Our travel experiences

I’ve heard about Ecolonie several times from different people. It’s a Dutch ecovillage in France which is not only about ecology but also spirituality. One day I decided to send them an email and ask if we could come to live with them for a few weeks. They said yes! When we arrived it was already getting dark and we were just in time to join the group for dinner. The dining hall is a very cozy warm place with a wood stove keeping us warm during cold autumn days. It was crowded with people and it was clear that they had been working all day outside on the land.

Summer in Slovenia

29/09/2019

Although it’s already end of September it still feels like summer here in Slovenia. This trip was a surprise for me as Boris planned it by himself and all I had to do was to pack my bag and follow him. I felt super happy and I totally trusted him that it would be a very pleasant surprise.

14 Days in Silence

29/09/2019

It took me just a second to decide to go on this retreat, because I knew it was the right thing to do. I felt excited and at the same time I realized it was not going to be easy. Every day had exactly the same schedule, starting at 5 am in the morning until 10 pm at night. The whole retreat was in silence: no talking, no phones, no books, no entertainment.

Sometimes we travel together and sometimes we travel alone. This time I went to Sweden while Boris stayed in the Netherlands. It all started with the idea of doing some volunteer work abroad and finally I gave it a try. When I saw this place I just knew it was perfect for me and luckily my application was accepted. Mundekulla is a magical place in the South of Sweden, a retreat and festival centre surrounded by forest and lakes.

It’s about two month ago that we left Delft and started traveling. Somehow time feels different now without the daily routines and weekly schedules, like when you are on a holiday and you don’t know whether it’s Friday or Monday. While free time used to be scarce and travels used to be short, now time is abundant and trips can last as long as we like. Of course there are moments when we miss our friends and family, moments when we miss you, the yoga classes and our great time in Delft. We feel so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives.

I have been at the Buddhist monastery many times and now as I walked up to the entrance gate it felt like “I have arrived, I am home.” And although everything felt familiar, there is always something new and unexpected. This time there was a big group of Chinese people from Hong Kong staying at the monastery and I was pleasantly surprised to meet a good friend whom I hadn’t seen for a long time. She was there for the same retreat and it was great to spend some time with her.
