…living in and dreaming of…

firsts

July 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments

there were already a lot of first times so far…

first doubt as i closed the door behind me with the keys inside

first sweat as i carried my touring cycle down the stairs

first irritating looks which i could’t always answer with a smile

first safety inspections by the police

first part of the journey by train and the

first rain i was happy to avoid

first night outdoors

first time waking up before 5am in the morning since at least a year and the

first morning without coffee since almost as long ago

first time being lost after following signs

first time trying to get by without signs and still end up nowhere

first bakery i passed without buying anything

first ride through rain

first exchange of greetings with other touring cyclists

first time since berlin thinking that this is a good idea

first time crossing a river by boat

first time cursing because of headwinds

first time realizing that unlinke in berlin there ain’t always a store open to replenish my supplies and

first time realizing there is more i miss since leaving berlin.

hope all of you are doing great.  i’ll soon get my camera and from then on there will be even more photos than so far. next week  i’ll be leaving for freiburg . but i’ll post some news before that. cheerio!

    wo bist du ??
    sollte nicht jeder eintrag damit anfangen?
    sei froh, dass du weg bist – hier ist gerade ein höllisches gewitter
