Hello Andrews, yes it's good to go to places one always wanted to go at, the problem is that I simply want to go everywhere and all around :-D ! And no, my trips are holidays, or weekends, and unfortunatelly my boss does not pay for this, which is a real real shame !! I just have a discount-card for German Rail so that makes it easier to hop to Hamburg on a weekend, but that's really all.

Hi Andrews, been to HongKong, just for holidays, or with work ? It's fascinating really, some people do get really around :-)
And me ? Going to Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and various Baltic. Hm.. talk about being a bit narrow-sighted, is time probably to try something new ! 8-)
Christms will be spent at Hamburg though, I don't think I'll go shipspotting alot, but I think on one day for sure !

Hi Cornelia,

thankyou for your comments as always and yes i guess it is very clear to see that she doesnt have any handling gear!!

it has been a good week in southampton for new container vessels we have had NYK Oceanus,APL France & Hanover Express, i caught the first two so was pleased with that.
I have been on holiday to Hong Kong and its is taking me ages to sort through my photos! together with work commitments have not had a chance to look at the site or continue sorting this section, where does the time go!!

Andrew :-D
