well the wait is over, at last I have made the trip back , courtesy of Hans and Marco and their friends and families, a big thanks to them
and a fantastic time was had, from overnight driving on thursday, arriving in Hamburg friday afternoon for a quick look round along the waterfront, saw the QM2 in dock, then up to Schleswig-Holstein to meet with the Banditos. My friend who drove wanted to spend tourist time in Hamburg, so left me there, with a big box of toys,,, Mistake no.1,,, I should never have thought it would be a good idea to take such rarities,
Mistake no.2 was my present for Hans and Marco, a Moko dolls house, the look we got from Heike, Hans's wife was great, not what I expected, then time for toys talking and whiskey, and I took both volumes of Robert Newsons book to look thru, great stuff.
Back to Marco's with Janine and their son Tom, where I was staying and actually sleeping in his toyroom,
After a late start, mistake no. 3,,, offering to come and help in the garden centre, at least I was getting paid 2 euros, but never saw them
In the evening a fab BBQ and watching the England match,,, mistake no.4,,, but then meeting old friends Gerd and another collector, Dirk who has an amazing collection and lots more toy talk.
Sunday after meeting another old friend Arnos, was more toys talk pics and some Hard negotiating, followed by a trip with Marco to Dirks then being picked up for the homeward leg, thru to home monday morning,,, WOWWWW
Many Many Thanks
