Nature’s way to cheer me up

DSC07227Nature always finds a way to make me feel better. We live closely to the Veluwe, a beautiful piece of nature that can be found in the Netherlands. There’s a lush forest, some lakes and according to wikipedia, europe’s largest sand drifts. It offers some peace and quiet. The first time we went there, I was feeling down. I didn’t want to do anything. Boyfriend suggested we go to the Veluwe and bring our instruments. We had a lovely time, me playing the ukulele and him playing his ocarina. Such an amazing place to relax and not think about anything. Now, the Veluwe feels like my go to place whenever things get rough.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a little accident. I fell of my bicycle and I sprained my wrist. I felt miserable for the following days. I couldn’t do anything else besides lying on the coach all day and watch Netflix. Anway, when I was feeling a little bit better, we decided to visit the Veluwe again. It was the perfect time for a visit, because the heath was in full bloom. Lush fields of purple were to be seen everywhere and it was really pretty! The perfect way to cheer me up.

First time in London

IMG_4805I was letting my mind wander to all the glorious places I still want to visit and then I saw some pictures of London. It got me thinking; what would be a better place to spend Christmas? Now, I have some family obligations so actually celebrating the holidays abroad would be a no-go, but I’d love to spend a few days in december there, to get in the holiday spirit! All I have got to do now is convince the Boyfriend to go!

I’ve been to London once before, it was actually the first trip Boyfriend and I took together. We only spent one night there in a crappy hostel, but we did have a lovely time in the city where we saw all the highlights, went to a play and stood in line for over an hour to take a picture with a wall…

They had this deal where you could spend a bit more on your diner, in exchange for vouchers you could use to visit a theme park. The park we choose was one I always wanted to go to, but never actually visited: Movie Park Germany!
