Happy Easter everyone - What are your plans ?

We might go to Colmar.

There is a spring festival and kids can look for hidden eggs.

Re: Happy Easter everyone - What are your plans ?

But it takes ages to get there. They already had some severe traffic jam yesterday.

Train is better, but might also be quite crowded.

Re: Happy Easter everyone - What are your plans ?

Gonna get my son over the easter weekend, it is the very first time I have been allowed to have him for a few days, can go and stay at their place in Augsburg, no problem, but take him away? Nope!
So filled the jeep up, his mother would murder me I took him on the bike, and we will be off to Lago Como, or as it is a favorite for the elder crowd, AKA lago Coma.

Who cares, just us, two small tents and lotsa Pizza, swimming and lots of loafing around.
Gonna be fun.

Keep off the Autobahn, it's going to be murder this wekend!

Why not go camping on Starnbergsee or Chiemsee in Bavaria?

Re: Happy Easter everyone - What are your plans ?

Don't forget there has been very little rain since Christmas.

On Swiss TV last night they explained that half of Switzerland has banned grilling and BBQ in the woods.

Yes; here's the current status by canton according to the "20 Minuten" (story)

Red: completely prohibited
Pink: prohibited in and near woods
Green: allowed
Grey (canton Zug): decision still pending

05.30 wake up
05.50 go jogging/power walking for 45 min and watch the sunrise on Rawai beach
07.00 2 hours of kickboxing training
09.30 healthy breakfast
10.15 ride bicycle to the beach
15.00 ride back to my bungalow
16.00 45min on the rowing machine or ride 30 min to the market
17.00 90 minute thai massage with oil
18.45 healthy dinner
20:00 back to the bungalow
21.00 bedtime
It is just about time for my massage now.
HAPPY EASTER to you all! Please eat some chocolate for me
