Hallo Berlin!

… die CD ist endlich hier und käuflich zu erwerben hier:


taschen & accessoires

Die CD gibt es für 8 EUR. Da Ulrike, die reizende Inhaberin, eine extra Kasse für das Album hat, wäre es schön wenn Ihr passend zahlen könnt. Es lohnt sich auch definitiv etwas Zeit mitzubringen um sich die aktuelle Kollektion an Taschen und Modeaccessoires anzusehen.

Dann macht mal Lärm und erzählt es Freunden und Bekannten weiter.

Liebe Grüße vom Bodensee,

other means of transportation


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!

the world à la carte

Hey and thanks to all the folks who came to say goodbye. We had a farewell party yesterday and i think we held up quite well against the rain. Take four strong arms who hold a blanket over the heads and tell me it ain’t a house. Some photos will follow.

I was given a superb go away present. A little book with the favourite places from friends with a photo and some words on the side. So if i’ll ever run out of places i want to visit i just pull over and take a look into this wonderful menu. Thank you!

The album is finished – wahoo!!! – and i’ll upload it in a couple of days.  It’ll be on sale in 3 or 4 weeks.

Now, got to get on with preparations for the departure.  Tuesday it is.

Tomorrow, birthday party from a friend and last chance to have a beer together. 22h @ roof terrace, skalitzer 36.

Cheers , mat
