Right after heading north from Bordeaux leaving on a 35 degree day I got into a mean thunderstorm and the temperature dropped about 15 C up in the Bretagne. The ferry-ride was sunny, totally glassy and super smooth again. I didn´t really know what to make oft hat, but my friend Raffi summed it up pretty good, up North is a bit like a femme fatale – it can give you the sweetest moments and be an absolute nightmare some other times. And so it was, there were some brilliant moments surfing an 8ft. pointbreak or a barelling beachbreak by myself for hours in the nicest sunset or you would be sitting there in 12 degrees hailing winds and torrential rain while everyone back home was sweating their asses of. Well, and there´s still worse things, being in one oft he most beautiful enviroments in the world, being able to do whatever you want every day and take some time to explore the place, play guitar, read and so on.
My sister came around for a week which was real fun and probably one oft he very few trips we´ve done since we were kids.
Now off for a short visit to Munich before hitting the road again up here with the boys next Saturday.
