Exhaust yourself

canyon-sqirl.jpgcanyon-mm.jpgcanyon-schattiert.jpgcanyon-overview.jpg Yesterday was "hiking day": From the rim of the Grand Canyon down to the Colorado River and back up again. This hike provided some spectacular views of the landscape, various instants of contemplation and one most lucky moment after having returned - I made it! When I reached the trail head after ten hours of hiking I saw a big warning sign: „DO NOT attempt to hike from the ... weiterlesen...

pennymania.jpg I wouldn't believe it, but it was true. I was standing in front of a trash can at the airport with one handful of pennies, ready and willing to just throw them away. In the nick of time I realized what I was about to do and that this at least didn't suit my serious education.
