                        EGO abroad

       In every edition we include a picture of the
       magazine in a different part of the world and the
       list of places that the EGO® has visited keeps
       on growing! This month we’re with Will Johnson in
       Germany on a recent excursion with AKT
       (Aberystwyth Kronberg Twinning) outside the
       Kurhaus in Wiesbaden.
       Will has advised us that the building was erected
       in 1907 at the request of Emperor William II. It cost
       six million marks at the time and is inscribed with
       the words ‘Aquis Mattiacis’, meaning ‘dedicated
       to the springs of the Mattiaci’ from Roman times
       (around 6-15 AD). Not far from this building, the rich
       thermal springs can be found that give Wiesbaden
       its name. The first mention of the name ‘Wisibada’
       can be found in records from the year 828 AD.
       The excursion was part of the annual visit by AKT
       to Kronberg im Taunus for the Christmas market,
       where Welsh goods are sold to promote Wales.

       Next month… New York, with one of the EGO’s most
       well-known contributors! Please send all of your
       foreign photos to

       This feature is a photography competition
       with a twist – literally!                                                                              Pic of the Month

       entrance to Aberystwyth harbour in all of its glory.                                               This feature is self-explanatory and as always,   an opportunity for both local and visiting
