ON HOLIDAYS IN ITALY
No compiled news today ! I am on holidays at the Garda lake in Italy. (see my travel blog Countries & Cities) The internet connection is not that great so that I am happy to have pre scheduled at least all my pictures for the different memes and use the time to visit you. I have found a nice "office" on the camping ground just behind our Building and can sit there in the garden. Of course people are starring at me wondering what I am doing there early morning with a computer !
We had an awful trip down here, the first part took 10 h instead of 6 because I hadn't thought that in certain parts of Germany the yearly summer holidays had started and people were underway to the south ! The highways were packed ! Besides this football (soccer) fans were on the road to Vienna where the European football championship took place, Germany against Spain ! Yesterday morning I heard that Spain won, if it would have been Germany, they would have gone mad here around. Without knowing I knew that the Spanish team won because of the silence.
It was very very hot and this night we had a terrible thunderstorm. If ever you have lived a thunderstorm in the mountains you know what I am talking about. It just seems the world's end ! The thunder already loud in flat areas in the mountains it has an echo ! The wind almost blow the building away and on our balconee the chairs were pushed from one side to the other which made an awful noise. Fortunately here nothing was damaged apparently. This morning the sun is shining innocently again and the nightmare is completely over.
I am still posting the same picture to show where I am I forgot to take the cable of my camera with me and can't connect to my computer. Today we will go to the next city and try to find one.
