Volcano Cloud

Why yes, Anni and I have been, like basically everyone else here in Europe, affected by the Volcano cloud. We were supposed to be (and hopefully still will be) travelling to Istanbul, around Turkey, and then to Gallipoli for the Anzac Day dawn service. Fingers crossed...
I think it's hilarious that a volcano cloud rules over Europe, stopping all air traffic. Although it's not funny because there are thousands upon thousands of people who depend on the movement of air traffic through Europe, but still, it is kinda funny.
So we've been just chillaxing. Had a picnic in the park on Saturday afternoon, slept all day Sunday in the backyard. Anni's ankle and foot is huge, so it's probably a good thing we didn't fly on Saturday because now it's had time to settle down and hopefully get better.
So here's to hoping the next update will be about Anzac Day Dawn Service in Gallipoli. Otherwise, Anni has flight credit with Swiss Air and we will be travelling somewhere for a week because we can.

Budapest and Bratislava

Holidays have been far between for me and Anni... The long cold London winter has taken its toll.
However, Easter came upon us, and in celebration of our Lord Jesus Christ dying and rising again for us, we went to Budapest!
The beautiful split city has so much interesting history with an interesting mix of modern and upcoming futuristic displays, you never want to leave! I wish Anni didn't have to go to work...
I got my feet wet in the Danube, and saw some amazing buildings (as is usual in Europe). Anni went to a party in the baths, and came in very late (or early, depends...).
Easter Monday we went to Bratislava as that was where we flew back to London from. It was wet and rainy, but that didn't stop us having a little bit of fun.
So the next trip is Turkey in about twelve days...!
