Today we are going off on our summer holiday, on what is known as Black Saturday, the busiest day of teh year at teh Dutch airports and on the French motorways.
A year ago on this day, we woke up on the train from Istanbul to Konya, pulling into Konya and spending the day there. Lovely clear blue skies, hot, exotic.
Today we are flying away from more rain here in Amsterdam and heading north... to Stockholm...
I have to go there for work and we are making a nine day holiday of it. We'll see... apparently the weather should be better later in the week!
