"... 's on the Road Again", lalala

©Brigitta Huegel

Dear You, 

I'm so sorry: I really had no time - neither to write, nor to read your blogs or to comment.

"Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty, but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history."

Robert Kennedy said it in his speech in Cape Town in June 1966.
Please wish me creative energy.
I'm about to leave on Monday, together with my lovely daughter-in-love (yes, yes, I know the right expression - but I prefer this beautiful phrase coined by Susan).
Imagine: We'll go to New York!!!! (Only for a week, but nevertheless)
(Husband in Berlin and her husband - my lovely son - in Munich) will house-sit, while we are having fun.
And then, back again, after a very short pause I'll visit Crete for two weeks.

See my long-known photograph above, which I took years ago in the Victoria and Albert Museum?
It became a sort of emblem for me - and I love it!


  1. Well have a fantastic vacation both of you. It is such fun to go exploring with someone you enjoy.

  2. I completely echo Emma; what fun to go about with a kindred spirit.

  3. Dear Britta - Have a wonderful trip with your daughter in love to New York - how exciting for you two girls to be out on the town together. After the short pause, will husband be joining you on the visit to Crete?

  4. I have not visited New York in over 50 years. Be careful of the nuns --they used to ram right into me on crowded sidewalks and make me feel bad. Surely things have improved. Have fun!

  5. Oh yes, those nuns. Happy gallivanting, Britta! No better woman to represent Europe in America and bedazzle the New Yorkers with your old world flair. Have a lovely trip! Two trips!

  6. Someone had better warn New York in advance that you are coming! I had some adventures there myself many years ago. Enjoy. And then chill out in Crete. And then come back and see us all!x

  7. Enjoy both of your trips Britta - look forward to hearing all about it on your return.

  8. Have a safe trip, and see you soon@

  9. Have fun!! It will be fun to read all about it on your return!

  10. What fun!! Enjoy every minute! Sending you good wishes for safe travels! Can't wait to hear about your NYC days!

  11. I hope your trip is fantastic. Keep us posted.

  12. I hope you enjoy your travels and bring back lots of interesting stories to share. Be safe!
