... able to take a few days each week to travel around, possibly even into France, and of course I could fly out and back and do city breaks if finance permits. But the six month adventure to Australia seems a long way away, as does a trip to Germany. As for random travel of the Twitter kind, that seems a lifetime away :(

Rhe behaved himself and did not rip out the incredibly frustrating 6-speed gear box from the car and throw it into the sea.

... that wasn't incredibly exciting, but next to it was a huge mansion that a very rich family had build many years before. We toured this mansion and was able to see many things that most of the public does not. The whole mansion was designed to look like something out of a fairy tale. It was very intricately designed and colorful. The interesting thing about this mansion was that it was only used a couple weeks out of the year, so some rooms that were built ...
