Jun 23, 2014 - Destination, not the Journey

It is unbelievable that we were somehow able to get ourselves and, as far as we know, all of our luggage packed in time to leave for the airport at 7:15 am. We finished the school year with all of its stresses and challenges last Monday, went camping for four days, prepared the house and hosted Izabella's birthday party on Saturday, cleaned the house and packed for Europe on Sunday. All in a week's time! I am surprised we managed to keep our sanity for it was definitely a whirlwind week. I think the first time we actually had a moment to...

Jun 11, 2014 - Heidelberg & Frankfort

Our house swap included cars and cell phones! Today we drove Michaela's car..oops I mean Lukas drove and I tried to interpret the GPS in German. Our first stop was Heidelberg's Altsadt (downtown). We walked up the very busy pedestrian only street (Hauptstrasse) to eat some lunch at a wonderful bar restaurant with authentic German food! I enjoyed my 1st Heidelberger beer, schnitzel and spetzel served with a creamy mushroom sauce! We walked into the Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Spirit) and looked around. It is a late-Gothic structure...

Jun 5, 2014 - Frankfurt

We're ready to come home. I need to do laundry, i don't want any more restaurant food and being around people is exhausting! Anywho. We packed up,started driving, crossed the Rhine, went into Wiesbaden for middle eastern lunch- tabbouleh / salads/ lamb, and made it to Frankfurt. We've loved being here but coming into a Sheraton that has normal North American style beds ( ie comfy not brick like and pillows with volume that stays when you out your head on it) is heaven. Jason and I went to the gym, I went up for a hot bath as everywhere...

May 12, 2014 - Day 40 – Monday 12 May – Mainz to Frankfurt

We had a fairly quiet and easy morning today getting up a bit later and strolling out to find a simple breakfast. A few blocks away was a standalone glass enclosed café on an intersection which hit the spot. We then took a bit of extra time packing our bags as this would be the last time we needed them until final preparation for check-in to Brisbane. We took a taxi to Mainz train station since the weather was a bit ominous. While waiting for the next train to Frankfurt we noticed the number of police dressed in full riot gear was...

Apr 22, 2014 - On to Frankfurt

This morning we spent talking to Nan and Graeme. After lunch Nan took us to Edinburgh Airport. Saying "Goodbye" is always painful, possibly more so for Nan than us, but this time we have the comfort of knowing we will meet again in August when she will visit us. We joined the line for the check in at Ryanair, a cut-price airline reputed to have more planes in Europe than any other airline. We dropped our bags without incident - always pays to read the fine print! We proceeded through security where my bag of computers, cameras, chargers,...

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...

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...
