France 2014

I’ve been back from my three week vacation in France since July 12th. Yet I was too busy (or lazy) to blog about it.
It was lovely, as always, the weather was so so, the waves were mostly good. The last week t got quite windy but at least we didn’t get sand blown in our faces :) So all good.
I went jogging every other day which was soo nice and relaxing and amazing. Hearing the ocean and the chirrs of the crickets. Just lovely. We also enjoyed good food and lots of sweets and alcohol.
Let the photos talk…

I’m all set

books for vacation
I ordered five books which I picked up at my local book dealer yesterday afternoon. Got one book from my mother in law and one from each sister and had three here to read. So now I’m ready for my beach (and surf) vacation. Well, almost ready, I have to pick up the beach-ball set I ordered via Amazon next week :)

Walking home from work

If you get off work early, if it’s lovely sunny weather outside and you have nothing planned for the day – walk home.

In my case, walk 20 km home and lose 977 kcal.

I left work at 12:30 and got home at around 17:30.
But I did have a few stops on the way, had to pee badly twice, stopped for a cup of coffee, had to try on a skirt I saw in a clothes store, got a veggie smoothie, stopped at the book store, stopped to take off my shoes (what a big mistake), stopped to get some bread and last but not least stopped to get three big cups of ice-cream in a big cone <3

My feet hurt so bad because I made two big mistakes:

  1. Start my tour with Flip Flops: I walked almost 5 km in my Flip Flops and didn’t notice how it started hurting between my toes. I then put on my Converse Ballerinas but took those off after 1km as well. Finally I put on my running shoes and all was good, but it was too late already, my feet had water blisters, see:
    feet

    Why did I wear Flip Flops in the first place you wonder? I wanted my feet to get tanned because tanned feet are so fine :)

  2. Take off my running shoes after 16km and put them on again: Everybody knows to not take off your shoes! I sat down, took them off and just let them rest. Then I put them back on again and the rubbing of the blisters got worse. At the end I could hardly walk anymore and right now I’m sitting on the couch for hours because I still can hardly walk.

But it was a lovely walk, I saw so much, the weather was amazing, I got a nice tan on my legs and did the most out of my Friday afternoon.
