More Travels & Funny Short Stories “Zoff im Medaillion” ("Life & Strife in the Locket")
After my "year off" because of breast cancer, I’m happy progressing new ideas and plans. Top of my list is travelling - longer journeys and further afield. And finally I found the time to realize a dream I've had for a long time - writing entertaining short stories with topics that concern us all “Zoff im Medaillion” - which could be loosely translated as “Life & Strife in the Locket”.
Arrival on Contadora - one of the small pearl islands in the Gulf of Panama. It was the last destination of the exiled Shah of Persia and many famous people like Julio Iglesias have homes here. The Caribbean is a great place to visit…
I have always been fascinated by the USA - especially the so-called Wild West. Here we are travelling through Arizona and New Mexico. The photographer whose shadow you see in the wine barrel is the world’s best travel companion!
This authentic Boulangerie has been a popular daily stop for hungry Parisians for many decades.We usually get some croissants, tasty "tarts" or a fresh loaf of bread to sustain us during longdays in the TV studios or else we just enjoy a good cup of coffee.
Puerto Pollensa is my favourite little town on the sunny island of Mallorca. I'd love us to go back for more sun, lunches on the beach, swimming in the sea…
The quaint little town of Digby in Nova Scotia, Eastern Canada was worth a trip.The same day a motorbike rally was taking place with over 3000 bikers arriving - including some lady bikers.
Writing pretty picture postcards is another favourite past-time which often belonged to past times during my TV career.Spending our short honeymoon on Malta (five days) we grabbed a few moments in a lovely café in Valletta to send greetings to family and friends.They had no clue…
The colourful little houses on the Venetian island of Burano are picture postcard stuff. Burano is one of many islands belonging to Venice and world-famous for its skilful lace production. However, it is less busy than larger Murano which attracts more visitors for its bright glass-blown jewellery, vases, souvenirs and chandeliers. The flair of these picturesque Northern Italian towns keeps calling me back for more visits like here in the middle of summer for my partner’s birthday. It was hotter than Bangkok! Scorchio…!
Dog or dragon? China is a fascinating destination. This vast country has so many faces. We simply have to return soon to explore it in much more detail!!!!
As the saying goes: Life’s a beach! Just like our relaxing late afternoons in Tongsai Bay in the Gulf of Thailand.Who wouldn’t like time to stand still for a while.
