Italy 2016, day 6.

Today's escape from the camping was a visit to the market in Grado. It was actually too hot for anything like this in my opinion but you have to go out and do at least a few things to keep your sanity I find ;-)

Italy 2016, day 5.

After another hot day, we went to the beach. I was reminded of the yucky salty taste it leaves in your mouth... eeeeeew!

But Milan and I had fun with the water toys. I launched Milan into the air a number of times which was fun :-)

Italy 2016, day 4.

For dinner today we wanted to go eat in the town of Grado. Finding agreement on where to eat was not easy. We would've ended up at the worst tourist trap in town if it wasn't for a Dutch couple sitting behind us. They overheard us and the gentleman very kindly pointed out to us where we should go for the finest pizza in town. How awesome! So we walked to this place called Caina (facebook page) and sat down.

My calzone was delicious :-)

Lateron the Dutch couple came to have dinner here as well. The lady wears the green dress, just left of the center.

There were other nice looking restaurants in the old town.

We went for a little walk after dinner.

Big church in the center.

Just after we got on the boulevard it started raining and we went back to our car.

Italy 2016, day 3.

It's very warm here so we haven't done much more apart from going to the pool. You wouldn't wanna see pictures of me at the pool so there are no photos today ;-)

Italy 2016, day 2.

Waking up in Southern Germany with this balcony view is not bad I think :-)

A better photo of the guesthouse we were in. Out balcony is on the right.

After a nice breakfast we drove through the Alps to Italy, destination Grado.

We arrived late afternoon. After we unpacked we walked down to the beach.

The beach is nice but people are not the only ones coming here!

Nice place to sit in the evening when it cools down.

Italy 2016, day 1.

Today we drove off to Italy for our well deserved 2 week vacation! I did some highway sighseeing ;-)

We didn't want to drive all 1300+ km's at once so we had a slaap over in the South of Germany, between Munchen and Salzburg. It was a very nice guesthouse.

The guesthouse had a gigantic chessboard in the back yard where I showed Milan who's the boss ;-)
I like that he knows how (and likes!) to play chess every once in a while. Clever little man he is becoming!

The Pokemon

My first strawberries! Simone already had one, and so did the birds, but these are the first two I hand picked myself. Tasted very nice :-)

There was Pokemon in our plants today...

There was one on the way to the supermarket too!

I saw this during shopping. It's a Volkswagen van wine pack.
