The Loooooong Easter weekend

As most of you realize, it’s Easter weekend around the world. We’ve got 4 days off here. Unlike the U.S. everything was closed yesterday and it will be again on Sunday and Monday. Therefore, it requires preplanning to make sure that we have enough food and drink in the house.

Some good friends (Nikki & Aaron) sent us the care package laid out in the photo above. It came Thursday before the long weekend. In it we found Mexican spices and candy also some Peeps, Girl Scout cookies and some Keebler cookies. To make it all that much better there was also come coffee beens to feed my coffee jones. All we can say is… THANK YOU GUYS!!

Yesterday, we went to a 2 hour spin class that included a fair amount of weight work. This morning I felt like I’d been riding a horse for 100 miles. Kera’s been doing a lot in the mornings in regards to spin class and a Monday weight class, so she wasn’t nearly as sore. There’s a reason that I call here “Tough Girl.”

We’re off to dinner with friends tonight and we’ll probably do something with some other friends tomorrow night. That still leaves a whole day on Monday to relax.

The last two things…

Kera’s foot.

My new uniforms.

What does one say here. Hmmm. First, I'm a "trailing spouse". Kera, my wife, works hard and keeps us afloat. I work... not nearly as hard and contribute enough to let us have fun. Oh, I also make bags for bikepacking under the name of SpoK Werks I'm an English Teacher (English as a Second Language) here in Germany. It's an amazingly rewarding thing to do. I'd never have believed it until I'd tried it. I also make bikepacking bags under the name SpoK Bags. Just search for us in Flickr. We're adventure nuts (i.e. cycling, travel, life, friends, etc.). We attempt to live each day as fully as we can manage.

  1. Hey Kera, nice tat!

    Peeps, gotta love that in your care package. 🙂 It was such a nicely color coordinated gift set too! I’m loving the new kits, how about you?

  2. Hope you stocked up Einbecker Mai-Bock and trinken Ihr unter dem Tisch!

    Actually, you can get it here in the states now but I don’t think it really tastes the same.

    Do the Germans have anything equivalent to saying Happy Easter?

  3. Love the new kits too. They’re way colorful, better designed than before and much more comfortable.

    Oh…. Happy Easter is…. Fröhliche Ă–stern. German beer/Bier only tastes the same here. Partly due to the alcohol content and partly because it takes so long to reach that States that it’s basically not any longer fresh.

  4. Hey, wunspeed happy Easter. Love the different colors on each leg of the shorts. Who did your team kit? I’m currently working a design and shopping around. Oh, and that tat had to hurt like hell.

  5. Hey man, you do realize that in that picture of your new kit, it looks like you race for “Blow Me Racing,” don’t you?

    Just thought I’d share that.
