Spring makes you like all the things better, don´t you think?
Mehmet is still going veggie. Refusing any sausage or meatball you offer him, even if I know he likes it - so we had loads and loads of fresh vegetables - and tofu! - this week. I´d like him to eat a little meat, from time to time, but I admire his dedication.
Did I tell you about our family´s plans for this summer yet?
Oh, it´s gonna be so awesome!
We´ll go to Southengland (I´m sure I told you about that), but we won´t just stay in the trailer we rented in Cornwall, but on our way, we´ll also meet a lovely French family, close to St.Malo, with their two kids and some other Couchsurfers. They live in a big, rural house, and apparently they are some kind of theatre performers, and in the week we´ll visit them, there´s a medieval festival in their town where they participate. And they invited us to join.
And, just as lovely, we´ll "couchsurf" with a really big family - with a community of 35 fundamental christian Hippies in Devon, who are living together, homeschooling their children and having folk music nights every other night. I guess you could call them a "sect", but I feel confident enough in my atheism to respect their ideas, and I´m so looking forward to meeting them. My first and most lovely hostmother was a member of some eccentric church as well, and she was, for sure, one of the most amazing persons I´ve ever met.
I love the exchange of world views, and I´m sure those people will be able to fill my life bucket a little more.
Those are the two who, so far, have replied to my requests, and I´m excited to meet them all! In fact, I´m so excited I´m almost jumping on my sofa like a five year old.
Oh, and when I say we´ll go - I mean literally going. With a backpack, and without a car. We´ll take some trains, and some busses, and the ferry, of course, but this year is the first in which we dare to solely backpack - all of us. It´s gonna be a cheap, ecofriendly, surely exhausting but mulitcultural adventure - the perfect summer vacation!
