The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything

8 07 2014

Since Sunday, I do know it!

I have also achieved that enlighten status to know the most important answer to the ultimate life questions:

42

..or I should know it..

The only 2 things I know for sure are:

  1. I have understood why Germans in Norway never had problem to join a mixed gender sauna where all locals area always naked: they, in the same way, have no problem attending a mixed gender bath-sauna place on a Sunday afternoon wearing nothing else than.. natural body hairs! When they were not shaven ;-) Unfortunately the ratio of pretty young girls respect to obese older guys was about 1:9..
  2. I start being too old for 2 night buses over a three nights period: yesterday night I went to bed around 9pm!!!

Once more, thanks a lot to all the nice people that left me b’day wishes on fb, email or else.. I am usually not that good in remembering birthdays!! Hugs to all of you!!





Amazing Yasuno sensei!

30 06 2014

For your start of the week I want to post the video Nagai sensei posted on Facebook, from the classes Yasuno sensei held in Kyoto in 2011, when I had also attended his seminar (as I did in 2013 and I will most probably do next year!):

Great inspiration for a Monday!

Happy start of the week you all!

REMINDER: Yasuno sensei will be in Pavia, Italy, the 4th-5th October, seminar organized by Urakasumi dojo.

 





Bring the alcohol back!!

31 05 2014

After seeing people drinking it in more than one occasion I have decided to try the “famous” Vita-malz, alcohol free malt beer.

Why?? Why??? why on earth was I so foolish?

Utterly disgusting taste! I’m going to sort of finish it just because I paid for it (at a kiosk, not in a bar!!).

Supposed to be healthy?? Bleah!! Give me the alcohol please!!





I was boarding the wrong flight!!

25 05 2014

First time in my life!! I did not notice the two flights to Amsterdam so close in time !!

Of course the machine did not recognized my ticket!

Wrong:

Right one:

Lucky mine was later, unlucky I almost ran a very long distance in this huge airport of Frankfurt. And it’s warm today… and feeling a bit the good practice of the weekend!!

Now it should be ok and I hope the people taking care if the luggage were more awake than me!!!





Hello Stavanger, I’m back..

23 05 2014

…even if only briefly!

This weekend I am back for the Aikido seminar with Roberto Martucci, 6.dan, at Jushinkan new dojo.

I left Stavanger April 1st, 2010, directed to China, after 4 years there and lots of life experiences on the work, friend, Aikido, love sides:

4 years ago in Stavanger...

Now I will be back, a little more than 4 years after, for one short weekend dedicated (almost) entirely to Aikido. With the flight I could get there will not be time for anything else..

Funny that I will travel through Frankfurt airport: in the past months I have been quite a few times in Frankfurt, but it is ages I do not pass by the airport!! Hope in no delays (today and Sunday), that the Germans will be… Germans!!





An evening walk in Trondheim

16 05 2014

Last weekend I was in Trondheim for Jorma Lyly Aikido seminar and after a wonderful time on the mats and watching on TV a lucky victory of my favourite football team, Vittorio, my best friend living in Trondheim, took me for an evening walk around the city to show me some of the street art he has been discovering lately.

Vittorio is becoming an expert of stencils and street art in Norway (and not only) and I have started enjoying as well looking for these cut-off of real life!

After the nice exploration of the local street art, we went up to Festninger to enjoy the amazing sky that just another Norwegian sunset was offering, and even without a real camera but only my terrible iPhone 3Gs I managed to capture some of that wonderful show:

Best way to leave Trondheim, in the very early morning, was another wonderful sunrise show:

So long Trondheim! I’ll be back soon, I hope!
