I took my children camping at Sherando Lake in Lyndhurst, Virginia (about 30 miles south-west of Charlottesville). We arrived at the campground at 10:30 PM Friday night and didn't know that they close & lock the gate each night at 10:00 PM. So we slept the first night in the car at the gate until they opened it Saturday morning at 6:00 AM. The camping was excellent and there were many things to photograph which I plan on sharing with you... (5 photos)
Nothing fancy and extravagant in 2009 . After two years without getting out of the country, we finally opted to head South. This time for Mexican Riviera Maya.
Relaxing most of the time at the resort, but we did some excursions around. I will share with you some of these souvenirs. (19 photos)
May 2009, my wife and I wanted to go to Memphis, Tennessee and spend the weekend at the Peabody Hotel and wander around Memphis. In researching the things to do in Memphis, I found there is a big celebration called "Memphis in May" and cannot get a room at the Peabody - it is already booked for that first weekend of the month. That weekend has "The Beale Street Music Festival" - 63 bands are scheduled to play over three days and nights.... (full story) (27 photos)
This year I accompanied two classes of year 7 to their classtrip. We went sailing on the Ijsselmeer and the North Sea.
The two ships were both around 100 years old. The children had to work and help with setting the sails and all the other things you have to do to make a sailing ship move across the water. It was a great experience for them and it helped them to become a "community".
I enjoyed the week in the Netherlands, it almost felt like being on holiday.
In this travelogue I'd like to show you some images I have taken on board of the two ships ("Overwinning" and "Vertrouwen"). (8 photos)

Here I'll show you some impressions of Vienna in Austria. In April 2008 I have been to Vienna with a class of graduating pupils. As their teacher I showed them around and tried to get some good shots of this fascinating city. I wasn't able to take photos of all the places I would have liked to see but tried to do my best on what I saw. Some of the photos are only of personal interest but I hope to show you some that may be of interest to you too.
Thanks for having a look. Kind regards, Britta (5 photos)
