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 […]

DIY: Easy Potato Stamps

This is something I thought of when Linna wanted to help me in the kitchen. I was in the hurry so I needed her to be off the “helping”. I asked Linna to wash potatoes while I was looking around (still mess in my kitchen – haven’t finished it!) for cookie cutters. I was lucky! I found them just in […]

Kitty Cat / Sunset

A small trip that made us smile. Made us happier, healthier and calmer. All cats need love – even old ones! A Lovely sunset at the end and all without crying went to bad. Summer, I love you! Ilze

Sea: Gulf of Riga

We call it sea. But it’s a gulf.Doesn’t matter. Nelle calls it a big lake. Anyway… Girls were at sea again. It’s not that warm yet but Janis and girls love the sea and I think free time might be handy. So, I let them go and have fun in the sand…. not water! It’s way too cold for girls, […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
