The Final Bits

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 19 Jul 2012 | Views [376]

My trip took me to 13 countries, of which 8 I had not visited before; this brings my visited EU countries up to a total of 14 (Norway is not an EU member) so I’m just over halfway in my quest to visit them all. I have been away for 107 nights, staying ... Read more >

For my swan song and the last couple of days on this trip I have visited places that featured in my childhood. Firstly to Einbeck where I was able to visit the church of St Jacobi of which I have a painting, inherited from my parents, it hung ... Read more >

Germany, part 2

GERMANY | Saturday, 14 Jul 2012 | Views [337]

My journey from Poznan to Germany was punctuated with a brief stop at a town called Wolsztyn.   The reason was to see the last regular passenger train pulled by steam. As this is a big deal for the Polish railways, the timetable is arranged ... Read more >

Warsaw

POLAND | Sunday, 8 Jul 2012 | Views [595]

Wow! What a difference a few miles makes! Warsaw is much more a European city than I expected. Dominating the centre is the Palace of Culture Palace, a larger version of the on in Vilnius! From the top there are some wonderful views of the City, ... Read more >


Poland: First Impressions

POLAND | Sunday, 8 Jul 2012 | Views [753]

First impressions are always a little suspect but I was pleased to see that Poland is far more advanced than Estonia, Latvia, or Lithuania. The difference in the agricultural practices were evident as soon as I crossed the border, crops and animal ... Read more >

Lithuania and Vilnius

LITHUANIA | Tuesday, 3 Jul 2012 | Views [350] | Comments [1]

I have really enjoyed my time In Lithuania; I began my visit on the Baltic Sea coast in the town of Klaipeda. Here I really saw the remains of the last occupational forces in the country, huge concrete apartment blocks rotting in the climate ... Read more >

Riga

LATVIA | Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012 | Views [405]

This is another city that has surprised me, with again a long and complex history, this city has been the largest city in Sweden, occupied by Germans and Russians with the polish having a go as well. Today it is a growing cosmopolitan city which is ... Read more >

Tallinn

ESTONIA | Thursday, 21 Jun 2012 | Views [398]

Reluctantly I left Finland by taking the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. The Journey was shrouded in fog and rain but enlivened by a very camp Swiss American artist who insisted in crabbing my arm and insisting that I visit him soon! Yes, like that’s ... Read more >

Helsinki

FINLAND | Thursday, 14 Jun 2012 | Views [524]

I am still astonished at the beauty of this country. The forests of the North, the lakes of the East and now the setting of Helsinki! The harbour is right in the city centre and the Market Square is bordered on one side by water (except in winter ... Read more >

FINLAND | Thursday, 7 Jun 2012 | Views [472]

Lets me first say I’ve done a lot of driving these last few days, It’s a long way from Nourgam the most Northerly point in Finland and the EU. It is also so non-descript that all I’ll show you is the Town Sign! Then it was south to Inari to ... Read more >


Several Northern Norway Highlights

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 31 May 2012 | Views [428]

So let’s start with saying that I forgot to say that Tromso claims to be the most Northerly City in the world. So then it was further north to Hammerfest which claims to be the most Northerly Town over 10000 and have the most northerly university ... Read more >
