Latest travel update. (1st October 2021)

I’ve just returned from two wonderful weeks of travelling around part of Denmark with my beautiful Greek girlfriend, Tatiana – who is also totally blind. We had a fantastic time visiting various places in Copenhagen, Denmark’s chaotic and relaxed Capital before visiting other historical cities. This included Helsingor at the top of the island of Zealand, with its wonderful (Hamlet) Kronborg Castle – a UNESCO Site. A short train journey took us to Roskild with it’s famous Viking Ship Museum, before continuing to Odense, home of famous fairy tail writer, Hans Christian Andersen. Finally, we walked the many cobbled streets of Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city, on Jutland, which boasts the country’s longest and highest cathedral. We had help from so many lovely, kind and warm Danish people and tasted many different foods. These included: Smørrebrød (open sandwich),with various toppings, The rød pølse (red sausage), usually served inside a fresh bun with ketchup and/or mustard on top. On our second evening in the country, we were invited to a friend’s home to sample the now popular national dish, Stegt flæsk med persillesovs – a pork based meal! Our final evening was spent in the enjoyable company of a Danish blind friend, Robin Cocks, who works as a presenter and interviewer for several Danish radio stations. He’s about to embark on a journey around Uganda and make a film documentary. We met in Vivaldi Cafe, a notable restaurant chain located throughout Denmark. It’s quite an expensive establishment, but serves fresh and tasty food. Now Tatiana and I are back in Athens, Greece. I will stay here for a few more weeks then return to England to plan my next trips. Happy travels, Tony :).

Tony in Denmark (23rd September 2021)

Tony listening to the wonderful sound of falling water from a large bowl-shaped fountain on Skomagergade (Shoemakers Street) in the centre of the Denmark city of Roskilde. It’s an ancient city on the west side of the island of Zealand. Roughly 30 km (20 miles) west of Copenhagen, capital of Denmark. It’s a late sunny afternoon. The large fountain has two bowls, the large one where Tony is standing and a smaller one above where water is cascading off. A lovely sight and sound.

Videos from a visit to the Roman Baths, Bath, England (21st May 2021)

Tony listening to the Hot spring (Sacred spring) at the ancient Roman Baths in the city of Bath, Southwest England, 18th May 2021.
Another video of Tony with his mum at the wonderful Hot spring at the Roman Baths, Bath, England. This natural hot spring heated the baths and pools at this ancient temple complex for bathers and worshippers who bathed naked and relaxed and meditated in various small hot pools and swam in and relaxed around the Great Bath, which back then, was roofed. The sound of the hot spring and the warmth of its temperature is delightful.
