About Me

We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.

Samsø, friendly island

After Cris and Rosi's visit we had a week to wait before the Eslöv fly in and some planning to do. So Samsø seemed an ideal destination. We had hoped to outrun the weather, but were unsuccessful in this respect, so ended up sitting in the clubhouse with the Morsø iron wood burner running of an evening, so cosy. We luckily were in time to catch the airfield manager, Rune before he went to Australia to have a go on some sea planes. Rune is one of the most energetic and enthusistic people you can imagine, I'm looking forward to his scheduled sea plane service between Samsø, Århus and Copenhagen it's a brilliant idea.

We went and helped out at the school fête on the Saturday. Well, when I say helped: I played with Mille (Rune and Eva's very cute, very determined daughter) letting her parents work. That's good being helpful, right?

Last year we were interested to discover that a Venetian couple, Lorenzo and Valentina, had moved to Samsø and opened an Italian food store. This year their plans have moved along, with a new location and soon to be opened cafe and Gelateria. Mmmm. We wish them well in their endeavour, Cafe Tua. We tried to take them for a fly, but the weather was inclement.
