bikes & boats..

yes i am still among the living, don't you worry. i haven't been on holiday, not having a long vacation, not going to either. i just treasure the couple of days off here and there, especially when we're both free at the same time.

i did a bit of sightseeing with my mum, saw interesting architecture and we ate pancakes in some kind of barn. last week saskia and i rented a boat and went sailing for a day and a half. while saskia has more experience and is a better sailor than i am, i'm not completely useless; i can actually manage quite well. for those of you who know about boats: we were on a polyvalk. i'm not sure how to translate that; i suggest you google for some images if you want to know what it looks like. it was awesome! we should do that more often, preferably when the waters are a little less crowded, though i doubt if they rent out boats off-season.

oh & i've been watching the tour de france every day. but more about that later..

what i didn't do is go see the new harry potter film. i'm confident i'll see it soon, i'm just not in that much of a hurry. i have also been on a sort of (mini) support-break, but very few of you may have noticed that.. :)

in an attempt to remove as many distractions as possible, we didn't take a camera or even our cell phones. but with too many people being way too loud there was no peace and quiet to be found anyway.

Wiggins is in great form and doing us proud.
Do you watch the tour on your own or with family?

have you read the harry potter books? some opinions of the movie vary a bit, partly because of changes/cuts from the book and all...

yes, i've read all the harry potter books. i don't know. two people whose opinion and taste i respect both said they've done quite a good job with this movie.

ah, cool. I liked it, but haven't read the books, but I've heard of people complaining due to changes that were made. when I heard what was changed, I didn't think it was that major again, mostly. hope you enjoy!
