In Portugal

In September 2018 my friend and I went to Portugal to see how the English invaded Portugal in 1808.
When I was home I made a website of it:

Mauritius for the second time

I have been on Mauritius for the second time from 26th of March till 05th of April 2018.
We visited our son, daughter-in-law and our for grandchildren.
The first time in 2016 I did not search for all the Napoleon-objects.
This time I was looking for the rest and I found it all!

Finland

The Swedish-Russian War was from 1808 till 1809.
It was a Napoleonic war, because Napoleon had insisted on it by the Treaty of Tilsit.

From 5 - 13 sept. 2017 I travelled in Finland to see the remains of this war.
(I was also for two days in Schweden, from Vaasa tot Umea and back. You see the result later when I make a trip to Schweden and Norway.)

Finland is now to see on:                 www.roelkvos.nl/napfin

In Namibia

From 29th Jan. till 19th Febr. 2017 I travelled with my wife and friends through Namibia.
It was a beautiful trip of tree weeks.
We saw many wild animals, walked in the dessert, stayed in modern lodges eso.
It took 5000 km to see it all!
