My name is Kevin Pfeiffer. I found Travellerspoint while looking for listing resources for our little B & B guest apartment. The clean, light quality layout and of course the subject matter hooked me as a member as well. My wife and I live in a loft apartment in a renovated yarn factory.

I must admit that every year I have less desire to travel (by plane, at least), but warm, dry weather and good roads can lure me onto a bicycle most anywhere, especially a nice, light road bike.

All the best,

Kevin Pfeiffer

Hi Kevin!

Welcome to TP!

Ooohh, living above an old yarn factory sounds interesting. Does it still smell of wool once in awhile - or maybe the dyes??

Since you are running a B&B, these links might be of interest to you...

-snip-

You may have seen these pasges already - but if not, take a look.

Having not traveled much (especially outside of the continental US), it doesn't take much to get me on a plane! Since Beerman and I have joined TP - I feel like a novice at 53! Though, I must admit, I'm not a backpacker...

Anyway, welcome to TP and see you in the forums! ;)

No yarn smells left (just as well, I think), only the high ceilings and a beautiful Jugendstil (German art nouveau) ceramic brick exterior in cream and a red-brown. I'll add a snapshot to my photo library here -- funny thing is I have an old tie from my father with almost the same colors and pattern.

You may not yet have travelled much, but judging from the number of postings you seem to be a master correspondent. :) Thanks for the links.

Hello Kevin,
Translator for Germans?
-Jennifer-

Yes. BTW, how did you get your name into the little column on the left? Mine shows only my username, which is not so great (since I prefer to be called "Kevin" or "Kevin Pfeiffer", but not "pfeiffer" -- unless it's "Mister..." :)).

And what does the next "Jennifer G" do? Hmpf, bad software that asks you for a user name and then proceeds to use it as your screen name (which is then seemingly not modifiable).

Good thing I didn't pick something like "wombat".

- "Pfeiffer"

Guten Tag Kevin, und willkommen in TP.

It could be worse. You could have picked a username like "MikeyBoab".

Hope to see you around the forums. Perhaps you can bring some of that German efficiency with you.

Regards,
Michael

Looking forward to seeing the picture(s)!!!!

Actually - like Michael - most of that post count came from playing over in the Off Topic forum. Posts in that forum do not count when it comes to promotions but it is fun. (Mikey is now working at being the first Budding Member with 3000 posts.)

Beerman and I tend to travel vicariously via TP members and their adventures. Though, we do find questions in the forums where we know an answer or two. ;)

Oh, and you are most welcome concerning the links. I thought they may be of use to you.
