January Means Planning For Summer

by farrah on January 7, 2016 · 2 comments

We’ve learned that we have to figure out (and book) our summer holidays as soon as possible. What’s nice about this is that it gives us time for summer dreaming during these dark days of January. Another thing I really like about it is that it gives me time to think back on our previous summer vacations, and reflect on the good, bad and otherwise. This reminded me of course, that I never went back and wrote about our fantastic lodging in the Lake Como region of Italy. I’ll do that soon!

A new page

I ended up getting distracted (surprise!) and created a page that links many of the Ritter family approved places to stay, in case you’re heading to any of these locations this summer. Some I have reviewed in stand-alone blog posts- and you can find them in the ‘Where We’ve Been‘ page. This new page merely has direct links to the places we stayed. If it’s not listed- that means I don’t recommend it 🙂 Also I noticed that the cottage we stayed at in France (Normandy) is no longer listed as a rental so it must have sold.

I’m also taking suggestions. If you have stayed somewhere with YOUR family (not hearsay) give me the link and tell me where/how many people it sleeps. You don’t have to give me a review- just the links, please. People can always go over to Trip Advisor or whatever and read up on their own time if they’re serious about something. I know I do!

So how’s that for two whole blog posts in a week?! Wow!

Have you already been in the north of Holland? This is a beutifull campsite where you can rent a tent or caravan. Nice for a weekend! http://www.it-kruswetter.nl/en/

Thanks Ellen, that’s on the agenda for the summer for sure! My husband just got a tent and the boys got sleeping bags for Christmas 🙂
