Today we reached another mile stone: people from 121 140 different countries have visited our Blog!
If you think that is almost the whole world (as I initially did) you are wrong. There are still 120 101 ‘missing countries’ on the counter. But we are over half the countries now! Wouldn’t it be great if we could manage to have our blog opened in all countries all over the world?
Luka and I were standing on the train platform in Sydney Central, five km away from the consulate when we heard the announcement ” the next three trains will terminate at this station”.

Now that is interesting, even if you do not like statistics, right? Continue reading “Update: Social media challenge”→
“Why are the waiting times so long for your customer service?” I ask the lady on the other end of the line. Her response:”Because people ask all these extra, unnecessary questions” would not have won any awards in client service.

It’s still dark outside and the clock is not yet showing a 6 when I am woken up by an alarm going off.
