I'll go offline now and don't know how much I'll be online in the couple of days/weeks. Tomorrow I'll get my new house, so I'll be busy. I'll still try to login once a day, but I'm not sure if I'll succeed.

Good luck with the big move! I'll lift all the heavy stuff in spirit...

I probably shouldn't be posting this here, because I'll probably be online tomorrow evening. I managed to be online every day since I got my new house, so no big changes. I was just a little bit less active.

Tomorrow I'll be moving for real. I won't be moving Knaldskalle-style, because it's only 2.5 km from one house to the other. ^_^
Today the internet-connection was set up, so I won't be offline for several weeks like he was. :tongue:

In Europe there is no idea of distance not like in USA and other large countries. How much is USA does not have good internet service outside major cities? What is life like in more remote rural areas?

True, but even for Dutch standards this is a very small distance to be moving.

But it can be even less. A few months ago one of my neighbors moved about 300 meters, just one street further. I think they even didn't use a car, but just put the furniture on trolleys.

We're moving into our new house tomorrow and the internet won't be connected til Wednesday next week, so I probably won't be on here much until then coz I need to save mobile data lol.

No, Kiev is a busstation in Romania. Doesn't look like an interesting place to go on a holiday. :shrug:

This has not been a good week for watching movies, but it HAS been a great week for writing poetry, so I'm hanging out elsewhere online for the nonce. Be back when I feel like it.

I'll be offline for the next two days. Just on a short trip with my wife and kids.

EDIT: Knowing myself, I'll still be online tomorrow morning, because we won't be leaving right after breakfast......

Hey guys!

This may be a little late, since I haven't really been around since early january, but I won't be dropping by for the next couple of months... Things are crazy right now, with my moving to Mexico and all.

Despite my best efforts, I miss you already ;) :hug:
