I'm currently coming to you live from an internet cafe in Karlsruhe. Just letting you all know that I am alive and I will spam you all with updates when I get back home, but you have just over a week still free from yours truly!
The easiest way to track my progress, and get some rather amusing comments, is by following me on Twitter. You don't even need to be a user there to follow. Race wise, in short, it was COMPLETELY FREAKING AWESOME watching Lewis lapped, overtaken etc (I got confused when each happened cause I couldn't remember everyones positions haha) by almost everyone, right in front of me. Bahaha.
Also, as I've just had this conversation with loveberlinxo on meebo, I'll share it here too:
[10:16] Samantha: meet any drivers?
[10:16] Bekki: nope, not reallz
[10:16] Bekki: almost literallz accidentally walked into heikki
[10:16] Bekki: but that was it
[10:16] Samantha: lol german keyboard
[10:16] Bekki: oh and lucas di grassi walked past me
[10:17] Bekki: yes. im learning. the other letters are in the same place other than y and z
[10:17] Samantha: how did you almost walk into heikki?
[10:18] Bekki: well...
[10:18] Bekki: it would be easier with a map but still lets try
[10:18] Bekki: there is a path around most of the circuit
[10:19] Samantha: right
[10:19] Bekki: i came up the path and ended up by the merc grandstand, where mel and steffi were
[10:19] Bekki: at the mo the path is a dirt track cause theyre still doing building work
[10:19] Samantha: yeah
[10:20] Bekki: anyway
[10:20] Bekki: i came up there walking the opposite way to others who wanted to go down
[10:20] Bekki: then stood there for a couple of seconds wondering whether the others would be comig down for some lunch
[10:21] Bekki: when i suddenly had people around me
[10:21] Bekki: not a lot but a few
[10:21] Bekki: then there were people going 'can i have your autograph?'
[10:21] Samantha: oh shiz
[10:21] Bekki: i figured they didnt want mine so moved out the way
[10:21] Samantha: hahaha
[10:22] Bekki: basically when i looked back, i saw a small group of people
[10:22] Bekki: then i saw heikki and the mclaren people going 'he needs to go'
[10:22] Bekki: essentially id probably been about 1 inch away from heikki without knowing!
[10:22] Samantha: i always imagined heikki would literally look like a little ray of sun shine in real life. does he?
[10:23] Bekki: awww
[10:23] Bekki: he is a little bit like that
[10:23] Samantha: thats cute
[10:23] Bekki: but in the mclaren stuff and surrounded by mclaren people he looked small
[10:23] Bekki: he looked happier and brighter at renault when i met him last time
[10:24] Samantha: yeah, thats kinda sad when drivers are happier racing for renault than mclaren
Will tell all about our lovely and completely awesome banner later, when I can post pics too and I can wax lyrical about the amusing conversation with the mechanic I spoke to. Also, the Robert Kubica song, the Vettel Mania song and much more will be revealed... hehe.
Can't remember what else I was going to say now! Oh well
I'll probably stay in here a while and kill time so I don't end up going shopping. Karlsruhe is nice, but it makes me want to shop... I don't like shopping much normally and I also have a weight limit for my case! Will probably head back up into the city centre later and get some shots of the castle, if it dries up. If not, I don't know. Just need to work out if I do that before or after lunch... not that I'm hungry yet!
Anyhoo, talk to you all soon. Watch my progress on Twitter, come talk to me online for a bit or text me :)
