I am back home! My friends of the village have given me a fantastic welcome. It was the culmination of a journey, in which I experienced so many signs of kindness and sympathy. Fiona and Gavin of Sea View Café in Borth-y-Gest treated me to Champagne and sandwiches, whi...

Today was the last but one day of travelling. I covered again a long distance. I am now in the village of Llangynog in Powys in the Welsh mountains. Unmistakably the baa baa of sheep is all around me. I would like to come back to a topic, which exercised me from the fi...

This afternoon I crossed the border from England to Wales. I had intended to take a photo of the welcoming to Wales sign, but it was so small and derelict that I did not find it worth the trouble. Now here is a short Geography lesson for my German readers: Never say Wa...

Today I had a full day of travelling, which meant sitting on the tractor for over seven hours without significant break. I loved it! You may think that it is boring just to trundle along country roads. For me it is not. Every corner brings a new sight. I have never see...

After yesterday’s excitement today was much quieter. I met up with my son Tom at Windsor. I wanted to go there as it is one of the homes of the British monarchs and it has given the name to the present Royal Family. ‘Windsor’ sounds authentically English. However the n...
