It is hard to be­lieve that sum­mer is here once again, es­pe­cially one that is so hot and sunny for days on end. All win­ter I wait for this kind of weather, but it is not un­til this year that I have been able to ex­pe­ri­ence it here in Van­cou­ver at this level.

Of course, we also have the draw­backs to this weather - low wa­ter lev­els, for­est firests, smoky air and sun­burn, but to me it is still worth it.

In the sum­mer, most Ger­man or­ga­ni­za­tions take some time off and Ger­mans spend it ei­ther in Europe or trav­el­ling around our beau­ti­ful western prov­inces - Rocky Moun­tains, Tofino, Banff, Sechelt, Camp­bell River are all des­ti­na­tions that have been men­tioned on Face­book re­cently. Not to men­tion Palm Springs, San Diego, Ore­gon Coast or Dis­ney­land.

What­ever you are up to this sum­mer, I would ap­pre­ci­ate pic­tures for Face­book, sto­ries for my blog, in­ter­views for my mag­a­zine and in­ter­est­ing tid­bits to share on Twit­ter!

What­ever you do, I hope you have a sum­mer of ad­ven­tures & fun - Viel Spass! Elke
