In the 3rd week of november I went on a citytrip, by train I visited Berlin, Prague, Munich and Brussels. One day for travelling, one day for visiting a city. The weather was not that good, but all in all I enjoyed my trip. For every city I installed a city guide app from Tripadvisor on my phone, and as long as I had gps-fix I could find my way.

See some pictures below. The descriptions are some observations in general and say nothing about the photo.
More pictures can be found on my homepage

Hmm on the map the hotel looked much closer to the Hbf

Movie 'Interstellar', smell of popcorn and beer

I can't feel my feet anymore, my legs are stiff, too much walking

+++ Erzatszug ohne beschilderte platzreservierungen +++

14 o'clock and it is still raining

My pigeon homing skills proove to be inadequate, again, as I struggle to find the way to the hotel.

Room on 6th floor, elevator goes to 5th

Mehr Apotheker dan Bierhallen

Lots of hobo's

In the TGV a group of women finally were settled when they noticed they were in the wrong zug

Had to walk for more than an hour until I found an ATM that wanted to give cash.

Finding you way in the metro system in Brussels is a real challenge

Last June I went to Cyprus for a dving holiday. Unfortunately the wind was too strong and I could dive for only one day. Bad luck, yes, but there is a lot to see and a lot to do on Cyprus.

Last year and in the beginning of this year I renovated my kitchen. This was really necessary as I had not done anything in it since I bought my appartment in 1997 :D . It did not occur to me that it was that bad. When I come home and prepare my dinner I only look to the stove and every thing else seems transparant or even invisible. So when I decided to renovate my kitchen and had a look I realized it was really necessary. So what did I do ?
- I plastered the outside wall. This did take some time as I had to remove the old plaster and fill up some holes. I used polyurethane (pur) to fill up some holes behind the wooden frame. This was tricky as when you use to much it will ruin the wooden frame when it expands.
- The back wall of the kitchen was tiled, but in the left corner above the stove it was plastered. And that was really difficult to clean. So I tiled this also with some tiles that were left from '97. It was not that diffucult and I am very pleased with the result.
- I painted the window frame and the door
- I painted the walls and the ceiling
- And replaced the linoleum

I am very pleased with the result and this will be fine for another 15 years !

Last year I renovated my bedroom. I did not have any energy to write about this sooner as it has been very busy at work. But after the window frames were replaced (in 2012...) this was the time to do it.
As I had some leakages the walls were very bad. I had to remove the old plaster. As a consequense the walls needed to be replasterd :roll: I decided to do it myself. Some reasons for this are that I don't have to take a day off for 'a guy' phoning me on the last moment that he is not able to come. Maybe I should be more thrustwordy...
Plastering is a kind of art and has a steep learning curve. As a result the first part I did did not look that good. So I studied the art of plastering from a commercial brochure of the local mall. This did the trick and the second part of wall did look much better. As I am a lazy sod and like to leave things as they are I decided that the first part looked fine enough and did not need any redoing.
The second job was to repaint the bedroom. I decided that I wanted to have a 'jungle look'. I painted one wall 'palmgreen', which is really 'green'. As I used granol this was no easy feat as the other walls where white.
Also I applied a bamboo theme glassfoil to the windows. The first window failed miserable, I had the wrong size and there were lots of airholes left which I could not remove. Using a needle to pop them is an idea but it still will look bad. The trick is to use lots of water. Make the window wet and than apply the foil. Use a stick to remove the water behind it, it sounds contradictory but it really does the trick.
I am very happy with the result. I moved the bed and the closet to their opposite sides and the bedroom looks much better now.
Though it took more effort than I expected I am very pleased with the result.

I just checked, my last real post was from April. All posts thereafter, Monthly Quote, Monthly Babe, were generated automatically.
Last year at work was very hectic and will be for some time. I had to work some weekends and was online and on the phone with people from India, Singapore, Germany, the US, the UK. It's a global world indeed !
I also discovered minecraft, which also costed some considerable time. But that was just fun. So my next posts will be to remove some backlog, and from there we'll see !
