Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
After 5 years, Lawrence and I have parted ways. After having traveled with me in 20 countries, he simply had enough of it. Lately he had become very tired and slow… He couldn’t handle it anymore. So, I granted him the peace and quiet, the rest that he needed…
Lawrence was my MacBook. And on Tuesday evening he went to Mac Heaven. I have to admit that I had seen it coming, but I was hoping that he would have lasted until the end of the year, let’s say until I had had my Christmas bonus, but no such luck… So, yesterday afternoon I bought a new PC. A new Windows PC.
So right now I am transferring thousands of pictures, hours and hours of music and a lot more stuff from the old to the new PC. And then there is the fact that after 5 very happy MAC years I have to get used to Windows again. And it sucked in the beginning.
Now, one day later, I am getting the hang of it again. Windows 7 isn’t that bad and at least I will be able to use Photoshop again. I also received a gift card, which I will probably use for an external hard disk. I will continue to take many many pictures and I have to store my old pictures somewhere else, that’s for sure.
And The Viking and I respected our tradition and have given a nickname to our newest electronic member: Babette. Today and the next couple of days there will be no posts on the blog. I want to take my time to reorganize all my stuff and to be honest, I am feeling a bit under the weather. But we will be back very soon!
So, goodbye Lawrence and welcome Babette! Join us and Oscar, Flat Ruthie, Elvira, Tadzio, Franz, Lulu and Bridget on our trips!
