    Forth Bridges

    August 27 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    No hash today, so might as well do some sightseeing here in Edinburgh.
    The Forth Rail Bridge (the Rail was added, as it is a railroad bridge), after the Forth Road Bridge was built. The “Rail” bridge is a cantilever bridge built in the 1880s, and became operational in 1890. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. At 8,094 feet long, it is the second longest bridge of its type in the world. A major refurbishment was completed in 2011, including painting, is anticipated to last 25 years. The Forth Road Bridge (in the middle) opened in 1964, and is 2.5 Kms long, with a single span of over 1000 meters. The Queensferry Crossing bridge opened to traffic in 2017, and is 2.7 Kms long. These bridges connect Edinburgh and Fife, and provides a route to the north of Scotland, for the cities of Dundee and Aberdeen.

    Rangers - YB 1:1

    December 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 0 °C

    Leider wars heute nicht unser Tag.
    Mit teilweise grandiosen Slapstick- Einlagen unserer Verteidiger 😊 schaute nur ein 1:1 heraus. Ein Gööli zuwenig, aber was solls.
    Die Spieler scheinen ja ziemlich müde zu sein, oder wie heisst es so schön: überspielt.

    Hier ein paar Eindrücke

    Monday with Mum

    August 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    After the hash, my Hash Mum Helen and I went back to her house and got back to work on the myriad of things to do for EuroHash this week and UK Nash Hash next week, as well as the arrival of 32 more Hashers mostly from New Zealand and Australia.

    Right now, I'm organising (British spelling) the Edinburgh H3 haberdashery for Helen and she's cooking a batch of soup for the five Hashers staying with her. I have to move out tonight, but I get to stay with my Oz and Kiwi friends. Yay!

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Forth Bridge

    June 21, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    bei phantastischem Wetter. Ein gewaltiges Bauwerk, dass nur dazu dient, ein paar Lindwürmern die Überquerung des Firth of Forth zu ermöglichen.
    Die Queensferry Crossing Bridge (die hintere) und die Forth Road Bridge haben viel größere Spannweiten, sind sehr elegant, aber bei weitem nicht so imposant wie die Forth Bridge.Read more

    Lunchstop Linlithgow

    September 30, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Na ruim een uur vertraging vanwege een kapot vliegtuig dat vervangen moest worden komen we aan in Edinburgh. Dedame van Europcars probeert ons met het valse voordeel van een navigatiesysteem een auto voor de helft van de prijs aan te smeren. We kiezen voorde oorspronkelijke auto die ook een navigatiesysteem blijkt te hebben.

    We rijden vlot de M9 naar Stirling op maar de lunch lonkt Dus even gestopt voor een hartige snack. De gemiddelde leeftijd binnen werd stevig verlaagd bij onze binnenkomst.

    Op deze zonnige dag toch maar even binnen in de authentieke Schotse borders sfeer gegeten.
