Last day


So a last look at my desk. I quite my job last Friday. Was a fun but hectic week, filled with goodbyes, farwell parties, cakes, nice compliments. But all good things must come to an end, even after twelve years.
I am looking forward to start my new job tommorrow to see what challenges lay ahead of me.
Wish me good luck. Here we go...

More pics of the Ardennes

 
Some more pictures of our short vacation. We visited the caves of Remouchamps. very impressive and a fantastic spooky boattrip back to the exit. The kids loved it.

 
In the afternoon a quick visit to the SPA factory. Had a taste of the new waters, I wasn´t thrilled, but I understand that a lot of people like the news ones, I only like mint water. But was fun to do. And the boys loved watching the conveyor belts with hunderds of bottles of water.
 


Since the weather was really hot, we decided to buy a bach and with some soap and water, hours of sliding fun.
 


The Eifelpark in Gondorf is really awesome for kids, good entrance price, free parking and lots of fun. Price of food is decent.


There is also a wildpark where the kids can feed all sorts of deer. They absolutely loved it. Great day in Germany.

 
All in all, a great short holiday in our own country, really enjoyed ourselves.

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.
