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! […]

Sunny Sunday Walk

It was sunny and summery weather here in Latvia today! +19C! Most of the summer days are +19C (OK, OK, just 1/4 of all summer days are +19C) here in Latvia. Since we experienced such a lovely weather I put away my computer and Bussines Plan and go for the walk! We didn’t walk much since we have three little […]

Walking in the winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening In the lane, snow is glistening A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland And later on, we’ll conspire As we dream by the fire To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made Walking in a winter wonderland. Ilze P.S. More about the song here.  

Enchanted forest

We can’t imagine a better way to entertain kids and awaken their imagination than a walk into an enchanted forest on a sunny day as it was this Sunday! I call this forest (that is actually more like woods 50 meters away from our house) enchanted cause I and also my girls believe these 100-year-old trees are homes for ferries and […]

Beautiful Christmas Morning (Part 2)

Yesterday I’ve shared beautiful pictures of our Christmas morning.  I will share few more… I’m glad I postpone breakfast for everyone and run outside with the camera. I was a bit selfish but not all the guests and family were up… so… not feeling that guilty 🙂 So beautiful! Ilze

Monster Truck!

My new neighbor Lāsma and I we had a walk a few weeks ago. I have three girls and I went outside for walks constantly.. in the mud, in the snow, in the sand… Never ever had a problem! But look at this! 🙂 This was funny for a moment, but actually – got a bit annoying. We cut our walk cause […]

Early winter morning

Early morning isn’t my thing since I can’t get in bad at the proper time! We have a new daily routine for girls. Previously we woke them up at 7:40AM, then dress them and drive to the kindergarten. They have breakfast there at 9AM. Now. Our new routine is: we are waking them up at 6:40AM, they watch “Paw Patrol” […]

Very Free Range

A few days ago we were visiting Janis uncle and talked about how easy/hard is to keep free range chickens for eggs. I know I’m not that type of person who can remember feed animals every day, and clean after them… As kids, we have rabbits at my grandmother’s house. Me and my brother we gathered food for rabbits, cleaned […]

Puddle selfie

Yesterday wasn’t a good day. It felt like “Friday the 13th. I got a headache. All girls were crying and didn’t wanted to go to kindergarten. I guess they had a wonderful weekend. Mondays are hard in this household especially when the weather is gray and rainy. I had a short walk, a bit longer then I use to, but maybe […]
