Yup, Spring is here!
Right now the sun is shining,
flowers are blooming,skies are blue and everybody is happy…It was not like that the whole time.
Well, obviously the sun never stopped shining.
But this spring has still thrown some unpredictable weather at us.
We had our fair share of rain and a good few nights the temperature dropped to freezing.
Not an issue at all as long as you stay curled up in bed or cozy on the couch.
But that’s not our style. Well, not all the time at least 😉And we were not alone.
Shawn welcomed me to her home in Missoula, Montana about 1,5 years ago.
And now I had the honour to show her around my home turf for a few days 🙂
Springtime also means baby-boom on the nearby farms,
first off were the goats.
Totally adorable.We are lucky to have friends on farms nearby, so we were able to go back every time new life came around.Tara’s favourites were the lambs.And the rabbit, although not a baby, was pretty cool too.It was easter, after all. Am I showing you too many baby-pictures yet?
I’m afraid it’s not going to stop any time soon…Here we are at our lovely beach in Katwijk aan Zee.
We did not cycle there this time, but together with our friend Ronald we drove out there to enjoy the sand, the sun, the sea! Another first for Tara.Very windy! And not all too warm yet. You might’ve guessed by the wooly hats and down jacket. Still a good spot to visit and, as we say in Dutch “even lekker uitwaaien” or “blowing out nicely”
… ok, I guess it doesn’t translate very well. Another highlight in the past few weeks was a real bicycle tour.
And not alone! Andrew & Friedel, you surely know from TravellingTwo, invited us to join them on a camping trip.
There’s a lot I can learn from them! As now they are four Travelling.We are one cool looking parade of bicycles.(If I may say so myself)
Even more so when Stijn joined the circus. He was an a trial-run for his upcoming trip in Greece.You wouldn’t think, but in this set-up he managed to squeeze two extra blankets to ensure Tara & I didn’t freeze!The temperature was around 0 degrees at night.
Which shouldn’t have surprised me as “April doet wat hij wil” (April does what he wants..)
A saying over here.Friedel & Andrew had chosen a real nice place to camp. Where we could make a big fire.We had a great weekend exploring the area.
Hopefully we’ll be able to repeat this again soon.On our way home it was all blue skies and tailwinds.A good taste for what’s to come!
