Rock’n Roll and vintage

I mentioned CeBIT last time. Now I can show you a few pictures of our appearance as a start-up on the Microsoft booth in Hanover. Me and my boss were there which accounts to 75% of the total staff of our small little company.

But now Rock’n Roll.

Early this month I had my first gig with “Nick’s Noise” a Rock’n Roll cover band. I took one of my basses to the CeBIT because we only had 4 rehearsals before the gig and I had to practice at least 10 songs in my room after each day of work at the trade show. To be honest, that’s not a punishment to me.


For the first time in years, and I mean many years, I got paid for playing music!  I had so much fun. Hope for many more gigs to come. And if the pay covers the 6-packs we need for practicing the better. Smile

A gig of a different scale: The Jamiroquai concert in Munich Olympia Halle. JK is an amazing musician and his 12 piece band grooved out fine! I bet he can get a few more 6-packs with his pay than me.



I was twice in Berlin this month. In order to unburden our travel budgets we try to find inexpensive accommodation for our stay. The hotels we dig out are absolutely OK but they are in very old buildings built around 1900 – 1930. It is very tempting to make photos look antique when you are inspired by almost everything around you.


If you scroll down to the month of March you will see a pic of an old elevator from another similar hotel in Berlin. Sometimes it’s only the wireless lan access code that you find in your room that reminds you that this is in fact the 21st century.

More vintage.

Cars have a huge tradition in German history. I’m not telling you anything new here… So I took the family to the Mobility and Transportation Museum in Munich. I wanted to show the boys old motorbikes, trains and cars like this beautiful Alfa.


But we never expected to see the first “car” ever built! Doesn’t look much like a car though…

So many cars and so many bikes we saw. Good that it’s getting warmer, I will be riding my motorbike more often soon, oh yes! And who knows, maybe next month you will see the first pictures from hikes in the Alps and visits to several Beergardens. Mug

Until next month, do take care.
