Lang Weekend In De Bergen {Dutch}.

Grenzen aangeven, behoeften benoemen en ongenoegens uiten, je mag dan wel een communicatief vaardig persoon zijn, makkelijk is anders. Of het nu om een vriendschap, werk- of liefdesrelatie gaat, om het gezond en in balans te houden, moeten er wel eens dingen gezegd worden, die soms moeilijk zijn.

A Taste of French Life, Green Gorillas in Autumn, and my Return Home.

A Taste of French Life, Green Gorillas in Autumn, and my Return Home.

Sometimes coming home is not as good as you hoped it would be. Coming back to the island however, it surely was. When I arrived last Wednesday by ferry early in the morning in Palma and my feet stepped on Mediterranean soil again, I felt butterflies in my stomach. Somehow I feel I belong to [...]

In this Spanish village where I live, it wasn’t toilet paper that people were stacking away during lockdown, as people did in the Netherlands, my native country. No, it was flour. Flour to bake bread, cakes and pizza. As we all had to stay in our houses and my only weekly visit was to the [...]

Eat Together without Phones on the Table and Other Lessons I Learnt from Starting an Eco Community.

‘Community living’: to live with like-minded people, share food, ideas about life and necessities, support each other, work on projects together, have somebody around to have a chat or a drink with and respect everyone’s space.
