Re: Summer Vacation....where are you going?

I am off to Strasbourg to see my Dad's family...and then Murcia (Spain)...to La Manga....some serious tennis and more serious sunbathing....maybe a bit of windsurfing.....I just started windsurfing last summer in the Canaries...but I am addicted to it..

Re: Summer Vacation....where are you going?

You're coming very close to me Sophia. Do you stay in Strasbourg for long?

No vacations for me. Work in my house, like last year, and the previous one, and certainly the next ones! That's the price to pay when you buy an old house that you renovate all by yourself...

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Summer Vacation....where are you going?

None for me either I have my vacations in April/May for the European clay court season, and again in October for the tournaments in Madrid and Basel. Therefore, unlike most people, this high-Summer period is my busiest work time of the year - most of my colleagues are off with their children for the school holidays and I'm working 24/7 to cover for them - and of course, to earn lots of overtime and "flexi time" for when I do want time off! Luckily I am not particularly a "Summer" person - I don't like sun-bathing and I don't enjoy the heat so much - so I'm more than happy spendning this time of year in an air-conditioned office planning my next tennis trip

Re: Summer Vacation....where are you going?

I live about 100kms from Strasbourg, western side. Near a town called Sarreguemines. That would be nice to meet up, yes.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Well I know what you do is great for those people with the kids...but I guess you do get to see a lot of tennis and for that I am very jealous!!! (you know it)...but I need the sun...and I am lucky....I may have the blue Italian eyes but I certainly inherited the Spanish skin...and I feel a lot better when the sun shines....so I can't wait to go to Spain...I need the sun badly....

Re: Summer Vacation....where are you going?

Right now, for summer, I couldn't take classes, so I'm using the time to rest, work, and visit with family and friends. I've already been to North Carolina-although that was work-related. And my family is planning a trip to the state fair later in August before the end of summer. It's been good so far...
And I'm on vacation and go back to work on Monday. Not exactly looking forward to it, but it's work still.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.
