In some measurements we are a very average family – a husband, a wife and two kids; a little boy and a little girl. We live currently in Switzerland in a very small village, that is located to a real Middle Earth (If you’re familiar with the Lord of the Rings by Tolkien, you definitely know what middle earth is, right?) Oh, and we are a bilingual Family – that sometimes equals very funny situations… Anyway, this blog is mostly about me (the wifey) and my favorite pastimes, which include traveling, outdoors, nature and reading… but  naturally my family are also involved in these adventures I write about. They don’t really have a lot of choice, do they… 🙂

As mentioned above, one of my favorite pastime is traveling. Basically this means that whenever we have time, we are on the move. Often our adventures are colored by my husband’s more or less annoying geocatching-hobby – but to be fair I have to say we have found many cool places because of that – places that would otherwise have remained unfound. Our trips are also colored by kids and their more or less complicated needs – but I have to give it to them, they are excellent little travelers. I think after two times of driving to Finland and back with the car (without complaining, I must say), my daughter definitely deserves an Iron-Butt trophy. But that is another story…. Anyway, I invite you to read my travel diaries from different destinations. In the end of every travel diary, you’ll find some information you can use in case you want to visit these destinations! Have fun with the stories and planning your own trips!

My another favorite pastime is reading. Really, I am a serious bookaholic, always in the middle of at least two books at the same time. Because of this passion of mine, there is a section called Book Corner on this blog where you can check my latest readings and my reviews about them. Maybe that helps you to decide what to read next! You know, when life happens, traveling is not always possible. But when bound at home, you can grab a good book and let your mind do the traveling!

To conclude, let’s just say that this blog doesn’t exactly fit into any given category. But it fits to my (and our) life. I write about things we saw and experienced while on the road or during everyday life, especially those that in some way moved my heart let it be good or bad. But there is yet another aspect to this story: as a God-loving woman, I believe that life itself is a journey. So it just might happen that here and there on or in between the lines you will find little hints and glimpses of the heavenly side of the road. I hope you enjoy, welcome aboard with me and my family! 🙂
