  • Just two pictures from Canada The past days and even the upcoming ones, I don't have really time to write a lot in my blog, as you can imagine, even less time to share pictures.

  • Stucking in Tofino At the moment I sit in a pharmacy (with Internet access) in a very small town called Tofino. People recommeded me to go there, but without a car, you really stuck here. Anyway, the beach is very nice. Check back soon.
  • Greetings from Victoria! Today I arrived in Victoria Island, came here by boat, and I am at a friend of a couchsurfer I met in Vancouver. I am not sure what I am doing next, propably I head north to Tofino that's not sure. Afterwards I go back to Vancouver and might head east to the Rocky Montains, Calgory and Banff - No warranty given!
  • Festival & Hiking The past days I was on a festival with some friends I have here now. It was awesome!! We were on a music festival in Squamish, it was great!! Today I was hiking with a friend from the US and friends from Canada and France in the Coast-Rockies. It was so great to climb up the rocks and even in the Rockies! Afterwards we were swimming in a lake next to the Pacific Ocean! Check back in later...

  • Greetings from the Niagara Falls! Hi folks. I am sitting currently in a library in Niagara Falls on the Canada/USA border. The falls are amazing, took many pictures by now.

  • Kino: The Happening Yesterday night, I went with my host to the movies in Montreal: The happening. I don't know if it's called the same way in German. The thriller was awesome, I like that kind of frighten movies! As was playing in the state of New York, it "happend" pretty close to where I am sitting write now, because the border to the US is just 60km away from here. My rating: 8 out of 10

  • Hosting Canadians Diese Woche hatte ich das Glück, zwei liebe Kanadierinnen hosten zu können hier in Wien. Warum Glück? Ich nutzte gestern Abend die Gelegenheit eine Roadmap aufzusetzen: Montreal (Québec), Toronto (Ontario), Niragara Falls (Ontario), Chicago (USA) ???, Vancoover City (British Columbia), Victoria (British Columbia), Ottowa (Québec), Tras Rivers (Québec), Québec city (Québec). Bin schon sehr gespannt was mich dort alles erwarten wird!!!

  • Slowakisch Kurs & Gäste Am Montag gings das letzte Mal in diesem Semester in den Slowakisch Kurs! Haben ein wenig geübt und wiederholt. Danach habe ich meine Gäste aus Kanada empfangen, sie bleiben bis Donnerstag hier. Recht prakatisch finde ich, da ich ja selbst jetzt nach Kanada fliege :-)
  • Gruesse aus der EU Kommission in Bruessel Bin gerade in Bruessel in der EU Kommission; Sehr interessant hier. Die Tastatur ist ein wenig seltsam darum schreibe ich nun schoene Gruesse. Aus Belgien, Bruessel, Dominik
  • 100% Auslastung Derzeit laufe ich auf 100% Auslastung. Klar, mehr oder weniger bin ich natürlich selber daran schuld, aber Kanada rückt immer näher und ich muss noch so vieles davor erledigen, bevor ich mich von Europa verabschiede... Jetzt kann ich mit meinem Mobilfunknetzbetreiber auch noch rumstreiten, das ist so mühsam! Ich habe das Gefühl ich komme zu gar nichts! Den Internationalen Führerschein hab ich auch noch nicht und jetzt fliege "gleich" nach Brüssel. Naja ein wenig Auszeit von Arbeit & Alltag!
  • Dublin Dispatches As I retured home today from Dublin, I feel a bit exhausted. To be honest, I didn't expect to sleep so well in a 16 bed dormitory room: All of my roommates were very careful and silent - I just came home late :-) Anyway I already uploaded my pictures from Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. UPDATE: Story of Dublin completed, check it out now! :-)
  • Slowakisch Kurs & Couchsurfing Am Montagabend gings wieder in den Slowakisch Kurs. Haben den Komerativ gelernt, der ausnahmsweise gar nicht mal so schwer war. Danach war ich mit Andy B und Paul S auf einem Couchsurfing BBQ Treffen auf der Donauinsel. Heute Dienstag gings nach der Arbeit aufs Konzert für Europa, welches wie jedes Jahr bei Regen statt fand leider, aber auch hier haben wir uns mit Couchsurfern getroffen :-)
  • Lernen, Quizzen, Treffen und Reisen Diesmal nur kurz: Montag Slowakisch Kurs - Hier haben wir den Imperativ geübt.

Habe mich mit einer Freundin im ersten Bezirk am Badeschiff getroffen und am Mittwoch gabs einen Betriebsausflug mit der MS Stadt Wien nach Tulln - Fotos folgen
