Lack of Wi-Fi

Sorry folks, we'll be right back as soon as we solved our technical difficulties...

Stray Ray

My aunt does have wi-fi but she can't remember her password and so we have been without access since we have arrived in Berlin.  That said, we seem to have picked up a a rouge stream of unguarded wi-fi and so we'll use that opportunity to say all is well.

We're shortly due to head off to the birthday venue for brunch, (10:00 - 16:00?) and if all goes to plan, I shall then be off to see Hertha Berlin take on Munich at the Olympic Stadium.

Following Munich's 3 - 0 loss to PSG during the week, it's a pretty good time to play them and maybe Berlin can get a decent result?

Anyway, we travel to Hamburg tomorrow and unless we get lucky and get some free wi-fi, we will be off the grid until Bielefeld where we shall either pick up a dongle or use the cyber cafe opposite my aunt's flat.

See you all soon and have fun.  We are.

Well Said

A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.

Spick and Span

Wifey spent some time cleaning up the flat and it's looking good for our departure.  We then met up with the O2s for coffee at the Bariera and said our farewells there and had a lovely time just sitting in the blistering sun.  I kid you not, it was so hot we had to move tables to sit under an umbrella.  A very nice way to leave our seaside resort but we shall be back soon enough- although 2019 is quite some way off.  Until then, ciao, ciao.

Berlin Here we Come

Pick up with GoOpti is scheduled for 11:15 and we drive to Marco Polo airport in Venice.  We've already checked in so that's all good and all that is outstanding is dropping off our two hold bags and we'll be clear.

We have plenty of time before our flight leaves at around 19:00 and then it's crossing over Berlin from Schoenefeld airport to our aunt's place at Tempelhof.  Hopefully we shan't be arriving too late and we can begin our German leg of the adventure.

Lean Pickings

We're going to be on and (more) off the Blog over the next few weeks as we head back to Germany today.  The reason being is that we will be crashing with our relatives and they prefer to keep nasty internet waves well and truly away from their places of abode.

If we can we'll pick up a dongle and get through with that, or we'll hit the odd cyber cafe, but on the whole we're not too fussed as we shall have plenty to keep us occupied before we fly home.

Keep an eye on the Blog for any updates but it will be rather more miss than hit.

Flying the Flag?

Donald Trump has been heavily criticised for his comments against professional athletes who kneel during the national anthem as a protest to police injustice against ethnic minorities.

Trump described it numerous times as “disrespecting our flag” – something it’s safe to assume he feels very, very strongly against.

But Twitter user Henry Wise was quick to helpfully point out chapter 10 of the US’s Flag Code.

Wise also points out that it actually isn't disrespectful to kneel during the national anthem, and that Trump and any supporters of his comments should look at their own behaviour.
