Ian Scott-Parker writes: When I owned a VW camper, my buddy Robert always referred to it as the "VWW". One day I finally cracked, and asked why "VWW", to which he responded with a triumphantly smirking "Van With Windows". As a twice blessed VW owner, 'Flippi' (the nom de web of Philipp Mohr, who lives in Neuenhof in the canton of Aargau in Switzerland) gives readers a much less groanworthy explanation of his nickname. Flippi travels widely in his VW, recording his journeys on the Flippi.net web site.
As regular readers will know, we enjoy a good web photo travelog, often returning to visit Andrew Leaney, Erik Gauger, Don Burluraux, Dave Newton,and many others. We chose Flippi's trip to Iceland, which began with a wise traveller's first move, the route checking with a map. We decided on a picture of Smögen in Sweden, taken during Flippi's hop-skip-and-jump journey through five northern European countries. Lots here to enjoy. [Thanks to Eric Shackle for the lead.]
