How to make proper Use of spare Time a.k.a. Carpe Diem!


It had been a while. Roland had either been busy with family issues or had been out of town for professional reasons. But finally our schedule and the weather cooperated nicely, and we got out the Vespas for a sweet 160km round trip through the Black Forest. Autumn is already closing in and the colours of the leaves are changing. My favourite part of the year is about to begin.

Nutze den Tag! Carpe diem!
Es war schon wieder eine Weile her, dass wir einen gemeinsamen Vespa-Ausflug gemacht hatten. Entweder war Roland mit privaten Terminen geblockt oder geschäftlich unterwegs. Doch letztendlich passten mal Wetter und Zeit zusammen und wir machten eine spontane Tour durch den Schwarzwald, bei der mal wieder 160km zusammen kamen. Der Herbst hat schon Einzug in unserer Region gehalten und die Blätter welchseln bereits ihre Farbe. Meine Lieblingsjahreszeit fängt an.

    I'm afraid that we are past that into the grey time with no more colored leaves but also no fresh, clean snow.

    1. Richard, every year I marvel at your strength with regards to encountering another dark, cold, and snowy long season. I myself am happy that we still have mild temperatures and don't have to consider heated gear.

  6. Oh ja, deine meine Lieblingsjahreszeit. Es wird auf jeden Fall nicht mehr so waaaaaaaaarm ...

    Fahrt ihr eigentlich auf den Umkreis-Touren so drauf los, mal sehen, wo der Weg uns hin führt, oder plant ihr?

    1. Stimmt, Funny. Man schwitzt nicht mehr so in seinen Plünnen. Wir fahren oft ins Blaue ohne Richtung, nach dem Motto, mal schauen, wo diese Straße hin führt... oft brauche ich dann den TomTom, um wieder nach Hause zu finden...
