I have learnt over the years that the whole of France goes on holiday during the last 2 weeks of August. Not wishing to get caught up in all the traffic was partly the reason for staying in Germany-but why leave? The weather has been gorgeous and we've found some very lovely locations to hang out as well. The past few days at the Kirnbergsee. A peaceful and very relaxing environment in which to find ourselves. It is on the southern edge of the Black Forest.. It hasn't all been peace and light. There has been some heavy rain which resulted in the roof blind above our bed leaking. We learnt of this when we woke up in a soaking wet bed. Mike has clambered up on the roof and resealed it with some kind of silicone type stuff and it seems to have worked a treat. Poor Mike is in the news again this week as he got stung on the leg by two wasps. His leg has swollen up and soon he will have an elephant's ankle. I think it is a little bit better this morning but it does look really sore.
I love travel, any type. There is always a buzz in finding & exploring a place for the first time, meeting and making new friends and if you return things are never quite the same.
