Just a bit about me. Most of my travels occured during my service in the navy and my professional career. Having been in charge for exports I had the opportunity to see many places of the world. Most of my time I enjoyed during my assignments in Far East and South East Asia, where I spent almost 30 years. Some of the cities on other continents I just visited once others countless times. Lucky enough to visit 5 continents during the course of my busy years.
Enjoy your trips with Virtualtourist.com and feel at home on my site.
Though not really fitting into a chest pocket of a shirt is that powerful cute S 5000 camera, but into the pocket of my jacket . With a magnificent 10x optical (plus a 2.2 digital) zoom I can reach any far away objects. Mostly I use the JPEG format, but also available is the professional RAW, which does not allow the camera to use its internal software.
In other words, take the shots and work on them at your computer, particularly the white-balance.
Now I enjoy VIP treatment on all travels, in hotels, rent-a-car services, musicals, etc. it is much more enjoyable to travel and benefit from my membership.
During a birthday party my daughter caught us when we had just finished to eat the cake.
My son lives about 300 km away - therefore the chance to talk is rather seldom. However, internet chats, SMS and email are used with almost daily frequency.
Neither from the face of my youngest grandson nor from me much can be seen.
Nevertheless I found it worthwhile to publish this photo because of two reasons:
1. he wanted to sleep an my lap, which he did soundly
2. and I was happy to keep him there for one hour despite I was scheduled for an appointment - and I let it go! (of course I phoned)
The feeling to have someone close to me was more important!
I love my little new apartment, which is located right along the river Rhine. My balcony is towards South East.
Hanging Geraniums fence my little castle.
and affection to Asian countries. Therefore, I designed my living room a bit with a touch of Far East.
