Happy birthday to meee!
Thank you all of you who took your time to congratulate me! I love birthdays and all the attention, Thank you! Its my first birthday in a van, seems like it works just as a normal one 🙂
Life has a way of giving you exactly what you need. On my birthday we woke up on our very improvised camping site, half way up a mountain. Not sure where we were it became obvious that we had picked the right place, because right there – on my bithday –there were pigs! Free roaming pigs, almost ate Johns tent, I fed them crackers! I rolled out of bed and into my down jacket to get you this video of it: Pigs!
Tzak gave me a vario as a birthday present! What a glorious day! After a lovely cup of coffee we set off towards the mountain area they call Switzerland. They boys wanted to see Interlaken and since we were in the neighbourhood we decided to stop by. We had left Lake Garda the day before and the plan was to check the town of Interlaken out to see if the raftng was good, if the paragliding was good and if they had any chocolate.
The conclusion was yes.
After having very expensive chocolate cake and a nice chat to the people at Outdoor Interlaken we set camp at the last camping site open in town. Wifi, a kitchen and showers was exactly what we needed. The next couple of days were spent in the studybooks for me, starting an essay on the history of pedagogics and its development, and a flying day for the boys.
Here is a video of Tzak speedflying from Männerichen.
Being in a an outrageously expensive town we decided to save the culinary experience for later, so we stayed in our new kitchen, had beers and beef teriyaki. The boys surpised me with italian cake and as a treat we put the heater on in the car so that the sheets were nice and toasty.
Thank you birthday and Interlaken!
We set off west towards Annecy, our first airbnb and a cheese overdose. Stay tuned!
