.
    I had to drink a Sagres beer as this was cult and a running gag for us.
    On my way to Lagos I picked up a girl, who seemed to have a long way walking in the sun.
    It turned out that we were both interested in art, paintings and creativity.
    I spend the day at one of the beautiful beaches at Lagos. In town there were 3 hitchhikers from Austria and France. I had no real plan so I drove them where they wanted to go. Just 5km. I know, that by foot it takes an hour and by car just some minutes. So I drove them to the lighthouse. That was a good idea, because I was rewarded with a nice sunset and a special scenery in the very special cliff area.

    Nice surprise after sudden wake up

    September 6, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    I actually had two mornings. Or two wake ups:
    First was at 5.30h in the morning after just 3hours of sleep. Actually I told myself, that I wanted to take care more about myself and look that I get enough sleep. As sleep is the best medicine. I think, that the one night in Santiago with a good 7hours of sleep was the reason, why my hurting tooth got well again just in one day.
    Nevertheless I offered a very special person to be the private chauffeur from the airport-hostel to the airport. It was just 1km, but a very dark und dodgy area for a woman to walk alone at night.
    So I really got woken up by her at 5.30h and I played the private taxi driver. It was early, but it was a pleasure for me to do her this favor.
    I came back from the airport and parked my van somewhere in nowhere close to the airport.
    Luckily I could manage to fall asleep again,... Just got woken up a couple of times by some aggressive dogs, who were barking whenever someone passed by.
    So my second wakeup was, when someone was knocking at my van at about 9 o clock. I climbed down from the first floor of my mobile castle to the ground floor to see who is knocking.
    I immediately told them: "sorry!" because I was blocking their gate. At night I was not aware that it was a gate, because it looked like a normal wall.
    My feeling of "feeling guilty" and "the people must be angry with me" vanished after seconds when the guy told me, that a Volkswagen bus like mine is his dream. He told me that he has the older version, VW T3 from 1983, and we were chatting in half Spanish, half Portuguese about the VW Bullies.
    He asked me if I would like to come in for a coffee, what I really appreciated.
    I had blocked the gate of a workshop, where they modify cars to be able to transport disabled people and wheelchairs.
    I got in, we were talking, and finally they were even drawing their dreams in my hexagons.
    We had a funny time!
    They told me, that they will be in Germany next week at a exhibition for their show cars and after I told them, that I was working as a car designer for some years and did the Papamobile for pope Benedikt, we exchanged our contact data. I will update that later.
    That was a really nice company and really friendly, warm-hearted people!

    Arrival at the "Camino de Santiago"

    August 27, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    I decided spontaneously (yesterday) to walk the Camino de Santiago for about 180km. I know, that some people plan a trip like that for up to a year, but I thought: "Why not doing it just now. I am already so close!" So I asked my friend, who was already walking the Camino since 3 days to tell me where he is so I will catch him up by car and join the walk.Read more

    August 26, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    After this fantastic conference and our really, really superb BBQ party (2 times, the last 2 days!) with about 40 and 20 people in the garden of our Airbnb villa, I visited the cathedral of Porto and drove to a surfers beach, just about 30km south of Porto.

    Porto, conference for agile workshops

    August 21, 2019 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Actually this was my main goal or motivation to reach Porto as a destination. I am here for 3 days at a conference or open space format, where about 200 workshop facilitators meet. That means: we are all in the job of helping companies to do innovation or do a change management or change a Mindset of companies to think more creative, to think more our of the box, to behave more flexible and actually change the philosophy of companies.
    We are the pioneers of thinking in a different way. We are here to invent new creative workshop formats, to exchange experience to question existing ways of working and organization. I feel like in the epicenter of change and we habe the power and motivation to really have a positive impact for the world and for the future.
    I have facilitated 3 sessions about creativity, innovation Sprint and about drawing your dreams.
    People liked it, when I gave them instructions and sketching advices what they could apply immediately and they were happy that they improved their sketching skills within minutes. They were surprised by themselves what they were able to sketch in short time.
