Lauingen, Wangen, Blevio and the festy train

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

I am currently writing this entry overlooking Lake Como. We are sardined into makeshift accomodation in the council offices (I think) in Blevio, across the lake from Como itself. Evidently there has been a lack of blog posts lately for which I can only offer excuses 😉 From Luebeck, we and our second concert in […]

Frozen Cappucino time

Saturday, July 16th, 2005

Whilst this may sound like a food post, it’s not, I swear! It is merely representative of the free pocket of time I have now found myself with, and the fact I am sharing it with a Frozen Cappucino (which is very good!) We are currently in Luebeck, in northern Germany. We sang last night […]

Guf

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

Is Guf is Good. Guf is the strawberry marshmallowy stuff they put on top of your ice cream here in Denmark. In Soro it is particularly good. I couldn’t help but marvel at the concept of the ‘half scoop’, which allowed me to try 10 flavours spread over 2 cones for about $8.50 Bargainous 🙂 […]

A Ribe! A Ribe!

Wednesday, July 13th, 2005

And this will be the last song for tonight – Sacrament of Wilderness! I write this brief entry on board a Danish train to Soro; the place Danes love to hear us attempt to pronounce, but unhelpfully seem to have a dozen ways of doing so themselves. The concert in Ribe cathedral went quite well, […]

Where have all the vowels gone?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2005

Where have all the vowels gone Long time passing? Where have all the vowels gone Long time ago? Where have all the vowels gone? Gone to Denmark every one! When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn? Out of the consonants and into the vowels, our journey has taken us to Denmark; a […]

Berlin

Sunday, July 10th, 2005

I have spent the last two nights in Berlin, having arrived after a long day’s travel from Gdansk in Poland. I have been billeted on my own with Frau Kender, whose 20 year-old son no longer lives with her. I spent the first evening catching up on much-needed emailage, before getting an early night’s sleep. […]

Olsztyn and Gdansk

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

Well, just a quick entry for today. Typing on the treo is getting tedious :p We arrived in Olsztyn yesterday after — well, that was yesterday’s effort. Thanks to 9 hours on the train back to Berlin, this should be a little longer. In Olsztyn, we stayed in a Polish 3-star hotel. By God did […]

Gaudy pleonastically superfluous tackiness

Tuesday, July 5th, 2005

Well, we arrived in our TPLPC to find the largest basillica in Poland. Mighty impressive. (The place is called Lichen if you want to look it up before I post pictures). By impressive, I do not mean a testament to architectural superiority or iconographic relevance. I mean huge, tacky, over the top and extremely masculine. […]
