We are already on the road again. A lot has happened in the last month, we have made some decisions and filled up our family & friends memory. We went to the dentist and the family doctor, renewed our living will, went to systemic counselling (family counselling) a few times and shared our Felix with hundreds of mosquitoes. We will write down some of the experiences here bit by bit. We'll spare you and ourselves the mosquitoes.
Our visit home, which was actually only supposed to last a month or two, also included some business appointments. We met the authors of the Publishing Blog for a barbecue in Lenzburg. It's always nice to see people in person again. Here it happened that we invited ourselves to Hans-Peter and Therese's house the very next day. Because when we meet their daughters, their parents are not far away.
Both are no longer in the publishing world, but that doesn't stop us from continuing to meet these wonderful people who are dear to us.
So we spent the night in the forest high above Brugg and set off for the Räbhüslifescht at noon. What we didn't know was that there are vineyards here near Brugg. We don't care, we don't like wine. But vineyards look romantic and the Räbhüüsli of the individual winegrowers opened their doors and gardens for a pleasant tour and above all for cosy, communal eating and drinking.
First of all, we were able to warmly embrace Hans-Peter, Therese and Corinne. We were so happy to see them again. So we hung the probably usual wine glass chest bags around our necks, boarded a high-horsepower tractor trailer and let ourselves be driven up to the vineyard in the midday sun and certainly 30°. From here, there were about 12 stations to master. (It was clear from the start that we would not manage all of them!)
Every now and then a band played (which we then somehow tried to escape, as they only had a few songs in their repertoire and followed our pace from Rebhüsli to Rebhüsli). The food on offer ranged from croissants with apple sauce to tarte flambée, cakes of all kinds and burgers. Last but not least, there was even Chinese pan and salmon toast. The deeper we got, i.e. the more wine taverns and wine tastings we passed, the more "interesting" (i.e. the more "bumpy") the behaviour of the many wine tasters became.
We had such a wonderful time together, catching up once again. And above all, we are glad that we met again in good (or at least better?) health - because we realised once again that health is one of the most important goods after all - and with heartfelt and sincere interest in each other.
Thank you very much for the wonderful time we spent together. It will remain in our memories.
Oh, and whether there was good wine, though? I have no idea. For us wine philistines, it's so irrelevant.
Merci for "travelling with us

Road trip realities
How we manage to live in the van
Leben pur! Unterwegs. Whether at icy -30 °C in the Lapland winter or in the sand of the Tunisian desert, whether in the left-hand traffic of England or along picturesque dream coasts of Europe. Whether in the hot summer of Turkey or in the "interesting" traffic of Georgia.
We report on frozen sliding doors, living together on 9.5 square metres, the inevitable sand in the desert and unforgettable ferry trips. We look at how we make do with little and still have way too much.
