  1. wonderful tribute to XANTEN!
    no time limits for my A-z photo challenges …

  2. That is really a long time ago. Wonderful photos. 🙂

  3. Great shots Martin and I am sure it is as lovely now as i looks to have been then though to tell you the truth, twenty years ago doesn’t seem so long ago!

  4. These give me itchy feet, Martin. I long to go travelling once more. And well done for finding an ‘X’!

  5. Xanten! OMG — we were there, with a dear German friend, oh at least then, maybe when you were there?
    Saw the big Roman archaological site, and a small church with whimsical brass sculptures on the altar table, etc. of forest creatures, enchanting. I especially loved the hedgehog.

  6. ‘X’quisite, Martin!

  7. Looks like a lovely placeMartin. I’m still way behind in all my blog reading. Just been so busy lately. Only posting twice a week now.

    • Err… that should be “place (PRESSING SPACEBAR this time) Martin”

      • I really wordpress.com had comment editing like I’ve got on my site

      • Drats… It should read “I really WISH wordpress.com had comment editing like I’ve got on my site

      • Hi Tony – I understand your angst… Don’t you just love recalcitrant keyboards 😉 I wouldn’t worry too much about typo’s mate – everyone makes them. Your comments are always welcome with or without them 🙂

        I too have been busy and find myself playing catch-up. The good thing is that I’ve been spending more time that is free on the Radio and that should give me material for Y 😉

  8. love the pics xjen

  9. Amazing, adventurous images.

  10. Great X photos! And to have them for 20 years, that’s pretty cool.
