This travel memory takes me to Oignies (amazing I remembered that) in the Ardennes, Belgium in the autumn of the mid-1970s. Europe My late father, as well as being eccentric. See Opera, An Eccentric Parent and London Tap Water. No surprise! Did a fair amount of business travel in Europe. He amazingly spoke German. But … Continue reading The Ardennes – Belgium
I thought it would be fun to talk some more about travel. I have always liked exploring places, on foot. I can't now, but could in the past. You get such a good feel for a place. And I like to remind myself of all the places I've visited and some I have yet to. … Continue reading Bay of Biscay – 1960s Travel

My previous blog post Do you want fries with that?… was a nod to travels past...and a comment from a reader on that post started me thinking about … Continue reading I went to London – well, virtually!
Do you want Fries with that? It's funny how memories suddenly leap out (at 2am!). It was surprising for me, as my mind has been a kin to a pin ball machine recently, pinging all over the place! Serenaded by 'ringy' ears. This particular memory took me to London Heathrow Airport (a rather emotive subject again). … Continue reading Do you want fries with that?
A visit to Peng Chau Hello. I'm back again. I'm serenaded today by blustery August weather. The wind in the trees sounds almost like the sea. I'm picking up on the theme from a previous post below. 'More than a shadow - a view' And how memories and past experiences have kept me going during … Continue reading A visit to Peng Chau
