Just in time did I remember Second on the 2nd! Please join us on Elisabeth's blog and share an old blogpost.
Here is an inteesting blogpost from the beginning of March 2015. It features some old photos of my parents that I made into a scrapbook page. I have since done a bit of research (and asked my mum) and the photos are probably a few years older than 1955. (Dad bought the bike in 1951)
Here is a blog post about the latest scrapbook page I made.
I found these awesome pictures of my parents and our beloved motorbike, the Maico Mobil, taken in 1955.
The German factories that had been making military motorbikes during WW2, were now producing motorbikes designed for comfort. This Maico Mobil was unique in that respect and my dad loved it. He rode it for many years and I, when I was a child, would ride with him. Happy days!
This is my dad on the (then) new enclosure dam of the Zuider Zee, called the Afsluitdijk.
This is mum posing.
I made this layout for the CSI challenge (Colors, stories and inspirationhttp://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/ )
Their ‘Case File’ 155 had a certain color palette, a sketch and some other guidelines that I followed to make this page.
The journaling reads:
“My dad had an interesting scooter in the fifties. It was called Maico Mobil. I have happy memories as a child, sitting very comfortably on the shaft in front of my dad. Here are some photos taken during a holiday in Germany in 1955. (Note the empty motorway!) Top right is my mum, just posing, as she was always the passenger.”
Thank you for visiting my page,
Have a good week,
