I am humbled by one thing though, the willingness of complete strangers to host us for a night or two. We all watch the news and get more and more frightened to step outside of our front door, because of 'strangers' but a handful of complete strangers have opened their homes to us. So far we have offers of hosting in germany, Italy and croatia, plus a city tour of Zuirich. I love that there are still people in the world who are open to making new friends and to meeting new people. Those are my tribe and I am so looking forward to meeting some of them.
I am down to the last few items on my to-do list. I am still working out some way of mozzie proofing the van so that we can have windows open while we sleep. I am a mozzie banquet and there is a heatwave across mainland europe (yay! sunshine) so I have been wrestling with velcro and netting, but I think I am winning. Then all I have to fix up is a shade/wind panel for the awning and make those chair covers, pack the van and we are off!
Its probably a measure of the people that we are, that we are devoting as much space to books and craft materials as clothing.
