          he is getting so grown up now, he will be off back to Australia in a few weeks... he is so tall for 12, hate to think what he will be like next time I see him.

            Hi all, just thought I'd let you know I've not vanished from this universe.
            Just been in Scandinavia for a while, I needed a break from the normal everyday humdrum and went to see my family out there.
            I managed to end up 37,000ft in the air, which in no small part was fuelled courtesy of Jack Daniels to get me over fear of flying. Yeah I know! That's me crapping myself! LOL
            Anyways, I'm back for a while until my wandering takes me elsewhere again.

                Thank you Cecilia, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just a shame it was over so quickly.
                Ah not so brave, but rather stewed! LOL

                Here I am just after take-off from Ringway Manchester, although I think it's only me that refers to it as Ringway these days!

                  Paul, what great news. You'll just have to do it again.
                  Lovely photo, I hope that will be the first of many?

                      Brave/stewed enough to look out of the window but not so over-stewed to have difficulty holding a camera steady!
                      Ah thrilled for you Paul, and, as Ivy says, maybe now you’ll do it again.
                      Love the photo. It has certainly been quite a week for photos in flight here on CVF!

                          Or rather just Willem...., as he himself wish for his fellow countrymen and women to use his first name when spoken to.
                          Congratulations though!!

                            yes thats right Svein,they (Willem and Maxima) had said,that they may call us,as the way they (the people) are feeling the best with it.

                            ''We do not adhere to Royal titles''

                            but i also think that he wont like to be called ''prins pils''

                              Prins Pils...., hahahahaha, that was a good one.

                              No, to be serious, I belive it's stupid of a King to tell his people to call him by first name(s).
                              Why?
                              In my opinion, there should (must) be a certain border, or rather a difference in levels between "ordinary" people and Royalty.
                              (I put ordinary in quotes because no one is ordinary...., each and every one are special......, but you see what I mean).

                                ''prins plis'' was and is stil a nick name of him.
                                he got it in the time that he was young and a party animal,and on most of the images he has a beer in his hand.

                                he/they said that when they call him King,majesty,highness,Willem-alexander,Willem he be okay with it.
                                he/they rather had that a ''ordinairy'' or ''nationals'' call hem with the name that they (locals) be feel happy.
                                and not that when they HAVE to call him majesty or king,and the ordinairy people can't say nothing anymore.
                                he wants that his ''nationals'' and the royals are close to each other.
                                they don't want the englisch royalty rules.
                                but i think that no one would call him with ,He You,come here.
