on the move again

I'ts Sunday afternoon and I am in the airport again. Returned on Wednesday night from over a week in northern New South Wales, the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise and Brisbane and going up to Townsville for three days. In the meantime my laptop stopped to be eager to connect to the internet and I had to have Windows reinstalled. I can't believe how addicted one can be to the internet :) Will write more soon and publish some pictures as well. Hope it's sunny in Townsville! Hugs to ya friends!

fresh news: a gym in malmö offered a special deal for couples, without defining the term "couple". when someone asked about gay couples and the gym representative wouldn't accept that as a "couple", they reported the case to homoombudsmannen, call it a ombud for the rights of the homosexual. sweden, a country where everything's ought to be right and follow the rule, whatever the rule might be. so very unspanish. so very helylle. so very lagom....

btw. i am in this very instant listening to sahara hotnights and consuming mandel spekulatius from aldi - german gingerbreads - they didn't have any glühwein, but it feels a bit Christmassy anyway, reminding me of the of December in Innsbruck....

bush mtb

last weekend I suprisingly entered the australian crazy mountainbiking association and joined our financial controller and his cool mates on a 41km tour in the blue mountains. he asked me to join them at 5pm friday afternoon, picked the redeyed me at 6am on saturday morning and we all went to katoomba, where a tour guide was waiting with the bigger version of a surfer's bus. the crazy drive ought to be able to cause a heart attack, but we arrived somewhere at 1500meters and did a crazy downhill for some k's, followed by very nice and steep uphills, stairs, gates, rocks, rivers and, a thrilling suspension bridge....

the bus of joy

rollin' rollin' rollin'....

hit the road jack!
