February 2020

This week I renewed my business insurance with Ashley @_withjack. Personal, informative and helpful customer service, and policies that are competitive and comprehensive. What’s not to love!?

Spent much of today aboard trains going in the wrong direction, i.e. headed towards home. But! I get to spend all day tomorrow here in Cologne, which makes me very happy (as does the Kölsch).

Taking advantage of the flexibility of my Interrail pass, and spending an extra day in Oslo. High probability I may never leave at all.

Surprisingly emotional as I visit the grave of George Bradshaw in Oslo. As fate would have it, the old town’s graveyard is sat right next to a railway.

Headstone reads: “In loving memory of George Bradshaw of Manchester, England who died at Christiania September 6th 1853 aged 53 years”.

After a week of grey, horrid weather, the clouds lift and blue skies finally appear over Stockholm. In this part of Europe at least, all is bright and well.
