Well Happy New Year! For the first time I was up for New Year’ Eve, but strange, there were no fireworks or anything. We had just arrived from Bangkok and I was still running on Bangkok time, 6 p.m. in Munich and 12 p.m. there. After what was for me midnight, I went to bed and never even woke up when the fireworks went off outside our windows.
First day of the year and the sun was shining! If that isn’t a good omen, here at least. I had a lovely ride around midday when it warmed up to about 2°C. The air was good, I rode through the woods that I love so much. Again I saw there is always plenty to take pictures of although I have ridden the same paths often by now. After a few shots my battery was finished, but I decided that was ok, my bicycle isn’t a prop, it’s to ride, so I set off for a longer ride than I had originally planned. Didn’t see any favorite rocks, though. Next time.
Got home and was shocked to see that I had again – and this isn’t funny any more – forgotten to put the memory card back in my camera. I decided I would just cheat and use a picture from the following day, who would know. I don’t know why, but I then found myself putting on my jacket and gloves and carrying my handlebar bag with camera including a fresh battery and memory card back out to the garage. I got my bicycle out once more and cycled down the road for a picture on January 1, 2020.
