And we're off tomorrow. By popular demand, this will be in a YetiBlog® format - so you can all enjoy this trip with me.

The plan:
Tomorrow evening I leave for Berlin. I will be busy all of the 30th with work and then 31st will be the opening of the IFA.

On the 1st and 2nd I will be at IFA2007. Free and easy on the 3rd of September in Berlin. I will have broadband access on all these days. On the 4th I will begin my Holiday by travelling to Hungary. No computer - are you crazy?
I hear Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities of the world. I intend to find out, armed with my Nikon D40.

On the 6th I will leave for Paris (via Berlin) where I catch up with some old friends, travel through Lyon and Marseille - following the international Rugby league. I don't know squat about Rugby but we will find out together.

As usual you are all invited to interject with your comments and your identifications of the beautiful cars - I know as much about cars as rugby, lol.

While there will be many car and motorcyle photos for your viewing pleasure, there will be many irrelevant and irreverent posts. I thank all of you and especially the mods in advance for the flexibility that you offer me out of affection.

Let's have some fun boys

That was really a very nice one. Couldn't agree more, but, wish I could satisfy the criteria.
