We’ve had the best Christmas adventure!

Adventure is always welcome in our family. But we never had a Christmas adventure till now.

We weren’t even sure if we would have a proper Christmas this year, with all the problems we had so far. It seemed liked everything was against us. Even the car broke down 2 days before our planned trip.

We made plans to spend Christmas at the country side, at Johnny’s uncle. He lives pretty far away, in the north of the country and the roads are not exactly good. There is no highway and there was also the chance that it would snow so much the roads would be closed.

But, luck was on our side. The car was fixed with a day delay (can’t complain at all, we are happy it got fixed without killing our budget for the holidays). And it didn’t snow at all (on the day of our departure).

Johnny’s parents went ahead by train on Sunday, and we left on Monday. It was me, John, Pluto and we had two guests with us. A friend from with her dog, Maya.

This is where the Christmas adventure starts.

We had to meet up an hour early so the two dogs would burn their energy. It was chaos in the house. It was so funny to see two huge dogs running around and hitting things, while the cat (Marlanu’) was watching unimpressed by what was happening.

 When we got in the car, Maya wanted to see everything while Pluto just wanted sleep.

It took us 6 hours to get to our destination. It was already late when we got there and all we could think of was food and sleep.

But we spent 4 wonderful days. Johnny had his fun while I had my peace and quiet. I finished 3 books: A Painted House by John Grisham, Animal Farm by George Orwell and The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. I’ve read late into the night near the fireplace, while Johnny and Pluto were sleeping like babies.

It was fun, it was relaxing and most important it was a Christmas spent with family and friends. That and on the 26th of December we’ve reached a huge milestone: 7 years of being together, for the good and the bad.

 Our Christmas adventure has come to an end and we are now waiting for this year to end (hopefully without anymore incidents or problems). 2015 will be a full year with a lot of changes. It will also be a year where we will have to work harder than ever so things could go back to normal.
