History lesson!
The Battle of Waterloo was fought in 1815 resulting in Napoleon's defeat. This battle changed Europe. Sorry about you having deleted your blog...maybe you can ask Travel Camel or Jo Trouble for help restoring the original blog...they are the administrators.

deleted the blog
Hi Bob thanks for that I never thought to do anything like that . I suppose I guessed it was gone forever. If they can get it back it will be brilliant as I put a lot more information on it ., I bet you are feeling odd being back after such a wonderful trip . The Silk Road is so evocative. We have a Silk Road in Macclesfield and it is lined with old mills that used to use silk . We are off tomorrow for France so hopefully the blogs will become a touch more interesting although not as interesting as yours. Perhaps you will remember some of the places that we are visiting. we start at Bergues in northern france then on to Trier in germany, down to Lake Bled in Slovenia and right down to Dubrovnik with a bit of Italy thrown in. Been following Tales of a Woolly Mammoth . What a shame that motorhoming didnt work out for them. We find Suzy is a tad expensive to run and she doesnt always get where we want to go to but hey ho that is half the adventure - plan and change the plan. Hopefully their tents and Oliver will work better for them.

the ice age
Hello Woolly Sion here. I hear you have been complaining about the cold back here in England. Mum was telling me all about the Ice Age so I guess you should be used to all that cold and ice. And counting sheep - did you remember me when you counted them? I liked the idea of the I Spy book - I spend most of my time shouting " Are we there yet" and I sit in the side window waving at motorhomers as they drive towards Suzy. I am a very very devious sheep when it comes to photographs. Mum likes to take shots of the scenery as we drive along and she is always surprised when she downloads them to find me in the reflection from the mirror. Suzy wants to know if Georgie is a boy or a girl? I am counting the days down - 2 days and I will be going on a steam train. I am a contented little sheep .

Our holidays
Although I may do the Silk Road with my son who will be moving from Bangkok to Rome in April 2013, our next trip will likely be to Peru and Bolivia. We have never been to South America. Your trip next Spring ending in Dubrovnik sounds great. That is also on our list...see my profile page for our list.

Thanks for the memories...
when we lived in Brussels, almost every Spring we would cross the Channel to Kent to see the lambs and daffodils. Hope you can enjoy that little corner of England in better weather some day...perhaps on your way to France! I also liked your blogs about London as we have spent time there too.
16th November 2012

your holidays
Enjoyed your trip - it all sounded a lot more exotic than Kent and I guess your weather was a lot better than we experienced. Would you do a cruise again? It sounds as if you had a wonderful time. Winter has set in here , its a lot colder than last week and we have frost. We watched the news on the hurricane hitting New York. sounds like you had it bad. And on top of that your elections. Well where is it to next? We have booked our holidays for next April and May four weeks and Dubrovnik the final destination with a lot of Italy in between.

Post Travel Blues
You described that disappointing sensation of not exploring on a daily basis so well, it mirrors my feelings exactly. Glad that you've already booked for next year, it is a sure way to make that your days brighter!

a feat of women
Hi Shane I inadvertent deleted a blog about Belgium called Waterloo a feat of women or somethink like that. It was put on around October 2011. I have redone it but its not the same as I cannot remember anything about the trip. Home and Away suggested you might be abl eto locate the deleted blog and reinstate it for me so that I can get rid of the new one which is quite frankly useless . Thanks Jennifer

Great to see you on the road again!!!
We are also counting down to our 38 day trip to the South Seas, Sydney, and New Zealand starting on 23 September...three weeks from today. I got our suitcases out and Linda has started to pack from her long check list. It's good to see her so excited about a trip as she hasn't really wanted to travel much...our last vacation was in 2008 on the Alaska Inside Passage cruise. I look forward to reading your blogs, and hope you have better weather this time.

What a trip...
rather than spend so much time in France on the way back, wouldn't it have been better to spend more time in Croatia?
16th June 2012

Hello Bob yes a misjudgement of time.With hindsight we should have gone down further and made it to Zadar, Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik but we really misjudged how long it would take to get there and back in tim efor work . We have another september trip and plan to go again to italy but next march we are definately back to Croatia and hopefull see more of Slovenia .
4th June 2012

Still reading!
Reading your blog has extended our holiday for us. We are back home now but so many things you say remind us of our six weeks. The sites, the facilities, the wine and the mixed weather. Sun, thunderstorms, clouds then sun again. Keep writing, love to hear your views of Slovenia and Croatia. Graham and Dee.

Back home now
We had a brilliant trip thanks, loved every minute of it, even the disasters! Came back to fantastic weather in Wiltshire so van all clean and washing done! Plan to go again in September to Northern Europe once the grandchildren are back at school. Hope your trip went ok, read your blog, like your information about castles and houses, our blog is less informative but have a look if wish. Search bloggers under "graham vaughan". Our trip was very similar to yours. We also went to Krk and loved it. Before I retired fully last year I did some work for the jobcentre, maybe that's what finally persuaded me to stop?!!
