A long day on the road

After a long day on the road, my Dad and I arrived in Jönköping around 20:00h. As I have written in my previous post, we started driving in the morning at around 6:30h and we drove all day. From Neuss to Puttgarden, then with the ferry to Rodby, a few hours driving through Denmark, then…

Leaving Germany

So today we started our drive. Not exactly at 6:00h in the morning as we had planned, but we were on the road at around 6:30h. Right now we are on the road in Denmark on our way to the second ferry. The first one went from Puttgarden to Rødby and marked my departure from…

My last day in Germany

Tomorrow is the day that I will finally start off to Sweden, so today I mainly spent packing the rented van and some last belongings to get everything ready. I started the day off taking some last pictures in our garden, that was covered in frost this morning. What a beautiful sight to wake up…

Farewells

There'll Always Be Unforgettable Memories Behind Your Goodbyes. The last weeks and days have been full of farewells and goodbyes. And even though I have chosen to move to another country, saying goodbye to so many people that I appreciate and love and enjoy having in my life was one of the hardest parts in…

Anticipation

I can count the days until my move to Sweden. And that's exactly what I am doing! 10 days until I arrive at my new home, 9 until I leave everything that I have known behind and start the journey up north. I am already checking the weaher forecast everyday and I am so happy…

Countdown

Only a few weeks are left before I move to Sweden. 2,5 weeks to be precise! I finished sorting out things that I want to take with me today and now I only have the things from my bedroom left to pack into boxes. If you're curious what that looked like, check out the following…

Weekend at the beach

In my latest post I wrote about arriving in our holiday home in a tiny village called Groede in the very south of the Netherlands. I had planned to write more about that way earlier, but I was much too sick to do so! I was sick on the weekend itself and did not much…

Arrival in Groede

Yesterday I started my journey to Groede in the very south of the Netherlands. It is a tiny village that I have known since my childhood and I have spent countless vacations with my family here. There are numerous childhood memories connected with this place for me, that made it almost unbearable to think I…

Walking on new paths

A few weeks ago I wrote about some big changes happening in my life at the moment, however I could not quite put into words yet what was/is happening. Right now I am on a short trip to a little village in the south of the Netherlands and I finally feel like I have somewhat…

Quince harvest

Last weekend I got to harvest my parent's quince tree. I had noticed that it was heavy from all the fruits for quite a while, but the harvest can only start after the first frost. So after we had that 2 weeks ago, I just waited for a nice day to relieve our tree of…
