Seckel Germany, Google it, I dare you


So my trip is finally winding down and with less than a week till I hit LA it seems like all my directional desicions are made for me. For those of you that have traveled before you can understand what a sigh of relief that is after 2.73 months of travel NOT deciding where to go next is a deelightful change of pace.

I have just arrived at my German side of the family’s house in Seckel, Google it, I dare you. For those Google map savy people you will see that Seckel is comprised of 6 houses. Here I am thinking I grew up in a “small” town with one stoplight. They don’t even have a stoplight. Epic.

However the view here is unbeatable and as I type this post the rain is beating down on the windows of the Paradise Travels  (German Travel company run out of the house) Which has a panorama view of the beautiful valley below. The office is  just off my very OWN bedroom. That is right, I have my own bedroom while I stay here, no loud Italians can come in at 3am having an intense discussion at the top of their lungs. Rest, peace and quiet will be the them of the next couple of days. I hope to devour the two colossal books I got in Dresden and perhaps finally start to fill the sketchpad I bought in Berlin…..a month and a half ago. Drawing stick people is kind of what brought me to Photography but who says I can’t attempt to at least graduate passable anatomy.

The other thing that will be on my mind during the next couple of weeks is finding a place back home. I hope to move out for January 1st. Might be a total pain with the Olympics coming up and all but I will at least attempt it. If anyone reading this knows of people that are looking for a deelightfully tall roomate, let me know.

See you all soon.

    Hey there Kurtis…glad to hear the trip has been going well…I do miss the pictures though (as I am not on facebook). I had friends you could have visited in Paris…next trip. JUST SO YOU KNOW…YOU HAVE A JOB WHEN YOU GET HOME!!!

    Also…let me know if you need some temporary digs as I might be away at the time you are getting back and “transitioning”. I am also aware of a couple of my friends who might be ‘departing’ their residences from Jan-March….it’s a start.

    See you soon…oh…and any travel trips for Michael (my son) would be good as he is spending a couple weeks in Moscow and St. Petersburgh over Christmas.

    OH YEAH…I almost forgot…I know you will be in LA for 3 weeks but if by chance you get NORTH closer to San Francisco and need a place to stay…let me know…that’s home stomping ground and I could set you up with family and friends if you needed.
    See you soon….and know that YOU ARE MISSED
