Settlers of Catan

In the last days, when my nephew Meiki
Meiki
was here, we played the card game "settlers of catan". We played all 6 extensions in 10 games. The score is 6:4 for him. He plays quite good.

croatia holiday

Because of bad weather forecast we missed the last highway exit to croatia an ended up in upper austria in Riedersbach at my sister's home. We had some nice trips to Alt├Âtting, Haselbach and Braunau. We also visited Salzburg, one "Orgelkonzert", the Getreidegasse, and had a wonderful time with my sister's family. Now my nephew came with us to me to see how nice Tirol and his uncle are. :-)

Slept long

, because: Went home on sunday, got to bed at 6 p.m., slept until 3 p.m. next day exept a short break for mini-lunch. Went straight to the doctor and he said: ulcerously angina. Got antibiotica and anti-hurt-pills. At 7 p.m. I went to my dentist an she filled up two teeth. And she was very pleased that the other doctor gave me those anti-hurt-pills and the antibioticas, because they would help against possible troubles with my teeth too.

Alpine coaster

With friends of Graz we went to Hochimst and enjoyed the run with the alpine coaster. Klausi (age 4) wanted me to be his driver, and I am a _very_ fast driver! He enjoyed it too. He always screamd "Gasgeben, gasgeben!" It was a great, funny experience. The final act was a damage of my right middle-finger. A strain af the tendon. But I hope it will be healed until Ferrara.

Melting pot

The last days at home I thought it was hot. 36 deg C on the terrace, 32 deg C at the north part of the house in the shadow. But yesterday I was cycling in Innsbruck. I had no thermometer but there must have been 36 deg C in the shadow parts of the streets. I nearly colapsed. Sweating didn't stop until late in the evening. Now it's cool: 20 deg C outside and 25 deg C inside.

cats gift

Got a gift from catman. A mouse. Although he is 9 years old and has only one remaining tusk. It is the first time here in the house. Thanks, catman! The only thing I could not do was eating the mouse while he was watching me.

not driving home

Katharina is 18 since last thursday. Today she had her practical drivers licence test and she got it. And she got a sheet immediately, with wich she can drive from now on. We met in Neustift, she told me the facts and I asked her, if she wants to drive home to Obsteig: yes, she wants. And so she had her first long distance drive, 65km, 50 minutes, more than 100 km/h with highway, roundabout, road-works and parking in alone. She had done her job well and I was feeling save with her. It was funny to watch her in stressful situations: gears, winker, gas, breaks, mirrors (in the roundabout traffic). But all right, she'd done it well.

Visiting the actor

Had a nice trip to Vorarlberg, visiting Georg as actor.
Georg
Afterwards we visited the Gasthaus Engel, and got a beer because we were from Tirol. It lasted long and we slept long. After the brunch we visited Bregenz, the Ried and got the train back to Tirol. Luckily I met Ingrid in the train home, she was in Buchs. Here is a picture from the visitors:

Churburg and others

On saturday we had a trip to south tirol. First stop was the lake at the Reschenpass. Visiting the tower of the church of Graun, which has a terrible history: Graun. Next stop was the smallest city of Europe, Glurns. Wonderful, looks like Carcassonne. Then we went to Schluderns, had a meal in the one and only restaurant that was very delicious! Walking upwards the hill we visited the Churburg, that was very impressiv! Go to my picture-site to have a look. There I had the chance to try to wear a knights suite. 25 kg of metal tried to pull me down. Imagine: That was not the whole suite! Only the mail shirt, the iron capuz, the steel gloves and the helmet! Have a look:
Chrisu als Ritter
