My happy place

As you know we were in the Berlin for a few days and the main reason was to see Viola – Nelles Godmother and to celebrate Nelles 5th birthday. We decided to leave the caravan near family friend’s house and drive all the way (more than 400km) to the Berlin just by the car. That was a good decision. We […]

Nelle turns 5!

Nelle turned 5! She had her birthday in one of the Berlin’s park. The day started early and Nelle got here birthday crown from Godmother and called herself a princess. We woke up early – had breakfast and went to the park to be sure we had the BEST spot in the whole park. And we did. We sat under […]

Having fun & walk in Berlin

Berlin. Oh. I am surprised! I can’t even describe my feeling. First of all – I haven’t been in a big city for a long long long time! These past 3 years living in the countryside made me country girl! Nelle met her godmother and we stayed with here. She tried to convince me to go out and have a drink in a restaurant. […]

Few days without driving

Our first destination was family friends that live near Coburg. Last time we saw them was 6 years ago. There is only one change since that and that is – I’m a mom. That’s a big change! I remember how I and Janis were daydreaming in the garden back then… We drove more than 1600 km in three days and […]

Crossing the border and pit stopping a lot

Since we had long, long drive through Poland and we all were tired we decide to drive “slower”. Making more pit stops along the way. We didn’t want to develop disgust for traveling to our girls… It was hard. It seams that I also need time “off the car” and we stopped every 30-50 km 🙂 We start from Łozina in […]

700 km in the car with the kids

DAY 2 was …easy!? Our goal was to get through Poland in one day. It sounded unreal!  We are going slow (80 km/h – otherwise the caravan shakes the car) and Janis isn’t feeling good. We started from Alytus, Lithuania and ended in Łozina, Poland at 2 am! We can’t go any further – it was terrible for all of us […]

Getting worse!?

Oh it looks like it is getting worse! We started our journey today. And that’s good! But there is “BUT”. Janis is getting ill. He is having angina and he looks tired. Can’t swallow, can’t speak… His body temperature is getting higher and higher. And… he is the only driver! We are in Lithuania and hope to continue our journey! […]

Worried

We are still in Latvia. Can’t start our journey. Yesterday Janis installed solar panel on the roof of caravan. We where happy – finally it’s there and we can go. But then suddenly our caravan started to blink like a Christmas tree. Safety first! 1am Janis discovered where the problem was and started to fix it. But couldn’t finish it […]

New staff

 Today I had two knew employees in my kitchen…. or should I say outside the kitchen! Girls saw me washing dishes outside and took the job over. I don’t know if they will show up tomorrow but today they got upset when I told that all the dirty dishes are clean. Happy Latvian mom, Ilze Edit ​ ​ ​ ​ […]

Foraging for Tea: Cowslip

Primula veris I love to forage for tea! When I was little we did it together with my grandmother – Agafija. I thought it was hard work. The basket was too big and flowers were too small or not enough. Yesterday I did it with my girls and their grandma (my mom) and suddenly I saw myself 30 years ago […]
