When I asked my two daughters if they wanted anything special when I went to Europe, they promtly demanded new gymnastics leotards.
Apparently when you are 4 and 7 you have an intimate knowledge of where good lycra comes from, and Europe must be it. So every night when I have Skyped my family at home, the question is always asked of how my search is going for their new leotards…and up until just now it had gone very poorly. Searching for something very specific in a country where you don’t speak the language is doomed to fail, and it had.
When I was lamenting about my search to Heiko from Dräger, he arranged to meet up with me this afternoon to help in my quest for said leotard. Heiko found a lovely little shop, which I never would have managed to find on my own. Even better was that shopping was followed by Lubeck’s best ice-cream. Win-Win.
I feel like this has been the most stressful part of my journey so far – so now when I call home in a few hours, I can finally answer the inevitable question with a yes!
