I thought you went to Germany to be a yoga teacher ?

You seem to be on holiday permanent ?

Nice work if you can get it  :)

Hi Joe, thanks for asking about my yoga teaching! I have been giving my first lessons here at studios, plus teaching online. Being self-employed though, I can still walk around in the daytime and look at train things  :D

That said, I plan to do a bit of travel in a couple of weeks as I have not really used my 9 Euro ticket yet.

Nice to read of your continuing adventures - hope the flat share goes alright.
Interesting infrastructure to find and look for!

Cheers Dave, yes I am rather a big infrastructure fan, as it happens. :thumbsup:

Bit of a treat today at the Hbf! I don't believe I have ever previously seen a Ludmilla. Now I have seen two!

The Erfurter Bahnservice Loco in black has had a serious amount of Halfords-style accesories attached :D. LED lights and whatnot. Wouldn't surprise me if it had a souped-up sound system with subwoofer. :smiley-laughing:



Here's the CCCP manufacturer's plate.

Indeed, they are impressive monsters :thumbsup:. These ones were asleep at the time - let sleeping dogs lie, I say!

Thank you sir!

I have not done transport subjects in watercolour before, it seemed to work out ok. :angel:

Hi all,

It is baking hot today - 37 degrees C no less! I believe it has also been rather warm back in Blighty.

Yoga teaching is progressing slowly but surely. I am doing work with two different studios and have had good feedback. I really want to get private clients, as that was a focal point back in the UK. I had a nice class outdoors today, on the banks of the Elbe near the city centre.

As often menitoned, I am finaly going to do some travelling about. A 9€ trip to Bavaria is happening next week. I am looking forward to reporting on the 9€ experience for distance travelling! It is a 540km trip to Sonthofen, as the crow flies more or less, going close to the Austrian border.

I will no doubt miss seeing CD Eurocities on a daily basis, I don't believe they have them down there. ;D

Toodle pip for now
Matt

37 degrees!! I would probably combust or melt in that heat!
Yoga on the river banks - sounds very relaxing.
Good luck with your 9€ travels - we look forward to your reports!

Yes it turns out Dresden is a bit of a cauldron so-to-speak. Gets very nippy in the winter and rather hot in the summer.

Hi Matt. The BBC lunchtime news weatherman actually mentioned the weather for Dresden today. He said the heatwave had passed and it was now a more comfortable 22 degrees. :cold:
