English how about just conversation?
I had to smile..at your sentence I had to give up,, Same here because for 9 years already my husband and I travel with the camper around. ….well not the world, but around quite a bit.
To be honest my Spanish is sort of sleeping same where in my head. I don't find the switch easy enough.. haha
As we have a few of us who would partake in the Spanish part ...why not.
Let us not neglect the English part of it as I enjoy writing and telling in this language.
What a story. I can imagine your family doing such a brave thing back in the year of 1953! Such a courageous woman your Mother. I have visited some of the places you mentioned. Spain is still a beautiful country but there are so many people on the way with campers! It gets crowded in the camp sides... We go mostly in October!
But there are a lot of others as well. One would not believe that there are so many Pensioners on the road.
Have you used Spanish on other occasions?
I learned it over 5 years as I was in England. I was able to write the language quite well. Now I use it only on holidays. A lot of shopkeepers want to show us their English.
Nowadays I wish I had kept that language in use.
Take care and please tell us more about your garden and surroundings. You have such a lively way to write.
I don't know how you are passing the days. We are mostly staying at home as the T. outside is 34 °
We have been shopping in a fruit and vegetable shop who sells really fresh things. Folks are there without masks as it is not obligatory in Switzerland yet. We always put one on as it is our security.
As we have air-conditioning in the flat we are comfortable. Albeit we do not move around enough to say we are “active”
You folks with gardens have a lot to do to water the poor plants I take it?
Well whatever take care stay safe
Saturday last week was the most beautiful day so far . Blue sky, a light breeze, so we decided to go to the seaside, to the lovely town of Eckernförde. Our youngest daughter and our youngest granddaughter had come on a weekend visit from Berlin. We had breakfast rather early, so we started our trip immediately after and arrived shortly after nine. The big parking was still completely empty. The air was clean, the temperature nice and warm, the beach lovely, the sand was soft and gave a wonderful feeling to our bare feet. The sun made a wide sparkling line on the surface of the Baltic Sea. We enjoyed walking along the seaside promenade with very few other people present. We stopped at the popular sweets factory to buy some bags of goodies for friends. Among the market stands we found one selling big violet artichoke flowers. Couldn´t resist. Later we had lunch at a good Chinese restaurant. When we came back t to our car, the parking was completely full . So we made another family happy when we left.
sounds like a very peaceful and relaxed weekend. I imagine that situation - the wide and calm ocean, the sun above and feeling the warm sand underneath bare feet and: together with the beloved children - all this is like heaven!
Enjoy a good week now remembering a wonderful weekend!

How great for you to be able to go to the seaside in a more or less short time. We have our lakes here. For example, our Katzensee.
A little lake beautifully hidden in woods. Even so lots of people find it and go bathing there. IT is K to go for a short swim and go home again as there our crowds of folks even though it is corona time.
We go for a bike tour today. Not far just 1 -2 hrs. That is lovely as we see not too many people and can stop and have a walk when it suits us.
Take care all of you and let us know how you are doing.
the weather is lovely, my oldest daughter is back from her trip to Hungary and will come over with her family for a small BBQ later. I really look forward seeing my youngest granddaughter again, my flowers and bushes most probably not.
Have a great Saturday
being Swiss you can possibly help me herewith:
From a trip long ago I rememger the Brienzer See as a lovely place. And I - too - remember it being pronounced as Bri-enzer See. Now my granson has been invited by a Swiss familiy for a fortnight's hliday to their chalet at this lake. And he claims that the Swiss pronounce it like Br(ie)nzer See like the German "Prinz". I just can't believe it; maybe it's just a sloppy talking?
Looking forward to your answer - Rosemarie
