We're Going Camping

We're going to Campingplatz Dilsberg.
We're going together with another family, for the first time.

We would not just to camp out, but specifically to watch the fireworks display at the Dilsberg Castle. I am sure it would be a wonderful experience, especially for the kids; as they would have a playmate there, too. And for us adults, friends to catch up stories with and simply to hang out with -- really a trip to look forward to.

We've even divided our what to bring food -- we'd bring the salad ( as we have fresh veggies from the backyard garden) and they would bring the marinated steaks and wursts for our barbecue dinner. Yum!

What's in our list to bring?

- the tent, the folding chairs and a folding table
- the gas stove, gas and the box of camping utensils
- the sleeping sacks, the pillows and the air beds and the air pump plus a bedsheet
- towels, kitchen towels, garbage bags, foam and soap
- toiletries, toilet paper
- solar lamp and flashlights, beach umbrella
- salt and pepper
- thermometer, medicine, plaster
- insect spray and aloe first
- video camera and digicam plus extra batteries

Our basket is already stacked with snacks and toys for the kids. The cool bag is already filled with bottles of water and some juice. We simply need to add the eggs, the canned goods, the wursts; as they are still in the ref to cool. And before driving out of our city, we'd pass by a bakery to buy fresh loaves of bread!

Then, we are ready!

That's quite an experience. I would like to take Kelvin camping too. When he's bigger maybe.

It's one of the nice things about Europe, isn't it? There's a lot of lovely places to camp in & it's very common.

Pictures next ha?

Finally, you're camping out :D ! Next time you can visit us in the South and I have Pinay friend who works at a camping site who's married to a German and fluently speaks the language! That would be fun D !

Enjoy and happy camping!

julie - i heard before that there's a camping place there in pinas and you could even rent those camping vans... or else pwede naman mag back to basic kaso mo it would be a bit difficult with kids around

vk - may nakitang schnecken si hubby mabuti na lang daw asa labas lang ng tent, hehehe. inalis nya bago kami magising para daw hindi matakot ang mga bata. no problem na with IC's tüte, i'll buy one for her. sorry i cant call dahil wir sind immer unterwegs!
