With love from Germany (1981)

with-love-from-holland

Dear Hilary, 11.00am Hope you are getting on OK in Norway as I’m sure you are. We have been in Germany 2 days and are really enjoying ourselfs. The weather is really hot – 90°, but as we are not near the sea-side we have to make do with 2 olympic size swimming pools on camp (Army Camp!) and at Winsen Aller there is a lovely lake where we can go wind surfing and water skiing. 12.30am Have been to Hannover tonight with Martin, Alan’s mate – Really nice at night. Will write properly soon Vanessa xx

This card is clearly postmarked ‘BAD HARZBURG 8.8.81’ and I received it shortly after arriving to live and work in Norway.

It sounds as though Vanessa would have preferred a beach holiday to an inland holiday, despite the lake and the swimming pools offered at the military base.

Sadly I have no recollection of Vanessa (or Martin and Alan mentioned in the text)… which is a shame as her writing is plentiful, informative and descriptive 🙂
