Well, finally, my summer holidays arrived and it was so good to just 'be free to do what I want'. It is always great to reach the end of the academic year and have something to look forward to, something to enjoy and of course share it with the most important people in your life.
We had planned this years summer holiday after about five minutes of unpacking from the last. Of course that might seem a little strange, but I think it's clear that everyone loves a holiday, so you might as well just get on with things and make the most of the whole experience.
With that mind we wanted an adventure and a road trip that would allow us to travel through Europe and see and do as much as we could.
This year we spent a fantastic week in the Eifel region of Germany and then travelled through the rest of Germany, to spend another week in beautiful Austria. A place I love!
Here are some of the images taken on our journey. These are also available on my Instagram feed @garethmate
