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!

Top quote of the weekend....

(viewed 381 times)
.....away in Geneva was "This hotel looks just like a Swiss Chalet".I think that's the look the Swiss Hotel was going for.

Fireworks - the dark side.

Kids, fireworks, matches - Discuss.

Waiting for the band in the market square in Versailles with probably about 100 other people... We watched kids playing... With matches and fireworks.

Bangers, rockets and toddlers; that'll be France then.

13th July

(viewed 391 times)
14 July is Bastille Day in France. Versailles does stuff the evening
before, including a parade (so much smaller than the one in Paris the day
after that I missed it completely) and then there's a band on in the
evening. They were great.

Back to Brum

(viewed 589 times)
Just for the day during the week before last. Stayed in the Etap in Brum
City Centre; clean, cheap and friendly. It's a brand new hotel and feels
like it.

Odd parking

More French oddness in Honfleur.

Beautiful place and we might be living there in a few months.

End of my Mountain Bike

In fact my younger brother gave (lent) it to me ages ago.... But now it is
no more.

It was in need of a serious going over before I fell off it all those months ago (new gearset needed, new chain, new ratchet / bearing, tyres.....)
and then I bent the bits that were ok.

Do those handlebars look straight to you? And the bar-ends looked lethal before I bent them.

So bye-bye bike. Sniff. You've been a friend and you've done your best to kill me once or twice... But that's ok 'cos now you're replaced.
