busy days

this is the first time in the last 2 weeks i have enough time to write a short post…

first event was the "Rock am Ring" festival in Germany:
as usual i did service with the Red Cross. it was a fun weekend, although a busy one.


thanks to Henry for the photos

the most interesting part was that even responsible persons at the Red Cross seem to be willing to learn… and a lot of things improved at the organisational part of the event 🙂

next event was the Solutions Summit in Rome thursday/friday.


i really enjoyed to meet my collegues from all over europe again and beside some quality time discussing the situations in the different project, we had a lot of fun and of course some beer 🙂

more pictures from Rome as usual in my gallery

we are all in world-cup fever right now… and this is a pretty nice tool to track status of the games, get additional informations, etc
