Nothing really....

It's been a while since I wrote last time. Sorry!! But nothing really happened... Well last weekend Alex and Filip came to HH. It was nice! Well apart from weather on Saturday. It was pour-raining the whole day and around +13. Summer...
We went out on Friday and met with some friends in Schanze.
Then on Saturday we met with most of the international bunch and we had dinner at Bok (Asian food, yummi!).
During the day the guys did some shopping (can you believe - I almost got nothing!).
Then on Sunday Alex got very eager to iron his shirts, and my for that matter. The day before he brought the ironing board from the cellar (Thomas left it for him) and the picture was some model (?) in bikini.
The thing was that as soon as he started ironing, this bikini started to disappear due to the heat.
Great! ;-)
Both Filip and Alex (and Thomas as well) think that this is a perfect motivation for guys to iron. You bet! Even some of my shirts got ironed. My God! Guys are so simple... ;-)

Tomorrow I'm flying to Köln, Alex will pick me up and we will go to the Belgian side to Alex' aunt's place. On Saturday there is a wedding of his cousin - in Holland. In a castle! Cool!
I'll write more after the weekend.
Have a good one!

Short vacations

I went to visit Alex close to Stuttgart more than a week ago. I went on Friday night and stayed until Monday morning. I had big plans of travelling around Schwarzwald but we weren't so close to it, and all the highways around Stuttgart seemed to be under construction. So instead we visited Stuggart (picture below - you can see some International Art-Bear Exhibition), which is much smaller than Hamburg and not so exciting but still OK.

After visiting the city we drove a bit around and found a really nice spot with grape plantation.

The day after we visited a "kloster" (it is monastery in Engl, right?), which is under UNESCO protection, and later on we went to see a barock castle in Ludwigsburg.
Monastery was cool; the castle little bit too much (as baroc style usually is).

Then on Monday I went to Göteborg. It was a nice, relaxing week. Too bad "la familja" was working. But we spent time together in the evenings. I also met Leif and Jenny with little Oumar. On Tuesday we went to see Miss Li and Moneybrother concerts. M-brother didn't seem so happy and willing to perform, which is a pity. The weather was also a typical GBG-weather. Fredrik and Tinna joined us, and we had dinner in a Turkish restaurant. Nice!

Then on Friday we had "kräftskiva" at Leif's place. My God!!! Yummi!!!! We ate so much crayfish and shrimps!! Had wine and snaps. It was sooooo delicious! Tack Leif!

On Saturday the whole familja went to the coast. First we had lunch close to Kungsbacka (kill me - but I don't remember the name! :-/) It was so nice to be with all of them. And the smallest one - Theo loves olives! Check out the picture! (Aparently he also loves sardines or sardelles - fantastic, huh?).

We also went to swim in the sea. was Tania and Dan who jumped from the cliffs. The water was cold. I'm a "chicken".

Now I'm back to Hamburg. A new week has started. Have a good one!

New place

Wow! today I can say that the new apartment starts to remind a real place to live and function in. The move took few days; packing and preparing, then Alex, Handan and I moved most of the stuff. Then the whole multi-culti gang helped on the 22nd July.
Then there was a short break when we went to Magda's and Sebastian's wedding. It was beautiful and the party was great! Thanks guys! On top of that we had a wonderful weather so the whole party we were out on the terrace. When I get some pictures you can be sure they will appear here.

(as promised here are some pics):

From the Church:

And the couple at the wedding reception:

I also got some pictures from Megi, one from the wedding, one from karaoke night:

Last Friday I returned the keys to the old place, this weekend we went to IKEA and bought some new lamps and other stuff which was missing in the new flat. Otherwise the weekend was good. We went out with one Mexican colleague on Friday - back home at 4 AM. Then on Saturday we had some beers with two friends - Hans and Sandra (I took care of their rabbit and cat when they were away on vacations 2 weeks ago). Today Alex and I fixed some more stuff in the flat and then he left to Stuttgart.

Here are some pics from the new apartment:

Guestroom (so everybody who will visit can have her/his room!!)


Alex who was fixing the connection for washing machine

More pictures later on.
Tomorrow a new week is starting. On Friday I'll go to Stuttgart to see a little bit of Schwarzwald and then next Monday - to Göteborg for 1 week!! Yuppi!!!
