Flexible loop

Up at seven thirty today, though I woke up a few times before that (again). We’re close by a road with quite some traffic, plus we slept with the windows open to cool the room down, hence the hiccups. We take our entire electronics stock down for breakfast: phone & tablet for organising the day,… Continue reading Flexible loop

Our procession to Echternach (and back)

We're going through the books and TV entertainment quickly, but luckily we came prepared with much to read and watch, so we're not worried that we'll get bored. After the usual morning routine (with some leftover chicken berberé for the sandwhiches today),… Continue reading not fens, bogs!
