Jan 16, 2014 - Singapore

Weather here in Singapore in unseasonably cool of only about 24 to 26 degrees. We have been so lucky weather wise wherever we have been. Today it was visiting the Marina Bay areas of shopping centres and mainly the Singapore Gardens of Wonder with its spectacular Domes, Supertrees and collection of exotic plants from around the world.

Jan 15, 2014 - Frankfurt to Singapore

Travelled overnight and with the turning on the clock by 7 hours, most of the day was gone by the time we arrived at Singapore. Checked into the beautiful Pan Pacific which included free drinks and nibbles in the Executive Club which we fully utilised for the first couple of hours before going down to Boat Quay to choose from all the restaurants with each trying to endure us by offering free drinks. We ended up selecting a seafood restaurant which offered us four free drinks each. Whereas Alex and Pam enjoyed their meal, Steve wasn't happy...

Jan 14, 2014 - Munich to Frankfurt and the heading for Singapore

Last day in Europe (so sad) and finally on the very last day initial light rain turned to snow rain and then finally, at long last snow. Steve and Desley went to Dachau Concentration Camp. Alex and Pam have been previously and therefore decided to go to the BMW car works/plant. Incredibly interesting. Went on a two and a half hour tour of the plant watching every facet of putting a car together. We could have watched the robots working for ages especially in the painting. I have put in an order for both Tom's and Bobbette's new BMWs. Sadly...

Dec 7, 2013 - Army base and Christmas Market in Wiesbaden

Tino, Karen and us went to Wiesbaden to register for a Christmas Trip to Italy. It was nice to go onto an American Base and explore the many American shops and eat the food- we had Taco Bell! We then went into the old town to explore the Christmas market. It was very cute- as they all are and had different things than at the Frankfurt Christmas Market (which we went to about 3-4 times a week). We ate dinner at a pizza place which started a mini tradition for the four of us- we seemed to gravitate towards pizza joints. We even ate pizza in...

Nov 27, 2013 - NJ to Frankfurt to Delhi

Sunny and cold in Frankfurt, where I waited 4 hours for the flight to Delhi. Arrived in Delhi in the wee hours of the morning. A few unexpected turns, but that's to be expected when traveling to India. My plane was filled with Indians, so I got a good preview of joyful and communal interactions. Even the babies cried in unison! Definitely group culture, and people looking out for each other. Our plane was two hours late arriving in Delhi, so my prearranged ride was nowhere to be found. I had read in a guide about prepay taxis, so off I...

Nov 17, 2013 - Frankfurt Flughafen

I was really sad last night after the news about Ian, I raised a glass of Kolsh, 9Koln beer) to him Its homeward today, flying back from Frankfurt, and a trip down the High Speed Line, from Koln to the Airport. this line was not even thought off last time I was over this way. The train I am on (ICE3)(see picture has seating behind the driving cab, and if the driver is not shy he does not black the windows out. My driver today was not shy, so like a excited schoolboy I was behind the cab and watching the train thunder down the line at 186mph...

Nov 3, 2013 - Frankfurt on Foot Tour

We decided to go back and take the walking tour. This tour was on foot and it took through the old town around Frankfurt. It was about a 3 to 4 hour tour. We really enjoyed the tour. The guide told us a lot about Frankfurt and history and it was very interesting. It was nice because we got to find out a little bit of the history and if something was interesting we could go back and learn more. We were joined on the tour by another couple from Phoenix, AZ and another man. After the tour ended we invited the couple from Phoenix to go to lunch...
