Fire Alarm

A few days ago I was just taking a shower when the fire alarm was set off. Anke came in and told me that everybody appears to be leaving the building (although no fire, smoke or anything similar could be detected from our apartment).

So I stepped out of the shower, threw on some pants and packed everything valuable within less than a minute: My laptop and a hard drive, my phone, iPad, the JamBox, my passport and credit cards – done.

We left the building with everything really important on us. I carried a small daypack weighing about 2-3 kg.
Seeing me a minute later on the motorbike, you would never have suspected what just happened.

I really enjoy how little I own.
