Just found this while surfing around. It is a video report of Le Mans 2008, which will hopefully help us overcome the frustration of having to cancel and rebook flights for the 3rd time now that the date is changed again *grrr*.
Btw. I am in the video 10 seconds in, directly in the intro... enjoy!
just a quick post to announce that the site has moved providers. I am busy rebuilding the structure, pictures etc.
Please bear with me for some time until full restore is completed.
Update: Most of the pictures and configuration are back. Now if my old provider accepts the termination message - which he should do after already releasing my domain into transit ... - blogging can go on.
Happy new year everybody! I hope you enjoyed the festive days, I certainly did. Anyway, not much has beeon going on in my skating world in the last months. I still need to share the pictures of the annual London Santa Skate 2008, that deserves a post of its own, but has yet to be written.
But today my post features new pictures we took today. With the deep frost we had last week, the first lakes are being opened to the public. So today Michi and me drove south to the "Steinhuder Meer" near Hannover, which is a huge but very shallow lake that freezes quickly. Not for a walk, but to go ice-skating! It was a great adventure, I had never skated on a big lake before, and never on natural ice since childhood.
We skated around for about two hours, until the cold wind finally crept into gloves and shoes. The ice was of very good quality, mostly perfectly smooth, and you could go and go and go with no corners... great.
Let us hope the weather remains cold, so we can maybe return next weekend! If not, there is still the ice rink session we attend on Wednesdays, to get an idea of ice technique, which definitely was not great today. But fun we had, and that is what counts most for me.
