Visiting Gdańsk

May is a month with many legal holidays.

Combining the first one, May 1st, with the last weekend in April, plus taking Monday off, I headed to Gdańsk in Poland. I was sold on Gdańsk because it’s home to the Fahrenheit Memorial. Naturally, it became my first stop, providing me a place in the […]

Seoul Sunday: Bears, Trees, & Dinner

View from my hotel room in Seoul — third floor of the Hotel Manu. I would stay at Hotel Manu again.

My trip from Berlin to Seoul was long – and while none of the travel, in and of itself, was stressful, by the time I got to Seoul Saturday evening, I was completely […]

The wheels on the bus go round and round…

M48 at Busseallee, the last stop. Or first.

I take the bus to and from work, the M48.

My commute costs me about 55€ a month – unlimited travel in the Berlin AB zones, whether on bus, tram, U-bahn, S-bahn, or regional trains. And ferries.

I think it is an excellent value: I don’t […]

Five nights of Family and Friends

Guess what I toured…

So far my trip has been great, with one exception. I made all my tight connections (1 hour in Munich (Schengen to International (to the US on a US Flagged carrier)) and Washington (I had a spare 10 minutes before my flight boarded after completing Immigration, Customs, and TSA)) and […]

Airports & Airlines XV (Plus 2012 in Review)

All true, except Florida…

My 2012 travel is over – I visited 15 different airports in 2012, flew ten different airlines, visited six countries, seven German Länder, and seven US States — although I did list eight on my whiteboard because I expected to stop by Florida during my New Year’s Eve trip — […]

Flying Pam Ann

my ticket!

Wednesday night I finally saw a comedian that I’ve wanted to see for years: Pam Ann.

Given how much I love travel, in particular, flying, let me just say that Pam Ann is a comedian right up my alley. She does comedy that is based on the airline industry, poking fun at […]

Two days in Augsburg.

The Rathaus – overlooking a bleak, construction filled, plaza.

The main drag. Emphasis on “drag”.

After accumulating way too many overtime hours at work, I cashed some of them in this week, taking Monday and Tuesday off, in order to go to a conference down in Augsburg.

This wasn’t my first visit to […]

Bleh… Travel Headaches… No, not the kind you’re thinking of.

Lorenzkirche, one of many pretty churches in Nürnberg.

Saturday I headed south from Berlin to Nürnberg, something close to 4 solid hours on the train. Luckily I managed to get two seats to myself.

Unluckily, as I was checking into my hotel, I realized that I had a massive, massive headache, and no Tylenol […]

WEBMU 2012 – Those Whiney Expatriate Bloggers are picking a Meet-Up Spot

It’s springtime in Germany and, therefore, time to talk about where the English speaking expatriate bloggers living in Germany are going to get together in the fall to complain about Germany…

Gosh, that sounds convoluted:

If you are an English speaking, expatriate blogger based in Germany and want to join the 2012 meet-up for people […]

18:00 CET – In Motion

For six nights in a row this week, I will not be sleeping in the same bed twice – right now I’m half way through this travel marathon and I am looking forward to being at rest, somewhere.

Monday at 10:00 Mountain Standard Time I was in Denver, specifically at the airport, […]
