A week in London

After almost a year I finally had time to go back to London, always a great pleasure. I stayed with my oldest friend Cindy and her boo, which allowed me perfect access to the city. Met up with several friends, took in the culture (most notably Greenwich and a Sherlock Holmes exhibition at the Museum […]

Hello from Scotland!

Maerrie and I are enjoying ourselves enormously – we rented a very nice car in Liverpool and drove up North through the Lake Country. On our journey so far we've seen castles, ruins, vast landscapes, impressive coastlines – and even men in kilts. 🙂 Stopping points have been Kendal (at the entrance of beautiful Cumbria), […]

Some pics from London

I've scanned some of the pics I took – not a lot of tourist sights, as we did them in 98 and didn't bother taking the same pics yet again…. Sibylle has also taken some, which are not yet developped, but I thought I'd go ahead and post some of mine anyway. Me in the […]

London report

Well, I'm back home again after five great days in London. Not everything went the way we planned or imagined it, but all in all we had a good time! One thing first – London is incredibly expensive! Suddenly Switzerland doesn't seem all that bad… *g* We spent a lot of time walking around, seeing […]

I'm as good as gone!

We have to get up at 4.30 tomorrow morning – argh! Anyway, we'll be staying neither at Rolly's nor Jan's place but with Sibylle's boyfriend's cousin… A woman who doesn't know us but who's ready to take us in with only 24 hours notice! I already like her! *g* We'll put our luggage into storage […]

Complicated

Why can my London trip not simply go the way I want it to? Finally managed to reach Rolly (via email) and found out that he's now expecting people on Thursday. Which of course makes things a lot more complicated for us – now we have to try get a hold of Jan, a German […]

London update

Sibylle's and my planned trip to London might finally work out! Unfortunately Rolly (guy I met in Namibia) is expecting visitors on Monday, June 17, so that we have to leave already next Wednesday instead of Friday. That makes finding a reasonably priced flight difficult – it's too late for EasyJet, so we have to […]

Interrail, Summer 1998

With seventeen me and Sibylle went up to Britain and all around the island by train – and in a tiny tent, despite the mostly very cold and rainy weather… Home, sweet tent… on a day when the weather was decent for a change! *g* (The weird shape comes from this pic being a part […]
