Aug 29th - Konstanz

Posted by Bill Bickford on Sunday, August 30, 2015,
Headed south Saturday afternoon to a town on the border between Germany and Switzerland, called Konstanz.  It was a relatively short drive and the town itself is a nice one.  It's built on the Rhine river and also Lake Constance.  It was pretty neat to just walk around and see all the places that you see online all the time.  I saw the "beach" where you could swim in a controlled part of the river.  Overall it was a "typical" German town that I've seen quite a few times already.  Has a shoppi...

Aug 25th - Another day

Posted by Bill Bickford on Tuesday, August 25, 2015,
So another day closer to leaving this place and I'm looking forward to it.  Can't wait to get back to the good ole U.S.A. so I can get back to a normal life.  I miss a lot of the restaurants and everyday life a lot of people take for granted.  Be nice to see friends and family when I get back. 

I know this isn't much of an update but wanted to write and say eh.

Until the next time...

Aug 16th - Cooling down???

Posted by Bill Bickford on Sunday, August 16, 2015,
Greetings all from Germany.  This has been a great birthday weekend for the BBP.  Mostly because of the weather has been cooling down and we've been getting some rain.  I have to say, it's nice not to be sweating just from a walk to the car.  That gets old very fast.

Went cave exploring yesterday and found Bear Cave, or as it's called here Barenhohle.  Was an interesting cave and while it wasn't very big, it did have some neat views within.  One thing I noticed though is that there is no prote...

August 12th - Happy Birthday

Posted by Bill Bickford on Wednesday, August 12, 2015,
Happy Birthday to Mr.  BB.  Can't believe it's another year gone by.  Amazing how time does fly as you get older.  Why is that?  You have days that zoom by and others that drag.  The ones that zoom are typically the ones that you're having a great day and are out and about while the ones that drag are the days spent at work. 

I am again spending my birthday  in Germany where I spent last year's as well.  In the past 4 years, I've had one birthday at home.  Oh well.  I'm not huge into my birth...

Aug 1st - Welcome August

Posted by Bill Bickford on Saturday, August 1, 2015,
Here we are now in August.  I can't believe how fast this year is going by but it just keeps going and going.  Anyway, today is the first day of my 90 days.  Yes, I'm still in Germany as I was extended for another 3 months.  I love it and am not complaining but I can't wait to get back to the states. 

As for this weekend, I am laying low and just recharging my batteries as I've been on the move the past few weekends and am just a bit tired.  No need to burn myself out.  There are a few more p...
