Last breath of Germany

There and back to go there

overcast 18 °C

Our weird initiary lead us from Lyon back to homely Frankfurt where we finally zipped off to Lisbon. As time was scarce we took the night bus Sunday night and arrived early Monday (Sep. 20) in Frankfurt. Thanks to my good mate Tom, we had a place to rest and got a lovely breakfast.


In Frankfurt we were able to make our last preparations before head off.

The plane made us wait another 2 hours and the airport - very enjoyable with one of the most expensive beers i ever drank (More expansive than L.A. airport i.e.)

This so far to our last breath of Germany - luckily, because I didn't bring any warm clothes.

setting it up

sunny 25 °C

So, I'm glad you can see my entries at Travellerspoint. I had some problems to get my first message on line, but here we go! The address to remeber is:


- that's us in Brazil! To give you a rough idea on where we're going, please see the map here.


We're first flying into Salvador and travel along the coastline to Fortaleza. Then we take the plane again to get to Boa Vista/Roraima in the far north of Brazil. That's where our projects will take place. Having finished these our trip will lead us back to Fortaleza on land and water.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Getting started

as the world of internet publishing hit me the last 2 year's within my job for Hamburg Uni - this is going to be our presentation of 4 months Brazil.

sunny 25 °C

We write Sunday, September 10, 2006. I left Hamburg/Germany already 2 weeks ago for visiting my folks back home before we go on our grand journey. That means I'm in Schlüchtern/Hessen/Germany since August 26, worked here for 2 weeks at my Dad's company and caught up with friends and family around.


As Aziza stayed in Hamburg for some more time finishing her projects at work, I'm glad to see her on my first trip to Lyon/France on Wednesday (2006-09-13) night. I'm going to be there for 4 days until we head for Frankfurt/Germany to board the first aircraft along our route. This will bring us to our first Stopover-destination Lisbon/Portugal, where we hopefully catch up with friends from Portugal and Germany...

So let's see how steady we'll be with that thing here - you might know how hard it is at stages... there's so much other things to do out there.

Bis bald!
