Well today was bit of a non-event. I really just felt like bumming around the house. I did a bit of research on the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro and found a 14 day trekking trip that sounds pretty awesome so I sent an email off about it to Intrepid Travel. I watched a couple of movies, did some washing, did some shopping and had a late lunch.
I decided to do some stretching and strengthening exercises later in the afternoon and really enjoyed just loosen up my body after yesterdays sustained bouldering session @Boulderwelt, Muchen Ost. I met a really cool German guy Nathaniel and he basically gave me a guided tour of the gym and the associated grading system that they used. It was great afternoon of climbing and socialising with the locals. Thanks Thani 🙂
Paul arrived home around 4pm with the shopping and then headed out for a mountain bike ride. Erin turned up a little later and we sat and talked over a New Zealand Sav Blanc and watched a great TED Talk on emotional intelligence called “emotional hygiene“. Really informative and perfectly illustrates a flaw in our thinking as humans. The other one we watched was by Monica Lewinsky called “the price of shame“…..this was one of the best I have seen.
Erin and I decided to cook an easy Satay Tofu with veggies for dinner and dessert was wild berries picked from the local woods by Paul on the way home on the bike. All in all a pretty good day actually. Time for an early night. Paul and I are off to climb at Kochel tomorrow for the day……… 🙂
