roaring skies

The summer creates room for autumn to come. Rain, thunder and fat white clouds rise like mountains from our horizon.

making plans

Oh, the rain. We turned on the lights and got settled at the kitchen table. We are making plans for New Zealand. So much to see, so many miles to go, so many choices to make, let's go!

Ni hao! This is Bao in one of Rotterdam nicest streets. We were planning to eat here for such a long time, tonight's the night. This restaurant is such a nice place with real Chinese food, you can even eat jellyfish.. (of course we didn't!). We'll come back again :)

on our way

We woke up, early in the morning, breakfast at the table, we are in the garden, we were sleeping in the yurt, we took the bicycles, we rode along the Maas, through the dunes, we are here in the summer.

sunny friday

On the news they say that this weekend will be the hottest weekend of the year! Lovely :) Rinske had sent me a lovely letter that I read while sitting in my hammock beneath the trees. This afternoon I rode on my bike to Fabricati in the city. I found this metal 'keep it real' box, I absolutely love it! A perfect little box to collect some souvenirs in.

A barbecue in the garden for the two of us on this beautiful evening :) I made a spinach-tofu tart with sunflower seeds, courgette skewers and a package of salmon, dill and lime!

messages and a smoothy

Monday! Another week has begun. Normally the postman strikes mondays but today I found a message from Germany, Finland and a postcard from America. Sent by seven year old Nicholas, how sweet! Last sunday my mother gave me a small pouch of blackberries. I turned it into a smoothy, lovely!

dunes and pizza

Another beautiful day. We went for a walk in the dunes of Oostvoorne, it was so incredibly quiet! Afterwards we ate a pizza with Lee and San in Brielle :) Little Teun loved the tuna

taking a walk

This afternoon we went for a walk at the Gooise Heide. Thanks Rinske for the book of walks :) The colours were amazing and the nature was so beautiful! Like we were on vacation!! Wow.

bbq friday

With a good and summery weekend ahead of us we'd started with a bbq in the park with our friends! What a wonderful evening, we'd stayed until the sun went down, the stars were visible and the mosquitos came to bite us.
