Germany in September – Nothing else needed

We had been thinking how Germany has been forgotten in our travel destinations for a while. We have been a lot to France and quite some times to Luxembourg as well, but Germany we had skipped for the whole summer. This error has now been fixed. Photographic evidence of the occurrence can be found here. We have a national…

Rainy days have a purpose too!

Autumn has come. The rain says so. When the rain falls, washing away the colors of the landscapes, dampening the ground, making all outdoor activities feeling like the worst idea you have had since you were born, many people take their blankets and sofas and hot drinks. In our family it is a bit different. For…

A Birthday, Sunset and Kite buggy

Our weekend started with a birthday on Friday. One of Waffles friends was getting older, not that you noticed anything. Such a special man he is, that we thought he might deserve something not so ordinary. So we arranged some fireworks for him. Almost burned a forest, but luckily it had been hellishly rainy for the…

Autumn thoughts

I think I have a gene, a gene that activates always when the autumn comes. The gene makes you think about future and life in general. It also transforms a perfectly abnormal young woman into a warm and cosy Täti-ihminen (Aunty person). Who wants to knit woolly socks, bake until all the baking materials are finished, store…

The love of my life – The tale of a Finn horse

Now the time has come. I have been away from all kinds of horse related animals for almost a year now. That is too much. Way too much. So I started to miss them. Right now. I was 6 when I climbed on top of a horse (pony) for the first time. The legend tells, I was talking about it…

A kite and A buggy and A beach and A birthday!

It was the birthday of Waffle. Yes, even Waffles grow older. Not that you notice it too much. Waffle’s birthday happened to be during a low coef this year. So as always, we were planning to go to Les Hemmes. First though, there was a hot air balloon festival to attend to in Sint-Niklaas. Waffle…

No Lists No Buckets

Bucket lists. I was having a talk with my friend about these things the other day, hence the post. Everybody seems to have their list these days. A list where you have all the things you want to do, see, experience and be a part of. People are living their lives forward. Waiting eagerly the moment they…

Inland Dunes – The Heath – The Heide

Where to begin, I find my self wondering with this post. This is a bit different kind of a thing in respect to what I normally have been writing, since it is not about a certein trip, but about a nature type. There is a thing, a landscape if you wish, called Heide, or Heath in…
