Mixed bag


Christine and I went to the VW factory on Monday. Visiting the factory is probably more like visiting a theme park on the gold coast. There are rides and a number of attractions. touring through the factory watching the cars being put together. The best bit was probably getting to drive the VW Touareg Diesel V6 on the 4WD obstacle course.






As I wind down the last few days of singledom I thought I'd give you some more serious reflections on my time so far. Things are starting to get the business end of the wedding stuff, managing logistics and the like. I miss all my freinds back home more than I thought realized I would. It was great to have Dave arrive yesterday. Being a different country has also been more difficult than I anticipated and I've found the language barrier the most difficult part. It's made me realise how much I enjoy just chatting to people and saying g'day.

Having said that Germany is a very beautiful place and Christine and her parents have been wonderful hosts. I can especially recommend the bread here. I'll probably try and pop a couple more posts out before the big day.

Hey Mike,

We may not be there physically, but that doesn't mean we still aren't there for ya.

there are RIDES?!? It's a car factory. Weird.

But I must agree with you about the bread... the first pic I took in Germany was of the spready cheese and bread we ate for our first meal. Killer.

I love Autostadt! I went there during winter in 2001 and they had an ice skating rink set up.

Germany has the best bread in the world!! Eat lots of it!!

A design fault with the car you drove. The key is not easily turned from outside the car with the window down. This makes servicing very difficult.
