Hello Everyone,

Its been a bit of a crazy week. I've only had one day of 'nothing', but that is not a bad thing :-)

I've gone on a number of little excursions, including a trip to the Säntis (a mountain) and a couple of trips to Zürich (I love that City :D ).

One of Heinz's (my generous host and Husband of my Godmother) friend owns a Hot-air baloon, and Heinz and I formed part of the Ground-Crew Yesterday. In other words, he had to set up the baloon, which was a lot of fun, get it off the ground and then chase it in the car to help during the landing. It stayed in the air for 2 hours.

I've been doing a lot of walking and hiking, but I've still put on 1kg :-( My relatives are feeding me all sorts of delicious foods that I cant resist :-)

I always forget to wirte about the most exciting things, but you get that.

Here is the next batch of Photos. There are a lot of things I want to show you, so I appologise for uploading so many at once.

Take Care everyone :hug:

General Information

Greetings all,

As some of you may know, I have left on a little trip. This trip will last between 3 and 12 months, depending on the work I might be able to get my hands on in Europe.

What does this mean for deviantart and me

My plan at the moment is to visit DA on a regular basis for the first couple of months while I am still in Switzerland. After that I am likely only check in once every week or two.
The aim is to upload a photo from every city or place I visit as well as 'perhaps' update my Journal- hopefully on a regular basis as stated above.

Sadly, during my travels, I am unlikely to have enough time to actually comment on other peoples work... though I will answer comments and questions that some of you MAY have.

Take Care everyone :aww:

Good to see the update Peter!
It's nice to see you having a good time with your life :)

I wish you had been here in Perth to see 'We Will Rock You', just because the guy playing the character Pop was the spitting image of Brian Greame(sp?) :P

"It's nice to see you having a good time with your life" - While I am having a good time, I am also having a crap time in my head :-(

The main reason for going on this trip is to sort out some issues, and it is proving to be a lot harder than I expected.

I must say, I'd love to see 'We will Rock you' for that reason alone :aww: I actually miss Brian (Greem) a little :-)

Feel free to email me with any news you may have.
