Sitting at Munich Airport

London? Been there done that. We visited Big Ben, the Westminster Chapel and Minstry, the Kew Gardens, Buckingham Palace (saw the changing of the guards)and took a ride on the London Eye. The most notable thing about London for us was the cost of everything. It´s so very expensive.

We had a delightful time at Reeth, a lovely country town outside Leeds, and stayed at Leeds for a couple of days with friends. During our stay we visited York and soaked up a heap of the history.

Anyway, we have arrived back at Munich, from where we set out from Dubai several weeks ago and travel by train to Oberstaufen in the morning where we spend a week at our timeshare. The week after we move to Mitterfels for another week in a timeshare and then back to the UAE ... and work.

We are having a good time and enjoying the sites, although it´s been hard on the feet.

We will attach some photos to our nex post, so watch this place.

Best wishes

Today We Leave Brussels

Today we are departing Brussels after a three day stay.

We have already been to Munchen, Salzburg, and Maastricht and have been enjoying ourselves getting immersed in the history and occasionally the large variety of beers and wines available here. It's potent stuff, but some of it is absolutely tasty.

We have found Brussels the least nice location, but an hour's train travel away is a lovely old town called Brugge (Pronounced Bruje)that has many photographic treasures of old streets, village squares, churches, towers and statues. In fact everywhere we have been in Europe we have found statues and religious artifacts, usually of the Roman Catholic variety ie, Virgin Mary and numerous saints this or that.

Today we are off to Amsterdam to see its delights.
