Hi Ian,I know this place,yes wonderful COPENHAGEN!GGR.

Leo Laps on January 25, 2009

And I wonder if I will see it. It all depends on those guys from the Arhos University...

How are you, my friend? We are missing you and Australia as well, and I really think we might go back soon...

Finally, I managed some time to upload my trip~s pics. I am starting from the beggining, which means that my Sydney pictures will be on the web till the end of the week.

I have to tell you the news: I am doing some freelance jobs for some magazines, but on february I will start to teach English here in Blumenau. Isn´t it awesome? And, in a couple of days, me and Carol we will move to a good apartment in the city, it will be so pleasant to have a place for us again...

Say hello to Margareth and Cindy, please! And a big hug for you, from me and Carol!

Dear Leo and Caroline,

It would be wonderful if you do get to Denmark and especially to Aarhus, as you dream.

Your news is very good news, and I sense you are chuffed, really chuffed about becoming an English teacher. Remember that either in Denmark or here in Australia you will get plenty of opportunity to further develop your English. What an experience you have had.

From Whitehaven Beach to North Stradbroke ocean beaches you have seen some of the very best beaches in the world, that will compare with the special beaches of Brazil. I didn't know you had done some underwater photography while you were here, and they are great to see.

As you settle into your new apartment i trust it very quickly becomes a special home, and that you are able to settle, though I know how much the wanderlust can continue to course through your veins.

Best regards from Margaret and me,

Beautiful contuor visible through the fog. I especially like the green haze of leaves, Yan!

Warm regards, Eva

Ian Stehbens on January 28, 2009

Thanks for your careful viewing of this photo, Eva. Spring had just begun. It was still quite cold but nevertheless it was a gentle time to be in Copenhagen.

Superb. I didn't see it in fog, which makes it mistic - only bright autimn sun. Olga

Ian Stehbens on January 29, 2009

I think you perceive what I saw, Olga, for the greys of the stone work and the light fog emphasise each other, and the tracery of new green foliage promises a new season. Thanks for your visit and comment.

Hi there, Ian! You are so close to Poland, you have to visit Tymbark absolutely! :-)

I see you mention about Aarhus. I have a friend in Aarhus, she will arrive in Poland in April. It's a really beautiful town


Ian Stehbens on January 30, 2009

Dear Rafal,

O how I would love to come to Malopolske... right to Tymbark. That will have to be realised one day. This photo was taken in 2005 on my last visit to DK, S, D, GB & IRL. Right now I am in Sydney and soon to retire. The person who will be replacing me as Principal, commences on Monday, and we will overlap for a month before I am free.

Then in retirement, there will be many new opportunities, and some of those will include travel. Because I have ancestors who came from Poland in the 1860's I am both interested to explore Poland but sad that there isn't more known about their Polish origins or history.

Maybe one day I will drive into Tymbark!

Best regards, and hopes,


Rafal Ociepka on January 30, 2009

I've got you promise, one day you'll be here! :-)

When do you move to Brisbane?

Kind regards from winter Poland :-)

Ian Stehbens on January 30, 2009

And I have posted my reply, a timetable of dreams, Rafal. You will have to print it and pin it to a noticeboard so you don't get a surprise! Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Tymbark with a local guide, one day?


Ed. Rodríguez Prati on January 30, 2009

I like it very much Ian, a perfect composition and great atmosphere... A YS for it! Best wishes my friend, Edmundo

Ian Stehbens on January 30, 2009

Thanks Edmundo for the YS. I really do appreciate the affirmation. This set of Danish photos was taken in 2005, but I didn't think they were worthy of Panoramio till recently. I saw this come up on my screen saver and I thought that is better than I thought it was so I went back to see what I had passed over.

And I think of you often, for many reasons. But certainly when I am taking people to see some of the architecture around here, such as to St Patrick's Cathedral, I feel so much more informed by your architectural education of me. I was there again yesterday.

Kind regards,


Ed. Rodríguez Prati on January 30, 2009

Thanks to you Ian for remembering me, it's great how this place has gathered people from different places in real fiendship! My best regards, Edmundo

Ian Stehbens on January 30, 2009

I certainly value your friendship highly, Edmundo. Thanks.



Amelia Royan on February 1, 2009

Wonderful wonderful Copenhagen ... and even more wonderful retirement Ian. I know you will love it, so many opportunities, so much to do, so much to learn, so much to see. You'll wonder how you ever made time to go to work :)

Greetings dear friend, Amelia

Ian Stehbens on February 1, 2009

Dear Amelia,

It is nice to know you are home again, and the winter has been kind to you. And it is good to connect with you again on some common ground a la Copenhagen. Retirement is coming, and I am counting down, but exactly what lies ahead will energe as we go. I hope there is some great opportunities for travel.

Warmest wishes,


PS: I have seen your uploads but I have to cycle through the list of favourites, but I will get there. Promise. Ian
