What an utter, absolute shambles they´ve made of opening borders in Europe. I suppose we´re in a “test case” scenario here, but the odds are stacked high since June 21st, and by “high” the biggest pickle is air travel. There´s still hot spot zones within most countries to avoid, some bigger than others.As I write…… Continue reading Opening up in the Schengen Zone
Life is full of adventures, some bigger than others, the best ones are those that in reality sweep you off your feet. It´s taken us a few months of pondering about the idea of taking yet another leap.

Already? The month of hearts, flowers, love, and romance is upon us. It also represents the start of the big warm up, courtesy of radiance and glory from the yellow thing sat amidst blue sky.
