Gone with the Wind

Last week I went camping on a northern German island – Spiekeroog. It is a beautiful little East Frisian island just off the German coast where no cars are allowed. The campground was very natural with little dunes and sandy – just beautiful even so it was difficult to find a flat spot for the tent. In the first night I was sleeping not too well as I was always sliding towards the far end of my sleeping mat. But this is normal when camping and part of the game. During the days we did long hikes along the beaches, went swimming or when it was windier, played with the stunt kite. This mini vacation was only a few days, but really nice and great fun.

In the end the wind increase quite a bit and my tent started to have problems. As we were planning to leave in the evening, I decided to take it down and pack it up. But somehow the tent decided to crash before I was done with packing….
