Throttleman will be on the move... I'M BACK!

That's it. :D Next Friday I'll be traveling to Edinburgh and I'll meet Neil in the end of the afternoon. :) Then we'll drive to England on Monday and meet a lot of you for the first time! :)

  • Leaving at 7am from Porto to Lisbon by train (funny, the train his called "Alfa")
  • Meeting Sérgio (aka Montreal) at 10:15 and have brunch with him at the aiport :)
  • Flight to Gatwick at 13:50;
  • Get the connection flight to Edinburgh and arrive around 19:40
I've checked the weather forcast and it doesn't promiss anything special. How's the temperature over there guys and girls? Usually I'm not chilly but I guess there's also a lot of wind... would the AO fleece and a good vest (and...) keep me warm? ;)

Ooohhh and I need to exchange € to £... :rolleyes: :D ;)

No doubt about the enthusiasm ;) But that's also a chance to visit Schotland. :)

if you get a chance, goto Glasgow and ask for a Glasgow kiss from some of the local birds ;)

Bird kisses are very welcome! I'll see what it's possible at Edinburgh. ;)

James, I'll follow your advise and take my Throttleman waterproff jacket. :)

9º, 14º are fine. It's us we are having here now. Yesterday and 2 days ago was less then that with a terrible wind... almost 100km/h.

Good ;)

Be shure to visit Scotland!
Of course! :D At least the way down from Edinburgh :cool:

And dont forget, take loads of pictures!! :cool:
That's impossible for me to forget. I'm worst then a Jap. :D
I'll take with me 32mb + 256mb + 128mb cf cards. I think it's enough to shot around 400 photos in max resolution. :)

Besides, 2 sets of 4 AA recargeable batteries + on set of 4 AA alkaline (just in case)
