Ardennes

 
So after a trip from hell, where we drove from traffic jam to traffic jam, we arrived at Malmedy.
This morning we visited Gerolstein, drank some water, (some of us, I drank coffee). Had some lunch before driving to Bitburg.

 
Several years ago we made the same picture so we thought it would be fun to make a new one and see how the kids have grown.

 
So Bitburg... not much to see, but we had a nice walk.

 And now everybody is relaxing and the kids are playing in the large garden. Great location to stay.

Greece

So we are back home. Public Wifi is not that great in Greece that I could post during our holiday, so here is a summary.
 
 
As Always, son #3 had his birthday during our holiday. I took him for breakfast at the local bakery while they decorated the boat and prepared the cake.


Went in search of a boat wreckage that was supposed to be on Zakyntos, and we found it. Great day with a rented small boat. We visited the blue caves and the wreckage.

 
Zakyntos is famous for its turtles, but we only saw them in Argostoli. They are so fun to watch and they are quiet curios.

 
The waves can get quit big on Myrtos beach and the boys just loved them.

 
Greek coffee and icecream... they are so delicious...

 
 


 
Yes the water is so blue, the picture doesn´t do it justice. It is almost unnatural.

 
This year we also saw bigger octopus. Very fun to watch and to see how strong they are.

 
Caves in Sami, not big, also not the most beautiful that I saw, but a relief to get into if it so hot.

 
And yes, most of the days there was a red flag, so no swimming...
 
But we had a great holiday.

It´s raining...


So this is the road I drive home everyday, but yesterdya it took me almost two hours to cross the 10 km next to the canal. It rained so hard yesterday afternoon, that this was the result... Almost no cars to pass eachother and the roads were closed, but no signs placed, so chaos ensured...


Well, if we need to believe the experts, this is going to happen a lot in the near futher, so I guess we better buy a SUV with an air in take on the roof, LOL.
