The 90th birthday …

… but not of Miss Sophie but my Dad, so we traveled to Bournemouth for the first of two parties. My Dad got the red carpet treatment with 50 guests to help him celebrate his great day … but after the party is before the party and we’ll be celebrating again in Germany in four weeks! By the way, he started the day with an early morning swim!

Liz seems to be a fan of Stuttgart and now Nürtingen. We had a nice weekend there, visited my elder son and realized how beautiful the area around the the Aileswasensee (belongs to Neckatailfingen) is.

A perk of the job :-)

I had a very inspiring two days in Hamburg with a client of mine at their annual strategy meeting. My presentation on ‘Decency’ went down very well and most of the Hamburg people were pretty decent – particularly the passenger on the underground who walked me to our amazing 25hours Hotel. It was really interesting to visit Grüner & Jahr, listen to inspiring talks by the CEO, Julia Jäkel and the Chief Editor of the Stern, and learn all about info snacking (on the smartphone) and deep diving (on the sofa) 😊.
