A collection of random thoughts, adventures, happenings and general goings on in the Gardner Family.
Prague

Prague

A long weekend in the Czech capital, sampling the architecture, history and beer.

Madeira

Home of fortified wines and some spectacular scenery. We found some pretty good weather too.

Sharm el Sheikh

Sharm el Sheikh

Chillin’ by the beach. With some diving, sunbathing, and a day out at a historic monastery.

Cairo

Cairo

Very well arranged piles of rock, and some old stuff in glass cases. And a posh hotel.

On Honeymoon

On Honeymoon

Nearly three weeks in Egypt by way of a little honeymoon celebration. It took “hot” to a whole new level.

Crete

Crete

In August 1999 Kas and me spent a week in Crete – our first ever “proper” summer holiday together. It was warm and sunny and very picturesque.

Portuguese Cities

Portuguese Cities

In summer 1999 I was working with a petroleum refining company in Portugal. At one point I had to spend one week in Porto then the next in Lisbon, so Kas came to see me at the weekend.

Round the Matterhorn

Round the Matterhorn

Kas and me went skiing early in 1999 in Cervinia, which is just on the Italian side of the Matterhorn. From there you can ski across into the Swiss resort of Zermatt too.
