The Reunion

We met my brother and his family at lake Garda today. I was a bit worried that it would be impossibly crowded at this hotspot for Dutch and German tourism, but I have to admit, it was pretty good. We spent a lazy day at a small and partly shaded beach. The crowds were manageable and – surprisingly – Italian. In all honesty, even the RV park is the best we’ve had thus far, and is by far the cheapest. No, southwest Garda is alright for a day. Maybe my Dutch – German family is the target audience…

The cousins had to get to know each other for a couple of minutes before the actual playing could commence. Communication via pictures and video is not a great basis for childhood friendships, but the boys adjusted well and then played all day. At the end of the day both agreed that they were best friends, at least for the day.

I wish I was this good at establishing best friendships.

The worst family picture ever. Better than nothing.
