Every rose has its thorn, Just like every night has its dawn

It was a dark and rainy morning. I knew below the grey mist there must be something beautiful to see. At first I didn't see it. But I kept searching. Grey turned to color, and silence began to chirp. Leaves left and birds flew. Mushrooms grew and dew dripped too.

Obscured beauty is out there. You just have to look.

1 Year ago I happened to be in New York City when the financial shit was hitting the fan.

Arrived in Germany

After an all nighter packing and cleaning our house, we made it to the airport with 30 minutes to spare. I had to pay $600 for my extra luggage (but for excess weight it could have been at least $1500) so I consider myself lucky. I brought my desktop computer, laptop, 6 harddrives, 2 surfboards, a snowboard, skateboard, some clothes, videocamera and my computer gear.

We've been in Vanessa's hometown of Meschede for almost a week getting prepared for our trip to France and Spain. Yesterday we purchased a '91 Diesel Bus and we are now gearing up to hit the road. Here's Mr. Finke's final moment in his beloved bus. Hopefully it makes it to Spain and back! We leave tomorrow morning for the French coast then down across Northern Spain to Asturias, and back to Köln!
