Already back into routine…
I know, I know, haven’t been too chatty in the past two weeks. Will copy the trip report to my http://www.andreaonline.de-page. It is already written, I just need to copy it over and upload it. But to already let you know: I had a blast. North Carolina is a beautiful spot, great landscape and indian summer was just to begin. We had great weather and I forgot about work which was something I really needed. The friends I met at the Highland Lake Inn were absolutely great. I had met some of them before in real life but not all of them. We had a great time with lots and lots of fun. Of course I took lots and lots of pictures. My personal highlight was the excursion to Chimney Rock National Park where I went with Jackie from Winnipeg. I met Jackie and Bob for the first time 3 years ago in Mexico and have been shopping for Bob ever since as he collects pins from the Hard Rock Cafes. Jackie loves to take pics as much as I do and people were probably thinking we were crazy when we were both sitting in the gras of a farm yard taking pictures of pumpkins… 😀 Chimney Rock was great but on the way back to the Inn we had seen so many beautiful spots that we stopped a lot to take pictures. Took us half an hour to drive one mile…. 😉
Thanks, peeps, for being there, I had a great time and special thanks to Jack and Linda who were the hosts and went up and beyond to make us comfortable.
But I am back into my daily routine already as work sort of struck me as soon as I was back. Further to that my ear started hurting last sunday (probably got the infection during the bonfire at the lake on saturday evening) and I went to the doc as soon as I was back. He couldn’t see much so he sent me to the specialist. And HE told me I had an eczematose infection. I knew already it was nothing serious since I hadn’t had any problems when flying home but I wanted to make sure that it was nothing serious since I wanna go diving next sunday… 🙂 I have the impression that the infection is nearly gone (just not sure how you can get an eczema inside your ear…).
It was so great to finally meet you, Andrea! Your pictures are amazing and I’m glad you had a good time. Until next time… auf wiederheren… (is that right??)
Char, I am happy to have met you too. Was about time… 😉 And your german is nearly perfect. 🙂
