Christmas markets in Cologne, Germany

I went with some friends and had a wonderful day, in total we visited 4 out of the 6 markets, they are all in walking distance but a small "train" rides between them as well.
I can recommend these markets to everyone. They are beautiful and fun. There is lots of fantastic food and drinks as well as decorations and gifts one can buy.

To give everyone an impression I made some photies :)

Some dead animals at the medieval market, I hope the skunk protested *G*

I'm back...

Uh well actually I'm already back for a week, but I took some time to resettle and cuddle my dogs and guinea pigs.

The last 3 months were great at Writtle, I learned a lot, made lots of new friends from all over the world and I had lots of fun.

I managed some nice pictures of the Muscovy ducks and one of Tippy as well as one of a fairy ring of mushrooms.

Enjoy :)

This one is not so sharp but Peking duck looks very nice on it

And last but not least, one of my Jack Russells' looking cute

Cambridge trip

Hi everyone,

finally some pictures again, Blogspot was not cooperating, so sorry for the delay. None the less, on Saturday we went to Cambridge. It was very good weather and there was lots to see and do. A friend and I also discovered the best bookshop (Heffers) in the world, where we lost each other for 15 minutes *G*
Being Cambridge they have lots of colleges in beautiful old buildings, Writtle college is noting compared to those student accommodations.

Well enjoy the pictures,

A nice clock at some other college, and also a beautiful sky

This reminded me of Lord of the Rings, but perhaps I've just got to much imagination

Busy, busy, busy.....

It is just two more weeks and than my term in England is over. In the mean while I do not really have much time to post much. Although I do have some nice pictures I made a week ago. I will post those in a week or so. Cause this week I have to hand in two more assignments and do two presentations on them.

So just be patient and more posts will come,

The last few weeks have been very abundant in posts, especially in pictures. Here are some more pics of some lovely dogs I met last week in Scotland.


Nanook aka The Noo, the Muzzle is not because he is dangerous, he is to silly for that, but it is because he wants Max's Alpha position.

Jess, she always looks like a devil, but she is really a sweetheart.

Max, a dog that loves to devour wood.

Colchester Zoo

Two days ago we went to Colchester Zoo, because of our Behaviour (Ethology) class.
We had a very good guide that told us a lot about the animals and the enrichment of their enclosures. Because of all the talking I didn't really have time to take a lot of pictures, but when we got to the Canadian Timber Wolves, I kind of went crazy. I always do when I see wolves, so I grabbed my camera and shot as many pictures as I could. Unfortunately the windows of the enclosure where old and dirty, so I had to enhance all the decent pics in photoshop.
There was one alpha pair and 3 pups of this year, they had just been fed so they were all excited.

Hi everyone,

This weekend I went to a very good friend who lives up in Scotland. The perfect holliday for in between assignments for the master course I'm currently doing.

The weekend was full of fun and amazing views, so I've got some nice pics.


This picture was taken from the place where we parked the car, the top of the Buachaille Etive Beag is the one furthest away and in the middle of the picture.

Just to make sure you all believe I really climbed that mountain *G*
