All Aboard

I am travelling to Germany in the company of Messrs Dufton and Tiffo. This is my first visit to continental Europe since my honeymoon in 1971. I am not overly impressed with the package that Chad booked. I hope the hotel is better than the ferry pictured here.


I won't be posting for a few days

I have it on good advice that you are hot-air ballooning over the Channel, Bill, so you might be spending time in a basket caught in a tree or power-lines.

The swans look more Channel-worthy than the ferry.
Bill Phillips: Yes the travel arrangements have been changed as the ferry sank

Oh, I cannot promise such sweet experiences like your honeymoon might have offered - but the hotel looks a bit more comfortable than this boat Monday - bon voyage!
Bill Phillips: i am looking forward to seeing both you and your beautiful city Philine.

We are staying at the Hotel Droiterhof, one of Munster's finer establishments I believe
Bill Phillips: I gather that since posting this the travel arrangements have changed and that we are flying by Imperial airways from Croydon.

I always say, when you hop on that airplane, make the sound of an engine, that helps a lot.
This is a great picture of the Tiffo Ferry and Hotel Droiterhof........
Enjoy!!!!!
Bill Phillips: I think we are going to have a lot of fun Lady P.

Hahahh!! Yes, looks like austerity measures are in place and that "we're all in this together". I think I pass on this "ferry" and fly. I like Graeme's comment. Have a great trip and watch out for those foreigners.. they don't even know which side of the road to drive on.
Bill Phillips: At least we will get more Euros for our pounds
Ah yes... a very fine boat and hotel... lol Be good now!
Bill Phillips: We will be on our best behaviour
Just don't expect anywhere near as much affection on this trip Bill. I thought you were trying to start a Boat Monday trend.
Bill Phillips: That is a great relief Chad. Just think when we went to Spain on our honeymoon..no not you and I...I went with Ange....Franco was still in power and would be for another 4 years.

Have you gone yet ...then it will be nice and peaceful
Bill Phillips: They are picking me up at about 10.30 this morning. So a couple of hours and it will be total peace
Have a good trip, dont take the pig or a camera.Prints will be in the post tomorrow.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mick. The pig is sulking because there wasn't room for him in the bag. The camera is going so that I can lend it to Chad who will probably forget to take one

I am a bit worried about the radioactive glow on the swans - it could be that you are contaminated and get put into quarantine at customs! Best just send the pig!
Bill Phillips: I thought you would spot the purple fringe!!
I'd be very, very worried. The swans are turning purple.
Bill Phillips: Pollution is a terrible thing Mary
Have a great time Bill and I love this image
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet. I had a wonderful time!
Great image Bill, the sense of neglect seems heightened, with the swans wandering around!
Have a great trip!
Bill Phillips: I had a great time Martin
Chad needs to reassess his taste in travel packages, Bill. Have a great holiday in Germany!
Bill Phillips: I had a wonderful holiday. Beautiful country and wonderfully friendly people.

If this is the ferry, then we may not be seeing you for a while! I hope you and your intrepid travelling companions enjoy your trip.

PS I'm trying to imagine why you have waited until now to travel abroad - 40 years is a long time to wait!
Bill Phillips: Haha...I have never been interested really. There were always places here that I wanted to visit. Mind you having visited Munster and with the wonderful hospitality we received from Philine, her brother and her friends I have to say I would go to Germany again. a beautiful country and the people in and around Munster were very friendly.
Forty years is a long time Bill - just make sure you don't shoot any Albatrosses, and I'll sure you'll be making your next trip in no time! smile
Bill Phillips: I had a wonderful time. We were made to feel very welcome and Munster and the area around it are very beautiful. The people are friendly and i think i am a fan of Germanysmile
You'll be there by now so I hope your journey went well, and have a great time all three of you.
Bill Phillips: We had a great time and Philine and her friends were such generous hosts and we were treated like royalty!
Wonderful image Bill.
Enjoy your stay in Germany!
Bill Phillips: I loved it Richard.
Travelling in style, eh? A ferry no less! I'd have thought you'd all be swimming.
Bill Phillips: Hehe nothing would have surprised me.
All joking aside- actually really love this image! The green algae on the blue boat - all that aging wood!
Have a spectacular trip!!!
Bill Phillips: We had a wonderful time and Philine and her friends were so generous with their time and treated us like royalty!
