Snowbird spotting

February 9, 2017

I was always intrigued by the North American snowbirds portrayed in the Louis Theroux documentary, but I didn’t know that Europe has such a big population of travelling pensioners.

Sanity days for him and for her

While the main aim of this trip is to visit and work on ecological communities (at least for me), we also have the chance to experience and learn about the life in a tiny house on wheels. Slowly, through experience and advice from fellow travellers, we’re finding our way.

A first look at ecological communities

While visiting two ecological communities, new questions emerged: why is the one community more successful than the other, and in extension of that, what defines success? Another interesting issue to look at in the coming months.

New travel experiences

Travelling with Sunny is a whole new experience: in less than 10 minutes you can transform her into the room you want and she can be parked in an area that looks like the garden of your choice. What more do you need?

Dream and drive with Sunny

Good planning and weighing the pros and cons of different options can help us make the right decision, as long as it doesn’t get in the way of actually taking action.

Breaking the silence and new plans

Summer has passed, autumn is setting in. For us time to prepare for a new adventure.

The Scots and their summer – take 2

While many might complain about rain every day, the Scots can appreciate those rare moments when the sun does appear.

Weddings, funerals, anniversaries and Facebook

Social media is great for staying in touch with people we don’t see so often, but it’ll never replace meeting up in real life.

The Scots and their summer

The Scots have a saying, ‘Sun’s out, tops off’. Scotland the brave: they don’t let the weather spoil their fun.

Spring: party time in the Netherlands

It’s great to live in a country with great weather all year round, but it’s very special to be able to celebrate brighter days.
