The last two weeks of our travel were like on a roller coaster. We felt like flying, everything was possible, we were living a dream. We were freezing, desperate, disappointed and fed up.
Everything began with our dance with a hurricane. Still in Germany at Joshua’s father we saw the first signs of the storm coming. A few days later at the coast of the Netherlands we were in the middle of it. A little bit we felt like in a time machine. Just two weeks before we were swimming in the 1000 lakes of Bohemia and walked around in T-shirt and suddenly we were sitting in the car, warming ourselves with hot sage tea, took out our winter boots while outside it was rainy and windy.
One morning, while we were waiting for the little rain brakes to brush teeth in winter jackets the ice rain came. For us the final sign that we had to go. We said goodbye to the North coast, canceled the idea of discovering the Bretagne and headed south west.
The best decision we made for days. Already in the night when we stopped at a beautiful river close to Nantes, we could feel the difference. Now it was warm and cozy. Nearly forgotten summer feelings came back. And the next day: sun! After more then 10 days we could see finally blue sky again. We made Yoga, enjoyed the weather and continued our way.
The direction was clear. The ocean! So long we were waiting and in the Netherlands we could only be with rain boots on the beach. Now we were dancing barfoot with the wind ….
By playing in the sand, also our dogs remembered why they actually love traveling so much. The only thing that makes them sad, that on a lot of beaches they are forbidden. How beautiful the world could be if instead of closing out we would love and understand, and would get rid of specifism.
Look, how much they love to watch the sunset…
…running on the beach…
… and playing.
By writing this article we are sitting in our camper on the island of Orélon. The starsky is fantastic, we can see the milky way and hear the waves of the ocean next to us.
We realized one more time, how important your surrounding is. Of course, you should find the paradise in yourself. But even when you are happy with yourself, you can be more happy on a place that you like. For us this place right now is on the sunny beaches next to the ocean. Here we wake up every morning with a smile, enjoy every moment of the day and go to bed feeling exited for tomorrow.
