    Quiz Update from Mr K!

    July 26 in Germany

    As we make our way across Germany (and of the 17+ countries I've been to this is one of my favourites!) I should mention that I'm looking forward to seeing my cats (even if I'd also like a dog as well) and going away in the caravan to a campsite when I get home. 

    I think I may also need an Indian curry soon, as long as my size-11s don't wear out before reaching the restaurant, at least it wouldn't involve swimming more than 100m, although I'd run there if needed, even at my age having been born in the 70s!

    Also looking forward to a bacon & sausage sandwich over the summer, eaten using my right hand and with brown sauce, if there's too much sauce I'd need to use my knife and fork (but could leave the spoon), and I could wash it down with a nice cup of coffee. 

    The karaoke at the back has just broken into "Don't Stop Me Now" which is great, just wondering if they could add in a little 'vocalise' or the theme tune to the Onedin Line too maybe? If music was also their fave subject at school it shouldn't be too hard?!

    Must also get back on the golf course asap as I have withdrawal symptoms, I could catch up on the Radio 5 sports news whilst I'm at it, and following a round perhaps a G&T or a real ale, or mint choc chip ice cream?

    Have heard that Daniel Craig is going to do one more Bond film which is great, although hope he doesn't follow in another previous Bond's footsteps and start appearing in musicals as I don't see him as a lead in West Side Story, similarly don't see him as a Gryffindor in a Harry Potter movie either; maybe he could branch out into Sci-Fi and do either Star Wars or Star Trek, that would be brilliant!

    New Bake-Off should be on soon which will be great; think it has the potential to run for at least as long as I've been working for NMPAT, so 17-20 for sure. Noel Fielding does a pretty good job, although I'd say he's a league down from the "big guns" of comedy like Billy Connolly; I'm sure Chandler from Friends would have a witty one-liner to say about "big guns"...

    Hope I haven't said too much? 😂😂😂😂

    Over the top

    June 3, 2017 in Germany

    This morning Nuremberg. The guide on the bus gave us an excellent commentary on the points of interest around Nuremberg, including where the war trials were held. We didn't take the walking tour today, instead, along with half the passengers, we strolled around the town. I assume that, because it's Saturday, there were markets and buskers and a very nice, friendly atmosphere. At over 5kms, Nuremberg has one of the longest intact city walls.
    Nuremberg is possibly best known for its Christmas market - the largest and busiest in Germany, it attracts visitors from worldwide. As with so many old towns, there is a market square in the centre. In the square is the 'beautiful fountain'. There is a loose brass ring in the wrought iron around the fountain. A local told me that if you turn it seven times, it brings good luck. A short walk from here is the large shopping area similar to most larger towns.
    The markets have wonderfully fresh and delicious looking fruit and veg, flowers, cheese and, possibly my favourite, gingerbread, another thing Nuremberg is famous for.
    The canal that we're in was only completed in 1992. It joins the Main and Danube Rivers and makes this cruise possible. The canal crosses the Continental Divide. We have climbed up the northern side of the divide and, until now, all the rivers flowed North towards the North Sea. Now they flow towards the Black Sea. Today we have climbed about 175 metres by 11 locks, the last being 3 in a row, each lifting us 25 metres. This took us to the top. The continental divide is marked by a fairly insignificant wall. Anyhow we'll be dropping about 68 metres overnight and heading for Regensburg tomorrow.

    Der Magen knurrt!

    June 7 in Germany

    Gabi hat die Idee einen kurzen Stopp einzulegen. Der Magen hat sich gemeldet. Haben eine schönen Platz direkt vor einem Wald gefunden. Jetzt gibt es gleich Spaghetti mit Tomatensauce. Kann es kaum erwarten!
