Building a Caravan – The Walls and What Goes Within

Parts one and two of this project are here: #1 – #2 So, now we have acquired most of the stuff, so much so, that we have been able to start the actual building of this thing. In the midway of April, with Waffle’s dad’s determined leadership the walls begun to rise. The walls obviously…

Building a Caravan – Where to begin?

You should start from the bottom. So we were sitting a while at the drawing table. Thinking out the dimensions and what kind of space we would be comfortable to live in and what would be reasonable to drag behind our car. The internal dimensions are 145 cm of height, 300 cm of length and…

The most beautiful mornings

If you have been following our travels, you might already guess, that this post is not going to be filled with hotel recommendations. Instead this is a list of the 5 most memorable mornings, in the most memorable places around Europe for this duo of travellers. They are listed chronologically, since it would be way too difficult…

From Brand New Sneakers to a Half Marathon

Yeah, so. There was this evening, some alcohol and one pretty persuasive, determined and stubborn colleague. The end result is, that Waffle went and promised that he would partake in a run of 20 kilometres in the coming May 2017. I got attached to that promise as well. Oh dear. As the following day came…

A Weekend Starts With Delirium

The heat in Belgium was still going on when the wonder of a weekend was brought upon us. A bit earlier we had decided to go and visit the brewery of the family Huyghe, in Melle, a small town right at the corner of Gent. We were foolishly thinking that an indoor activity would be…

Bad Luck and Shooting Stars at Les Hemmes

It was time to drag our buggy gear on the road again. Les Hemmes had been enjoying low tide for half a week already, so the beach would be as perfect as it gets. Also the forecast was promising rather nice winds. Needless to say, we were both excited to get going. We reached France…

The endless Les Hemmes

Friday the 13th. The day that started our long weekend of hippie beach life. Our car was packed full again, we had a special guest with us, from Waffle’s work. We had also some extra special goodies for the birthday of one of the buggiers. The car was feeling like a mammoth slumbering through the…

Finding your better half while hiking

I was just thinking, how common it is nowadays to find your boyfriends, girlfriends and everything related online. Tinder and such things can be found from the phones of just about every single person. Nothing wrong with that of course. It is easy, fast and convenient. Rather more so, than merging yourself into a forest for…

Hiking in Hotton

Our hiking season of this year has been opened. We explored yet another region of Belgium, being the beautiful Hotton!

Koli – How I got hooked to Hiking

This is the story of my first ever over night hiking trip. The trip, that got me hooked to this style of life. In the landscape that is so dear to Finnish people, Koli national park.

Sink or Swim

So many of these learning experiences in my life are related to horses. This particular one, has to do with the very first steps of owning one of those magnificent animals. I got her when I was 12. She was 12 too. I had 6 years of experiences about life among horses, mainly in riding schools…
