People Are People...

Are you ready for this?  {smile}

I've started composing some themed photo collages of our Europe Tour and would like to start with the 'People' part of our trip. Meeting these people again (let's call them friends and family shall we?) was one of the main reasons of going to Europe in the first place of course.

We borrowed my dad's car (Thanks again Dad!) and stayed only with friends along the way, some of whom we hadn't seen in 13 years or more! We hit it of again right from the start and it felt like we had spoken to them only last week!

Here they come: (click to enlarge!)

We really wanted our kids to taste the flavor of Europe so to speak and staying with our friends and seeing how people live over there really made that happen.
Both kids were born in Bavaria and Master C. felt quite connected with everything German. He is not one for change and I think the 'Deutsche Grundlichkeit' really struck a cord within him...

Here are some pics of Master C. and Miss M. doing stuff together:

Master C. taking it all in:

And Miss M. having a blast everywhere she went:

Spending a whole month together as a family 24/7 might make for some tense situations in some families but not in ours; it was wonderful to enjoy so much quality time together...

So, that was the first part of my themed collages, I hope you enjoyed them? Next up are, in no particular order: Castles, Beer, Berlin, Paris, Landscapes and Cars, to name but a few...
