October 2003
USA trip + LWE in Frankfurt (already mentioned)

November 2003
Again there're the LinuxDays in Luxembourg. Unfortunately, there were just a few visitors. Our stand was quite empty. I was wondering why my girlfriend joined me...just after one week (regarding that I knew her since October 31th). Anyway, it was quite nice to see some friends again. On Saturday evening we went to the cinema with Martin Baulig and watched Matrix Revolution. Impressive movie, but there hardly isn't any story at all. Natalie and I stayed at Martin's flat for the night. We're sleeping on the floor, not very pleasant but it worked somehow.
The next day Martin guided as through Trier; it's the oldest city in Germany and thus quite amazing.
In the evening we went home again (by train). I can't remember when we arrived but it must have been quite late. Natalie stayed at my place for the night and the next day because she didn't had to work on Monday.
One week later I was on the next event. This time the LinuxDay in Vorarlberg/Austria. It's been pleasent as always except the night: I had to sleep in the same room as Kurl Pfeifle (KDE guy working for danka, CUPS and NX freak ;-), Harald K├Ânig (XFree86/xorg guy) and Klaus Knopper (knoppix). They snored like hell and I finally moved to another room -- much better there :-)

December 2003
I had to go to the doctor because for some reason I had an abscess. I think it was on December 9th in the evening (around 5 pm) when he removed the little bastard (the thing was really awkward and hurt quite a lot; I was relieved the day when it was cut out). The bad thing about it was, that I couldn't write a test 4 days later. The doctor gave me lots of tablets that helped me to endure the pain after the surgery. I somehow survived... ;-)
From December 27th to January 3rd, Natalie and I went to Berlin. We were living in a nice apartment in Berlin-Spandau (it's in the north eastern part of the city). Berlin's been always one of my most favorite cities. I will upload the photos soon, just haven't had the time ;-)
I forgot, we watched Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King in the Sony Center. The movie rocks!
Just after New Year, my mom called me and said that my grandmother had an apoplectic stroke -- what a shock! Anyway, the week was pleasant and quite cheap. I liked that :-)
