On the road again

Today marked the last day of the work week, the last day of the teaching period, and well, the first day of my three weeks of holidays. I needed them now more than ever. Covid got me good, and three weeks of mild chilling will be the best I could do with my time.

We weren’t sure whether we should already leave this evening, but I’m glad we did. We drove about three hours and are now on an RV lot in Trins, Austria. This is a small town right next to the Brenner pass, which we will cross tomorrow.

We arrived in the pitch dark. I have no clue what it looks like here, but judging from the sirens we just heard, we are right next to the fire station. I’m not sure if that should make me feel safe, or worried about sleep interruptions?

I’ll try to have a good rest, and tomorrow we’ll drive into one of my favorite countries in Europe. I’ll indulge in many espresso, and the occasional pasta, on the Mediterranean coast. I can’t wait!
