So last week Lloyd had been to Venice and Vienna, which he said is his favourite place so far. He had been to Prague, where he told me they went into the woods one night for a good meal, dancing and drinking. I'm left wondering if he's joined a cult.
He had a visit to Hundertwasser House which is a pretty amazing place in Vienna. Its a bright, quirky apartment building with uneven floors, an earth and grass roof and trees growing in rooms out the windows.
Since then he's been to Munich, (maybe a visit to a beer hall), then on to the Swiss Alps for a couple of days and a train trip through the Eiger Mountain.
Then it was back to Germany and a visit to Heidelberg and a trip to Lorelei. Had to look Lorelei up. Apparently Lorelei was a beautiful young maiden who committed suicide because of an unfaithful lover, by jumping from the rock. She then became a siren, luring shipmen to their deaths with her hypnotising voice.
Then he went over the Dutch border to Amsterdam. Hmmmm. They were going to a cheese farm, because his girlfriend is a mad cheese fan. He actually gave her a cheese platter for her christmas present last year.
Hard to believe a month has gone already.
