Travel agency or online booking?

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

A group of friends and I were planing to go to Mallorca together. Sadly I can't go however I was long enough in the group chat to catch the basic information of the adventure.

My friends went to the travel agency to inform themselves about the general offers. These offers far more then they originally planed to spend, this not stopping them. Having one goal: Mallorca. However as I then went online to look at the hotel I came across multiple choices that were the same price and same dates but with more to offer.

As I suggested this in the group on which I was meet, from one friend, "we already have an offer", "you have to be careful with online booking",  "we'll keep it in mind and ask the guy that the travel agency"

At this point I lost all faith. The employee in the travel agency is trying to make profit he not going to give way ust because the Internet has better offers. This, however, was the time where I found out I couldn't go with them so I left them to it and I am quite interested what they then choose in the end.

What do you think? Travel agency or online booking?

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

Boom... Crash... and it happened

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

Boom... Crash... And it happened. Your phone falls and if your unlucky on the cold hard floor that it breaks. Ok this may not be something new for some but for me it's the first time.

Last post I told you about Fasching, this holiday has a lot of alkohol involved. On the day of the parade people go to the bars afterwards and our town hall has the best party. Sadly for my phone cobblestone pavement. There my phone sliped out my hand and half od the screen stopped responding. Nothing like this has ever happened to me so the next day I googled all the possible solutions to fix my phone.

If you are a clumsy person don't buy a Sony Xperia because if something happens to your screen you with have to pay a nice price. They can't just change the screen but they have to change the rim with it.

Now I have to give a shoutout to Effis Tec UG in Frankfurt he was the by far cheapest and quickest here. On Monday he git my phone and I picked the phone up on Friday (due to other errors that are not his fault he was 2 days slower). My phone works and I didn't lose any data. If you look closely you can see that it was fix but for the price really good.

Have you ever broke your phone?

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

What is the best holiday in the year?

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

Every year there comes a time in which the streets are colourful and the people happy. This time of year is my favorite. Fasching is the name for carnival.

This time technically starts on the 11.11 at 11:11. From this day on, offering shows at the weekend , however the real party begins on thursday before lent. This day is called weiberfastnacht. This doesn't have a translation but on this day the women go out to party, its the women's night. There are shows with jokes against men or parties for women. In friday, in my village ,there is a show for the men as well.

In my village there is a masken ball (the ball of the 1000 masks) and on the sunday we have a parade that goes through the streets close by restaurants build up stands or villagers sell all sorts of goodies. There is a field in front of the sport hall where all the teenagers meet up. After the parade all the bars are open and offer wild parties.

On monday is rosenmontag = rose monday. In the morning you meet with friends and drink some beers and in the evening there more parties. For those who can't get enough there same is repeated on tuesday but the parties don't go as long.

These days most people are dressed up and like to drink together. The real reason for carnival is to scare the winter away with costumes and noise. However this meaning has gone but the tradition stays.

Would you like to celebrate this holiday in your  country or do your already celebrate it?

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.

After the first time your hooked!

Hello. Hallo. Hola.

After reading the tirle you might think of something inappropriate or illegal but don't worry its nothing of the sorts.

I am talking about volunteering. Now hold up before you leave this post I'm not here to promote volunteering and guilt you into doing it however I do believe you should consider it. Let me explain.

I was always the kind of person that had respect for people that volunteer. I would think "great good for them." but I didn't care much to do anything myself. Volunteering sounded like a good idea for when your in your pension.

In Spain there came a time where I was bored out of my mind I had little to no work to do and I sat all day, everyday at home. My spanisch friend were in uni and so I had nothing to do. After enduring this torture for a while I decided to volunteer. My Spanish wasn't good enough for a job and no one would of hired me for the short time.

I volunteered in an after school club for children. It was great, I felt great and it was fun and educational.

Now I am searching for a organisation here in Germany and am even considering doing it during my studies.

So if your like me and don't care much for doing volunteering and you have 2 weeks free maybe guve it a try you never know what secret skills hide with in you.

You don't feel like volunteering then how about giving the post a like and a share it would help a lot

See you next week. Bis nächste Woche. Hasta siguiente semana.
