Klagenfurt, A view from above.

Small as it may appear but has a lot of nature that one can grasp in this place. Surrounded by Alps on both of it sides, land of lakes and endless nature treasures. As I say my good bye to this wonderful place I bring this moment to share with all of you.

Christkindlmarkt – Klagenfurt, Austria

Season of christmas is the time to be with the family and enjoy those moments of togetherness. Best if you are in the european region where it means more than just a christmas tree and gifts under. It is more to the celebration of exotic foods with special drinks including wine and its variants.
This time to the proper christmas market unlike the one seen in Southwark, London,UK. This is where we listen to the christmas carols, singing people, a little bit of dancing and lot more wintry touch to enjoy the hot gluewien. Before I go ahead yapping into the flow of words – best to leave it to your imagination through the pictures.
The only thing missing year is snow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just a litle quick look through the evening filled with light, music and joyful market of christmas. Although the photos are just a quick do of what it looked like. Cant spend time right now to share all that in the better way. Till the next lot of quick winter snaps come out without snow – Have a nice holiday season.

“O Tannebaum” – I am going to practise my christmas traditional singing as long as the wonderful season lasts. Never a bad idea to stop but rather keep on going.

Time

Of the year when we start looking forward to the winter holidays and the beginning of the new year. Long look back it all goes in circles as always. Since childhood I have seen that each year from 1st of Jan till 31st of Dec runs like a perfect clockwork orange where everything settles into the rythym. We go up and down the curve of emotions filled with happy, sad and quiet times. Not all is lost in this making we just add another year to the calendar and somewhere along the year to our passing life. It may be short but the span of time is never small. To sum it all, it is the year where I took back to the blogs and somewhere along the lines I have had made this a habit to be a part of my life by doing what I like and love. In the past few months the passion has taken over me again for the things which I used to do. Not too bad I guess to get back to my life again in a new excited way. We never grow old in the way we are always rejoycing our childhood. Some may agree to give up the thoughts here but I am true to mine. Hard line between growing up, giving up and gearing up for that feeling of adulthood. Yeah, the world does it to all who go through the phases of catching up with external world outside your own insides. Not going on for too long but yes, the first snow of this winter has made its way to challenge me this morning on way to work. This global warming certainly has caused this change of not such striking cold winters. For today, Its just about looking at us and the way we have let the year go by. I will make a quick run down from the month to month timeline through the photos, of this year.

January 2011
A month that I was born in, A month to try and do something new. Had a first attempt with threesome, nice travel in Madrid and a bit of snow along.

February 2011
A slow cold month but eventually had time to look around and explore the east coast of essex and local areas. 

March 2011
It was warm then before but more quieter period of the year. A trip down to Ace cafe and an amazing night with a full moon giving me a good company.

April 2011
Travel month to make it count, with a trip down to Bristol, then flying over to Austria and finally much awaited Scotland ride to cover it all up. Travel month of the year I supose.

May 2011
Summer has started so was the power of its dullness in regards to slow life. Long days and smaller nights. Nothing to spark that usual daily life.

June 2011
Midway through the year. Lull was about to leave, had a busy month. A ride to cambridge followed with a ride to the shores of Anglesey in wales with an old friend from NYC.

July 2011
Change was evident. Life was going to more harder but nonetheless it was smooth. Some from work front and some from other things. Met new people and had a new experience of UrbanExploration. Bristol, Brighton and Guildford – travel again formed part of the life. Along came K for a ride down to south coast.

August 2011
Year has moved on really fast. Almost another trip but one with a difference of life and experience. Frankfurt am Main. Met new people, made new friends and pushed the life forward with the unknown and unseen to come as the job was finishing this month.

September 2011
Change was expected, life switched the tracks and so did I switched to BMW 1200GS like a dream that was. For a short while but amazing. Exploring the coasts of Norwich, Hunstanton and city life of London. Meeting Phil and riding along to Ace happened to be one of the best time together.

October 2011
A month of new passion and desires to be fulfilled. A long awaited new Macro lens added to the kit with Teleconverter 2x. Bristol was on charts again and so was the first auction that I was part of. Nice experience to add it all.

November 2011
Not as cold as the month of November should be. Time has clocked faster than before and it is nearing the end. Lord Mayor Show and London Occupy protestors form the ever enchanting combination not to forget walking in the woodlands adds to freshness in life.

December 2011
Far from over yet but another end. No, a new beginning soon after. Each end is another beginning – so wrap off the month with a trip down south in southampton, Bristol and above all a long haul Austria to enjoy my first Skiing session. Not all is lost there is always a leaning involved given the aim to add new skills never ends.
Compared to all the previous years snow has finally made its way. Doesnt seem to last much but its nice to see it fall.

Said all that, it is not at all bad to have a quick look into the things of the year – it just provides a new dimension to the way things work.
