I think this place needs a little update. So, this is what I've been up to while I wasn't updating:

This is on Lake Constance. I've been working in the area for a while and the free time was pretty awesome too. There's all kinds of watersports of course and you can easily visit 3 different countries from there (I think that's Switzerland there in the background of the picture ... or Austria?) and all kinds of interesting stuff to see and explore. One of the highlights for me was an airship museum with real airship interior and everything.

Quite the reality check if your mind has been under the influence of certain steampunk stories that make airship travel sound so glamorous. The cabins are all on the inside, no windows, and they are so very tiny, like the ship cabins that are on the smaller side. The type of cabin that requires you to wait in your bed while the person you live with gets dressed, because there is no way two people could do that at the same time and not end up looking very funny.  And then you have a dining room on one side and a common room on the other side and that's it. And no bathrooms, just toiletts and the little basins in the cabins. There just isn't enough space for all the stuff that tends to happen on airships in the stories. I'd totally chose an airship over a plane though, of course I would.

But, summer is over and we're well into autumn now, with foggy mornings and everything. Time to think about what to do for Halloween (no Zombies, no Vampires ... )
