After two months of absence the wheels of steel in my Vienna bedroom studio had an irresistible attraction. I grabbed some nice jazzy flavours and played around a little bit.

For Easter i flew home to Vienna to meet with my friends and family. According to Murphy´s law most of them were not in Vienna when i was. However Mrs. N and i joined a relaxing evening at Club-U, a nice picnic on Easter Sunday in the famous Vienna Prater and a few drinks on Monday evening at the Cuadro.

Good weather like today points mostly to activities outdoors such as hurting yourself during a skate trip or dropping your bike into the north sea on the way home. Fortunately none of before mentioned things happened and we, that means Mr. T and i, decided to visit the lovely town of Delft. For those who have no idea about Delft (like me), this was the hometown of Vermeer, one of the most famous painters in the baroque era (1575-1770) in the Netherlands. On the way home back to Brielle we took the car ferry to cross the port entrance of Rotterdam. Nice day. Delft will see me again for sure.

To celebrate my girlfriend´s 30st birthday we spent a relaxing day at Rockanje Beach. Had a superb lunch at the View with a classic Club Sandwich and a roasted salmon bread. For recreation we walked our meal off with a stroll around the beach watching a whole bunch of kite surfers performing their stylish tricks.
Brielle was an important strategic village in the 16th century during the invasion of the Spanish troops in the Netherlands and played an imposing role during the fights to get rid of them again. For further information please follow this link: 1st April in Brielle. To get to the point: Celebration around lunch time until 5pm, accompanied with enormous amounts of beer, even when the celebration has ended...
