"Welcome to tini58de's Colorful World" tini58de's Profile

I can't keep up with building new pages, because it seems like I am traveling too much! These are usually short trips over weekends or so, but the destinations and experiences are so wonderful that it takes awhile for me to let things settle....!

Pages that I will have to build, complete or update include: Katowice/Poland, Munich/Germany, Berwang/Austria and Bad Wimpfen/Germany, Cordoba/Spain, Granada/Spain, London updates, South Africa, Magdeburg and surroundings, Vienna, Porto, Sylt, Paris, Athens, Scotland, Lithuania, Antwerp, Sweden and many more !!!

Latest pages are Lapland (09/2012) and Rovaniemi (9/2012)

So please do stop by again and check them out!

Future plans???

April 2014: Hamburg and Lüneburg/Germany
May 2014: Zadar/Croatia
September 2014: England
May 2015: Belgium

My travels

As all of us here on VT I love to travel! I used to do these real adventure travels, but now I am slowly but surely getting a little calmer...!!!

My latest trips and travels were:

* 2014 daytrip to Cologne/Germany
* 2013 Lyon/France
* 2013 Nyköping/Sweden
* 2013 Bellwald/Switzerland

All pictures on my pages are my own pictures or taken with my camera, unless stated otherwise!

      Lyon it is - la Fete des Lumiéres! Awesome! This picture was taken at an event featuring "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Éxupéry, who was originally from Lyon! Loved it! Wishing you a good year 2014 as well, Lou!
