I got great feedback from my german readers for the international edition. Thank you 🙂 But I think it’s more for the idea than for the entries – there are just three english entries… so stay tuned for more entries 🙂 But actually I want to tell you how I got the idea to make an international edition. It’s not a garage-story, but an „Autobahn“-story. So read
Do you remember Ivan? The huge hurricane, that hit Florida last fall? It was the third hurricane on it’s way to florida within two month. And we wanted to go to florida last fall to spend our vacation there – and to meet friends, too. Ivans and our estimated date of arrival has been the same. Great, isn’t it? It wasn’t possible to fly. Okay, the last hurricane-season has been harder for the people in florida than for us not to spend our vacation there. But I was very sad. The week before I actually watched cnn around the clock to get the latest ivan-updates and weather-forecasts. When I couldn’t see tv, I used the cnn online coverage. It was gread. I became a huge fan. A real cnn-addicted person. I enjoyed the international edition and Hala Gorani’s purse adventure.
I don’t have to tell you how sad it was to cancel finally the flight to Florida. Especially Joc in Florida was sad. She took the next best flight to germany to meet Dominic again. We picked her up at Frankfurt Airport, that is almost 3 hours from Münster away. On the way home, we talked about cnn, my blog etc. She said, that she couldn’t understand my blog, even she checked it and saw the Ivan-Traceroute-Picture. „Okay, than let me do an international edition, that you can read it too“, I told her. „No way, Daniel! You just watched to much CNN, the last weeks.“ I agreed and we didn’t talk furhter about it. But I actually started to think about the advantages of an english blog. Because I could fill a whole book of good reasons, I told myself „I’ve got to make it. When I open the international edition, I don’t have to think and find new reaseons to start it.“ So here it is… just because an stupid idea on a german „Autobahn“, because of Ivan, because of cnn or because Hala Gorani.
