Little Britain

It really is. No, I'm not being sarcastic. Nor do I want to offend anyone. It really, really is.And it's Linda's. Not Elizabeth's.
It's Linda's Little Britain . 


She opened her little shop last week in Hilversum, The Netherlands. Linda herself is born in Inverurie, Scotland and she's been living in Holland for many years now.


She specialises in typical British groceries and gifts.










If you happen to pass Hilversum or live nearby,
please give her shop a visit. The address is Vaartweg 22a Hilversum, 28 km southeast of Amsterdam.

Vertigo ? Don't watch this !

The weather hasn't been particularly sunny and warm this summer. Last tuesday I took advantage of a short dryspell and took my boys out for a day of altitude.
Near Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, on The Veluwe is 'Het Klimbos'. It's an outdoor activity centre offering you the opportunity to climb through the pinetrees upto a height of 15 meters. They have 2 junior routes for children who can reach to 1.4m and 4 routes for kids and adults who can reach to 1.8m and one tokkelroute.
Sit back on your couch, fasten your seatbelt and watch the walk through the trees for 15 minutes (it took us more than 3 hrs).

TGO Challenge 2007 day 7 : Kingussie-Rothiemurchus Forest

Pffff. Day 7 of my TGO Challenge is now online. It's easier to walk then to publish.

Phil at Doodlecat has asked me to republish the written account of my 2007 crossing. As you'll probably know the company that owns Fotopic has stopped their service and my story and all my Highlands and Islands pictures along with pictures of the ELD are no longer available online. I'm currently trying to locate my story on disfunctional computers. Once located I'll put it all back on t'internet using a new personal website. You'll just have to wait a little bit longer for that.
