The resting day

Today was a resting day mostly spent next to the pool. It's gotten a bit hotter now and days are now nearly cloudless. Nice! No photos though. Nothing to see here. Keep calm and go to the next post :-)

Carcassonne

I'm reading this book. It's about a guy visiting the people he loans money to through Kiva. I loan through Kiva as well. It's not for profit.

Today we visited the fortified city of Carcassonne.

We were not alone... Carcassonne is kinda like a mini version of Mont St. Michel...

Lovely views though.

Everything dates back centuries ago.

It was great walking around in this little town.

Initially we als wanted to have dinner here and then watch the 14th of July fireworks which should be awesome but we would have to wait in the sun for at least 3 hours and we didn't wanna do that so we left. Instead we watched the fireworks near our camping.

The moon

It was another lazy day, mostly spent by the pool and on our balcony. In the evening the most beautiful moon showed itself. It was very big and very bright.

In the evening we watched the soccer worldcup final and saw Germany beat Argentina. The Germans at the camping were very happy Germans then ;-)

Reading on the balcony

Reading on our balcony, enjoying peace and quiet and a breeze. Loved it.

Excellent reading material too, of course ;-)

Visiting Reserve Africaine de Sigean

We went to Reserve Africaine de Sigean today. A wildlife park with mainly African animals. Half of the park is drive-through and the other half is by foot.





It was a pretty good idea to NOT leave your car!

Lazy bums...

Beautiful shot of a lioness.

It looks like daddy lion has received quite a few bitch-slaps in his time ;-)

Another beautiful, big cat.

White peacock.



I couldn't resist thinking "Me, Milan, Larissa and Simone" hahaha



The chimp at the top has a little one. You can just see its little hand holding on to the back :-)

This is our street. Quite a nice camping I gotta say...

The pool

Today was mainly a pool-day. There is a very nice pool with 3 slides. You'll have to imagine blue water, a yellow slide, a green one and 2 blue ones. Also lots of little palm trees and a seperate pool for laps/sports and another for little kids. There's a ton of sun but also still a lot of wind. It's a nice pool :-)

Planning the next day before hitting the sack.

The soccer game

We took it real easy today, mostly checking out the pool and doing some grocery shopping and getting our bearings.

In the evening we watched Holland play Argentina in the FIFA semi final. The camping had setup a few TV sets inside. It turned pretty orange here and there :-)
Unfortunately Holland lost during the penalties. Pity. Now life can go on again!
