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,...

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...

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...

Oct 27, 2013 - Tour Frankfurt

Today we went in to Frankfurt to take a tour. We needed to meet by Starbucks, so we were there 5 minutes early and no one was there for the tour. We waited for 10 minutes and decided to just walk around Frankfurt by ourselves. We came across a boat tour on the AM Main River that goes though Frankfurt. When we booked the tour for the boat we found out why the tour by Starbucks wasn't there- Germany has Summer and Winter hours or we know it daylight savings time. We were 1 hour early for the Starbucks tour but since we booked the boat tour we...

Oct 20, 2013 - Moved to Schawanheim- Apartment is ready

Moved in to a temporary room at the apartment building (house). We lived here in the room for one week then moved into the apartment style rooms once one of the roommates moved out. Once we were able to move into the second bedroom in the house we had our private bedroom and private on suite bathroom. We shared the kitchen and living space (which are one in the same) with two other female roommates- Fredericka and Nina. The first bedroom we stayed in at the apartment was a bedroom/bathroom- no kitchen. We again lived on mostly supermarket...
