Immanuel Kant


In case (like me) you didn’t know, Immanuel Kant was an influential philosopher from the 1700s. If you Google and read his work ‘The Critique of Pure Reason’, you probably won’t understand it either.

Anyway, I bring this up because he lived and is now buried in Kaliningrad. The house where he lived was bombed during the war, but has subsequently been restored. What a fine piece of restoration work it is too.

I’ve had my picture taken a lot today, Inga is quite a camera fan. I didn’t take many pictures myself, but here’s one of Inga outside Immanuel Kant’s house and grave.

Shortly afterwards we collected her son and took him to a football match. He’s only 13 but a nice lad who’s learning English at school. Like all 13 year olds he was a but shy about taking to me in English. (Just like me learning French when I was at school). But Inga was keen for us to talk, so we did.

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
