Beijing, Seoul - and OTN Tour Tokyo - just in one week

Uhhh ... next week will be a tough traveling experience. 19870 km (12347 mi), all in cattle class on 4 different airlines.

Picture rights remain at The New York Times

I tried to avoid Lufthansa as they canceled recently flights I heavily relied on - with no reason! And there's still a huge risk of announcing just their 9th strike within a year and a bit.

But I'm really looking forward to the workshops, to see all the colleagues, customers and of course some great friends. Roy and I will do two internal two-day workshops in Beijing and Seoul with each more than 50 participants - and we'll include a nice hands-on-experience as well. And mid-week I'll head out to Tokyo to present at the DB TECH SHOWCASE 2014 - which is part of the OTN ACE Tour.

CU soon - thanks!!!

Thank You for flying with "Hello Kitty" ;-)

Yesterday Roy and I flew directly after the workshop in Seoul to Taipeh in Taiwan. It's our first time in Taiwan - and the flight to Taipeh with EVA Airlines was quite surprising ;-) I didn't took a picture in the bathroom ... 

"Thank You for flying with Hello Kitty!".

Some impressions from Seoul and Beijing

There was not much time left to walk around and take some pictures during our fully packed workshop week in Seoul and Beijing. But as I have my camera almost always in my pocket I took some pictures ... :-)


Seoul View


Seoul Food ... yes ... BEEF ... wonderfully thin sliced beef on the barbecue grid


Tumbling Seoul
(that's exactly how I felt in the mornung after our night at Peter, Paul and Mary's (see below)).


Modern Beijing ... very modern


Well ... or even more modern ...


There's always a traffic jam ... simply too many cars ... and some bycicles left as well


And if you don't know where to park your Lambo... no prob ... just park it in the middle of two pedestrian crosswalks on an intersection ... if you drive the right car policemen will simply ignore your intersting habbits ;-)
