    The friends tour continues

    June 14, 2020 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    After a day helping Anne and Quinh move to their new home, we got back on the bicycles today. It rained when we left Behringersdorf, so we were already pretty wet when we arrived at Barbara's in Nuremberg. We enjoyed an extended breakfast before heading to Weißenburg to visit Rico, Vanessa and their daughter Nora.
    Luckily it didn't rain all afternoon although the weather forecast had warned us otherwise. We had to get out of Nuremberg along some busy roads, but once away from the city, we cycled on quiet roads through hops fields and passed some castles.

    Vegetables?

    December 13, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    I have no idea on the German food front, where the vegetables went? I haven’t seen a green veg in days. Come to think of it there is no salt and pepper and ketchup comes only in little packets. However on the other hand they are very concerned about my food allergies and they charge my 1 euro for every glass of tap water.

    End result. I’m thirsty and might be getting scurvy.

    Afternoon and evening cruising

    August 18, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Making our way to Vienna. Afternoon and evening cruising the Danube and through our 1st lock, more to come. Great meal, excellent wines, fun table companions and the best chef! Then up to the top level for star gazing, Limoncello shots and passage through the first lock.Read more

    New Friends

    December 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 0 °C

    At the dinner last night I was randomly seated with two couples. One from near Augsburg and the other from Stuttgart. The latter was recently on the Stuttgart City Council and the former are my new friends Manfred and Ute Schmidt. The meal and music were great and very “modern” with foams and cold soups. Today I met up with Ute and Manfred and toured the winter market and a church. They really made me feel welcome. It was nice to “see” sights with someone else.Read more

    Nuremberg by day

    August 23, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Full day at our last stop along the Danube River. So much to see, to learn, to eat & drink. Ended our tour with pretzels and beer (or wine) before we head back to the ship and our farewell dinner.
    It has been a wonderful trip, great learning experience and new friends and coworkers.Read more

    Winter Music and Dinner

    December 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    I’ve come here for a winter dinner and music. It will all be German with few people who speak English. I had a similar adventure in Norway and it was interesting. Way out of my comfort zone, but this trip is about adventure!Read more

    Ab gen Süden die Erste...

    June 23, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Der Messebesuch ist beendet und wir sind weiter Richtung Süden. Durch Zufall kreuzen sich die Reiserouten von uns und Freunden die wir vor drei Jahren in Albanien kennen gelernt haben.

    Ein schöner Stellplatz wurde schnell gefunden und gleich kommt der Omnia wieder zum Einsatz...es gibt Hackfleisch-Pizza 😉Read more

    Show #5 Erlangen

    October 24, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Nach zwei entspannten Day Off's in Erlangen, an denen Marion und Ich uns sehen konnten, weil sie in Haßfurt eine Produktionsvorbereitung hatte ❤ ging es heute morgen in die kleine Heinrich-Lades-Halle.
    Das ganze hatte was von einer Stadthalle. Also wieder das System ändern und auf ein kleineres Setup umbauen.
    Die Besonderheit hier war ein Groundsupport (Traversenkonstruktion mit Trusstowern) in dem wir uns eingehängt haben. Für die Dachpunkte wären wir Lastmäßig an die Grenze des Möglichen gekommen.

    Trotzdem lief der Auf- und Abbau sehr entspannt ab und wir hatten Zeitmäßig keine Einbußen.

    Die Stimmung war ganz okay. In Bayern feiert man ein bisschen gediegener 😋

    Auf ins schöne Wien.

    Wetterfrosch im Urlaub

    July 12, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Der Wetterbericht für heute versprach vor allem Eines: Viel Regen. Richtiges Aprilwetter.
    Doch offenbar war genau unser Wetterfrosch wohl heute im Urlaub, denn außer ca. 30 Minuten Regen heute Nachmittag, konnten wir strahlende Sonne und maximal einige dicke graue Wolken entdecken.

    Gut für uns, denn wir hatten für heute einige Pläne. Morgens haben wir schön in der Sonne gefrühstückt und sind dann am See entlang zum Hafen in Absberg spaziert. Dort erwartete uns ein Trimaran (ein extra für diesen See entworfenes Schiff mit Platz für 700 Gäste und nur 1,40m Tiefgang) mit dem wir eine 1 1/2h Rundfahrt über den großen Brombachsee gemacht haben. Es gab viel zu sehen, also Natur, sonst tatsächlich eigentlich gar nichts. 😅 Die Fahrt war aber trotzdem ganz nett.
    Nach der obligatorischen Schwarzwälder-Kirsch-Torte gings zurück zu unserer Halbinsel.
    Die nächsten drei Stunden haben wir gemütlich in den Sesseln der Wakeboardanlage verbracht, die Sonne genossen, entspannt, den Profis zugeguckt und gefachsimpelt. ☀️

    Zum Abendessen wollten wir dann endlich unseren neuen Grill testen, aber juhu auf dem Stellplatz ist komplettes Grillverbot 😅🙈 Aaaalso Burger aus der Pfanne. Trotzdem lecker. Lars ist einfach ein guter Koch :-)

    Und daaaaaann gabs endlich Action. Lars hat einen Wakeboard Anfängerkurs gemacht! Ich wollte parallel auf die große Anlage, aber da wars einfach viel zu voll. Also habe ich Paparazzi gespielt. Und der Coach und ich waren uns einig, Lars hat Talent! 😍 Die Surfkarriere kann also kommen! 🎉

    Jetzt lassen wir den Abend ganz gemütlich ausklingen und hoffen dass auch morgen der gute Wetterfrosch den Weg noch nicht wieder nach Hause findet.

    Are we nearly there yet?!

    July 20, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Good morning from just north of Nuremberg!

    It's been an absolute joy so far, everyone has managed to get a good 8-hour's sleep without too much fuss, the cooked breakfast on the coach was very welcome and the fresh pot of coffee has really helped get the morning off to a positive start...

    ...and then reality kicks in as the coach goes over a bump on the motorway which jolts you awake and you realise that it's only 03.45, and only 26 minutes has elapsed since the last time you managed to twist your body into a vaguely comfortable position in your coach seat (utilising skills that a GB Olympic gymnast would be proud of) and drift off to sleep, and you start the process all over again, hoping that sleep will stay with you for more than half an hour stints!

    We stopped for a late night "toilet & teeth" break in Belgium at around midnight. The coach drivers ambitiously anticipated a quick pit stop of around 15 minutes; however getting 119 students through a small service station toilet wasn't going to happen quickly (it took us an hour!), but did give us a chance to demonstrate how much the British love a good queue, I just felt sorry for the poor German lady who rounded the corner at 00.45 to find about 40 students waiting patiently for the toilet!!

    It's a bit quieter on the coach at the moment; Rick Astley mercifully seems to have disappeared from the airwaves and we are hoping for a breakfast stop soon. The next anticipated issues from the staff will be the depleted battery life on tablets/phones/iPads (how will we cope?!?!) and the constant worry looming over us that someone on the coach will suggest putting on their 'High School Musical' DVD collection...

    After that it will only be a few hundred miles more before we arrive in sunny Olomouc, easy!
