Summer vacation in Rimini|Sommerurlaub in Rimini

In a way, summer vacation started today! If you've been reading some of my recent articles or been following up some of my posts on Facebook and the WoW TCG forums (like the forum of the Bootcamp L.E.), chances are you already know what I'm talking about: 3 of my friends (Christian, Ronny and Schmalle) and I will take a trip to Rimini together in a camper van! We'll leave Leipzig tomorrow afternoon and be on the road for pretty much the rest of the day. We should arrive Rimini sometime Thursday afternoon after spending the night somewhere in Southern Bavaria in the camper van.

Why Rimini, you might ask? Well, turns out the European Continental Championship of the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game will take place the upcoming weekend there. Naturally, we'll all try our luck in the main event and why not spend some more days there, enjoying the sun and company of good friends?! I'm rather excited and can't wait for the tournament to begin! On the one hand, I'm a little afraid I might scrub out early again, but I'm hopeful that my preparation will suffice and help me to advance to day 2 with a comfortable record.

On Saturday, we'll be drafting. I love drafting and tend to think of myself as a rather competitive limited player, however, I wasn't doing that well in the drafts parts of past events (save the iPod draft side events – I can't complain about my record there). Let's just wait and see how it will turn out this time, in any case, I'm hopeful.

Being the crazy fools we are, we decided to provide you with a coverage of our trip (some might remember an epic trip to Budapest which was featured in similar fashion)! We'll start with that as early as tomorrow, when a first opening blurp will go live on Be sure to check it out and leave some comments!

nexTab.deWhat else is there to say? Well, my business is doing OK, now that most of the hassles with German bureaucracy have been taken care of. I'm still waiting for a final decision regarding health care, but I guess I'll do fine as long as I don't get sick. So keep your fingers crossed!
Fabian found a nice appartment in Berlin and might take it, so we should soon be able to work on some projects together and I expect business to take off then.

So yeah, all in all, I'm doing OK. Sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to do some of the work as I'm constantly at home; I still haven't found a great solution for that particular challenge. If you can come up with some good ideas, be sure to pass them on.
On the relationship front, I'm doing great. Wincy is simply amazing, it's just she doesn't like some particular traits of this country too much (well, we share that passion in a way), so she can be a little grumpy at times. I still consider leaving the country together with her, but I don't want to do so just now. First, I want to see if my own business can turn into a success and bring in enough money to make a living. If that won't work out, I guess it will finally be time to leave Germany for good.

In a nutshell: I've been able to leave some bullshit behind (German bureaucracy) and there are exciting times ahead. First a vacation in Italy, then a trip to Dortmund to catch up with some old friends and then a trip to Madrid for the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Qualifier – European Championship. Who knows, maybe I'll even start picking up a tan again with all that time in South European countries?! Let me know what you think and wish me well.
