Mr. Carrot

Provided I get in, My special knowledge revolves around Norway... Especially the south-eastern part of Norway, around Oslo and Drammen...

Yes, Gnomon, I've noticed that you allready specialize in Norway, but I figured that we might be able to "fill each other in" on some more specific fields?

Hi Number Six, I just noticed you added me on the list under Brazil, so smiley - ta
I hope I'll get to writing about it sometime... right now I'm just concentrating on places I know well.
Which brings up a question: I haven't seen Israel in the list - is it there? smiley - huh

Gnomon - time to move on

That's OK, Mr Carrot. When I say I specialise in it, I just mean I've been there once. But if you know me, that usually means I can write quite a detailed entry on it. But I'll be glad to bow to your superior knowledge.

Number Six

Yael - I was meaning to ask you about that... geographically, would you place Israel in Asia? I know it's not exactly the case politically or in sporting terms (your football teams play in all the European club and International competitions) so I thought I'd better check!

smiley - mod

Lady Pennywhistle - Back with a vengeance! [for a certain, limited value of Vengeance; actual amounts of Vengeance may vary]

Yeah, I know it's a tricky one... We're definitely not Europe, though we pretend we are (hence football and basketball clubs). Africa only starts after the Suez Canal, so I guess geographically we're in Asia.
A different solution would be to open up a "Middle East" section, that will include Israel and Egypt. I'm not sure it's a good idea, but it's still an option...
I hope that helped. smiley - smiley

The Land's End of Europe.

Hey, I posted here yesterday, but find that although it is in my list it isn't here - and I can't remember all I wrote. Must have hit the back button.

Anyway for Watermusic

London and South U.K. - though it would have to be geographical!
Portugal - especially the Western Algarve (The West of the West)smiley - cool

Woops! Sorry folks. The brain has just chuntered into logical mode. Did not notice the reply links buttons on the right hand side, so now I have repeated myself a little. I didn't make it to the most recent page.

My actual reports will be 'live' from South Korea.
In the near future I hope to be able to cover a bit of HongKong where I'll try to be over the summer months.

My most recent travels brought me to Morocco and Japan.
About my home country I can provide information on its capital, Berlin, and Hamburg.

And as for Great Britain I suppose the Brits around us are more likely to know the good stuff - but you never know. So, London, Northern Scotland and Ireland - I know some spots over there, too.

Older information I could possibly give on Scandinavia incl. Denmark. I lived in Denmark for three months, working on a farm, and travelled to the rest of Scandinavia several times.

In fact, I travelled pretty much all expect Iceland, Spain and Portugal in West Europe.

...and this is how the ookie crumbles.

Well, I'm saying 'member' but have actually only recently signed up and am awaiting confirmation that I have been accepted into said establishment (and maybe a shiny badge to prove it).

Nevertheless, the time I have to fill this in is now, so here you go, if you want it:

South Yorkshire
South-West Germany (specifically Tuebingen area)
Yaroslavl, Russia

Some of these will be more 'specialist' than others!

OK, well I can do:

North West England
and bits and pieces of Yorkshire, Cornwall and various places scattered around France. Will definitely do one on Rouen when I finish working there this summer.
Hopefully in the next year or so I'll be able to do some on various places in Russia.
