Letting Go of Home

Brave decision, between beautiful indoors and outdoors, expertly described. Good luck…

full-time rv living, rv travel, rving

For years I dreamed of travelling this fabulous continent with only a camper van and my best friend, (and hubby in case you are new to the blog) Q.  I was heavy into my career, building, growing, climbing that corporate ladder but as I sat in my office staring out the windows I would dream of being somewhere else.  I felt stifled, uninspired in my life.  I was successful but I felt empty inside like something was missing.

Snippets of the life I truly wanted were granted to me via holidays and vacations but once I returned to my life of commute, home, commute, I would quickly push those memories away so I wouldn’t be reminded I wasn’t where I was supposed to be.  With obligations growing I worked on, adding responsibilities to my job and knick knacks to my house.  Over time I would forget the feelings the vacations…

Forest Green Promotion for Vegetarian Week, Nadal and Hamilton Win Again

Forest Green Rovers won promotion to the Football League on the weekend, in time for national vegetarian week, becoming both the club from the smallest population catchment area in the Football League, and the greenest. They are owned by Ecotricity’s Dale Vince, and have won promotion on a vegan diet. They plan a new eco stadium now.

Parody Satirical Comedy with Real Sporting News

Moreover, they play in great greenYgrey, starting a parody satirical comedy round-up with real news:

There was a lot of greenYgreying going on when they won promotion:

Sporting Nostalgia: Rafa Nadal and Lewis Hamilton

While Forest Green Rovers are hopefully pioneering a green future for football, and appeared on the greenYgrey for the first time today, a couple of greats from greenYgrey sport were on form at the weekend too.

Rafa Nadal, the werewolf representative in the eternal battle with vampires, represented by Roger Federer, won the Madrid Open with some great gYgPOPing:

Also in Spain, Lewis Hamilton won the Barcelona Grand Prix, in the city of Marc Latham’s fourth marathon in 2013. Hamilton updated the old Mercedes greenYgrey look with a yellow helmet, and combined some great greenYgreying with his crucial passing manoeuvre against arch rival Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari:

Norway’s Birthday

Reflections Coincidence 4: As well as this weekend being the first anniversary of my ambition ending, next month is the tenth anniversary of my first international one, the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. While all my marathons have had nice nature, running alongside Arctic fjords was sensationally surreal, and this morning I saw this blog post celebrating Norway’s birthday this week. Moreover, last night I watched Dead Snow 2, with some great Norwegian/Scandinavian dark humour!

The World according to Dina

17. Mai – Norwegischer Nationalfeiertag

On May 17th 1814 the first Norwegian constitution was passed.
Am 17. Mai 1814 wurde die erste Verfassung Norwegens verabschiedet.


Norway is no country of military parades – Great, isn’t it?! The National Holiday is coined by childlike fun, games, and a feeling of togetherness.

Norwegen ist kein Land der Militärparaden. Der Nationalfeiertag ist der kindlichen Freude, dem Spiel und dem Gemeinschaftsgefühl gewidmet.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Siri & Selma, Dina & Klausbernd
