Cruising back home

…continuing with, Let’s talk travel We took a night train as planned from Copenhagen and arrived in Stockholm in the early hours of the morning and started scratching our heads, err…what do we do in the meantime whilst waiting for the ferry back home which departs in the evening?  Nothing new about Stockholm, we visit here quite…

Travel Theme: Sunset

I love seasons here because they are so defined and different. I’m again doing the theme according to seasons. Autumn The very first sunset I saw in Finland. On my very first trip visiting here to meet my future-in-laws. The weather was dull and grey most of the time and when I saw this sunset,…

Lykkelig?

But now let’s continue with travel… Before we reached the final town in Germany, Puttgarden we got a visit from German Customs Control.

Travel Theme: Signs

Whilst I’m lugging myself and threading carefully up to the top on a chain ladder, I must still be placing falling rocks on a safe place? Another sign on a hiking trail, Castle Gorge, Magasliesberg. Happily following the…

We were introduced…

Travel Theme: Leading Lines

Wow! I’ve seen some really awesome leading lines posted on the theme and I debated whether to participate or not as I don’t have anything spectatular from travels, but I’ll give it a try Summer – long road in the middle of the forest   Early autumn – track in the forest leading to a swamp,…

Prague by Night

Phew! we’ve been having such storms here disrupting the internet connection, I’m only now trying to catch up with the happenings in blogville.
