Winter Vacation with Nordic Blog Friends - Part 1

My dear blog friends, it’s a strange periode for me: First of April I’ll retire. I started my working career in Paris in 1967. Hope to return there and walk around the “old streets” and memorize.
Last week I had the pleasure to meet old blog friends from Sweden and Norway – in Mariestad, Sweden. Here are some photos from that great event.
Mariestad - Shopping 1 
I arrived on Tuesday afternoon, and heated up RennyBA’s leisure appartement waiting for Mrs and Mr LifeCruiser. The next Day we went shopping – you see;-)

Then, on Thursday, when the Sun light up the whole area, we went to the Cathedral of Mariestad.

Sounds like you are all having a great time and you're going to retire soon. Good for you. Then you can do what you want when you and Anna want to do it. Is she going to retire too or just you for now?

Have a terrific day. Hugs to you both. :)
