1/7: Paolo is two!

Happy birthday Paolo!

5-6/6: Peak district

We concluded our tour by joining our friends at the Peak District, where they were camping.

We also visited Chatsworth House: a huge tenancy (where they filmed Pride and Prejudice) with amazing gardens.

There was also an older time dressing room that Agnese and Rachele enjoyed very much.... (not only them... even people looking at us!).

A fantastic vacation overall!

2/6 - 4/6: Lake District, central and north side

More pictures about our tour.
A dragon fly hunting is happening at Derwent Water, near Keswick.

At Seatoller we had a brief hiking. All of us in the picture (one of the rare occasions).

Buttermere was my favourite spot!

Ullswater was the latest lake we visited.

30/5 - 1/6: Lake District, South part

From 30th of May till 5th of June we had a family vacation.
As we did last year, we rented a camper van and travelled around.
Here are few sample pictures...

First stop in the Lake district was at the bottom of Windermere lake: Fell Foot Park.

AGNESE is Seven!
We celebrated Agnese's birthday in the camper van - as she wished for since long before...

Rachele had to help to prevent Paolo blowing to the candles...

Esthwaite Water was a fantastic and quite spot where to relax....

Here the girls were enjoying to do some art craft with flowers, while Paolo was testing their strength by breaking them.

Our van at High Cross passage.

A very 'steamy' steam engine train in Haverthwaite. We escaped a raining day by enjoying a tour with an older time train and visiting a beautiful aquarium. And yes, the train was remarkably similar to 'Thomas the engine'.
