Hello World…… no2

Posted by mervfrench on September 21, 2010

Im typing this on a ipad in an Apple store in Dortmund Germany, these would be a great little thing to have on a trip like this, research as you go, but I digress. We,ve had a great run around Western Europe and dropped the camper back today. The guy was blown away that we did 6800 km in 20 days but we didn,t think it was anything special. We certainly kept on the go but nothing to insane,hell it.s only about  1000 km top to bottom in France , önly Albany to Geraldton  :-). We have seen what we planned to see and more so it.s all good.

If I see one more croissant ( only eaten 2 )  or see arsefarten  or mineä shultzen finä funken  again …………..  :-):-)

So tomorrow we take the fast train too Paris then the Eurostar toö London, hire a car and head out  into England and B&B,s  for 10 days, a pint of larger,  pork pies and  road signs in english. !!!!!!

One disappointment. We were in Cologne yesterday and Photokina starts there tomorrow, if we weren,t pre booked on the train we would have stayed. I did find out that there is a new 400 2.8  from Canon, now that would be handy, and the S90 is now the S95 with HD video ( one for you Flemming ).

Ok thats it, the guys in the store are starting look at me funny and I don,t want to be taken away and interrogated.

Hello World ….

Posted by mervfrench on September 10, 2010

Well a quick update on the trip for those that might be interested.   We are in Monte Rosso   Cinque Terre Northern Italy. Everything is going well, no problems with anything , even have the driving under control. when we picked up the camper i pulled out onto the wrong side of the road and then went into the roundabout the wrong way , I learnt real quick about the driving. Italy has the easiest road rules in the world, there are none !!!!

Some quick points so far.

1   There are too many people in the world.

2   Perht Airport needs to look at Singapore airport and learn something.

3  There are too many people in the world.

4 Germany has a fantastic road system

5  There are too many people in Germany.

6   Getting around London is like walking around a monopoly board. You have to pinch yourself  when you are in front of Big Ben or Buckingham Palace that you are actually there.

7   There are too many people in London.

We are now onto the south of France for a few days which we are really looking forward too.

C Ya.
