My new friend, the new puppy, a knight holding fireplace utensils and 15 year old bottle of wine.








It has been a great week, Met a very sweet girl and my first friend in Hamburg, Ievgenia. Family got a new french bull dog puppy, that has been interesting considering the other dog here is a big newfoundland. Admiring some stuff in the house and to finish off the week i cooked shepherd's pie and finished the night with a glass of 15 year old Italian wine.

Videos and other thoughts:


I have some footage already and would like to start making and editing videos about my time here in Germany. Most of my readers want me to do this, the only problem is editing and making quality videos is time consuming and time is money.

This weekend i will be testing somethings out and hopefully get a good video log going but doing this takes up much of my free time and a much as i love it, and love showing you my experiences here in Germany i need to make some small income to balance my work load.

You will notice i am trying the whole adsense thing and have put a few up but i doubt it will make any impact at all, also i get commissions for sales from this store http://www.cafepress.com/americalovesgermany which has an array of America <3 Germany merchandise which I actually think some are quite cool.

Anyway i will do my best to supply quality content about my travels and impressions and hopefully be able to travel more and provide more content but unfortunately my income from working online must become more steady if i am to travel and show my readers the world. So lets see what happens and many thanks to all my readers!

German transportation:




This is the S-Bahn in Munich. It is by far the cleanest public transportation i have ever been on, in fact all of Munich and so far most all of Germany is so clean. This is nothing like the BART in San Francisco. I dont understand why more people dont live here. Low unemployment, thriving economy, very clean, beautiful buildings and scenery, Hot girls bringing you beer, great bear and food, just a train ride from many historical cities and castles, many things to do. This city is amazing.
Also many people are not driving as much as what i saw in the states, many people are very active, even the elderly people are always out walking and many people are riding bikes. I use to have stress and a hard time falling asleep, then i moved to Germany and got on a normal schedule, was active during the day and now i slept like a baby at night and have deep meaningful conversations with my host families and friends over a glass of wine. But seriously i would recommend you become active and take up a sport if you find yourself stressed or not being able to fall asleep at night and wake up tired. Buy a bike or something like this.




Special police on the lookout in Munich.





A small protest was taking place in Munich the other day against building a mosque in the city. There was a counter protest with signs saying "Munich is BUNT" There were more police in the main protest crowd then there were people

People have been asking what cameras i use for my photography. I use Canon products, mainly the T3i and the 7D which i have linked below.

A lot of houses all around Germany are built around the same model, here is an example of how a how is built.

Shooting for Easter eggs:





Today we went to a professional air rifle range to shoot for Easter eggs near Munich. I forgot my glasses but was still able to get 4 out of 5 shots on the same 1 cm square.
