Last year in summer we went to Grand Manan Island way out in the Atlantic ocean. There we went
camping, hiking and whalewatching. While on a boat in the Fundy Bay we saw many Dolphins and whales.
On the picture here you can see one of the rare Right whales that always come to Fundy for the summer.
We also went camping to Mt. Carleton, the highest peak in the Maritimes, in the middle of New Brunswick.
This is like going to the end of the world, a real wilderness trip. Nobody lives there for 100km all around, except bears,
cougars, moose, deer and many other animals. There is no electricity, no tap water or any of the comfortable
things I have at home.
To go grocery or candy shopping you have to drive 80km back and forth. But it was great, living
without civilization, at least for a little while. We climbed up Mt. Carleton mountain, first in the woods, then
the last 500m over big rocks and it was a hard climb at the end. We had beautiful sunshine and a tremendous view
from the top. The little red spot in the picture that's me. But I am glad to be back at home now.
I love to play games on my computer and on the Internet with friends. A while ago I got a gasoline powered remote control T-Maxx car which I race up and down my street. I also like to fly my little electric and big gasoline powered air planes on the weekends. Since a few years ago I am also going to gymnastics where my sister used to go, and I had the opportunity to participate in the Canada Games 2003. I also sometimes go to the soccer training camps in summer.
As you can see in my photos, which are mostly from a time when I was much younger, I like to eat good things, like lobster at home and Spaetzle in Stuttgart. During our holidays in Stuttgart my sister and I had warm Brezels with butter in the Koenigstrasse. I also like very much the toy store Spielwaren Kurtz in Stuttgart. There I got many toys, and my grandparents used to send me Paeckchens with lots of delicious chocolates and toys.
Soon winter is coming again with lots of snow and ice. Here I show you what this was like and you can admire the big icecicles that I am holding in my arms, they are almost bigger than me and icy cold - brrrrh..
