A bit of the sun and the wind: Salacgriva

Today we had sunny weather here in Salacgriva. Still windy, but sunny! No rain! All the ground is soaking wet and muddy, so girls still need rain boots and the wind asks for warm fleece jackets, too. Baltic sea is 2 km away from us, so Janis took two bigger girls to the sea. To play in the sand. After a […]

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” […]

Day 2 at Leidersbach: Laundry and Walk

We were woken up by bells of the church at 10 am. How do you like that!? At 10 am! We stayed for one more day in Leidersbach. The weather was so nice – not hot, not too sunny, cool and partly cloudy – not raining. That playground and horses I wrote about yesterday weren’t in our sight. Today we did […]

No way! Leidersbach

No way! After having a good time in Lich, we couldn’t head back home. It just didn’t feel right. We all felt like we need to travel a bit more…. just a bit more before we head back. We drive a bit down (away from Latvia) and stayed at a funny small city called Leidersbach. It’s funny cause there is one […]

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 […]

Without a destination

Now we are free. Free to go whenever we like. We left family friends and the beautiful/magical garden and drove to the closest shop to buy some food and water. We wanted to visit the city and see the castle up the hill. The frequent need of toilet spoiled all the so called plan. We drove only 6 km. Don’t […]

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 […]

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! […]

Getting ready: cleaning treiler / caravan

This is THAT day! Finally, we can’t wait any longer and decide to bring our caravan home to clean it up and start to install solar panels on the roof and move in. Here is the video how it looks inside and my feelings…. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpwYHJiBWqg&w=1280&h=720] It was easy to clean… it wasn’t dirty and it’s about ~8 square meters!!! […]

Our travel trailer trip through Europe

It would be our first travel trailer trip. Actually, the third trip for me and Janis together, the second trip with kids (actually the first was 4 years ago when Nelle was only 9 months old and she was the one and only kid: we visited our friends in Germany!). AND this is our first trip as a family with […]
