It is a bit scary to watch video from 20 years ago and have forgotten most of it except for actually having done it. Flash Craicback to 1986 when I went to visit my cousin in Mons Belgium. The trip started off in London for a weekend, accompanied by my good friend Cynthia. Big memory was going to see the Dallas Cowboys play Chicago Bears at the old Wembley Stadium. Then it was off to Belgium via a ferry on the English Channel from Dover to
Ostend Belgium. Sad to report, this ferry ride only serves freight now. It was a beautiful August day and I was lugging around old school 2 piece video equipment. I wasted a lot of battery power from train rides, then overcharged the battery the first week. No footage of the next 3 weeks in Amsterdam, Brussels, Gent, or Frankfurt. London 1986…to be continued.
