"You just can't pass an animal without taking a picture of it, can you? I remember our cycling vacation in Skåne, lol!"
Skåne - summer 2003
Very true, I am guilty as charged. We went cycling in the south of Sweden; a fabulous week with great company great weather, and great scenery. Helsingborg by the sea was definitively my favorite town - but towns are rarely the highlights of any trip.
Now, our teamwork was quite interesting. Karin made sure we stopped regularly to eat properly (she's a dietitian today) while I made sure we stopped to enjoy all the animals!
I had actually forgotten how many pictures there was of me together with animals in some way, until I looked in the archives!
Ishtar: "Ah - a cow!" First thought? "Let's feed it!"
Ishtar: "Ah - a foal!" First thought? "Let's bond!"
We did have fun riding Island ponies on our way back (which was Karin's idea!). It was a great week, one of the best vacations I've ever had!
I think that everybody who's been on holiday with me knows that I always end up taking pictures of the beautiful creatures. Even better, right in their midst!!
In 1999, Hanna and I went to Paris together, and what do I find?
... a picture of her posing in front of yellow German flowers...
... Ishtar having a closer look at a German mare & foal...
... and then a goat!
We did end up seeing a lot of Paris though (maybe because they had so few animal distractions?)
We learned so much about French culture (and the fact that you can never walk safely on the Champs Elysées if the color of your hair is blond...). Good thing though that we were good at defending ourselves!
