Laissez les bons temps rouler!!

So yes, i’m going to try this again… this time with an app, so I can write whenever inspiration strikes šŸ˜ In my last post I mentioned that the plans for our house were almost done. They were, but life didn’t agree with our plans and here we are pretty much at the same stage […]

Important stuff!!

The drawings for our future home are almost done!!! We’ve had a meeting with our architect earlier this week and have decided on those details that have to be in the drawing when we submit it to the local council for approval. And then the real work starts: finalising the kitchen design, choosing the style […]

Joy joy joy!

I want to move now!! Weā€™ve got a tent somewhere and weā€™ll just CAMP on OUR property!!! A couple of days ago we went there for a meeting about the playground thatā€™ll be built around the corner. The meeting was very informative, but the best part was that afterwards everyone stayed for another hour or […]


Just the other day I told EmanuĆ«l how lucky I feel to have a hubby who always keeps making sure thereā€™s adventure in our life. Sharing those adventures with friends, family andā€¦well the world, was the reason we started with in the first place. So, you may wonder, does that mean there were no […]

New job, new wedding rings, Israel and more

I figured itā€™s about time I write a new postā€¦to have our New Yearā€™s wishes still at the top in Aprilā€¦mea culpa mea culpa! So, whatā€™s happened in the last monthsā€¦ In one word: LOTS! January was quiet, but then it startedā€¦ As per February 1st I started a new job. Finally! Iā€™d been looking […]

Happy New Year!!!

I did it, I did it!!

I finally got it right! I’ve been trying to make my own ‘ontbijtkoek’ for a while now. Ontbijtkoek is a dutch kind of spice cake and it’s hard to get a good one outside of the Netherlands. So I figured I’d make it myself. First time I made it, it was very very delicious. However, […]

I wanted Israelā€¦I got Israelā€¦

Because weā€™d be traveling with 5 people plus luggage weā€™d arranged a big rental car. We really only needed it to get from the airport to the hotel and from Tel Aviv to Eilat. We did use it on Sunday, to go to Caesarea, but on Monday it stood unused in a parking garage in […]

Home away from home…

It is strange… I love living in Germany, and I feel very much at home in Erlangen and Nuremberg. And while there I never really thought I missed Tel Aviv that much. Of course we think about it, about the weather, the food…but we’ve had nice weather in Germany, and I actually love it that […]

Reporting from Tel Aviv!

It seems our stories about Japan are doomed to be shoved in between posts about other things… Right now we’re back in Tel Aviv and all I want, is to write about being here. But at least I managed to get the pictures we took in Japan ready and on the website. I’m pretty certain […]
