hey all

Stumbling across this place - looks like a really good setup, so i decided to sit down with an ice cold liquid amber, put my feet up and socialise with members here !

My wife & I love travelling, and when life got in the way, we had a 10 year break. We have just planned out our European holiday for 10 weeks travelling the south-west with the children in tow. We are never going to be able to purchase a house, so we decided to teach our children that there is many things to see in this world and make them culture rich. Our trip will encompass France / Spain / Portugal / Italy mainly but also visit Belguim / Netherlands (my heritage) and Germany.

I am an avid photographer, motorsports is my field of expertise at the moment, but that can become repetitive, so i have spread my wings and view the world through the viewfinder. I currently am trying to piece together a book, and hoping that it will become quite successful, more to follow.

Ok enough babbling ...

Looking forward to new acquaintances.
