Europe » Germany » North Rhine-Westphalia » Bonn September 20th 2006

I have been having a great time in Bonn. Staying with my friend Katja (whom I met as an exchange student at UBC) and her boyfriend, Patrick. Even though Katja has had to work every day, her and Patrick are phenomenal hosts, doing everything they can to ensure I have as an authentic German experience as possible. On Monday, the weather wasnt fantastic, but Patrick and I went for a nice long run along the Rhine River. Katja met up with us after work and we went to visit one of the museums featuring a Guggenheim exhibit. We went out for authentic German food, I had speitzel and shnitzel (basically a doughy pasta and breaded pork cutlets). It was heavy, but good. Tuesday, Patrick and I took a day trip to Cologne. We visited the famous ... read more

playing chess is war. but in these days of emancipation the field of battle isn´t exclusively a place of men. you are confronted with female counterparts which are fighting hard with ther feminine weapons. the mental confusion may nearly put you to death... in the end everything was fine and the black men won!... read more

well hello from the middle of nowhere Germany. after three days in amsterdam we arrived here this afternoon. Amsterdam's canals, and beautiful boats were only outdone by the traffic mayham that was crossing the street. It was people lane, bike lane, car lane, tram lane, car lane bike lane and people lane. with islands between each. basically it seems that bikes have the rightof way....or maybe its the trams. we're still not sure. we saw the Van Gogh museum which was GREAT and also enjoyed an excellent canal tour. Our hostel was great. clean, safe, a great breakfast and beside a big park of Bohemians. Hilary has met a beautiful tall dutch boy and decided to stay with him in the netherlands. had i not pushed her infront of his bike, i would still have a ... read more

We find ourselves now in this little sleepy town of Bad Godesberg, situated just south of Bonn, in time for the start of the World Cup. Our grand farewell to England with our British hosts included both a beer festival and a fair in Chalfont. Funny coincidence at the beer fest -- the Brits found us a souvenir plate from none other than Victoria, British Columbia, Canada! The only thing we could think of doing with it was to get them all to autograph it and now we will bring it home and put it on display as a memento of our trip. It was sad to say goodbye, but as we have managed to do all year it was time to look forward to our next destination, back to the European continent. We flew to ... read more

Europe » Germany » North Rhine-Westphalia » Bonn June 2nd 2006

A chapter is closing! From the next 2 weeks I will more or less be doing the 'backpacker' thing and without a forsure bed to sleep in every night Oy. Not exactly looking forward to it. I changed my plans again about going to München. It's sort of a lame story so I don't want to talk about it. Yes, as if talking about getting locked in my room isn't lame... Where am I sleeping tonight? Most likely in the Köln airport. Where will I be sleeping tomorrow night? Most likely in Luxemburg. How am I getting to Lux? Haven't figured that part out yet. But keine Panik. I've got this crazy idea that Lux is a really cool country, if only people knew! Ok, so the main reason I'm going there is because it borders ... read more

Saturdaz night I was all settled into bed and readz to sleep around 11p. But then I thought, I should reallz finish up the postcards and send them out; I onlz have one more week left here. So I got out of bed, went over to mz closet, unlocked it, and looked (verz quicklz) for those postcards. I didn't see them (didn't have mz glasses) so I shut the closet door behind me. All would be well at this point had I not left mz kezs INSIDE of the closet, and it self locked as I closed it. There was a tinz moment of disbelief, like, did I reallz leave mz kezs in there, zeah, I think I did, cuy i needed the kezs to unlock the door, and now that the door's closed, I'm not ... read more

I wanted to do something fun today so this morning I headed into Bonn. My original plan was to go to the Bonn Botanical Garden, check out the veggie/fruit markt, and maybe see about ...um... buying another jacket. Something not as cheap as 7.9 Euros, but something perhaps a bit more substantial and that I can alternate with the one that I have worn 7 days in a row now. I arrived in Bonn and found out from the Tourist Information lady -- who was hinting that I really take the Japanse or the Korean pamphletes because they would be easier for me than English... -- that the Garden was closed on Saturdays. And I had found out from my friend/host Andreas that the Garden is free on all days except Sunday (tomorrow), so looks like ... read more
