Vitosha

Hi Viviane.

There are 4 TE locations for Vitosha. I forgot to mention it is not in Sofia City. I had to pay a small surcharge on my taxi fare for leaving Sofia city limits. There is an...

Thanks again Viviane

To worldcitizen: Passage

Hi Brenda

Several times I decided not to load 'Passage' because of that coat sleeve. I only have limited time and resources to clone it out. I used to have Adobe photoshop but it was wiped from...

Hi Gert

It actually wasn't that cold during the snowfall and the morning after. Around -5c. The last 2 days though it has dropped to -16c and tomorrow's forecast is -20c, even though there's no...

To danos: Replica

Hi Danos

I don't doubt Lord Elgin stole one of the 6 columns but I count six. Do you know which one is a replica? Or is the plain column at left in the bg where the original once stood? I can...

Skansen

That would make sense Paul and thanks for your reply. Skansen is indeed on an elevated hill and plateau with 360 degree expansive views over the surrounds, so it would have made an ideal fort in...

To holmertz: The ice man cometh

Hi Gert

I've only slipped over twice in the ice and snow. Once in Canada and again in Erzurum, Turkey. Both times no injuries, fortunately. At least no fractures. Just a small scratch in Lake...

Tortoise, Turtle or Terrapin?

Hi Ike

I forgot all about the terrapins (which are more common in the UK, eg.)

This article was both amusing and informative: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=17+1797&aid=947

Patmos

Maybe we are both right. St John wrote the book of revelations on Patmos but St Paul also spent time on Patmos. There are daytrip tours offered to the island from Turkey where it is advertised as...

It was actually much colder on New Year's Eve without snow. -10c and I couldn't stand it any more & went back to the warm hotel. It fell to -13c after midnight. I had planned on...

To holmertz: Proofreading

Thanks Gert

That's what happens when you wake up in the morning without a strong coffee. I've amended both the title and the note. First time I've seen heavy snow at night and the light was like...

Wroclaw

Hi Ryszard

And well deserved accolades. There is much more in Wroclaw than just the gnomes described in travel books. People in Krakow (which has an abundance of tourist sites itself) tell...

To macjake: Hasankeyf

Hi Craig

I hired a guide in Hasankeyf, but in hindsight I did not need to. Overpriced imho. Some net research and download of maps would have been better. Just follow the road to Mardin up past...

To tyro: Art

Hi John

I found another image taken in the block 7 wash rooms but it doesn't say who painted it. Presumably by prisoners. The title 'Inmate Art' would strongly suggest so. Art by prisoners in...

Poland didn't even exist after WWI. And Hitler and Stalin partitioned Poland in WWII. They had made covert plans even before the 1939 invasion to return the borders to how they were in 1918....

To holmertz: Vocabulary

Hi Gert

The Angles, Saxons, and Jutes (Jutland, now Denmark) originally came from north west Europe to the UK via Holland so perhaps the 'skan' word was always there? English is a Germanic...
