Going to Hawaii – yay!

I'm going to Hawaii

So things are starting to get in place now for this years holiday and boy, am I looking forward to this one! Today the ticket finally arrived as you see.

The trip has been in the works for the past year since Fernando got a job as an engineer in Hawaii. Ever since then the big goal has been to make a trip over to visit him with the gang.
Luckily we have managed to get five of the guys together for this awesome holiday.

Today we have been laying out the plans for what we are going to do. Good times. We were sitting in four different time zones and making the plan in Google Spreadsheet. Fernando sitting on Hawaii, Ivan in Minneapolis, Alberto in Tennessee, and Femi and me in Prague. The plans include a trip to Na Pali Coast, Volcanoes NP and camping on The Big Island.

Its going to be good times with good people :)

Karlv most – 650 years today

Charles Bridge (again)

Today is the 650th birthday of Charles Bridge – the first bridge in Prague to cross the Vltava river.

The foundation stone was laid at 5:31am on July 9, 1357 with the help of king Charles IV. He consulted his astrologers and the date and time were chosen so that the odd numbers that ascend and descend on the scale of 1 – 9 would form the palindrome 135797531.My Czech Republic

Charles bridge is probably the most photographed spot in Prague – there is something magical about this bridge. Ive already taken ten pictures of it and Flickr reports that its users has tagged 24,914 pictures of the bridge.
