Our holiday in Germany - Our lovely campsite

A view of Saarburg from the top of the hill

During our holiday in Germany we stayed in large mobile home on a lovely campsite on top of a hill overlooking Saarburg. The road up was steep and winding with a total of fifteen bends from the bottom to the top (Mark counted them!), so the view from the top was excellent! It was quite possibly the nicest campsite we have ever stayed on and both the swimming pool and the play park were a huge hit with the Podlings. One of the things I love about Germany is their use of wood and the play park was certainly the most charming I think I have ever seen. I took lots of photos of it as I know the children will want to remember it. We loved our time here and would definitely stay there again.

Breakfast and Angry Birds on the iPad!

Stories at bedtime with his current favourite book "Cars and Trucks and Things That Go" by Richard Scarry which Alex calls his 'funny car book'

Man make fire! We had a barbecue on our last night. We were all set with lots of meat, coal, firelighters and a shiny new bucket barbecue when we realised that we didn't have any matches! I improvised some splints out of a torn up brown paper shopping bag and used the gas hob to light them. I then passed them out the window to Mark who managed to eventually get the thing going. He produced a fabulous meal for us on this little bucket!

Emma was quite sad on our last visit to the park as she loved it there and was already missing it.
