London and Paris Holiday 2010 [01:52:04]
London and Paris Holiday 2010 This particular film portrays an adventure enhanced from the Köhler family at the city of London and Paris. The day we flew to London was during the 2010 soccer world cup on the match between South Africa and Mexico. The match resulted in South Africa drawing with Mexico and there was an enormous crowd cheer t Johannesburg Or Tambo International Airport South Africa, which is where we were flying. The airline we flew to London was Iberia; the national carrier of Spain and the plane we flew in was an Airbus A340-600. Since we were flying at night and there was no fear of been jetlagged we slept throughout the flight. When we got to Madrid International Airport Spain we took a connecting flight on an Airbus A321 to London Heathrow International Airport. After we arrived from the airport our friend Mignon drove us to East Putney where we stayed in a flat and it was amazing. Later we were given the surprise of going to Disney Land Resort Paris a day later. We were all excited for the trip, we boarded the Euro Star which took us from London Grand Central Station to the main train station in Paris France. From there we boarded another train to Disney Land Resort Paris. We stayed at a 2 star hotel known as Sante Fe. We went on all sorts of rides in the park like the Hollywood tower and the space mountain mission 2. The Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show is a performance show at the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park in Lake Buena Vista ...
De Waterkant Kaapstad - Capetown - Kapstadt South Africa [05:57]
De Waterkant is, in truth, a modernised rendition of the Bo-Kaap and lies just next to this same suburb, a trendy area that has maintained, and even accentuated, the colourful, bright semi-detached houses - restoring them into fashionable cottages that, together with the cobbled, tree-lined streets and spectacular views, bring to mind New York's Greenwich Village and London's Soho. The De Waterkant Village - now as many as 80 properties within walking distance of restaurants, the Cape Quarter shopping centre and local entertainment - is regarded as a resort-type experience, although this does the charming, character-full village an injustice. The bright, 18th century cottages are given over to guest houses offering authentic 'local' living and nestling on the lower slopes of Signal Hill overlooking Table Bay.
A4 60009 on The Cumbrian Mountain Express on Sat 1st Sept 2012. [03:39]
LNER A4 60009 Union of South Africa was given the honours of hauling the last Cumbrian Mountain Express of the Summer of 2012. The tour run by The Railway Touring Company was running from Crewe to Carlisle via Manchester, Clitheroe and The Settle and Casrlisle Railway and returning via Shap and the wcml. We first see 60009 on the outward leg with Twelve on the hook climbing Rimington Bank then we see The A4 at Helwith Bridge getting into her stride for the long drag. Thanks to all involved with the tours this Summer and it was also nice to see Idris and Steve at Helwith Bridge. Hope you enjoy.
