    Wicked and Wonderful Wanderings ...

    September 3 in the United Kingdom

    GRATITUDES: After almost 12 hours of sleep ... I was feeling a bit more rested.. we lazed in our loft bed while we added 2 nights in Utecht and 5 days in Paris to our itinerary.  We are hoping we will be as pleased with our accommodations in these places ( as well as Amsterdam) as we have been here in London. 😊

    We opted to get an "Oyster Card"  for our explorations today! This is like a prepaid card and gives us some freedom to come and go on the tubes without having to buy individual tickets! Oh my ... so far we've done well at mastering the tubes!

    Our first stop, at the great suggestion of our good neighbor Doug, was Greenwich.  I had failed to put it together that THIS Greenwich is the standard by which global times are oriented! It's fascinating to be at the center of time ... so to speak!!  It's a quaint little village filled with history and the The University of Greenwich is now where the Old Royal Navy College used to be.  The stone buildings are so mammoth and grand that they inherently command your respect! 

    And, after a nice little lunch at the Tipsy Moth (table 107 outside) we wandered this beautiful little haven on foot.  Only 8881 steps today (6.42kms)!

    GASPS ... of the best kind: We experienced something very unexpected and extra special! There was an opera music exam happening in the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul.  No pictures were allowed ...and ... we were summoned to be absolutely silent. 

    GAHS: We slipped into the pews ... and of course ... my hubby pulls out his video camera!! When I shook my head in utter dismay ... he emphatically whispered his defense in my ear!  "I am not taking pictures  ...  avideo is not a picture!!"  He only captured a second or two of video ... before one of the staff started in our direction. 

    GREAT BIG GRINS: Fortunately, we didn't get expelled for bad behavior!! Instead we were blessed with chills and goose bumps galore!!  After she was complete, we spoke with the student  who performed.  It was her final moment before her degree!! And a stellar ending to her time in school! I expect it is also the beginning of her success as a singer!  She was exceptional! 🤩

    We also got to see vestibule of The Painted Hall!  They were doing some work and much of it was hidden behind layers of scaffolding.

    GRINS: And we enjoyed a stroll through Greenwich Market and stopped in a quaint little lane for a cappuccino and a carrot cake! And then ... I mosied into a little shop and found two blouses to try on.  The lady pointed me towards the fitting room.  I opened the door ... and it was the toilet.  The other door was a closet.  It took me a moment to realize that the fitting room was the space between the two doors.  You just had to pull a curtain.  Too funny! 

    GRATITUDES: But ... better yet ... I bought both tops!  And then came across some fabulous neck pieces that are so artistic!  I  took a video to remind me of how to play with them.  Hopefully it will load so you can see how fabulous they are!!

    After that we got back on the tube ... headed home to give me a little rest and fashioned a little charcuterie board (actually it was a plate) before heading back on the tube to the theatre!!

    GROANS: I wasn't going to mention it, but we had splurged on our tickets for "Wicked" and ended up seated beside a very uppity couple from Washington DC. They seemed determined to impress us with their social status. I wish you could hear the American drawl drawl they spoke with.  We learned they had just come from Ireland too ... but found it..."well ... rather disappointing." Apparently it was just a "tourist trap".  And ... he shuddered to think that people actually drank the entire pint of Guiness that was part of the tour at the Stonehouse.  At this point ... I couldn't stop myself from asking ... with no apology for the bit of an edge in my voice: "What DID you like about Ireland?" I think he liked the history he learned at the jail. His wife ... was as quiet and timid as a mouse. I hope they find some joy in the rest of their travels!!

    Aside from the energy of our seat mates ... "Wicked" was ... dare I say ... wickedly wonderful and marvelously magical!  It brought me tears ... with that beautiful reminder ..  that I am better because I met you! 

    Sending love ... 💚💚💚

    London's First Act was a Show Stopper

    September 1 in the United Kingdom

    We had the best sleep in that little loft bed ... and awoke with plans to prepare a nice breakfast in our  new abode with our grocery purchases from last night!  And, may I say, the gooseberry jam was a delicious addition to our toast and eggs and fruit!  It was suggested that walking is the ideal way to see London ... but we wanted to orient ourselves to the city with the Hop On Hop Off Bus !  And ... now we understand why they recommend walking! At one point there were about 5 buses and a girl on a bicycle and a taxi all gridlocked in traffic near Buckingham Palace!!  GAH!  We must have spent 20 minutes at that intersection! 

    I didn't know it but Trafalgar Square is right in the middle of London. And, it can fit 80, 000 people! It's only a three minute walk from our place.  The sun was shining brightly today ... it was almost too warm at times ... but I am not complaining.  I am expressing my GRATITUDE for the extraordinary weather!  It's supposed to be warm and dry all week.  I hope that it will be, because it would not be nearly as enjoyable with umbrellas!

    GROAN: We couldn't see Big Ben because it's being refurbished. Its leaning slightly and they anticipate it will fall over in 800 years if the tilt is not corrected!  So all you can see is the clock face at the moment.  They seem to be working on many of the older buildings ... they seem to keep them in very good repair!

    MORE GRATITUDES: We took a cruise on the River Thames ... floated under London Bridge and then on down to the Tower of London.  For me, it was extra lovely to spend some time on the water ... away from the overstimulation of all the busyness and people and commotion!  We also enjoyed the panoramic views of the city from the London Eye! It's a magnificent ferris wheel that takes 30 minutes to make a full circle! Gives you stunning 360 degree views of the city!

    Stopped in for a few appys and a cool drink at The Admirality Ale & Pie and ordered the Hamshire Black Pudding Croquettes; Frontier beer battered haddock goujons; Steak and London Pride pie (with carmelized shallots, button mushrooms & thyme); and curried spiced sausage roll! So good! Once again, the food services is second to none here in the UK.

    We were meandering back to Soho ... and ... found ourselves wandering through China town. Lots of people out and about ... street musicians entertaining the passersby with their exceptional talent! We strolled past an all you can eat Chinese buffet ... for $10.95. It looked so good and smelled so good that we got the urge to fill our bellies ... again ... before we went on to the Picadilly Theatre to see "Strictly Ballroom; The Musical." When we got to the theatre we were delighted to learn that if you bought two large glasses of wine you could get the rest of the bottle for $3.00. And ... they would give you a number and place it on the ledge for you to refill your glasses during the intermission! So ... THAT is what we did!! 🥂

    GRINS:  And lots of them. It was sheer delight ... such talent and scripting  and acting and humor and dancing and singing!  We even got showered with confetti at the end of it!  John said it was the best theatre show he has ever seen!  We have tickets to see "Wicked" on Monday ...so we'll see how it holds up to that competition!  

    GRIPES:  Aside from the fact that I have picked up a head cold  ... it was truly a very enjoyable day in London!  Five Star kind of day!!  Talk to you tomorrow! k&j

    Our Last Full Day in London

    September 4 in the United Kingdom

    We awoke to our last full day in London with no firm plans.  We had some ideas in our pocket ... but ... decided to let our hearts lead the way.

    GRATITUDES: We headed towards Westminster Abbey on foot and opted to enjoy a cappuccino and a nice bowl of soup at the crypt at St. Martin-in-the-Field's church. There are tombstones all around you in the floor ... and ...the walls and ceilings display the most amazing brickwork!  We thoroughly enjoyed it and would never have found this remarkable spot without the super suggestion of our great neighbor.  Thank you again Doug!

    GASPS of AWE: We continued down to the Abbey ... and were struck by the monumental majesty of this structure.  The antiquity and reverance displayed within it can simply not be rivaled. It actually sparked some deep conversation between us about what we would like to be remembered for ... if ... we were ever to be talked about through audio headphones in numerous different languages.  🤔

    GRATITUDES: And, with another note of appreciation to Doug, we meandered our way back to Sherlocke Holmes for a "Cumberland Scotch Egg"; some "Sticky Pickle Sausage Rolls"; "Devilled Whitebait" ... and ...a "Dirty Burger." I know ... we ordered a lot... but ... we were running out of moments to taste the local English fare!

    GRINS: Interestingly, John ordered a Sherlock Stout and it is served room temperature! He really, really liked it.  And he really, really liked the Devilled Whitebait.  He thought they were breaded sardines.. but ... the server said not.  I did not dare to try them.

    Okay ... a small GROAN or maybe it's actually a GRATITUDE: it occurred to us as we were in Sherlocke Holmes ... reflecting on our time here in England that we have not had any of those 'Jack the Ripper' foggy nights under the street lamp moments that I have seen on postcards and always associated with London.  It could be ... that it hasn't rained  or maybe it's just that we haven't been out much past 10:00pm!!  😉

    Anyway ... London has been so lovely.  There are still so many things left to do and see ... but ... we are so very grateful we've become acquainted with her flavor and essence! 💚

    And, we are up at it early tomorrow! Our train leaves for Amsterdam at 8:30am.  We're excited for the next leg of this fascinating journey! 

    Thanks for joining us here ... 🧡🧡

    A Walk-About London ...

    September 2 in the United Kingdom

    After a horrible night's sleep due to congestion, headache and scratchy throat ... we were greeted with another day of bright blue skies and warm ... dare I say hot ... sunshine here. 

    GRINS & GRATITUDES: We opted to walk over to Buckingham Palace ... and on our way over we noticed a counselling service being offered out of a small mobile trailer. It was called "Caravan Drop -In." It had such a welcoming energy about it.

    It may sound strange, but in all honesty, neither one of us had any real desire to pay a fortune to see the changing of the guards. As luck would have it though, we bumped into a couple of nice guards in their finest red regalia and those big tall puffy black hats ...I'm not sure what their official name is! Anyway, they were not at all stuffy and proper ... and ... they were kind enough to pose for a picture! 

    We then wandered the streets to get our bearings for where "Wicked" will be playing tomorrow. It's sad because we have seen so many homeless people on our travels around London. And a couple of them had made the steps of the theatre their temporary home. After that, we sauntered fairly aimlessly ... until we found ourselves at Bag O'Nails. I really wish I'd been hungry enough for the All day Sunday Roast ... but I opted for one of their other classic pub favorites... the lasagna!!! Yes. I never expected to find pasta at the pub ... but there it was!! And ... it had a pureed texture to it. Great taste but it seemed odd for lasagna to feel like whipped mashed potatoes in your mouth! John enjoyed the fish and chips ... rated it 9.5/10!

    GROANS: On the map it looked like we could walk to Harrods ... just to experience the posh, pomp and circumstance of the West End of London. It turned into 16,888 steps or a 12.26km walk. I had on the wrong shoes for a trek of that magnitude... but ... John' eyes were the size of dinner plates as he noticed all the high end vehicles ... McLaren, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Austin Martin ... all the super cars. John said some of them would be worth upwards of $250,000!!! 😯 GAH: It's hard to fathom that most of them are driven by older men ... but ... many of them seemed to be accessorized with younger women. 😉

    GRATITUDES: We stopped at the 'chemist' (aka pharmacy) to get some bandaids for our wounded feet ... and ... continud our walking home. It was then that we stumbled upon Caffé Concerto ... and went in for afternoon tea!! And so ... we sipped our tea with fancy chandeliers over head and lively jazz music tickling our eardrums. We thoroughly enjoyed this old English custom ... but we had enough to feed two more people!

    GRATITUDES: On the bottom tier there were sandwiches with the crusts cut off in four varieties: cucumber and cream cheese ... smoked salmon with cream cheese ( John's favorite) ...egg salad... and ham and pickle with a dijon mustard ( my favorite!).
    The second layer offered us four hot scones with whipped butter and teensy tiny little pots of strawberry conserve! And the top layer was generously filled with SIX decadent desserts! Wow!! I am not sure where we expected to put it all ... but ... we gave it our best shot!!!

    Okay ... we are calling it a night early this evening! Hoping to get a better sleep ... fingers crossed!

    Best laid plans.......

    October 17 in the United Kingdom

    It was time to get travelling again and so we arrived at Portsmouth, excited to catch our overnight ferry to Bilbao, Spain. Lots of other travellers were doing the same and the car park was full of motorhomes, caravans, cars and lorries all lined up ready to board. Then, at the last minute, the ferry developed a technical issue and was cancelled! We had two options; wait 4 days for the next ferry to Bilbao or get a ferry that night to Caen, France. We opted to go that night.

    We arrived in Caen early and decided to get as far south as we could. Close to Bordeaux we headed for an Aire that seemed to fit the bill. (An Aire is a parking place where you can usually stay overnight and has facilities for water emptying & refilling/toilet emptying/electric sometimes. They are usually free or have a small charge. France has lots and they are pretty good). When we left the major roads, the sat nav started to take us along some narrow, country roads, then the road was closed for roadworks so we tried another way in. Again narrow roads and roadworks. It was time to stop and have a rethink. We were tired by now.

    'Are you sure you've got the sat nav set up for the motorhome and not a car', asked Chris, 'I'm surprised it's taking us down these narrow roads' . 'I've not changed any of the settings', said I, 'but I'll check again'. Sure enough, the sat nav was in car mode from months ago previously rather than motorhome mode! Once set up correctly, we set off for an alternative Aire in Mirambeau nearby and enjoyed our first night in France.

    Next day, we set off again to put some miles under our belts and got to the village of Sare on the French/Spanish border, Basque country. By chance, the local produce market was still open and as we wandered around the few stalls, we recognised a lady selling organic chillis whom we had met at the Espelette chilli festival last year. With a fresh string of bright red chillis in stock, we said 'au revoir' to France and headed over the border into Spain the following day.

    On the Fly Again ...

    August 31 in the United Kingdom

    It is with heavy hearts that we slurped our last cappuccino in Dublin this morning before we left for the airport ... at our favorite little breakfast spot ... right under our room!

    GRATITUDES: It's a great little cafe called PSTwenty6! We were a bit rushed for time so the chef offered to make us some take-away breakfast sandwiches!! And then ... believe it or not ... they told us that they weren't going to charge us for them! They also offered to give us a 'pour over' to take in our to-go cup.

    GAHS: I had no idea what he was talking about ... and when I found out ... I wish I had known about it sooner!! A `pour over ' is when they top off your cappucino with filtered drip coffeel I could have and would have done that countless times ... if I knew such a thing existed!! Anyway ... you just can't get better service than that! The Irish are amazing in their hospitality and humanity! 😀

    MORE GRATITUDES: And so, instead of taking a taxi again, we took the 747 Air Coach back to the airport and saved ourselves $25 Euros ... which is close to $40 CAD! And once we arrrived here in England, it was going to cost $130 - $150 euros to take a taxi from Gatwick to our accommodations!! So, we courageously opted to utilize a variety of public transit instead! So, we were armed with our directions and hoping like crazy that we could find our way to our new home in London ... without too much confusion, duress or agony! And ... guess what! It was relatively painless! We took the train to London Victoria station ... then hopped on the tube ... a quick transfer to another tube ... and a bit of a walk from there to our little house! Once again ... we remain deeply grateful for the help of kind but complete strangers!!!! We would have gotten very lost without their willingness to help a tourist!

    We are staying in Soho ... so our quaint new little home is in the beating heart of London. We are staying in the "smallest house in central London" that used to be a stable for working horses over 200 years ago. We are sleeping in the loft! yes ... we have to climb up the ladder ... and over the sitting room ... which is up the semi-spiral staircase from the kitchen and bathroom areas! I may be graoning about this later ... but for now ... it all seems so very cute! And for sure ... this renovated stable is fabulous when it comes to the old adage about "location, location, location" being of prime importance. We are close to the theatre district and have all kinds of restaurants and inviting nightlife right here ... all around us. We can walk to Buckingham Palace and many other of the sights to see here in London. We may even see some 'ladies of the night' in these parts ... but for us on this day of travel ... we grabbed a bite to eat at KILN (an Asian inspired eatery right beside our place!) and then ... wandered down the street to stock up on groceries! Yes!! Location, location, location!! Makes all the difference in the world for the quality of your trip if you are not driving!

    GRINS: Doesn't sound terribly exciting ... but John was in his glory at the Whole Foods store just up the street from us! There were quail eggs, fresh bread, baklava ... and ... it had a deli with an abundance of meats and unfamiliar cheeses and olives and wines and all kinds of goodness to pop into the basket!!! It just feels so good to us to get stocked up for breakfasts ... so that we can cook a bit now that we will have a kitchen. And ... it is lovely to simply relax and sip on a lovely Chilean(sp?) Merlot while we regroup after our commute today!!

    GRIPES: No gripes to report for today at all!! Amazing to be able to say that on a day of travel!!

    Tomorrow will be our first full chance to get acquainted with London. And ... we are eager for the fun to begin!! Someone said London is like New York ... and ... we LOVE New York!! So ... good night from us ... and ... good morning to all of you back at home!!

    Warmest smiles from our hearts to yours ... k&j

    Letztes Laufen in London

    July 17 in the United Kingdom

    Heute war ein schöner, aber anstrengender Tag, jedenfalls bin ich viel gelaufen und kann das jetzt am ganzen Körper merken.
    Angefangen hab ich meinen Tag nach einem gemütlichen Morgen mit der Fahrt nach London. Da bin ich dann bei Marble Arch angekommen und hab mich auf den Weg gemacht zur British Library. Ich hab einen unnötigen, kleinen Umweg gemacht, bin aber trotzdem ungefähr eine Stunde später angekommen. Bei der Bücherei war ich bei den 'Treasures', also alten Schriften und Manuskripten. Ich hab was von Bach, Händel, Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde und anderen Schriftstellern und Musikern gesehen. Außerdem gab es eine Abteilung mit heiligen Texten, also sehr alten religiösen Schriften. Besonders beeindruckend waren da die Papyrus Fetzen aus dem 3. Jahrhundert und ein griechisches Buch aus dem 4. Jahrhundert. Eine wunderschöne King James Bible war auch da. Es war echt beeindruckend das zu sehen, nur Schade, dass man keine Bilder machen durfte.
    In der Bücherei hab ich einen Kaukau und Muffin gekauft und ein bisschen gelesen bevor ich mit Tomke telefoniert habe um den 'Creator Store' zu finden, einen Laden bei dem physikalischen Youtube, wo man Merchandise von Youtubern kaufen kann. Das hat ein bisschen gedauert zu finden, aber schlussendlich war ich dann doch erfolgreich. Nach einem Kauf da hab ich mich dann wieder auf einen einstündigen Spaziergang aufgemacht, dieses Mal zur St Paul's Catherdral. Bevor ich da rein gegangen bin, hab ich etwas gegessen um mich zu stärken. In St Paul's hab ich dann nachdem ich den Eintritt bezahlt habe an einer umsonsten Tour teilgenommen. Der Leiter hat sehr viel erzählt, aber es war auch echt alles interessant. Die Wendeltreppe wurde zum Beispiel bei einem Harry Potter Film für einen Flug von Hedwig benutzt. Nach der Führung, die uns durch die Kathedrale allgemein, in die Krypta und in das Chorgestühl geführt hat, bin ich nach oben zu der 'Whisper Gallery' gegangen. Allgemein durfte man keine Bilder machen, genauso wie in der Bücherei, aber bei St Paul's musste ich das leider ignorieren - euret- und meinetwegen! Das war echt beeindruckend da oben. Aber die Stufen haben auch da noch nicht aufgehört. Ich konnte nämlich noch weiter aufs Dach und dann auch noch auf die 'Golde Gallery' ganz nach oben. Die Aussicht war genial und ich bin echt froh, dass ich das gemacht habe heute!
    Nach St Paul's bin ich am Ufer entlang zu Westminster gelaufen, von da aus zum Trafalgar Square, am Cupcake Laden vorbei wieder auf die Oxford Street zu Marble Arch. Da hab ich mich mit Essen versorgt und bin dann mit dem Bus nach Hause gefahren.
    Ich hatte einen wunderschönen Tag mit vielen Eindrücken und netten Menschen. Schöner hätte mein Abschied von London nicht sein können. Ich hoffe, dass ihr einen tollen Tag hattet! Ich melde mich morgen wieder. Gute Nacht!

    A Very Potter Oxford

    July 16 in the United Kingdom

    Heute war ein sehr schöner Tag, der aber nicht unbedingt geplant gelaufen ist. Geplant war durchaus, dass ich joggen gehe, was ich dann auch erfolgreich gemacht habe. Nicht geplant unbedingt war, dass ich dann bügel, aber das konnte ich gut in meinen Tagesablauf schieben. Das war dann heute das letzte Mal, dass ich bügeln durfte hier. Natürlich hat mich das traurig gemacht!
    Nach dem Bügeln hab ich geduscht und gefrühstückt und mich dann für einen letzten Ausflug nach Oxford fertig gemacht. Da hatte ich eigentlich geplant in die Bücherei zu gehen, aber alle Touren, die ich zeitlich schaffen konnte waren ausgebucht. Stattdessen hab ich dann eine Harry Potter Tour für den frühen Nachmittag gebucht und die Zeit bis dahin mit Mittagessen, spazieren und lesen verbracht. Kurz vor der Tour hab ich irgendwie es geschafft auch wieder zwei Bücher zu kaufen, das ist wirklich ein ganz besonderes Talent. Zu meiner Verteidigung: Ich hatte das, was ich gelesen habe, zu Ende gelesen und brauchte mindestens für die Busfahrt zurück ein neues Buch!
    Die Harry Potter Tour hat dann bald nach den Käufen angefangen. Die war echt toll! Der Tourguide war total toll und ich hab viele Sachen gehört - einiges wusste ich auch schon, aber die Tour war trotzdem toll. Es waren viele nette Menschen, von denen ich Bilder gemacht habe und die auch Bilder von mir gemacht haben. Den Umhang hatte unsere Expertin mitgebracht und ich war GLÜCKLICH! Auf der Tour waren wir bei den normalen Attraktionen draußen und außerdem bei dem New College, wo im vierten Film einige Szenen gedreht wurden, und bei der Trinity School drin, wo der Krankenflügel und auch der 'Defense Against the Dark Arts' Klassenraum gedreht wurde. Echt cool, das von Nahem zu sehen.
    Nach der schönen Tour durch die schöne Stadt hab ich mich wieder auf den Weg nach Hause gemacht. Da hab ich dann meine Sachen abgeladen und hab mich auf den Weg zu Anna gemacht, wo ich dann mit ihr und ihrem Bruder zu Abend gegessen habe und dann über Ferienpläne geredet habe, was ein schöner Abschluss zu dem schönen Tag war.
    Jetzt werde ich bald ins Bett gehen. Es war durchaus warm und dann durchaus auch ein bisschen Strecke, die ich so insgesamt zurück gelegt habe. Also euch allen eine gute Nacht und bis morgen!

    Letzte ganze Tag in Thame

    July 18 in the United Kingdom

    Heute ist in gewisser Weise mein letzter richtiger, ganze Tag in Thame, aber weil ich gleich zu meiner Familie auf einen Campingplatz in Stokenchurch fahren werde, heb ich mir das sentimentale Geschreibe für wann anders auf. Es wird kommen! Also seid gewappnet!
    Mein letzter richtige Tag hat mit Joggen angefangen. Das hat gut geklappt und hat mir irgendwie Kraft gegeben für die Aufgaben, die dann gefolgt sind. Zuhause hab ich dann nämlich direkt angefangen mit der Wäsche. Damit mein ich sowohl alles waschen, als auch meine Schränke ausräumen und sortieren nach Sachen, die ich für den Urlaub brauche und welche, die ich nicht brauche. Ich hab systematisch und ordentlich gearbeitet und war zufrieden mit meinem Vorankommen. Insgesamt hab ich für Packen und Putzen eine Sherlock-Staffel gebraucht - also von morgens irgendwann bis mittags... Sorry, das sind die einzigen Zeitangaben, die ich euch anbieten kann. Ich kann euch aber auch sagen, dass alles, was ich nicht brauche in meine drei Koffer passt - Klamotten jedenfalls. Ich hab durchaus zu viel. Zu viel mitgenommen und auch zu viel gekauft, aber immer hin hab ich alles gut verpackt - lasst uns das Positive an der Situation sehen!
    Nach dem Packen hab ich mir ein großes Mittagessen erlaubt und dann den Nachmittag mit der Wäsche verbracht. Ich hab mein Bett neu bezogen und alle Kleidungsstücke zusammengelegt. Dann hab ich einen langen Zeitraum mit Statistiken verbracht und einzelnen Gesprächen mit dem Logabirumer Klan auf dem Weg nach England.
    Vorhin war ich dann für unser gemeinsames Abendessen einkaufen und hab dann eben noch Tagebuch geschrieben. Auch da war ich noch nicht ganz sentimental - ich verdränge das so ein bisschen gerade, dass das alles bald vorbei ist.
    Okay, jetzt mach ich mich aber auf den Weg! Ich melde mich sobald es geht wieder - ich weiß noch nicht in welcher Form, aber seid gewappnet wie gesagt! Ich hab euch lieb! Passt auf euch auf! Gute Nacht!

    PS: Was für ein spannender Titel, der richtig Spannung erzeugt, ne?!

    Stokenchurch

    July 20 in the United Kingdom

    Am Freitag bin ich nicht in Thame aufgewacht, sondern auf dem Campingplatz in Stokenchurch. Das konnte ich nur akzeptieren, weil wenigstens Jakob neben mir und die anderen drei auch ganz nah bei mir waren. Wir haben uns dann morgens gemächlich fertig gemacht, haben alles verstaut und sind dann auf in Richtung Wales gefahren. Nach einer Stunde haben wir erst einmal eine Pause an einer Raststätte gemacht und haben gefrühstückt. Die restlichen vier Stunden sind wir dann aber durchgefahren und waren gegen drei Uhr dann in Pitton Cross, unserem Campingplatz in der Nähe von Swansea – Wales.
    Wir haben sofort mit dem Vorzeltaufbau angefangen, was man gut war, weil, sobald das Dach quasi stand, es angefangen hat zu regnen, was ganz ungewohnt war, der Natur aber bestimmt gut getan hat. Für den Rest des Tages hat es dann hin und wieder mal ein bisschen gegossen, aber fertig aufbauen konnten wir trotzdem. Als alles stand sind wir zu dem nächsten kleinen Supermarkt gefahren und haben ein paar Dinge fürs Abendbrot gekauft. Wieder bei Vivilday durfte ich dann das zu Teilen wegräumen und auch den Wohnwagen systematisieren mit meinen Sachen und auch allgemein den Schubladen und dem Badezimmer. Ich hatte Spaß und den anderen ging es auch gut.
    An unserem ersten Tag in Wales haben wir dann nur noch zu Abend gegessen. Mama und ich haben einen kleinen Spaziergang gemacht, sind dann aber Zuhause auch direkt ins Bett gegangen, nachdem ich schnell wenigstens noch mein Tagebuch geschrieben habe.
