On to the Next Vacation

Bavarian sunset.

Well I had an awesome time in Germany. Thanks Gary, Deb and Kayla! Two weeks of living in a normal house and doing normal things like riding in a car, going to the gym and spending the American dollar is much sweeter than it sounds. My cousin and family live in Germany right on the Czech border. All the surrounding area is countryside and it was really nice to just be so close to nature. I forget how hard city living is and how much I miss being able to get away from it all. The country air did a lot of good too, because most days I was up around 6:00, which is way more normal for me than the 8:00 mornings in France.

This is another picture of Prague. I took it from the courtyard of the castle. See the tiny flag on top of the building? It is the American flag!


Coming back to France was hard because...well, the list is just way too long. However, tomorrow I am off on my next vacation in the south of France. I am really excited about this because supposedly there are no sharks in the ocean and I love to swim! I plan on spending at least 5 hours a day in the water.

I will be back August 16 and I don't go back to work until the last week of September. All this vacation time is really tough on me and I am not being sarcastic! I am one of those people who likes to stay busy. I have no idea what I will do for a month. There are a few museums I haven't seen yet, but I can't go to them everyday. Any suggestions?

i'm glad you had a good time in germany and prague. we looooved prague when we went there. as far as swimming, i think you are definately going to be spending lots of time in the water. i know i'm a bit further south than the south of france, but the water is so wonderful. if i could i would stay there all day. i hope you have a good time there too.

LOL - Angela. I've had to figure out what to do with my time away from the house every day this week. Photography, side trips and walking. Visit Paris parks, read a book, people watch and just have fun...

But I'm so envious you are now going to the south of France. I wish I had this much vacation time because I'd be biking around Switzerland or something.

Have a lot of fun swimming for me. (I still can't get myself in that water.)hehe really...

Enjoy your trip to the South of France, Angela! Wow, that is a long vacation. Do you get two months off every year? You're always welcome in Canada!

Hope you had a great vacation with lots of good swimming and wonderful eating. The south of France has always sounded lovely to me. I hope it didn't disappoint.
