Leaving Germany

Photo: Steinerne Brücke, Regensburg, Germany.  Oct 2012 I’m heading to Berlin this afternoon for my last night in Germany before flying to Wales tomorrow morning.  Hopefully my bank account still has enough money left to make the UKBA agent happy when I tell them I’m planning on staying until March (not counting a Lofoten trip, […]

Berchtesgaden – Germany

Photo: Dawn light over Watzmann from Jenner, Berchtesgaden national park, Germany.  Oct 2012 After a few nights in the Allgäu region, and without having any sort of plan or maps, I headed to Berchtesgaden, a place that I’m at least a bit familiar with.  It was still sunny when I arrived in mid afternoon, but […]

Allgäu – Germany

Photo: Twilight over Forggensee, Allgäu, Germany.  Oct 2012 After picking up my car in Munich I headed straight to perhaps my favorite region in Germany, the Allgäu.  Where rolling, cow filled pastureland meets the vertical wall of the Alpine foothills, the Allgäu is a magical place.  Combined with a late October Indian Summer, the region […]

Aggenstein – Germany

Photo: Moonlight silhouette of Aggenstein from Ostlerhütte, Allgäu, Germany. Oct 2012 If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, You’d know that I was cruising around the Alps for a week.  And a week of absolutely fantastic weather it was.  If I actually had any idea of how good the weather turned out to be, […]

Budapest – Vienna – Alps – Heading West

Photo: Vienna Opera House.  October 2012 Sometimes I think I have bad timing in life.  Leaving Lofoten on Oct 8th, I was sailing across the Vestfjorden while watching the best northern lights I’ve seen in my life.  6 weeks above the Arctic Circle and the lights finally show up when I’m on a boat and […]


Photo: Parliament building, Budapest, Hungary.  January 2007 I’m in Budapest for the week.  Was last here over the New Year of ’06/’07.  Not sure what to expect, but I’ll probably end up doing my normal wandering around the city all day looking for photos.  Hopefully I at least end up with a few better photos […]

Leaving Lofoten

Photo: Autumn sunset, Haukland beach, Lofoten Islands, Norway.  Oct 2012 After two weeks on Lofoten, and 6 weeks in total north of the Arctic Circle since August, it’s now that time to move on.  Tonight I take the Hurtigruten ferry to Bodø, arriving at 2am.  A couple hours ‘sleep’ in the ferry station and then […]

Borgvåg – Lofoten Islands

Photo: Abandoned barn, Borgvåg, Lofoten Islands, Norway.  August 2012. Borgvåg sits alone and isolated on the edge of the sea at the end of a gravel road.  Now mostly abandoned save for a few houses, the buildings stand as remnants of the past; waiting out their time until the day when the weather has finally […]

Stormy Sea – Stamsund

Photo: Waves crash over rocks at Stamsund, Lofoten Islands, Norway.  Oct 2012 Some blustery weather passed over the islands yesterday.  At one point I went out to a cool part of the coast beyond the hostel here in Stamsund to try and get a few photos.   Lots of sea spray in the air so I […]

Last Days on Lofoten Islands

Photo: Autumn light over Lofoten from Offersøykammen, Lofoten Islands, Norway.  Oct. 2012 My time here on Lofoten is soon coming to an end.  Today is stormy, making it a good day for rest and a bit of reading and writing.  Overall, it’s been a good Autumn; pretty dry, with some good calm days.  On a […]
