Kandersteg, Switzerland 06-09-2019

I've just spent a week on a train holiday round Switzerland (plus Eurostar and TGV to reach the destination and return) aircraft were sparse , mainly a few helicopters doing joy rides and other things, I didn't partake in the former as even by Swiss standards they were very expensive. The nearest I ...

Your English is far better than my Italian Claudio, I don't use it enough when I visit my daughter as she likes the children to speak English as much as possible. I hope that weather holds for mid October as I will be in imola then

I spent a bit of time at Stansted late this afternoon to get pics of the Kazakhstan Government's A330 which arrived, I hung around for the 727 but unfortunately cloud covered the sun about 2 minutes before it landed.... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48644232311_63d2eb1f44_o.jpg UP-A3001 A.330 ...

I spent most of the time under an umbrella to get a bit of shade but couldn't stay cool, drank 4 or 5 litres of water but as quick as I drank it just vapourised out of me despite wearing a climacool shirt. The heat haze caused some predictable problems ...
