Summer Holidays

So the holidays have finished and the girls are back to school: it's blog time!
This Summer, we did a 3 weeks tour with the van and drove to France and Périgord from Madrid. It was really nice to not have to fly anywhere. We did a few stops on the way at the beach north of Barcelona, in the East Pyrenees and at the beach again in the French Pays Basque on the way back. We are still very much enjoying camping with the van. Even Mrs D did not complain about the lack of spa treatment, complimentary champagne or buffet breakfast.

Overall it was a very successful trip. We did waste a few days waiting for the car to be fixed after Dit had a close encounter with a rock sticking out of the road edge. You can see the little bugger on the picture below. Doesn't look like much, does it? Well, it costed us two wheels and two tyres and a fair amount of stress. But the most important is that nobody got hurt.

Waiting for the wheels delivery without the girls in Ax-les-thermes, we even had some time to dip our feet in the super hot sulphur-rich water, enjoy the local spa baths, cuddle a bit and treat ourselves to profiteroles. It's not all bad!

In Périgord, we once again enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of grandma Miza and aunt Marie-Thé and had a very good time despite the unseasonably cool weather.

Looks like the girls were happy to be there too, doesn't it?

Iluka, and Ella for the first time this year, took a swimming course at the local pool. Iluka improved a lot her breast stroke and Ella did very good, fearlessly jumping in the water without even holding the pole!

We did spend less time bathing in the Dordogne river than usual but the girls were treated to plenty of other fun activities: acrobranche, canoe or pony-riding. Check out Ella's tiny cute pony!
