Blog Entry #600: The Eagle has landed.


Or more acurately ... Scooterbob has made it to Germany. The wooden scooter left Key West in Florida about two weeks ago, fearlessly crossed the Atlantic on its own, and landed safe and sound in the heart of the Black Forest.

Tonight's evening was mild, and so we sat on the front porch to enjoy the sunset, with a glas of Hugo Rosé cocktail (Prosecco, elderflower syrup, lime juice, fresh mint and soda water). Here's to my late friend, Bob Leong.

I plan on keeping Scooterbob for a about six weeks, to show it some of my favourite places in Germany before I'll ship it to its next destination. Please stay tuned for updates.
