You're right to stay away from Germany right now as far as you could, Leif.



Compared to some eras in Germany, it's quite "warm" here in Vienna. We only had minus 10 degrees this morning.

Btw, nice pictures of SF. I've always wanted to go there.

Chicago is about the same as here, windier, but often warmer and not as much snow. It was 64 in Chicago over Christmas!

Thanks, I've got enough for the season. Chicago is nice, but nicer in summer time.

Back home it's always extremely cold. Though it might be in the twenties it rather feels like being in the single digits because of the wet air and the Siberian wind. I'm really not looking forward to it.

It's awesome. And you will feel right home with all the steep hills.
-10°, nice.

I'm sure it's very cold where you live right now.
Thanks!

yeah, it's freakin cold and very chaotic at the moment. We have 20cm snow since monday, I mean we never ever have snow...weird!

In Berlin it's the same. (or even worse). I think the northern and southern parts have normal winter weather.
When do you plan to comeback? And, btw, I thought you went to the US for studying...Chicago, SF...sounds like fun!

I heard those low temperatures in Germany on the news yesterday. Here in Holland it's a little bit better I guess, except for me as I get cold pretty quickly

Great pics of San Francisco though Leif! I really still need to visit America some day...

Oh man, in the summer it's 90s and humid!! When I went to a U2 show in Chicago in September it was 93 degrees (34C).

SF looks beautiful. I'd love to go to norther Cali (all over not just SF). Might be a bit to mild for me to live there (I like it HOT and humid).

20cm. ouch.

I don't plan to come back, I have to. My visa expires. I will be back next Monday. Flying all Sunday and arriving in Hamburg at 1.15pm.
I did study for a semester. The visa allows you to stay for 30 days prior and after your studies, so I did some travelling. Chicago, New York and San Francisco. A great fun trip, but time flies by so fast.

Back home the temperatures are in the plus, but it always feels about 20 degrees lower.

Next time I will be back in summer. Definitely.

SF around this time is nice. Today was very sunny. Our tour guide said it was the best day in two months. The previous days it was always foggy and you couldn't see far. Summer in SF is even more foggy. Best time is around Indian Summer he said.

I prefer mild to warm temperatures, but loving Australia I can get used to hot.
If I had more time and money I would rent a car and do a trip just around SF and up to Yosemite.

Thank you. I was a little confused as I knew from the video that there was this highway bridge going right by the site which wasn't there now. But it's a nice place.
Only one day left here.

In the south of Austria there are about 2 m of snow in the valley, up to 3 m in the mountains. Great skiing conditions, especially with the blue skies and mild temperatures right now.

I forgot that you need a visa!
You're lucky that you fly home this monday, cause last week it was very chaotic at the airports...

That sounds wonderful Silvia!!!
Linda and me, we love skiing so much, but we don't have the money/time to come over. We went to a indoor skiing venue last year and, well, if you have been skiing outdoors before, you appreciate that.

Skiing. Need to go so dearly.

Chicago might be a little chaotic, but that should be okay. I hope this time there is no delays.

I could leave the country for a day and re-enter as a tourist for another three months. But well, money doesn't grow on trees, now does it?
