The route is located near the aerodrome of Biggin Hill, which was mentioned in the Da Vinci Code: the airport is the scene of landing of Sir Leigh Teabing's private yet. This area was also the principal fighter base protecting London in the Battle of Britain during World War II. And its runway also appears on the back cover of Pink Floyd's album Ummagumma.

Picture of the month

Who is Nadar?


As picture of the month, we have a talk about pictures, showing many great shots. It's a talk by David Griffin, working for National Geographic. A video worth watching.

It's got examples of quite a few amazing places in this world. Amazing in the good and bad sense.

The talk is broadcasted on TED.

Gluring Turing

The Techy-spot

Set-up

Every month, we nominate a more technical item here which is linked to RouteYou activities, directly or indirectly. We have named this item in honor of Alan Turing.

This Gluring Turing puts the website amiando in the picture.

This website is great if you want to set up an event and you would like people to register. It is for free if you don't sell tickets via the system. If you do, Amiando takes a share of the price, but they take care of the payment, registration, follow-up,...

We tried it ourselves for our training event on december 23 and it's great! Maybe, we see eachother there on the training...
