snow-fun-time in 2020 @ Karpacz, Poland

Wintertime in Karpacz, Poland.

How it came about
I was thinking about how these last winters seem to have less snow than the ones before. I decided that something had to be done about it. I managed to convince my partner in crime, the dog "Lona vom Jünglingshof", to tell her "master" to travel to an interesting country, taking everyone along and it preferably being one where I haven't been as yet. Everyone being my new boss, Felix, obviously his dog pal Lona and the expedition crew.

The issues which had to be taken care of
As none of us are allowed to drive cars; by any law on earth that is; and we have to be driven around, most of the time.

The Expedition Crew
We assembled the expedition crew, us being the famous "Simba and Felix" Expedition Team, with the specialists, Ludwig, the fearless dog and Felix, the famous Adventure Rabbit.
We managed to have Lona convince her peers, aka. "Oma and Opa", to take everyone along on the  winter trip to Poland, them obviously being under the impressions of having arranged everything. For us it was a trusted and tried way of getting everything funded and the whole itinerary being taken care of, much to our comfort.

Here are some pictures.

Lisbon May 2019

The last years have been a bit slow. I admit I was not productive at all
and was taking my new job very seriously, taking care of baby Felix.

Now that he is a boy of 5, I can start to get back to my job.

At the good old MUC Airport, waitin' at Gate K3

Since the flight to Lisbon takes roughly 3 hours and I got here quite late, it's 10 PM local
time now. I must say I am quite sleepy. This is my view out of the room window onto the
square "Marquês de Pombal" Luckily it got more quite at around midnight and there are
nearly no cars. Ambulances are quite busy here too, rushing around the big roundabout.

Sunrise at 6 AM

At around 7 AM in the middle of May.

The temperatures where warm, around 22 °C.

We decided to walk the 5 KM to the congress center in the morning, as we had time to
spare. There where a lot of these purple trees at about every square. The change in height
is more than 50 meters on our way down to the sea.

Lisbon does look a bit like San Francisco. Hilly, electric tram, red bridge, warm
climate, an earthquake damaged about 80% of the city quite some time ago
and it even sits on a fault line.

I even got a t-shirt of Lisbon.

No more, being number 1

I had heard that this marriage thing might lead to strange situations, but this?
All my friends at parapluesch and at home are very excited, dreaming up stories of how my new job might turn out to be. That makes me think ...

No more being the "raving reporter" and handling dangerous situations? I hope those days are not gone forever, though, thinking about it, having a real buddy, to explain the world to. That sure sounds tough but very exciting and fun too.
Well, now you all know, I have a second job, most teddy bears have never had anothe job and didn´t survive even that one. I heard nursery care is supposed to be very demanding but a safe job in these demanding and rough times.
Still, I bet those travelling assignments will surely return and continue!

I went Paragliding ...

I went Paragliding all on my own, when i got back from the trip,

cause I didn't get a chance when I went along. It was real flying that the others did, well, they got a first time lesson and got to practice flying most of the time.


A sport in which a wide canopy resembling a parachute is attached to a person's body by a harness in order to allow them to glide through the air after jumping from or being lifted to a height.
