Short movie from our visit to Nuremberg in Germany

I hadn’t had a chance to visit Nuremberg before – turns out this is an impressive town with a lot of history (medieval and all the way to the Third Reich). This movie was taken below the high walls of the castle, where many German emperors lived or held court, e.g. Barbarossa. The famous artist Albrecht Dürer had his studio here too. Not surprisingly many tourists visit this town – also in winter for the famous Christmas market.

Brighton – as the sun is setting

Our last day of vacation – saying goodbye to beautiful Brighton and the south of England. We are just walking out of Hove, in the west the sky is still bright; in the east darkness falls. A splendid summer evening.

More photos from our trip to south England

Below the study of Charles Darwin, perhaps the greatest scientist of all time. We visited his family home Downe House, located south of London.

 

Vacation in England is incomplete without the occasional shower. You can see some of the raindrops on the window of our small caravan. Beautiful sunset though.

 

We visited Brighton – I have chosen an atypical motif. Or is it? Not so sure as Brighton is a surprising city.

 

Cream tea is a traditional!

Some photos from our trip to the UK #vacation #trip

We are on a one week trip to England! The weather during the Channel crossing was great. We always take the ferry (and not the tunnel) for nostalgic reasons, the ferry is a bit slower, but the experience (that’s the White Cliffs of Dover in the distance) is unbeatable.

Hastings, the place where William the Conqueror landed in 1066. The old harbor is very attractive for a walk, and the restaurants offer good food too.

 

This seagull had its head straight into the west wind, intelligent animals, always on the lookout for some food that the tourists may drop. I love their cry; a mix of hopelessness and glee.

 

I loved the old boats on the beach; doesn’t this scene have a post-apocalyptic flavor to it? It almost looks as if the background is fake, but this is the real sky and beach. The colors are splendid.
