    Family Reunion Nags Head North Carolina

    May 25 in the United States

    Elisa's mom rented a gorgeous house in Nags Head so everyone could get together.

    The house was 3 stories, has 8 masters bedrooms and 2 rooms with bunks and twin. They were 12 bathrooms. It can hold 18 people but we had 24 for a few days.

    The house had a pool, spa, right on the beach, pool table, small 2nd kitchen and bar downstairs with a pool table and 3 grills. A tent was also put up and taken down everyday on the beach.

    This was home for 7 nights. Danielle, Desmond, Daemon, Wade, and Aurora were 3rd to arrive late afternoon on Friday with Kristia, Charlotte and Maverick very close behind. Chuck's family of Michael, Dawn, Christian and Korban came a few hours later to make up the house for the 7 days.

    Elisa 's uncle Tom and aunt Claire, along with her 3 grown up cousins, Catlin, Juliet and Isobel, along with Caitlin's wife Maria all came late Friday night and left Monday morning.

    The whole week pretty much was hanging at the pool or beach, or drinking. This was the first time all the cousins got to meet each other all together. It was also the first time Michael and his family met Barbs family. The kids had a great time with each other. Brandon loved playing with Wade. Inara played with Charlotte more and warmed up to everyone by the end. Even Desmond was able to take her to the beach with no fuss.

    It was a good time and pretty relaxing. We had lunch out at a Seafood restaurant one afternoon and did some shopping & Elisa and barb went hangliding but other than that there wasn't much leaving the house. The last day we all went to the Dunes in Nags Head to check them out. There was crabbing at night as well as some game to play.

    Christian is a photographer and did family photos for a couple hours as well.

    Hangliding

    May 26 in the United States

    Today Elisa and Barb went hangliding about 30 min from where we were staying. This was Elisa 's bday and mothers day gift. It was a mile high and approx 30 min long.

    Elisa said getting pulled up by the airplane was scary but the hangliding part was serene and cool. Barb had no idea what she signed up for but loved it and was more adventures than Elisa with the instructor doing a bit more moves.

    After that we went to a brewery called the Weeping Radish.

    Cape Henelopen State Park

    June 6 in the United States

    We didn't need to check out till 12 noon, so it was another lazy morning. We actually got the car packed by 11 and then checked out the park.

    We walked to the old army barracks and went up the tower which we think was about 550 steps. We were going to have lunch near the park but it was a bit windy and Inara fell asleep before we could find a place to eat.

    We then had an hour and half drive to Elisa's sister Danielle's house to hang out with her family and all the cousins before her Dad finished work. We will be at Newark De for the next 5 nights.

    Bowling with the family

    June 9 in the United States

    Today we went bowling with Danielle' s kids and Lou, Elisa's dad. It was a lot of fun for all. The little kids could only do a game but Josh and Daemon continued on another 2 games with coaching tips from Lou.

    Josh had the best score with Elisa was the worst out of everyone. The kids did get side rails and assistance with the bowl.

    Danielle and Elisa took the kids to the arcade area and let them run a muck.

    After bowling we had an early dinner at a Mexican restaurant where Danielle thought it was amusing to get all of us Bday sundaes.

    It was a fun day for all.

    Lazy Sunday and saying goodbye

    June 10 in the United States

    Elisa woke up early to get her Dad a father's day gift as she thought it was Father's Day. Later after all her running around she found out it was next week. She went to Kolhs and bought picture frames as well as went to Walgreens to print out photos.

    In the afternoon we went to Danielle's house. Danielle and Elisa went shopping so Elisa could find an outfit for her reunion in July. Desmond and Josh watched the kids as they played with each other.

    This was the last time to see Danielle and her crew so we had to say a sad goodbye to them all.

    That night Elisa 's dad made a delicious steak which Elisa always raves about.

    Stones from home

    April 26, 2017 in the United States

    One of the pilgrim traditions along the Camino is to throw a stone, brought from the place of origin of the pilgrim, onto the pile of stones at the Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross) at the top of Mounte Irago. Pilgrims assign different meanings to the stones they place. Tom and I visited his childhood home in Delaware today to pick up stones. His stone is pale and oblong, mine is more round and coral in color. Delaware isn't exactly my childhood home in northern Virginia but, relatively speaking, it's pretty close.

    Oh, and there are our matching fit bits. :P

    Umzug Nr. 2

    September 4, 2017 in the United States

    Am Montag (einem Feiertag in den USA - Labour Day, also Tag der Arbeit) war es dann endlich so weit, dass wir nach Baltimore und in unsere dauerhaftes Zuhause auf Zeit (klingt irgendwie lustig) ziehen konnten. Voller Vorfreude haben wir uns bei strahlendem Sonnenschein auf die zweistündige Fahrt von Philadelphia nach Baltimore gemacht. Nur um dann im Haus festzustellen, dass das Sauberkeitsempfinden der Eigentümer so gar nicht unseren eigenen Standards entspricht. Nach Rücksprache mit Nancy, haben wir dann den Großteil unseres freien Tages mit Putzmittel- und Bettwäsche-Shopping verbracht. Zuvor haben wir uns aber noch Pizza geholt und im Park gegessen. Schön war dabei, dass wir trotz anfänglicher Misslaune schnell zu unserem Humor zurückgefunden haben und das Beste aus der Sache machen wollten. Bei Walmart haben wir also Putzmittel und einen Staubsauger gekauft und bei Ikea Bettwäsche und ein paar "Gemütlichkeits-Utensilien". Zuhause angekommen ging dann die Wasch- und Putzsession los, um das Haus in einen Zustand zu bringen, mit dem wir uns alle wohlfühlen. Zur Belohnung oder besser Entschädigung sind wir dann am Dienstag früher von der Arbeit gegangen und haben uns noch den Nachmittag in einer Mall vertrieben und waren abends thailändisch essen.

    Das Büro ist im Gegensatz zum Haus ziemlich cool. Wir haben jeder einen eigenen Platz in einem Großraumbüro eines anderen Unternehmens und einen coolen Meetingraum mit riesigem Bildschirm für Präsentationen und Skype-Calls. Außerdem ist die Lage echt super zentral und es gibt unglaublich viele Essensoptionen fürs Mittagessen. Nichtsdestotrotz haben wir eine Mikrowelle mitgenommen, damit wir uns auch mal Essen aufwärmen können und Geld sparen ;)

    So, mehr gibt es zu unserem Umzug nicht zu sagen. Richtig genießen können wir unsere inzwischen saubere Bleibe jedoch nicht, weil wir am Donnerstag nach Philadelphia fahren, um am Freitag dort mit den anderen Mädels zusammenzuarbeiten und Samstag nach Buffalo und zu den Niagarafällen zu fahren. Davon gibt's dann im Laufe der nächsten Woche einen neuen Beitrag und Fotos :)

    Bis dahin liebste Grüße :*
