Back to blogging!

Hi all,

The other day I returned from my holiday in Wales. It was a nice experience. Me and my travel mate Eric visited a lot of nice sites such as:



  • Shrewsbury, birthplace of Charles Darwin
  • Abergavenny, at the south-east edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • The Sugar Loaf, one of the high summits in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Cardiff, where I actually got sunburned and, last but not least, had the opportunity to meet up with chess friend SonofPearl and his wife
  • Bwlch near Brecon, from where I climbed the Pen-y-Fan in rain, wind and dense fog, the highest summit of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Porthmadog, from where we took the railway to Blaenau Ffestiniog
  • Betws-y-Coed, which is Welsh for:”Sanctuary in the woods”, and a beautiful place
  • Mount Snowdon from where we could not see Ireland and the Isle-of-Man due to mist ;-(
  • Conwy, with it’s huge castle

I had hoped to do some blogging from abroad, but had password problems… Probably something to so with different character sets or keyboard settings?

Anyway, I’m hoping to catch up a little now and might do some videos on the International Tournament in Biel where Magnus Carlsen is one of the participants.

It’s good to be back!

    You put me to shame Waldemar – I haven’t seen many of those places myself! I’m glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to reading more of your blog now that you’re back home.

    Funny you should have visited Charles Darwin’s birthplace. I’m reading “Origin of Species” at the moment. The guy’s is as good a writer as I had been told.
