Back from Europe

Yeah, I am back. Back in my own home, enjoying the summer heat & humidity in Queensland. Thanks to the cool 40 degrees Celcius difference between me departing Germany and arriving in Australia, I have now a full blown cold and am grumpy. Nose is running, head is aching and throat is sore. But nevertheless, I had a marvelous time in Europe, especially catching up with my family.

My Sony PRS600 travelled with me, and wow, was it a good choice to get a reader beforehand. All the books I had with me and didn't read. Maybe loading it up with that many was a bit ambitious but I did manage to read 8 books and start another 4 (I love jumping between books).

The reader served me best while standing in the cold in line to get into the various museum - and it kept on working!!!

In Berlin, I assisted an interested buyer with some information about the reader and file formats (all the information I didn't know before I got mine). Even the salesperson was interested. And I referred them to this forum. Who knows, maybe they already popped in.

The only negative point travelling with my Sony was that I couldn't charge it via powerpoint / USB. Sure, that might be something other people know, I didn't. Pain in the neck to have either a computer handy or carry yet another cable. But we got around it after buying a variety of cables (blaming the powerpoints or the cables for not charging the thing).

Europe was cold but I thorougly enjoyed the travelling, meeting people and the food. Oh the food. How do I miss the heavy European winterfoods that just don't work here in Australia due to the heat / warmth of the outside temperature. And Lebkuchen (gingerbread) and Gluehwein (mulled wine) just taste soooo much better in the cold.

But I'm back and slowly getting back into the routine.

Welcome back, Katti's Cat!

It sounds like you had a great time (well, not the part about being cold and getting a cold ).

Thanks Dreams, I am glad to be back and am looking forward to get back into MR again.

Had a great (mostly) trip. And the cold got me back home, so I don't count it

Welcome back. My wife and I just git back from two weeks in South America (Buenos Aires & Rio) where it was in the 80s and 90s (Fahrenheit). Here it's freezing! Should have stayed.

welcome home.

I am also very promiscuous when it comes to my reading. I jump between books and find myself reading 2 or 3 at any given time. I can't really fathom myself starting and sticking with only one book at a time.

Oh very nice - did you enjoy South America? It is still on my travel list but somehow I'm always short of cash and even shorter of time.

In case you remember

I mentioned before leaving for Europe, that we (daughter & myself) were invited to a Winterball and also, that my dance partner (blind date) was a no-show. In that threat I got asked for a picture - be warned: here it is.

We had all a phantastic time and danced till the feet smoked.

The no-show must have gotten so many SMS from people who were disgusted by his behaviour, that I am sure he has now a new phone number (I didn't hold back on telling that I got stood up nor in handing out his mobile phone number in case I got asked )

Nice gowns, Katti's Cat!
Isn't it amazing how a family resemblance shows so strongly in photos. Your facial features are amazingly alike.

Neuschwanstein does ring a bell (a castle, right?), but Hofbräuhaus????? If I were to translate it, Royal Brewery House?
