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 […]

Hometown Salacgriva

Our next stop was Salacgriva. We all wanted to meet my mom. Girls were sad when we left Gauja National Park, cause they meat wonderful friend Normunds and didn’t want to leave. But when I told that next stop is Salacgriva, they were so happy! Linna especially! So, after a one and a half hour drive, we were in Salacgriva. […]

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 […]

Our beloved caravan

I think I didn’t mention that we pulled out our caravan from neighbors barn (read Jani’s parents barn)! Towed to the car and brought it here!     It feels like summer can begin! I know it’s far from summer cause wind just pull up our trampoline and throw into the porch… but still: good thoughts is what makes life […]

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 […]

Back in Latvia

We are back in Latvia. But no at home. We will travel around here for a few weeks or so. The weather in these two days isn’t “good”. It’s rainy, windy and cold. We aren’t used to such weather after having +30 🙂 in Germany. Our last travel day was looooong. We drive 949km per day through half of the […]

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 […]

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 […]

First two suitcases packed!

Yesterday evening was sunny and so does this morning. Girls wanted to pack her summer clothes for our caravan trip. And I realize that it would be easier for me if something will be washed, ironed and packed already! Less cloth for girls to wear now (they like to change cloth 5 times per day and somehow they gets dirty!). […]
