Tim's Travelling Adventures

Well, this started out as a way that my wife could follow my lone progress in my little sports car from Birmingham UK to Orkney.

Been there, done that 2 day there, 13hour return trip.

So now follow me: an Englishman representing Americans and based in a French office near Paris. With an appartment in Versailles and trips back to the UK anything can happen and, frankly, I've no idea where this will lead!

Big Brother

(viewed 466 times)
OK So Sharon's in New York this week. Time to try some Big Brother Tactics.

I checked her actual departure time on the Air France website. Then I
tracked her aeroplane across the Atlantic on another site before watching her land on JFK International Airport's radar webfeed.

I missed her on the Empire State Building webcam, but found her on the webcam looking out over the junction of 5th Avenue and 45th street.

That's her talking to me there.

I'm in Paris, France.

Tried to find the pictures of me Flying in Australia. Apparently I never got
around to scanning them. Found these though.

For Miss Pretty Pants.

For Mandy: Cessna 172 on floats over Prince Edward Island, Canada.

I always wanted to fly in a float-plane (a flying boat would be my absolute Fav.). So when we went to PEI we chartered a pilot & plane from Charlottetown for an hour's tour of the Island Province. Awesome.

I didn't even know there were sprinklers in the gardens..., and as if by
magic they rose from the ground.....

Laziest toaster ever

(viewed 646 times)
Seen in Auchan.

Is this the world's Funkiest toaster?

Put plate underneath; when the bread is perfectly toasted it just drops out of the bottom and onto the plate.

You know you want one........

Sharon Moving in 4


Drive the van back. I drove it almost to the Eurotunnel and Father-in-Law took it across the channel and took it all the way back to Wolverhampton. We set out early and he didn't get home until after 8pm. Thanks Bryan!

Seeing as we were almost at the seaside anyway we went to Le Touquet for a look-see. Nice place, sandy beach. The beach is better in La Baule (cleaner) but Le Touquet is a nicer place to walk around and the area just in from the sea is really smart.
