Juli 2019, Canal Grande, Venezia.
Mit dem Canal Grande hatte ich dann aber ein bisschen mehr Glück. Auch wenn dort immer reger Verkehr herrscht kann man durchaus ein Bild mit etwas ruhigerer Atmosphäre machen.
Seid ihr schon mal mit einer der Gondeln gefahren? Ich bisher jedenfalls noch nicht. Diesmal war es allerdings das erste Mal dass ich viel mit den Vaporetti unterwegs war. Es lohnt sich wirklich. Man bekommt nochmal ganz andere Eindrücke.
Habt einen schönen Donnerstagnachmittag.
I had a bit more luck with Canal Grande. I mean, it is always buzzing with all kind or boats. With a bit of patience, you can still get a picture projecting a quieter atmosphere.
Did you ever take one of the gondolas? So far, I haven't. This time however my US friends motivated me to use the Vaporetti and its worthwhile. The change of perspective is fascinating.
I still root for the Veneziani and hope their situation will improve.
In todays second catchup update, Bamps recalls his first trip on a steam train at the Spa Valley Railway.
He enjoyed a relaxing trip along the lines, before hopping off early and enjoying a stroll through the country finding a delightfully colourful pub garden just away from the tracks. When time allows, he finds simple ambling along in new places perched in his rucksack view of the world to often be the most calming and enjoyable ones with unexpected finds often the most fun.
Firstly, Bamps and his scribe apologise for the lack of updates this week. Normally Bamps would suitably chastise his scribe but alas it has been an exceptionally busy work week that has left little time for much else but eating and sleeping. Given that Bamps understands that without these his scribe becomes more useless than usual he has chosen to let this slide this time. Instead to catch up, the first of 3 updates today.
So, back to the review of the year so far and today recalling Bamps' first foray into retro-geekdom when he visited the Power Up retro event at the Science Museum @sciencemuseum. Here he enjoyed classics such as arcade Street Fighter, Sonic and Mario among others.
Welcome to the Windy City! I’ve been visiting Chicago since I was a child. But I’d forgotten how charming the city can be.
I’d also forgotten how much I love a day trip on a whim with one plan - to explore. (And, of course, to eat but that’s always the plan.) Have to figure out how to return trips like these to my routine.

Have you heard, @flycemair is now offering direct flights from Johannesburg to Margate?
This is awesome, because now you can just hop on a plane and fly down to enjoy an epic deep sea fishing trip with us. Easy peasy. No stress, no fuss.
I asked this guy if he worried the train coming or not😱, he told me the train only works in the midnight👍! What a cool country #Brazil !
Run to the nature!
Go and check up @geoovani he is super cool with the GoPro!
