Tour de France

After our little trip through Holland and Germany we are now staying with my family in Brittany in France for a couple of weeks. There is no wifi  where we are staying, so blogging is slightly more challenging.
We are enjoying the beautiful late summer days by the sea.  Yesterday all of us went on a long bike ride to the other side of the peninsula, up and down hills and around the bays. We found this old fallen down mill which served as a very nice spot for some family photographs.
As I sit here at our local Minigolf/cafe/ pub with wifi access, the children have all gone fishing with our local friend Michel. Tonight there will be a party/ concert here, a “Fest Noz” which Jayesh and I might check out.

A 40th Birthday Party

On August 23rd my friend Tini turned 40. We have known each other and been friends since Kindergarten days. As teenagers our familys were sometimes holidaying together and  as we were both in the scouts, we shared many adventures.  To celebrate Tini’s special birthay we travelled to Darmstadt on Saturday, August 24th and parked Clifford, the Red Rover inTini’s garden. The evening turned out fantastic, not only due to the amazing paella, but it was also really good to catch up with so many old friends.  We danced and celebrated and sat around a camp fire until the early morning hours.  I feel quite determined to be back for Tini’s 50th, wherever in the world I may be at that point!
