Rutenfest was again awesome. I always feel fortunate to be able to spend time with all my friends there. It's a ton of people that you only see once a year and you still have a somewhat close relationship with all of them. In the US this would be the 10 year reunion or so.

Anyhow, I had two guests from Romania who got to take a look at my crazy city during this interesting time of the year. They rented a car which we used to drive to the airport on the 3rd. It was a very nice day and I had just about recovered from the festival. Quite nice how well everything worked out at the airport, returning the car and so on.

I was desperately trying to call my friend Mano in Stuttgart to meet me for a cup of coffee before taking off to Hungary and then Romania. I couldn't reach him of course... this was at noon and he was probably still asleep recovering from the Saturday night party.

The flight is really convenient and cheap. We were flying Germanwings, which is one of the discounters in Europe. You can get flights for €1 where you only need to pay for taxes and the flight is like a cab, you hop in, pick any seat and off you go.

Once we arrived in Hungary, we had a driver waiting for us. This was rather by mistake, usually we take the mini bus which takes you directly to Romania, but my friend's sister messed up booking it. The cost is still only $100 for the 4 hour drive. Typically they charge you about $20 per person for the bus and $25 per person for the train., so this wasn't a bad deal at all.

Anyhow, when I arrived in Oradea I called up a friend to hit the town a little bit. I ended up partying again!!! This club I went to is called Escape... Quite fun place indeed and CHEAP! Hehehehehe

Another effect are the fogs, caused of the warm air, coming up from the lake. Ravensburg also lies in the direction of the warm winds, coming up from the mediterreanean sea. In the past that made it also possible to grow wine at about 500 metres over NN. Transports Ravensburg is good situated, regarding the traffic. Public transport connects you to all the surrounding villages and cities, also to many places within Ravensburg. Besides that, the city has got an railwaystation, recently renovated, that brings you easily for example to Ulm, which is an railway hub, connecting you to everywhere else in germany or directly to the lake of...
