So I Owe You All Some News

I know what the three of you who read this blog are thinking, "what, you're not dead?" I will cut to the chase. I am dating a girl and I would rather spend time with her then update my blog. So why now the update? "Where is she?" you ask. She has gone back to her home in Slovakia. Her name is Katarina and I meet her at camp this summer. She just went back home a few days ago. I am planning to leave to go see her on the 12th. of September. She came over this summer with her friend Martina. The three of us hung out together most nights watching TV or listen to music. I do like the Slovak music they listen to. They both spoke English well enough to get by, it just took a little time until we could speak easily, some libations also helped. I am looking forward to heading over to the capital city Bratislava. I am going to live with Kate and a few friends in a flat in the city. I will come home in late November for my sisters wedding in early December. I then plan on heading back to Bratislava for the winter until around June 1st. It is one one hour away from Vienna so I am looking forward to photographing the alps in the winter.  The last few months seem like a blur sometimes now, it goes by so fast. I look forward to what the next few months have to offer.  I do plan on do more updating once I start my travels back up. For those of you who have been with me from the start with the trip around the world should look forward to my travel rants starting up again. For those of you who missed it start at the bottom of the page of January 2005 and start reading up until you see the pictures in February. It's a great time waster at work. I am still trying to figure out if it is cheaper to buy a new laptop then it is to ship my HUGE Mac Pro over and back and still have to buy a monitor over there. I think a new mac book would do fine. As for the rest of my summer, camp was great, no major issues, good or bad. I did spend a lot of time with Kate so no real good stories for you guys, sorry. I am spending the rest of my time in camp before flying over is putting together a DVD slide show and photo calender to send to the campers. This will take me into next week, I  will then get everything I need to take with me ready to go and make sure all the stuff I have to get buttoned up before heading overseas for an extended period. It's nice to be able to keep the few things I own here at camp for the winter. I plan on only going with a backpack, a large duffel bag and a laptop/camera bag. I did the last trip with a little less but moving around was the main issue and traveling light is the key.
