2013 was all short-haul for a change.
It was Poland for the British Guild of Travel Writers’ AGM in February with stays in Krakow and Zakopane and its ‘alkoholes’ where much Polish vodka was drunk.
Soon after, I had to dash off to Glasgow..
In March it was three weeks in Hungary where I was hit by the snow and had to do my research in temperatures of -8C.
April belonged to Germany: three weeks from Munich to Cologne via Freiburg.
Late May and early June it was Greece; mostly and Athens and Rhodes where I was struck by Lindos
July and it was the beautiful north of England: Durham Newcastle and Lindisfarne which I found fantastic.
September and it was Greece again (Lesbos).
In August I found out I was GCSE material.
November was quite fun with the WTM and all that.
December: well it had to be Vienna and its Karlskirche.
The highlights were far too numerous to mention, with honourable mentions to Heidelberg and Lindisfarne but managing to find a century-old church on Lesbos built by my great grandfather can’t be compared to anything else.
So what do I have to look for in 2014? France, Greece, Romania so far planned.
Oh well. Here it goes again…
Please forgive me. Just now, I looked at your website and realized I have infringed on your copyright. Unfortunately, the publication I used your photo in has been sent to print and I can’t recall it.
Maybe it will help if you know that I not only gave your name as the copyright holder of the photo, but also included the URL of the site where I found the photo. The photo is of the Chapel of St. Methodia on Kimolos. I used it in a publication we call the “Aid to Worship” at St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church in Durham, North Carolina. Only 30+ copies will be printed for tomorrow’s Divine Liturgy. It will not be used for anything other than that.
I retroactively ask your permission to include your photo in the St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church “Aid to Worship” for 12 October 2014.
If I may,
That is fine, permission granted.
However, I am not sure how well it will come out. All my website images are low-res (non-printable quality) so that they are good enough on the web but cannot be used for publication. Had you contacted me earlier, I would have sent you a high-res, printable version.
