Here I am, happily procrastinating when actually I should be writing my final end-of-module assignment … Dreaming about going on holiday is much more fun, however.
Monthly Archives: July 2014
I’ve just paid the last installment for the big trip and then watched some videos on the Hurtigruten – website.
Dreaming … December’s coming!
Getting also prepared in terms of equipment: thermo-underwear, new fleece jacket, stocking up on memory cards for the cameras – so far about 150 GB, but I doubt this is enough.
The Tale Of The Little Boy And His University
Once upon a time, in a country far far away and perhaps called Vietnam there was a little boy who had a rich father. Then, there was Christmas, and the little boy begged his rich father: ‘Daddy, do I get a university?’ So, the university was erected and perhaps called EIU and some of its buildings were finished and the rain came through the roof.
