Raison D’etre

I am a guy with a passion for cigars, the good life, travel and friends and I’m retired.

I live in a small village in central Germany.

I maintain this blog for my own amusement and to share my experiences in the context of cigars.

Why do I keep this blog ? – Because I have the time and the interest.

I don’t expect you to like or to agree with everything in this blog.

If you don’t like it, you’re free to go.

I’m not running a popularity contest.

A couple of other things :
I smoke ( mostly Cuban ) cigars. I drink alcohol. I’m not a vegetarian. I might also use coarse language.

Science tells us that for every action, there is a reaction, equal and opposite.

So if what I do is politically incorrect to you, all I will say is that you are entitled to your own opinions.

I thank you in advance for keeping your own opinions to yourself.

NOTE: The photographs on this blog, unless otherwise noted, are mine.

I do not steal pictures. But I have seen my photographs appearing all over the place without attribution or acknowledgement of my copyright – they are still MY photographs.

Of course, I am flattered that people like my photographs, but all content of this blog is copyrighted and the very least that can be done is to credit my images when they’re used.



Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. – Theodor Seuss Geisel
