Half a year ago I this guy Nacho from Spain at the Nürburgring here in Germany. He said: Ey, you come over to sunny Valencia and visit me.
I SAID: NACHO! Not this guy, he knocks on doors at 4 a.m.
Well, after some months of cold and rainy weather here in the center of Germany, I decided to travel to Valencia. Unfortunatly all flights were booked out, so I decided to take the ship. Bad idea.
I travelled to Hamburg
to departure from there.
Soon after we left Hamburg habour a storm came up.
Not much to see.
Ship sinking : washed ashore,10 items
First watch, my much beloved and treasured 360
Second, I need a watch for daily use in sand and water. The G-Shock
Thank god my iphone survived, but all I found were two songs and a movie on it.
I love music. I have tons of CDs of all kind. From Classical to Heavy Metal. I thought it would have been a tough choice, but to my surprise it wasn´t.
First song, from the only singer I really, really admire. Not only for his music but also for the man he was. Unfortunatly I discoverd him in my mid 30s, after he died. So I wasn´t able to see him live.
The man in black. Johnny Cash.
This is a german DID, right. So second song from a german band, almost 20 years old now, but still one of my favorites. For your listening pleasure with german subtitles
Die Ärzte - Zu Spät
I also love movies, and I love the Cohen Brothers. I own almost all of their movies. But for me one is outstanding and it´s NOT The Big Lebowski.
I chose O Brother Where Art thou
An unbelievebalegreat story with George Clooney at his best
One book. My choice Robert Harris - Pompeji. Awesome book, great story about the last day of Pompeji with a lot of historic background. The story begins two days before the first eruption. The Aqua Augusta no longer supplies water to the gulf of Naples and Marius Attilius Primus tries to repair the aqueduct and starts to relize whats going on Not only Harris describes the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, he also gives a good description of the town and all its luxury. It´s a great mixture between history and fiction.
Thats a no brainer. The birth of my first daughter Emily in 2007. This is and always will be the happiest day in my life. I remember every single moment of the birth and how tiny and small she was. It was like six in the morning when I called my parents to tell them, they are grandparents again. I wasn´t able to speak a single word.
I´m a fool for italian food. Some many great meals, pizza, all kinds of pasta, bistecca fiorentina, seafood and so on. But I always start with the same course:
Insalata caprese. So simple, so good! Only mozzarella, fresh tomatos, prociutto di parma and basil. This one here we had while in Firenze for pday 8.
I love beer. Typical for a german right? But I choose a beer from Austria (well, actually brewed in Germany for some reason, but anyway).
This one here is from the Austrian town of *******, called ******* Hell (a pun, hell means in german light beer)
Another no brainer, a photo of my two daughters Emily and Anabelle, taken three monts ago in kindergarden. Both are so adorable and gorgeous. Nothing better in life, you bet.
Also very simple. The love of my live, my wife Heike. She is the best example why we call our wifes better halves because she really is. Everyone who knows her, will agree with me. She is everything I am not: Warm, friendly, a real positive person and pretty too
Rules for responders : just post your name underneath . Prepare your script do not post it, I will pick someone to post next monday tomorrow evening (european time)
