Six Wheels in Germany – May 2022 (Month 98)

First a warning – there seems to be an excess of cake photos in this blog post.

Last month I detailed our plans for Klaus’s birthday… Continue reading Six Wheels in Germany – May 2022 (Month 98)

Welcome to the start of 2022. December was a quiet month in Auntie Helen’s household and January has been much the same.

Six Wheels in Germany – December 2021 (Month 93)

Welcome to the end of 2021. For some people 2021 was a year to forget because of all the problems of COVID-19.

What has also been good is my new job, where I am… Continue reading Six Wheels in Germany – December 2021 (Month 93)

Six Wheels in Germany – November 2021 (Month 92)

Honeymoon #3 As I mentioned in previous blog posts, as we cannot have our ‘proper’ honeymoon this year we are planning one weekend away a month as a mini honeymoon, and it seems that we will be staying in castles for each of these (well, why not!) The chosen castle for November was Burg Schnellenberg… Continue reading Six Wheels in Germany – November 2021 (Month 92)

Six Wheels in Germany – October 2021 (Month 91)

Six Wheels in Germany – July 2021 (Month 88)

Activities this month Running I first started running in July 2020, on July 27 to be specific. This was the Couch to 5k programme and I had no idea if I would complete it – I didn’t know if running would be for me. Turns out I got on well with the Couch to 5k… Continue reading Six Wheels in Germany – July 2021 (Month 88)

Three Wheels in Austria – June 2021 (Month 87)

The observant among you may have noticed that the title of this blog post has changed. No, I haven’t permanently moved to Austria, nor sold my Velomobile or my trike, but it seems that 95% of this blog is about our holiday in Austria (which included trike) so I thought it was fair to change… Continue reading Three Wheels in Austria – June 2021 (Month 87)
