On the road again

Silence when I could have had pages to fill...No access to an internet connection on a regular basis means that I have to delay the possibility of posting often and putting up pictures, a real struggle I will be glad to end next year. Not complaining in any ways about internet cafe's, simply saying easy access is nicer. The week spend with Allyson was great, we had a good time in Bremen where we ate typical german food in a smoky bar, took lots of pictures of the historical/medieval town and then found out there was a live concert...

Please, spread the word

From the Shark Trust: "IMMEDIATE RELEASE6th September 2005 Paradise Destroyed: developer bulldozes unique tropical habitats while the Bahamian Government turns a blind eye.

Climbin' WAll

After many years of giving up this wonder sport, guess what??? We have discovered a wall in one of the local sport store. Nobody uses it and we have been allowed to go there on a regular basis and use it...It is a bit of an experience as we are climbing while customers stroll around the alleys looking at the gear...as you can see from the above photo...but I simply love it!!! Window shopping and climbing at the same time, what else can you ask for????

Riot On

out of all the documentaries we saw.My favourite one was: RIOT ON... from Kin Finn. " How does the global economy work? And why does it sometimes not work at all?

Nordic Film Festival

Lubeck film festival was amazing. I can only say that this little town is full of history merging beautifully carved old churches spires glittering on the light blue sky of my dreams and gorgeous cobbled pedestrian streets, mouth watering marzipan stores, small lakes with goldening willows gracefully bending towards their own reflections and beauty, Hundreds of colourful bycicles and the warmth of this hand in mine…Add the potential to talk to real business people…Vision real life premiere Nordic docs… Hang out at a dress up...
