Meg could not believe the size of the Big Gulp cups at 7-11. She asked me to take a picture with her hand for comparison. I think they hold 2 liters each!
For the most part our trip has gone really well in spite of Corona measures. Perhaps the worst part is border crossings. Today we waited over 90 minutes to cross from Slovenia to Croatia. It was incredibly hot in the car, as you can see by the sweat dripping down Spencer’s face. Fortunately I read some of Surely you’re joking Mr. Feynman for entertainment.
On Tuesday, we wondered south from Austria and we all encountered a new to us country: Slovenia. Beautifully clean and bio diverse.
Our first country outside Germany was Austria. We stayed in the Salzburg countryside and went hiking on a trail called Wild Waters and then to Therme Amanda (no pictures of that).
We went to Paris this past weekend. It was Spencer’s idea to go to see Paris to see vulfpeck. We decided that it would be a treat for the kids putting up with moving across an ocean and mostly being good about it. Meg loves Paris and jumped at the idea. Meg and Clare spent much of the day at the Louvre and shopping. Spencer and I climbed the arc de triomphe , took a nap and then went to the concert. I got some nice videos of the concert. One thing I found amazing was how people were singing along to bass solos.
While we were on vacation at Horseshoe Lake last week, my parents generously agreed to watching the kids one night so Clare and I could have some “adult” time with our friends Luis and Courtney. We had a great time catching up over beers and Thai food in Northville. Luis and I have been friends for over 22 years now! Great to see you two!
After getting to spend most of the week with family, we also got to spend some time with friends. Last Friday we spent most of the day hanging out with the Moore family. We went to the Hands-on Museum, Arbor Brewing Company, and then enjoyed Jerusalem Gardens at their house. It was great to catch up. Hope to see you again soon!
We’re probably not the only family to do this, but a Felty tradition has long been to play putt-putt golf while on vacation. Last week we chose Putterz in Ypsilanti, which happens to be a place that Clare and I went on dates a couple times when we lived in Ann Arbor. The kids liked it so much we played a second round later in the day.
