Hello to you my fine people...

   Semester is done, all final exams taken, now it's the ole waiting game for the final grades.  This semester took sooo much time and energy out of me.  New University and new location... looooooooong commute there and back.  Often rather tiresome but we survived.  I say we, as Julia is already enrolled in college as well under the MOWR program (Move on when ready) My apologies for this long absence here and on facebook... but as you can see, it's never forever :-)  I am back, only to tell you that I will be gone once again.  But not to worry, 'cause I am taking you all with me (as always).  Where are we going?  

  Well, back to Southeast Asia !!!!  Yipeeee... we are traveling again.. yes, soooo soon.  A four-week trip filled with travel and exploration.  I am excited, are you?  I will not say to which countries and locations we will go... you just have to stay connected.   

  When are we all leaving?  Be ready December 13th.  Yes, I know it is one day after my birthday... This time I am a bit more excited about my birthday as it will read 12.12.12 and you can bet your sweet little booty that I will have a picture taken at 12:12:12.  Cheesy and lame, perhaps, but cool none the less ;-)    So have your passports ready and be ready for a 22 hour flight.    Are you with me????   Good, I thought so :-)   

 One more thing... I will switch my travel blogging soon to my very own website (I am sooooooooo excited about this website).  Nothing is there yet, but be sure to remember the address:


  It's still in progress, but it shall be all prettied up and stuff in a couple of days ;-) Keep checking it! It has its very own e-mail address attached as well, but I will share that one with you in due time.  

So what say you... are you with me???

Tons of kisses from me to you !!!!

Singapore and Malaysia

Hello to you fine people....   took me a while to get back here to the blogging world, but can you blame me???  My days here in Singapore are coming to an end as I fly back to Germany tomorrow evening.  It will be a sad sad goodbye to an awesome place and an awesome person.  Many thanks to you, Andre,  for making this an UNFORGETTABLE experience !!!!   Singapore is truly a remarkable place.  Although I didn't see much history here as everything is super modern, you can somehow feel its history anyway.  But then again, as Andre remarked, I haven't seen all there is to Singapore during my week stay. Thus, there is one conclusion to be drawn: I have to return!!!  To walk the streets in its nightly glory is mesmerizing.  Day and night in Singapore is so very different just from the images its offering, but add the diversity of the people and one can not help but love this Island.  Truly amazing.


Unfortunately, we didn't make it on time to get tickets to go onto the "bridge"

Only in Malaysia???
and more Malaysia:

beyond spicyyyyyyyyyyyyy
note to self:  don't eat what's in a silver cup !!!!!!  I am sure I have lost some of my taste buds for good !!

Goal: going all the way to the roof top platform

Awesome view to the harbor and botanical garden

 Darn mosquitos....grrrrrrrrrr

On our way to the Island "Sentosa"

What goes up must come down... and that's the way down


breakfast by the water ;-)

Little India

First time Indian food for me... my mouth was on fire !!!!
This shall be all for now.. I will share more later ;-)    Until then... hugs, kisses and all that fun stuff from me to you fine people

Berlin Dome .. 21 June 2012

This picture of the Berlin Dome was actually taken 19 June 2012 when we had fantastic weather ;-)
Good evening to you fine people,

today was a cold, wet day, but we ventured out anyway ;-)   Thus we took you fine people  inside the Berlin Dome. Once again, for more info, google it :-)  It is massive on the outside, but even more massive on the inside.  This time, you will be spoiled with a video again, just 'cause i love you all that much ;-)   perhaps even two videos.  It was awesome.  The video inside the "Gruft" (crypt) is a bit dark, but they are funny down there about the use of light ;-)

Enjoy ; -)   I shall see you all for our next outing ;-)   Hugs, Kisses and all that fun stuff to you fine people ;-)

And now off to the crypt ;-)
(I wanted to show you all a video now, but I can't get it to work right, thus, you shall just look at still-pictures)
Here are the leaders, sons, daughters and wives of the Hohenzollerns

 (Queen) Sophie-Charlotte, wife of Frederick I of Prussia (you all remember our trip to Schloss Charlottenburg, yes?  Named after her ;-) )

King of Prussia, Frederick I

 And now off to the Berlin Dome Museum on our way to the "Kuppel"

and now... lots and lots of tiny stairs to the top of the church for a stunning view of Berlin
(here, too, I wanted to include a video, but grrrrrrrrrr...)

And we are on our way down and out ;-)

And now off to Humboldt University (and that was our entire day)

This Sunday.. i will take you all with us to a tour of the Reichstag (Bundestag)...  dress warm 'cause it is cold here !!!! ;-)  Hugs, kisses and all that fun stuff from me to you fine people
