"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???

September 2014: England
May 2015: Belgium
