My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  I'm Back Online

After a good deal of fiddling with cables - I'm not good at deciphering the odd glyphs that come with manuals these days - and trying to find the places where to type in the starter code and other information, both my computer and the laptop are back communicating with the net, and the phone works as well.

So I can go back to the usual work, but for now I'll leave you with some lovely pics of the Kiel Canal in the evening.

The Kiel Canal in the evening

It's way too hot here, and in the evenings we get the usual thunderstorms. This is going to develop into the typical German summer of heat, thunderstorms, rain, cool weather, hot again, thunderstorms ..... We've been through that the last two years as well.

Another view past sunset

I'm hunting down some reliable information about the Kiel Canal for a post, since I have so many photos of that one - it takes about 8 hours to cross it and there were plenty of views - not to mention the lock at Kiel-Holtenau we passed on the way to the Baltic Sea in the morning after we'd been traveling through the canal during the night.

Glad to see you back!
 
Welcome back! :)
I love canal pics. Do you have lock pics too? Very interesting process, going through a lock.
 
Thank you, Carla.

Constance, yes I have some lock pics, but you can't see that much from a larger ship - I suppose watching from the outside or on a wee boat would make for more interesting photos. But we had one of those big freight ship monsters as neighbour. :)

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
