Dresden


Original YT playout date: 24 May 2009
Duration: 43:02

This film is the first in a new era, after joining Baker Tilly and setting up in the Czech Republic. We are going to the Czech Republic, also Dresden to meet the team, as well as meet the German Baker Tillians who have lots of work for the Czech firm. Or so they claimed. This Dresden film went up before any of my 100+ Prague Vlogs, to follow.

 

I think it’s quite appropriate that I am moving into showing this new era, the second third, if you like, of my YouTube content, in this new decade. Some people call it the new decade from last year, when 2019 becomes 2020, others say that there was no year zero therefore year 1 to year 10 was the first decade. OK, when it’s 2019 I like to maximise my motivation then, and when it’s the end of 2020 I like to maximise my emotion now. I have more reasons, which I will not rehearse here, to say that I like the 2020 end and 2021 start decade theory. It all goes back to what I was doing at midnight on 31st December 2000, and a decision I made then which I am very happy I made. I didn’t cross the Elba that night, but I did cross three important rivers – the Vistula, the Odra and the personal Rubicon.

“A trip to Dresden on the train from Prague, through beautiful scenery in the Elba (Laba) valley (not the Moldava as stated – that veers off earlier, I’m informed) and a walk around some of the excellent sights to be found there.

Able was I, ere I saw Elbe, but I grow strong in the presence of beauty!”
