Sunny winterdays

Clouds were gone in the last week and the days were incredibly bright. Everyday the sun stood noticeably higher in the sky, the days were noticeably longer and ice crystals were sparkling in the sun. On sunday it was especially beautiful. Just 2 days earlier some fresh snow had fallen, but the temperature dropped below…

High Venn

Recently I went hiking in the High Venn in Belgium. It is a highmoor in the Eifel and a super inetresting place. We went hiking on what was the rainiest day I experienced since my time in Sweden and in this area probably the rainiest day since May... Oh how I loved it! Even though…

Explorations

For a few days, I drove around quite a bit to explore the area around where I was staying in Sweden and see the different landscapes this place had to offer. I followed some small streets and found little creeks and lakes in the middle of the forest. The sun was shining so bright, that…
