September 2007


Würst is the German word for sausage. My first true würst is Berlin's entry in the field – currywürst.

Day trip to Sanssouci, Potsdam

I visit Potsdam's Sanssouci, the palace (or perhaps I should say set of palaces) and accompanying grounds which together form one of the most impressive displays of royal grandeur in Germany.

Touring Berlin

A long day of walking around Berlin checking out the sights historical and old, including going up the Reichstag cupola and a nice walk though the Tiergarten.

Looking over Berlin

Well, after a good sleep, a bunch of fruit, and a quick chat to some friends who were online, I was feeling mostly recovered, so I headed up the Fernsehturm TV tower to orient myself to Berlin.

Frankfurt to Cologne on the Rhine

Arrive at Frankfurt bright and early, and head out to Mainz to catch a river cruise up the Rhine to Cologne – via a bazillion drive-by castles, churches, and half-timbered houses.

Singapore to Frankfurt

Zip out to Raffles for the obligatory expensive cocktail and do a quick geocache before heading out to the airport and on to Frankfurt.

Going/gone to the birds

Hot on the heels of my visit to the Night Safari, day 2 in Singapore saw me negotiating the public transport system and heading out to the Jurong Birdpark.

An evening visit to Singapore's Little India, and the Night Safari

After heading back to base for a nice cool shower, it was time to make my way out to the famous Singapore Night Safari.

Off to the camera shops in Singapore

With a full trip ahead my first task in Singapore was to go buy a new camera to replace my battered old S60. Full steam ahead to the Sim Lim Square bazaar!

Flight cancellation fun

Well, you expect things to go wrong at some point, but that didn't take long: my next flight, from Melbourne to Singapore this afternoon, has been cancelled (or if you like, delayed 16 hours)…

Getting up at 3:30 in the morning is about as much fun as it sounds…
