Dutch Staycation Time!

Pieterpad Hiking Trail Forced Staycation

I’m off on a small break. Not to Norway as planned, but a few days of hiking on the Dutch long distance Pieterpad-trail. But first a day of water-sport-fun. Making the most of this forced staycation 😉

I’m keeping my Esty shop open, but won’t start shipping again until Monday. See you later!⁠

Expectations vs Reality: French Holiday Style.

French Holiday Style And Adventures! In Drawings, Of Course.

Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!⁠

Expectations:

Above you can see how I envisioned my French Holiday style. In reality no bikini or aftersun was needed. Raincoat instead.

More Expectations:

We hand planned to be in the water a lot and to try Stand Up Paddling.  In reality: zero time spend in the sea because of the bad weather.

Taking A Break!

Hi everyone! Tomorrow I’m closing my Etsy shop until August 14, because I’m taking a small break. So if you need anything fast, today is your last chance to order until I’m back.

Summer Holiday Style

This is the July page from my 2019 calender. The year is flying by so fast and it’s almost time to start working on next years’ calendar. But first, a little summer break. I’m already looking forward to a few trips, including to Switzerland for the first time ever! What are your summer holiday plans?⁠

Hello July!

Hello July and happy “Half New Year”! 😉

Half of the year is over and for me that’s a perfect time to stop and think about how my year has been so far; Am I on track with the goals that I set for myself at the beginning of the year? (Work and personal) What do I want to do with the second half this year? What do I need to pay more attention too? I just love the feeling of a fresh start half way through the year! I also checked how far I am with my #19for2019 goal list, and I’m doing pretty good except for the trying new recipes. (Just 2 so far!)

What are your plans or goals for the next 6 months?⁠
