Sunlight

After some cloudy weeks the sun is back again. Now the days are noticeably longer (the sun sets after 16:00h and rises shortly after 8:00h) and the sun rises higher up in the sky with each day. On one hand that makes me kind of sad, because it means that the super short winter days…

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…

Ice fishing

On saturday I went ice-fishing with a friend. We started in Bispgarden and drove to a nearby lake, where we drilled some holes into the ice... It was quite thick and we were lucky, that the drill was just a bit longer than the ice was thick! This was the lake The surroundings were amazingly…

Walk in the woods

Today was a beautiful day outside, so I took the chance to go for a walk in the woods. The warm temperatures of the last few days have melted away a fair amount of snow, so in the forest bits and pieces of bushes and smaller plants started to show again. The snow itself was…

So much to do/days in Sundsvall

The last few days I spent either in Sundsvall or at home unboxing. I feel like I want to get so many things done at once, that there is no time for anything else. Not everything went according to plan now and some things turned out more complicated than I thought. I am currently only…

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…

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…
