One phone call later and I was the proud 'owner' of a week off. Well, eight days to be exact. And they start today! But, as I said in the first paragraph: living with my parents gets to me a bit. So, I looked around for somewhere to go.
The Islands are the complete opposite as they are in the North and located in the 'Waddenzee'. Fresh sea breezes, birds aplenty, perhaps even a seal or two. Plus a ferry to get there. In the end my choice was...
And that is where I am going today and I am not coming back until next Friday. By which time I hope to have plenty of stories, plenty of photos and a very relaxed Mara. Brom and Mouse are coming, Miss O is not. She doesn't do traveling.
There will be walking, some sightseeing, a trip to Germany and Belgium (well, one step into either country, max), television, films, chocolate, perhaps some alcohol, a fire in the fire place and plenty more. Oh, and did I mention chocolate?
