What happened so far:

After Bregenz, I went into Switzerland and camped at Rapperswil. Switzerland looks kind of like a good Settler 2 - empire: everything neat and clean, and perfectly arranged.

The next day, I went over some lower passes to arrive at Meiringen. I crossed the Grimsel pass the next day and camped at Salgesch; I left Switzerland the next day, arriving at Chamonix in the middle of the pouring rain.

The next days, I crossed Savoy stopping at Montmareil and Valence for the nights. Then, I had to make my way through the massif central (watch the tour de france to,orrow, it passes through the same region - I went from Valence to Aubernas as well). Then, I followed the river of Tarn for the most part, arriving from Genoulhac (where I was in a dire situation because I did not find the camping) to Meyrueis, continuing to Requista, where I am now. The road is till not very flat,because it leaves the riverside every now and then to lead to some villiage situated on a hill, but after Albi, all will be well.

Tune in to find out more about: my visit to Albi and Toulouse. How I crossed the Languedoc and what I found out there. And how the conspiracy theorists want to take over the world.

I am in Meyrueis, on the borders of the Massif central. I just blew a 1000 percent occasion of asking for an email adress and am therefore still awestruck.There would probably be no wars if all people were like me, but hu,ankind would most definitelw die out within a few generations nevertheless.

I am running out of sun lotion. Make your conclusions on the weather.

I am pretty much in the middle of my route through France. The landscape is very nice: like in Italy, but less tourists, less litter, and no sea. I am taking pictures every now and then. Wait for the upload...

Passy-St. Germain

A short hello from the Mont Blanc region. Its been raining quite a bit recently, but I dont care (anymore). I am heqded towards Grenoble.

I am in Bregenz. I dragged myself over the Arlberg pass yesterday and rolled out the Rhine valley to end up at the side of the Bodensee lake.

I am staying at my sisters place. It's very nice here, I am shamelessly exploiting the hospitality of my cousin and his girlfriend. I had the chance to meet my niece Greta for the second time ever, since I was invited to lunch and dinner at their place... I somehow have to find out the recipe for the quiche-lorraine like pie that I got there. It was delicious.

Today will be a quiet, relaxed stage. I have a general direction to keep, but nothing more. I don't eypect slopes, nor wind,... maybe a little traffic, but thats okay. Just rolling towards the mountains again.

The Reawakening

Hey there, reader.

You may have thought that this blog was an exhibit of the 98 % of the blogs that are no longer updated, and rightly so... but surprise, it was sleeping all along.

My next trip will start this weekend. I'll be headiing off from my hometown this time, and it will be a kind of colf start. I did not have much time to get exercise, so I'll SUCK. That's the reason why I will not reveal my planned rout to the full extend - in order to prevent you from assessing my failure to the full extend.

Seriously: this is not going to be another cornerstone of my pride, nor another chapter in a book, let alone a demonstration of my abilities. My trip is just some time off, on my own, without having to care much about anything but the road ahead, and basic things alike. Only so much: I'll go west. As you already know, this will serve as a log book in a very old fashioned way.

There's more to come, but my reports from on the road will be brief, of course.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Thanks to those who wish me well.

It is true what they say about the waterfalls of Iguazu. They is everyone, in that case. The pictures I have made don't distinguish themselves from the mainstream holiday pictures, but what can I do... go there yourself if you want to see more.

The level of violence in the comments is most entertaining, although nothing else had to be expected on Christmas.

A short note: I don`t consider my return as sign of weakness, or "giving up". I did not come to South America on a mission, and I achieved and experienced more than I had expected. But I am curious, and I have ideas what to do next. You will see.

I'm just coming back from my first skydive. It's hard to say much about it. I have got a DVD of the jump, but I do not know if it is of common interest.

Tomorrow, or the day after, I will be off to Iguacu. I will let you know what it is like there.
