Next Stop: Italy

I know it hasn't been very active here in my blog lately, but now I must have a week long break as I won't have access to Internet.

Our car is packed full and this afternoon we will head south. With one pit stop in the Northern Italy (lets hope there will be no earthquakes!), we will drive here:


Last year, we celebrated the birthday of my mother-in-law (with the logic I have used in naming our family members, I guess I should call her Oma Welle), in this same house, about 70km north from Rome. Present were the families of Herr Welle's brother and sister, plus the grandparents. Total of 8 adults and 6 kids, ages ranging from 7-month-old Fräulein to her 10-year-old cousin.

The house was just perfect for this kind of group. There were enough bedrooms and each room had a bathroom, so the families had their privacies. But there was also a large dinner table both inside the house and on the patio, where we all could gather together for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


This year, we will celebrate my father-in-law's (Opa Welle) birthday. We had such a great time last year that it was decided to do it all over again this year.

So, Italy here we come!

Please, keep you fingers crossed that we will all survive this trip calmly and harmoniously! No, I'm not afraid of spending one week in the same house with Herr Welle's family, but the drive there is 1200km, so I am a bit worried how we will manage that with Fräulein...

*****
Lähdemme tänään ajelemaan Italiaan, missä juhlistamme appiukkoni syntymäpäivää yhdessä Herr Wellen sisarusten ja näiden perheiden kanssa. Olimme samassa paikassa myös viime vuonna, kun anoppini täytti pyöreitä. 
Talo on aivan täydellinen tähän tarkoitukseen ja viime vuonna oli niin mukavaa, että täytyyhän reissu ottaa uusiksi! Mutta mitenköhän Fräulein selviää 1200km:n ajomatkasta...

Oi, näyttääpä ihanalta! Nauttikaa reissusta, ehkä sen ajomatkankin kestää kun tietää mikä paratiisi perillä odottaa :) Suomessa juhlitaan uusia ylioppilaita sateen ja noin 10 C merkeissä...
