Ulli, Karoline & Bad Elster

Gutten taag!
in what was sunny Bad Elster, east Germany, with a bit of a hangover and quite a journey ahead. Ulli and Karoline’s wedding was great – very nicely organised and a bunch of cool and funny people there.
Today we are heading to Frankfurt, hopefully metting Liam (without any problems) at the airport, then trying to get a train to Prague, Czech republic.

We went to some “Baths” yesterday, splashed around in 37 degree C water, and i have to say I have felt really good since! i recommend it!

We also burned around in Ralph’s (Dad’s friend from Munuch/Heidalberg) SAAB convertible. What a freakin’ cool set of wheels!

Will get some pics up soon once i find a wireless spot!

#Mac Note
I have turned on Open Firmware on my mac, setenv to Full Security, as part of my “Mac Security” for the trip! that seems pretty cool.
I ran Techtool Pro 4 and did a defrag and directory optimise on my powerbook too – what else would you do whilst in Bad Elster!

Hello hello!

I am sitting at my Dad’s apartment in Hong Kong, having just eaten some noodles, and am slowly getting my shit together for next week. “Why, what’s happening next week?” you ask.
Well my Dad, Cheryl (Dad’s girlfriend), Lisa (my girlfriend) and I are going to a wedding in Bad Elster, Germany!!!!
From there we’re are going to Praha, and then Lisa and I are going to meet up with mr Liam Neville, and cruise down Eastern Europe:

Europe Trip Proposed Itinerary

We are taking a video camera, and a few still cameras, so we will have heaps to show hopefully! I’m taking my powerbook too, so hopefully we can cut little clips as we go! It will probably get ripped off in a hostel I bet!

Lisa deserves all the credit for organising it! She has been really busy browsing the travel forums and getting all the info she can.
