- Jacqueline!! -

- Jacqueline, where are you? -

- Jacqueline, where are you? -

You know that Papa doesn't like to wait.

I am coming soon!

Oh no!


Jacqueline, say what are you thinking?

This stays on and comes with us or you can drive alone.

Pff, you will see what the Papa will say to this

The Papa, the papa, the papa.

I don't care what the papa will say about it.

So where is he anyway.

- At granpas' in Leipzig. -

- In Leipzig? -

- Now of all times? -

- Don't stress. That's not your thing. -

- it should be a suprise, he said -

- oh man, Udo and a surprise, eh? -

- Maybe he comes home with Granpas new car. -

- Ha, Udo without "Schorsch" -

That's like a lid without a cookie jar.

- It is about time. -

- Ah look here... -

... Everything goes automatic.

The cover, the time, the film judders automatic

So it goes out, and so it goes in.

World niveau

Ah look there. Udo and his "Schorsch" that old soapbox.

and he says:
All my freetime I was with my car.

I laid more under my old car then under my own wife.

- So it goes in and so it goes out. -

- Granpas new Japanese -

Udo, how is your Turbo?

Jacqueline, get out. Get out now.

- Oh Daddy, please not on the first day of holiday. -

- But this stays here -

Get this off! Right now!

Ok, if you think so.

Hey Udo, where will you go, if we can ask?

- Neapel. -

- What? -

Neapel? You don't even get to Leipzig.

All 4 of us will stand on the Vesuv, even if he smokes.

And on the film is the evidence.

See Neapel... and die.

I have to admit, that my journey is actually an escape.

(He recites now something of Goethe.)

Mama, look in the sidepanel and see for yourself.

"The Italian Journey" of Goethe?

That is our compass, better then any street map.

200 years old and still up to date.

- You want one Jacqueline? -

- Oh no! When I just smell it, I have the feeling to puke. -

You think we can get to Neapel with this book?

The Italian Journey of familie Strutz.

8th Stopp - Regensburg

Hehe, Uncle Bernd and Aunt Gerda will be happy.

Shut down that noise.

Mama, say also something.

- The pill is the only thing you like. -

- Yup. -

Mine are lying on the kitchen table.

Ah it doesn't matter. Go on papa,

I don't need them anyway with your stress.

How far is it to Regensburg?

- We need 2 more hours. -

- With tail wind. -

Oh such a convertible is really nice

- How fast are we? -

- Ohh...120! -

Just take care that this Papercarton doesn't

fly all over your head.

120!! "Schorsch" this is your personal best

- Shouldn't push him so hard -

- Ah, no worries. -

I have to switch the fuel petcock.

Look at the street.

Look forward!

Oh no, children.

Don't worry Udo.

We will survive also this oxygen.

Your sister!

I knew it...

that someday they will stand in front of our doors,

those people from Saxony.

And all their club.

He looks like a turkish carevan.

Alphones, clean the table.


(Some weird poem of Saxony.)

Oh, that you still know it.

Come, get in!

Oh look here.

There sit down.

You have a nice wall unit

We didn't get something like this

so easy back then.

9859 Mark incl. Vat

In principe, almost for free.

What can I get you now?

There you go. Eat plenty.

Gerda, that wasn't necessary.

So Udo, you still the successful German teacher

on the path of Goethe?

Yup, and now we are driving after him to Neapel.

Was Goethe also in Regensburg?

Regensburg, 5th of September 1786

(he quotes from the travelbook of Goethe)

The morning was cool and air was fresh.

But the day got nicer

The fruits are not the best.

I look forward to the wife and figs.
