In Windsor angekommen, konnten wir schon an der Flagge sehen, dass die Queen zu Hause war.  Überall in England sieht man derzeit die geschmückte Auslagen zum “Diamond Jubiliee” der Queen.  Auch wenn ich sonst mit Königinnen und Königen nichts am Hut hab, so muss ich sagen, egal ob Schweden oder England, wenn man erst mal dort ist, wird man doch angesteckt. Es war ein tolles Erlebnis.

Das Highlight des  wirklich viel zu kurzen Aufenthalts war die Parade bei Windsor Castle und als wir hörten, dass die Queen heute Soldaten ehrte, mussten wir natürlich zum Schloss. Gott sei Dank hatten wir unsere royalistische Freundin im Schlepptau, die den Weg kannte.

Als sich das Tor öffnete kamen ältere Soldaten in ihren Uniformen direkt auf uns zu, da wir bei ihrem Bus standen. Einer der alten Knaben streckte uns sogar die Zunge raus. Ich hab es gefilmt. Unsere royalistische angehauchte Freundin stand kurz vor dem Herzinfarkt und schwelgte so richtig in dem Erlebnis. “Dass ich das erlebe, mein Herz!” Ehrlicherweise muss ich sagen, uns erging es nicht anders. ;-)


The Queen was home to invite us for a cup of tea!

Wir Drei wären die perfekten Paparazzi für solche Angelegenheiten. Aber wir dachten zu spät daran unsere Bilder an die Tratschpresse zu verkaufen. :-) Schon schick, wenn die Damen ihre Hüte und Kostüme präsentieren, nicht wahr? Die Herren sind auch nicht zu verachten in ihren Fracks und goldenen Ketten um den Hals. Wer das wohl war? Vielleicht war’s der Bürgermeister von Windsor?

Neben der Queen auf ihrem Schlößchen erforschten wir auch die örtlichen Läden, vor allem Crabtree & Evelyn. Noch begeisterter bin ich, dass es in Deutschland einen Onlineshop gibt.Das hat wirklich Spaß gemacht an den verschiedenen Düften zu schnuppern. Unsere Geldbörsen erleichterten sich um einige Pfunde (britische). Wir lernten dort auch eine wirklich nette Verkäuferin kennen, die ursprünglich aus Italien kam und jetzt in England daheim ist.

Es gibt natürlich auch wie bei uns die üblichen Touristenläden.  Auch hier war alles darauf ausgerichtet mit dem Kronjubiläum der Queen Kasse zu machen.

Wie schon gesagt, mussten wir Windsor viel zu früh verlassen und weiterfahren. Bis zum nächsten Besuch bewacht Queen Victoria die Stadt.

Ich möchte anmerken, dass ich über die Reise nicht chronologisch berichte, sondern Querbeet.  Bis zum nächsten Beitrag. Ich hoffe, ihr habt Spaß beim Lesen.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
    work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    recession hairlines are usually seen in males above the
    ages of 20 but can be seen as early as late teens as well.
    This is because of the reduction in friction that the
    satin pillow brings. In order to clear the inflammation and acidity that can trigger alopecia,
    mint, dandelion, and honeysuckle herbs can be used
    in combination.

    First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    To hire a knowledge able and ethical car accident injury lawyer, it is best to check on his legal experience, and also have a close look at the
    track records of the accident cases he has won for his clients.
    They seem to have reached the limit of their propellant’s
    abilities. If you are familiar with any other
    attorney who practices in another area, you can always ask
    him for referral of an auto accident law firm.
