I thought long what our stay in the second Airbnb “Batman” should be about. Today on a slow Sunday, watching people by the river and after an energizing day on a farm, I read Charles Eisenstein's Story of Interbeing. I guess that’s what Batman was all about. Feeling the connection between us and the place. … Continue reading Interbeing. [Our nomadic life – Batman, 07.03.-07.04.2022.]
We decided to give names to the different Airbnbs and places we would stay at. To be able to visualize them better. In alphabetic order and connected to a movie. So, our first Airbnb ‘A’ became Amelie pretty quickly. We’ve moved out. There’s no apartment to go back to. This is not a holiday where … Continue reading Kingfisher.

We are wrapped in warm, floaty, puffed suits on the little boat, enjoying a bumpy-in-a-good-way ride and a fun conversation with the newly weds … Continue reading I don’t want to know.

"We are now in the Arctic circle," I write my mum. She sends me an emoji filled text message back. "💖 Congratulations 🌟🎉🎊🎈🔔🎶🐧 Probably you will stay the only ones in the family 😄." We keep heading north, two days of just driving with no fjords but gas station burgers. We stop for the Marmorslottet … Continue reading North. [Roadtrip around Norway #6]
I yawn, stretch my arms over my head and my back makes a little 'everything gets back into place' sound. I turn around to get my beanie out of the car. It is 7 am and maybe 5 degrees Celsius. It is my time to make coffee in the back of the van. Last year … Continue reading Old water. [Roadtrip around Norway #2]
I am staring at my opponent, focusing on every tiny move he makes and trying not to move myself. He looks straight at me with his perfectly round eyes and the bright orange iris. ‘Don’t blink or you will miss it’, I tell myself. I forget about the sun that was shining a bit too … Continue reading Do they blink? [Roadtrip around Norway #1]
