Outside Is Better!

Micro Adventures Are Everywhere!

As you may have noticed, I’ve not been very active on social media lately. I’ve been busy with other stuff and wanted to enjoy my free time outside to have a few micro hiking adventures.

This drawing is part of a new series of outdoor adventure themed cards. Coming soon to my Etsy shop. If you like this you can also follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates.

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?⁠

My Solo Hiking Trip To The Canary Islands.

This is the illustrated recap of my recent solo trip to Gran Canaria. I took a small break from winter and visited the beautiful and sunny island of Gran Canaria. As you can tell from this drawing I enjoyed nature, the food and the lovely weather. I was so happy to be back in shorts and sandals. I also had some great “accidental” adventures (hence the #adventurechicken), met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. It was quite perfect! For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!

Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!
