we really wanted to go camping on the northern german island of sylt. if i remember it right, that season had been pretty stormy already which made us unsure if we'd be able to manage putting up a tent by ourselves.
our compromise was staying at a youth hostel, the first time in a group room instead of a family room. the other traveling ladies we shared the room with were pleasant and everybody pretty much kept to themselves. at least as far as i can remember. (sylvia might be able to correct me on some details.)
one of the most memorable things was watching the sunsets and sunrises over the ocean from the dunes, always in our chic white rain jackets (which can be seen in the painting) because the weather can change from one moment to the next.
it was a wonderful little trip. now i need to go and dig out the photos (all shot in analog since it happened way back) to see if i can come up with more details to remember and smile about.
have you ever done a "siblings only" trip?
and have you ever stayed at a youth hostel and shared the room with strangers? How did that go?
