My film “Septemberfest” presents all of Germany’s best known places: Frankfurt’s old town, a Rhine River cruise, Cologne’s Cathedral, the Hamburg
red-light district, Berlin (The Wall, and other changes since 1990), lovely Dresden, Nuremberg, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, Munich
(glockenspiel, beer hall, and palaces), plus King Ludwig II’s most famous castle.

Hi Intrep, welcome back, I really enjoy your travels.
Good to see you again, Intrep! When are you going to do one down under? I can recommend many nice places down here!
I went to Australia back in 1994, on a safari that featured wildlife. My video of that trip is "Kangaroo From Kakadu". You might consider watching this film.
Although it's even further south, New Zealand is probably not considered "down under". Just came back from there, beginning work on editing "North and South Kiwi". Completion date on this 35th video is unknown.
The Intrepid Berkeley Explorer
I doubt my suitcase is suitable. It's small and so terribly banged up after more than 20 years of hard labor.
I can't believe Disney want to snatch "the little mermaid" from Copenhagan Oops that's right you were joking lol.
"76 trombones" was a blast from the past Some of those buildings are an achitecture's delight .
In '94 I was living and working in Darwin, pity I didn't know you then. I'll definately look up your Kangaroo from Kakadu video. Did you take in Litchfield as well? IMO it's much better. Did you visit other parts of OZ, too?
Among the many places in Oz not part of that 1994 trip were Litchfield and all of the west.
But it felt like I did OK in the east, center, north (Darwin), and south. Let me know what you think of the video.
The termite mounds in Queensland are the little ones.
There are many pubs that are worth visiting, Barrow Creek and Daly Waters are real outback pubs that also serve as the local bank. Write your name upon the note and pin it to the wall!
I've seen water in the Tod River on several occasions.
Kangaroo Island is closer to 2000 miled south of Darwin and a lot closer to where I now live. (about 100 miles sw).
Your video dropped out at that point which was disappointing as it was good to see an "outsiders" viewpoint. I'm guessing that you flew to many of your featured destinations. There is much more to see "on the road" which would give you a different perspective of the Australian Outback. I am a tad envious, however. How many banks did you have to rob to spend your life travelling the world?
I'm glad you were able to see some of "Kangaroo From Kakadu".
There are some bandwidth limitations on broadband service in Australia which can prevent streaming videos like mine from being viewed. Australians have told me that films fail to even start. The details have never been clear, but involve the kind of plan people signed up for. Often everything works fine.
The rumor that I joined up with Bonnie and Clyde to fund these trips is untrue. Here are the facts.
I had a civil service job as an attorney for a California state agency that lasted nearly 22 years. With a professional salary and generous vacation time, which I carefully used only for trips; taking advantage of every option that allowed for more vacation hours, it was easy to develop a pattern of about two trips a year starting in 1990. My companion from that time on has been a video camera.
After retiring from my job in 2002, I made the jump from analog to digital, put every film on the internet, and kept on traveling.
Thanks for that bit of info, Dave. Enjoy the travelling! My sister is currently swanning around America (I think) at the moment, they were in Croatia a couple of months back, and am unsure if they'll be home for Christmas. They spent Christmas in Antarctica and South America a couple of years back. I'd like to travel a bit more, but SWMBO's health and my own finances prevent it for the moment,
