Sorry for non-updating the blog since quiet some time, but I was on vacation and really feel refreshed and regenerated. Ok, after one day at work everything comes back to normal, but still…

A lot of stuff happened during my vacation, most of the time I was visiting my parents and friends at home, but also spend some time at a friends place in Hamburg. As soon as I get some pictures I will write something about the trip. But first let us come back to the topic.

As I do not own a car currently, I used my parents one. They bought a used one quiet some time ago and so it is no problem to let the son drive with it :P I had it for four times, and now let me only summarize what happened during that time with that car.

  • It was Champion’s League day. The popular match Bayern München against Real Madrid. I was heading to a friend to watch the match there having a chilling evening. On the way I only heard some loud noise from below the car. Some of you might know this sound. The exhaust pipe fell off. Darn, trying to get it off the locking system (as each car has it, so you do not really loose it) was impossible, as it was totally locked. So the only thing I could do was driving home with the pipe scratching on the ground, get some tools and be a little bit more brutal to it. At least it sounded better that evening without the exhauster :)
  • One day later. I drove to a Kreator concert. The supporter band Celtic Frost sucked many times, but Kreator was really a killer. I was totally impressed by them, as I saw them some years ago on the Graspop festival in Belgium, and there it was more like a standard gig. But afterwards I wanted to head back to my car. As we stayed a lttle bit longer in the hall, I did not care about most cars being away. But there you got me. The car was towed away. Screw you Cologne!!! I was parking at that street since more than 8 years now for each concert and it never was problem. To summarize the whole process of walking through Cologne getting my car back, it costed me around 130 Euros.
  • Two days later. As I needed to get my tuxedo to the laundry I took devil’s car again. Now what can happen next, you might ask? Well, a car has multiple parts to break, and this time it was a tire. It got totally flat during driving. God I was so p$(”§/… And the screws were already that old, that there was no chance to exchange the tire without proper help. Luckily a car garage was right next to the place the car stood and even more luckily the intern had to help me :)

I think now you know everything about my relationship to this car… Darn… Next time more positive news…
