We, that is Nina, Dirk, my cousin Basti and I, spontaneously went to “Phantasialand” yesterday – it’s an amusement park here in Germany.
I have some fond memories of this place. My sister and I used to go there a lot when we were kids. My Grandad and my great-aunt took us there once a year [my Grandma died when I was six and therefore my great-aunt kind of took her place]. We loved it :) It always was something special for us.
My sister was all crazy about the rollercoasters and crazy rides. I enjoyed the set up, the beautiful figures and costumes, and the whole atmosphere much more.
It was fun to go there again!
I actually went on two rollercoasters, one of which did a 360… I was screaming my lungs out :) I usually chicken out of rides like that. I enjoy the “log” ride and stuff like that more. This is “crazy” enough for me ;)
We really had a fun day though and I am glad that I was able to have that special time with my sister and my cousin before I leave in a few weeks!
In the evening, I went over to my friend Ira’s and we watched “Brokeback Mountain“. I had been dying to see that movie and I loved it! It was really touching! I can see why it was nominated for the “Academy Awards”. Even more than director Ang Lee for making this highly controversial movie, I admire Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger for their acting skills and moving performances. I also admire them for their courage as heterosexual actors to portray this story of two homosexual men and their unique love story.
Have you seen it? You should!
