Fasnacht hit the Basel region this weekend and therefore it was a good reason to leave it! So for 36 hours we had a weekend away at Konstanz on the Bodensee, visiting the Sea Life centre and Insel Mainau. Next time we’ll have to stay a bit longer, and when it’s a but warmer!
First urbex of 2017, this time crawling around old houses and a chapel in France. See the trip reports here:

After a few weeks of snow, we elected to visit Papilorama, a tropical butterfly zoo located just outside Bern. The girls had fun playing with the butterflies and the bats in the noctural area. Well worth a visit on a lazy weekend. www.papilorama.ch
Visit the gallery here.
Recent snow meant that I could send the drone up for a test flight in the local area. I was quite impressed with the results, though obviously I need a lot more practice! More photos here: LINK
Santa brought a drone this Christmas! Stay tuned for gallery updates as I put this into the nearest tree 🙂
Summer vacation in Budapest. Third time I’ve been here but the first not for the Formula 1. Budapest is a lovely city and no doubt I’ll be back again for the Grand Prix in the future, though for this weekend I’ll have to make do with the Red Bull air race (pending the weather. It’s raining hard here this weekend!)
Photograph of the Schweizerbundestag Fireworks. Oddly, the fireworks occurred on the day before … 🙂
Partial solar eclipse happened over Europe today and I managed to get a few photos.
