What with all the pre-Deutschland reading and the post-Deutschland blogging, I managed to stretch my fortnight’s holiday into a 3-month Germanophile indulgence. But it is now time to say goodbye (temporarily, of course) and start meandering back to Scotland. In just 5 days, the marquees in Charlotte Square will open for business, the Edinburgh Book Festival begins.
But before my attention reverts northwards, let me just post a couple of photographs that I wish I had taken. Perhaps I’ll know how to take breathtaking shots like these the next time I visit. In the meantime I’ll print them out to stick in my photograph album (and there’s your book-related link to legitimise this post.)
Only one thing wrong with the last photo. The plane is taking off not landing. Oh, be still my aching heart …..
