Rv Trip through Europe Day 2: Czech republic

When RV-ing in Summer time we had heatwaves and no aircon to worry about, RV-ing in Winter was a whole different level of scary.  Driving on extremely small roads that are somehow suppose to be for oncoming traffic as well and you might as well be driving a mini bus is scary.  Having to go off the road to let other cars pass you while you wonder will we ever be able to get out of this snow ditch?   Continue reading

RV trip through Europe Day 1

We did it again! We Rv’d through Europe for the second time.  This time around we had our sights set on Italy, but we got into the North of Italy and had a major panic attack and decided to rather head to Switzerland.  The joy of taking a trip with an van is that you can change your plans at any second.  Travelling in Europe with the coronavirus right now felt a little bit crazy, every single place we went to had confirmed cases, attractions seemed a little bit emptier than usual and every time I saw a mask the reality of the situation just kicked in.  It was really scary, but we tried our best to stay as healthy as we could and to practice good hand washing hygiene.   Continue reading

a trip to Torun part 2

Torun had so much to offer that I didn’t think it was fair to bombard one post with so many photos.  Pierniki is a traditional Polish gingerbread that has been produced in Torun since the middle ages and you can just see and taste that they have mastered the art of making the perfect gingerbread, the beauty, detail and care taken to make these tasty little art pieces is just amazing.

A trip to Torun part 1

Torun is such a little hidden gem in Poland, a quick day trip from Gdansk and you’re in a beautiful medieval town filled with history and amazing treats, but a highlight about going in December is you get to see day time Torun and nighttime Torun even with children, because night time starts at 15:30, the perfect little family activity while you feel like adults for going out at night.

A kid at a candy store

When we set off on my Birthday adventure to Torun, I never in my wildest dreams thought we would get stuck at a candy store for like 30 minutes.  We knew there would be Pierniki, a  delicious gingerbread, but we didn’t know there was going to be every little kids dream hand made candy in beautiful shapes, riding on a Christmas train.

Happy Birthday to me

Another year around the sun and loving it, not going to lie this has been a really, really hard year.   Poland has been surprisingly hard to assimilate to, but I’m really happy to be growing more as a person and have goals that I know I want to achieve and I’m extremely happy to be getting older and hopefully a little wiser with the years.
