Byron Bay Sunrise

Good morning, we (Mark and Me) went to the sunrise today!

Got up at 5.30, my room was freezing! But nevertheless, it was well worth it! Besides the sunrise itself, we saw some dolphins swimming and jumping at Wategoes – I think soon there will be whales as well. I’ll keep you informed.

You can check out how the actual sunrise looked in the following quicktime:

You can zoom in and out with the shift and the control (ctrl / strg) key, and save it with a right click (in case you want it).

We decided to go to Wategoes the next time, and take some more pictures! I am sure the other
beaches will be visited afterwards as well…

Anyway, all the best,

Last week – plus my room

Last week was quite packed – it started with meetings with my marketing group lasting up to 12 hours (twelve), because we had our presentation on wednesday so we wanted to practice quite often:
We developed a (haha – this was exactly our task:) solid marketing strategy carefully tailored to the needs [….] blablabla….

Anyway, we chose the brand eins as our theoretical client, and I think it went really well actually – now we are waiting for the grades (we’ll probably be waiting for another six weeks or so).

On wednesday – after having held the presentation – we rewarded ourselves with the nice Thai Lucy restaurant and some wine. After dinner, we went to Ulli’s place to watch some movies (apparently they were having a party, but it ended up as some police academy action).

However, I found myself totally drunk talking to Ulli until 5 o’clock and slept almost the whole next day. Niiice. The sunset woke me up at 4 pm.

Can’t remember what I did on Thursday.

On friday all the other groups who hadn’t held their presentation showed what they had done, and afterwards there was – apparently – another big party at Eddie’s place, but at the time I went there (10 pm) I was the only guy around.

Pretty boring, especially without any alcohol (I still had enough from wednesday), so I went home at about one, although Mark and Tinka showed up some time after me and it turned out to be quite nice, but I needed my bed again I guess.

However, I’ve just come back from the Pighouse Flicks Cinema where I watched „Lost in Translation“ with Mark and Carlo.
I liked it very much! Great movie, great actors, crap japanese culture, or as Mark said „I got homesick while watching“. Hehe.

Tomorrow morning we plan to watch the sunset (at 6’o’clock […]), and I try
to catch some of this kind of pics (this actually shows my room)….
See you later,

Python Dub

Yesterday was a pretty exciting adventure day!
The diving was some proper action already, but – just as that had not been enough – I arrived home after my programming workshop to find Carlo and Jens hanging around in our garden, being totally excited…. We had a nice 2.5 meters Python in our trees!

Pretty beautiful, but quite scary as well….. to impress you all a bit, i attached a little clip (see below) and put some pictures in the „TIERE“ gallery.

Later in the night, I went to the „Great Northern“ to see New Zealands top act „Salmonella Dub“ and the nice and irie „Cornerstone Roots“ band. Patrick and Tinka asked me to join them, so I did – it was really worth it (17 bucks), but – as always in small clubs – far too loud.

That’s all for now, see you later

Diving the bay

I have just been snorkeling and quickly want to tell the world that I survived!

I went to the main beach to meet Matt, Kate and Jake and another american guy and – off we went…

Amazing things happen underwater, I met thousands of different fish as well as massive sharks (scary but they were being lazy and hanging around on the ground), big turtles and a stingray.

Matt and the american guy told me about some strange named shark (obviously I forgot the name), orange brownish with interesting patterns. I didn’t see it as I lost the rest of the group earlier and went out. Boring Lasse, but swimming around for 40 minutes is rather exhausting, especially if you haven’t done any sports for weeks!

However, I took my underwater cam with me and now I am waiting for the pictures which I’ll upload in a week or so. I guess they will be quite dark anyway but may be enough to let you know how it looks down here.

See you later

Eurovision Song Contest


I hope everybody enjoyed the show…. I think it was crap (big time), but I liked the Ukraine and – of course – Max the Man. But it couldn’t get much funnier than those little Guys from Austria, could it? Just to remind you who it was, I’ve found this nice little pic on the net: „Tie Break“

I am still wondering how they managed to enter the contest (= they must have been chosen from the austrian people!)…. however, I am currently listening to „Athena“, the band which invented „turkish ska“ and came up with the nice „Turkish Delight“ shirt….. and I must say, it is a nice album („Athena – Holigan“), although I cannot understand a single (turkish) word….. Almost forgot: I think Stefan Raab in his role as the german guitar player(in the background behind Max loosing his voice) was pretty cool as well.

However, I keep on working. See you later

…addicted to The Cat Empire

Aloha, i must admit: i am totally addicted. cannot stop listening to „The Cat Empire“, they are definitely in the book of crazy musicians, and I recommend just buying their albums…. nooo, I don’t get anything out of it.

Being honest, it is just great music and worth a try for y’all. puh. had to be said. And by the way, their web page is quite fancy as well!

Nothing else to say – yesterday was one of the hardest days, I got up at around eight, worked in the morning till half past 12, went to school till 4, went back home, returned to school at 4.45 and came home at around midnight after workshops and a meeting with my marketing-teammates Patrick and Fabian…. it is not much better today, but at least I just found some time to tell you guys. by the way, do you all enjoy the webcam? I finally figured out how to adjust it to the bright sunlight outside (hey, just took me 9 months!)… the foggy feature is our mosquito net….

so – have to start working again,
see you soon


…sorry for being so quiet

Hi there,

sorry for being so „lazy“, but firstly, my computer was not working for a couple of weeks (almost), and secondly my parents came to visit and took my girlfriend….. so, Julia has left for a little break in Bielefeld, studying….not much happening here anymore. I am working all day trying not to be too lonesome, and during breaks, I call her!

However, as you can see, not much time for gonesurfin

…but, as a little excuse, I uploaded the following little clip and will try to write a little note every now and then.

See you later,
