Last week I rode my MTB across the Alps: Transalp. With 10 other "Biker" on a trip organized by http://www.dav-summit-club.de/. We started at the Bodensee in the north of Switzerland and rode across the San Bernardino pass to Locarno.6 days of "biken" with a typical "Höhenprofil" looking like this:Each night we slept in a different hotel in a different town (Appenzell, Chur, San Bernardino, etc.).The picture shows us standing above the Rhein, looking down at Lichtenstein and Vaduz.For me this was the first time that I did such an activity with Germans, so I will tell you a little about cultural differences that became obvious...The bad news is that I dropped my new Canon 400D into a canyon, destroying it and my most expensive lens .-( Good that I still have my Sony R1, a great camera with which I took many of my best fotos. Still, the Canon will have to be replaced when I find my new job and get my first salary...Lucerne, 26.08.2007Stephan WiesnerUse this free podcast to learn to speak German. http://german-podcast.blogspot.com
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
