Oregon‘s misty soul. [US Roadtrip 2022.]

I am running down to the shore, half stumbling to the sand that gives way underneath my feet. „I missed you, I missed you so much,“ I am shouting, half in honesty, half in fun. The Pacific. The largest and deepest of our oceans. My ocean. I always joke that people have a favorite ocean. … Continue reading Oregon‘s misty soul. [US Roadtrip 2022.]

Californian Breakfast Diner [US Roadtrip 2022]

One sentence we heard repeatedly during our trip was „You are real people.“ At first, I was confused. What does that mean? And what does it mean not to be? When we listened to the meaning behind it, we heard other things coming to the surface. Real people as in "you are workers and not … Continue reading Californian Breakfast Diner [US Roadtrip 2022]

Zion. [US Roadtrip 2022]

“Don’t just hit the big National Parks, also go to the smaller State Parks,” I hear Byron’s voice echoing in my head when we made Zion our stop. I find it fascinating how quickly special places become big tourist magnets. Not just with National Parks.  And yet, although paved roads, oversized RVs, shuttle buses, and … Continue reading Zion.

Together with the others, I dove deeper into Holistic Management and learned more than I could have wished for - from the place, the animals, and the people. Byron facilitated our questions and … Continue reading West Bijou Reflections [US Roadtrip 2022]

High Desert. [US Roadtrip 2022]

I walk over to the boulder where the little pointy guy is growing, right at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. I’ve never seen a cactus growing on a rock in the forest, right next to evergreens.  „We’re in the High Desert,“ Jason tells me.  During our hike I stop again and again to investigate … Continue reading High Desert.

Locks. [Our Nomadic Life 2022 – Fern Gully, Göteborg (Sweden)]

Locks. So many locks. The contrast could not have been bigger. After 10 days in a Swedish summer house by the sea with no locks on our door, we are now in an apartment block in the north of Göteborg. With many locks. We swapped a small village vibe where everyone greeted each other with … Continue reading Locks. [Our Nomadic Life 2022 – Fern Gully, Göteborg (Sweden)]
