Autumn and a wild sheep chase in the Veluwe

Last week we went to the Veluwe because the walls were closing in. It was a lovely autumn day and it was really nice to get out into the fresh air again. Moments like these will be scarce and further apart, we went into a partial lockdown again yesterday.

The Netherlands is getting more and more covid cases and our numbers are now high above those of Germany and France, that while it’s such a tiny country. It really is too bad. I’m glad we’re in partial lockdown again, to try and keep this virus under control, though it does mean it will get nearly impossible to visit cities and do daytrips, and thus, having less blogs to write for you. I will do my best to keep up posting, maybe once a week rather than two. I’ll keep you posted while I stay inside, and I hope all of you will be safe as well ♥

I felt locked-up, going crazy with need for adventure, for doing something else than spending time at home. I just really need to go. The next day, Boyfriend had searched for a few stops nearby, places where we wouldn’t run into a lot of people, but where I could get some fresh air and a change of scenery, even only for a couple of hours, without the risk of getting sick or contaminating others.

Nature’s way to cheer me up

Nature 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.
