Next was the Thai Embassy and again it involved several calls to get the information we needed, but unfortunately not what we had expected. It is very costly to get a years visa if one is under 50 years of age, so back to the drawing board. The result is: We are leaving Berlin at the end of April with our Camper Van, travelling firstly through Germany, saying our good - byes to friends and relatives. Beginning of May we shall then travel on to the UK to see Fiona's mum and family; again to say farewell. Whenever we have enough of England or the chance for a cheap flight we then move on to Malaysia (on entry a 3 Month Visa) make a couple of Visa runs which will the mean I am 50 which will make it possible to get a 1 year visa for Thailand.
In between all these problems we had a broken water pipe in our flat, resulting in water dripping from the ceiling. it is repaired now, but the walls are wet and we are slowly getting mould on there. It is definitely time to leave soon. So far my update, all this is absolutetly backed up by the weather, gray, cold, snow or rain. Not very nice at all, but we are still going and that is a nice feeling.
