On September 4th we were in France when a text from home said they just had an earthquake. Yep, that is what NZ does, occasional earthquakes… so we popped over the river to Germany for dinner. Back in Strasbourg, we were shocked when the barman’s laptop revealed pictures that those back home without electricity would not have seen. It was very hard being so far from home at that time. We did have our own drama that night when unable to sleep we discovered the tell-tale blood spots and ladybug sized creatures, Bed Bugs!
