Grandma’s house

My grandmother Agafia died in the year 2004. Unfortunately, I can’t share a picture of here with you at the moment. I think when I’ll get back home I will find Agafia’s picture and will write a special blog post about her… But for now, I can share a most peaceful place on earth – my childhood memories, my grandmother’s house. Our caravan is […]

Gauja National Park – Ligatne: Cliffs and Nature

Those who follow me since the beginning know that I’m not interested in seeing cities and museums. I love nature! We opened our caravan season on Friday, 4 May by heading to the rural property of our friends’ family near Līgatne (Latvia) in Gauja National Park territory. All the property is suited along the cliff and has a wonderful magical forest! […]

Caravaning – Vinyl flooring

This summer we will be caravaning around Latvia. But first things first. I upgraded our caravan to be more like for us – two grownups and 3 kids under 6 years. Our flooring was carpet and it wasn’t easy to clean! Now it’s Vinyl flooring! It is easy to clean and it was easy to install. Actually, I didn’t install […]

Heavy Rain and Playground

  So.We were in Permaculture festival and it was so hot that we can’t stand the heat and also got worried about the health of our children. Spending whole day in the sun and heat isn’t good for Northen people/children. We decide to visit my brother & co in my home town Salacgriva. We left festival at 20:00 and we […]

Few hours in rainy Hessigheim

We left our favorite free parking space and headed to the another one. We parked here at 11 pm and it was so cold and dark we went straight to bed. We were woken by unheard sound… the wind was blowing away our solar panel! Or at least wanted to! Our solar panel is safe and nicely screwed on the […]

Day 3 at Leidersbach: Rain

Today we decide to stay for one more day in Leidersbach. It was raining and I wanted to clean the caravan. Janis did the grocery shopping and girls “helped” me with the cleaning. At the end, we find few more books and unused stickers…and we didn’t finish with the cleaning! So, doesn’t matter: we are living in the moment, having […]

Are we heading home? Lich.

Germany is big so we decided to go closer to Latvia from Ramsthal…. Why? Janis vacation ends up on 8th of June… but he can take few more weeks off without salary. We still got money to travel a bit and small village Lich that offers a big & free playground is a place we have to visit. So it’s […]

Laundry Day & Playground

Did laundry without losing a sock …. today was a good day! It was an interesting experience. And I can say it’s something that takes all day. We bought our portable washing machine for camper and tried it already while at home. It didn’t work as planned but I guess my expectations was higher than right now. Cause today I […]

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 […]
