In Germany with Xeralife


Just got back from a trip to Germany with Xeralife (www.xeralife.com). The weather was absolutely phantastic. Cold, yes maybe a bit too cold, but bright sun and cleasr skies. Got some running done in the forest.

Stayed in Dormagen, which in my books, now ranks as the most boring town I have ever seen. The most happening Pub had some 3 people in it besides us. On a Friday evening. What happened to Germany?

It was also great to see Inke, who returned from Chile to live in Frankfurt (Why?).

Personally, I did not like Frankfurt. Hey, I have problems buying tickets for the trains and I should know as I grew up with that stuff. Too complicated and people in Germany too unfriendly. Or just suspicious?

Xeralife just sent a note, we are going back for Compamed 2012, so I'll be back in November 2012.

Business Trip to Germany

In Germany for the third time this year. Xeralife is attendind the Compamed and we have come over to help the German distributor with the exhibition.
Arrived yesterday after an uneventful flight and trip. The weather is nice. Cold but very sunny, just perfect November weather. Forecast says it is to stay that way.

Got over teh time difference pretty good too. Only woke up at 6:30 this morning after a night out with some frineds. Ended up in Hameln, at least there are some vibrant places left. Later going to work a bit and going for a run. Gotta keep fit, no?

Ill constructed


Now, if heights and no safety net is not enough, then you need to go to Langkawi and take a ride up the mountain with the cable car. At the top you will find this bridge. Interesting concept as it is suspended and therefore swings. One could have just erected the supporting pillar directly attached to the bridge, but then it wouldn't swing. Boring innit?
