It was time to leave the country. Time for some sun, good food and simply doing nothing. We chose Corsica since we got great tips about it. A great beautiful island. I would love to go back.

It’s always a bit scary to go out in the sun after being hidden away all winter. I feel so naked. But summer is my favorite part of year. I don’t understand people who feels differently.

This is the pirate dame edna look – Beppe went for most of the trip.

I used to be like “There is something about Mary’s” aunt, spraying sun tan oil all over and sunbathing on mirrors. Now it’s SPF 50, shade, glasses and a dorky hat on top. And hopefully I live until I’m 150 years old.

Vive la France! When I went to visit my mum in Belgium she always kept BabyBels in the glove compartment for me. On this trip we realised that the wax was A kind of perfect travel play doh.

While Della’s been swimming forever. Now even the swim with socks thing…

Beppe only realized the last hour before the flight back home that swimming was swell. He refused leaving the pool. I am happy he got that far but he kind of missed all the fun all week.

I love the messy handwriting of a first year writer.

Where are you going on vacation?

I went to Corsica when I was 16 with my sister, my brother-in-law is from Corsica and his family still lives there. The trip was like an “out of school” celebration, and it was fantastic. Best moment: Going in the mountains on a tiny train to a beautiful little town. (The conductor rearranged the wagons so all the Germans rode in the back and me and my sister in the front. Hmmm.) Craziest moment: When they blew up the flat two floors above us because they thought a drug dealer lived there. We woke of shattering glass in the middle of the night!

Maybe we’ll go back next summer with surfer friends! We have vague plans.

This year, all that’s set is Norbergfestivalen. My man’s the booker and friends are coming to play from UK and Germany. It’ll be lots of fun.

Haha låter som en galen resa! Kul med festival! Heja er – isbelle

We’re staying in Holland (again) this summer, because of…. oh well. Long story I won’t bother you with. Hoping for a little less rain though. Since we’ll be camping. For three weeks. With a tent. Hmmm.

Herma- I love the idea of camping but I think I m too comfortable. But I hope you will have sun and a great time! -Isabelle

First of all, love the new design! I worked in Île Rousse and in Calvi a couple of years ago and I’m in love with the hole island. So I’m filled with envy right now..! The plan is to be able to go back soon again! This summer is all about Scandinavia, Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen!
By the way, I listened to you when you were in Gävle and I got super-inspired! So thanks for that(been a dedicated follower of the blog ever since) and keep up the good work! Have a nice weekend!

Hej Hanna – tack för det- kul att du lyssnade! Och det var i ill rousse som vi var också, me like. Hoppas du får en fin sommar!

That looks so nice! Can imagine you enjoyed that vacation :-)

We’re planning to go to NY this fall.
Perhaps not as much sun, but hopefully I’ll enjoy it as much!

Happy weekend.

Hey hey Isabelle,I have been a fan of Dos Family for more a year.I was pregnant then. Now my son Leonardo is nearly 10 months and throughout this whole period your posts have been just what I needed for my engine to run. I normally read your blog when I’m nursing and by the time I’d finish nursing I get up with great energy from your guys. I couldn’t be more grateful for who you are and what you do.
In any case, the day after tomorrow we’re going to hit the road from Turin( where we live) for Isola d’Elba, camping.It’ll be the first time for Leo and I hope he’s going to have fun.
ps: sorry about the previous unfinished reply, it was kind of hard to nurse and write at the same time.
