Dortmund!

A sad night for Dortmund. The BVB, the local football team, lost in the Champions League Finale against Bavaria Munich. First time that two German teams were in the final, an exciting and quiet balanced match, all happening in England. And Munich wins – what a shame. I moved to Dortmund in 1995 and stayed for four good years. Great people, and an infectious excitement everywhere for the football club. I had bought the Old Lady, my first kombi van, just before I moved to Dortmund. Below is a snapshot from 1999, proudly taken on the day I had installed the spare wheel on the front. Nice Dortmund registration. Triggered the occasional smile with custom officers…

Looks like a great bus. Do you know where it is now? Sorry to hear about your football club.

Thanks! I never parted with that bus – she was taken of the road in 2010 and is now hybernating in a dry and warm garage. Hopefully she will come out again in a few years when I have enough time and money to fix her up again. Rust is the main problem, lots of welding to be done…
