    Default Holidays

    Hey all!

    As usual, the news section has been left inactive for a few months so here's an update! I'm currently enjoying my holidays for a few weeks. The first thing my fiance and I did was leave for a trip to Italy. Here are some photos: https://goo.gl/photos/QZaUvKGqYXWRp4616

    What about you guys? How are you spending your summer or life in general?

    See you in the froums!

    I travelled across the brick-obsessed regions known as Wales and England. The rain and warm air could never be escaped Food was good tho, I found a sushi bar with conveyor bands! As soon as I came back to Finland I visited the yearly viking market and got me some rad stuff including an ox drinking horn.

    Relaxing and adventureous at the same time. I had never rented a car before but all went smoothly And the Italians were easier on the roads than I had imagined so that was a relief.

    I'm going to Italy to do a week long computational mechanics course. The best holiday anyone might hope for.

    That's really cute. We've never gotten so many pictures at once. Looks like you're having fun. All the best and enjoy the holidays!

    Does your girl check these forums sometimes? Is she into castle?

    I am back in Germany again since about half a year after spending almost 2 years abroad in South America. Now I know a bit of Spanish and have an Ecuadorian girlfriend. I'm trying to get a good job to save up for a plane ticket and marriage that's more out of necessity for her to be able to live with me in Germany than us actually wanting to get married. It's really hard for us lower class people to have her migrate here to live and work. But it's a goal in life that's giving me direction and although it's hard and there's many obstacles in the way, we're staying together and working on it.

    I will also get my driver's license by the end of this month (hopefully). Then I'll be allowed to drive.. Legally

    This whole taking my life into my own hands business has matured me by a bit.

    I heard Rusty will come to Germany this year. Maybe I'll meet him. I could also let him spend a few nights at my place as he let me stay at his in Finland

    Rachel Constantine: The fact that it recorded static isn't what interests me. What interests me is that it recorded approximately eighteen hours of it.

    Damn, Oscar.

    That picture with the umbrellas and the mountain on the background is beautiful (though practically all of the pics you took are, but that one just stands out for me). It totally reminds me of a certain scene from Star Wars II.

    I have been to Lake Garda, Verona, and Venice. Italy is the best country in the Mediterranean, without a doubt, with Spain taking second place.
