Stopover in Malaysia

Stopover in Malaysia

After an almost 12 hour flight, I’ve safely arrived in the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

Even though the weather in Frankfurt was rainy, we had a great view from the Czech border almost to the end.

It was impressive flying over Ukraine for two reasons. You can feel how huge and scarcely populated this country is. The second reason is that from 10,000 meters, cities like Donezk look like many other cities but knowing that there are violent fights going on, makes it special. Since I was watching a Hollywood movie while flying over Ukraine, I was reflecting on our daily problems and theirs. It’s impressive how some people have to fight because they long for freedom and others because they’re afraid of freedom.

From Pasing to Australia

Abfahrt in Pasing

Departure in Pasing

I started my journey to Australia with a great sunrise over Pasing. When my train was arriving at 5:35 in the morning, I had this impressive view. Even though my trip takes me to the South-East, I stated in northwestern direction towards Frankfurt.

Children’s logic

Autor: . Abgelegt unter Allgemein,English,Haha,Wow

A few days ago, I was on my way through Augsburg and wanted to get on the tramway with my crutches. The three seats just across from the door were taken by three boys aged between 10 and 12.

I asked them, if one could get up and give me his seat. Two didn’t even hear me at all, the other one smiled at me but didn’t get up.
Instead, he scootched over and asked with a bright smile if that space would do it. As I’m not the most voluminous person, I could easily fit in there.
When I sat down, one of the other boys, next to whom I was now sitting as well, looked over, smiled at me and said: „Hallo!“.

It’s so funny how easy a solution kids can come up with. Why does anyone of us have to stand, if we can all sit, if we just move a little closer together. Even some other people on the tram smiled about this reaction of the boys.

Why can’t we stay kids forever?
