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! […]

The 200 ha area is home to approximately 600 Latvian plant species including 37 species that […]

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 […]

Permaculture Festival…

Will see. I’m interested in soil regeneration and compost building and Janis in renewable energy technologies. So, […]

How to travel with kids

Now I have my head full of ideas what we need to pack, how we need to pack, what we need inside the car, what in the caravan. Where to go, how much km we can drive in one day, how to relax and how to entertain 3 kiddos. But when I’ll get home – I’ll get into “normal life” […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
