One Man's Paradise


“For those who know the value of and exquisite taste of solitary freedom, the act of leaving is the bravest and most beautiful of all.”

Isabelle Eberhardt

Another season comes to an end. Breaking up the tents, moving on…

It is always hard to leave friends and the comfort of a warm cabin behind. To trade in a convenient routine for the dusty road into the unknown.

I’ll be joining two friends for a long bicycle trip in the Southern hemisphere on roads less traveled, if that is still possible.

I will be gone for as long as I can stay with a tourist visa, 3 months that is. I hope to unwind and unplug and focus on what matters: the moment I am living in.

Until then my friends…

Into the Wild

Good bye my friends

You, leaving?

You, leaving?

It is time to say good bye to my friends the foxes. Not only because I am leaving, but also because the dogs of Puntilla Lake return. Hank and Brix are already here watching out for us. Tomorrow Remington and Neko will return and outnumber the foxes.

The foxes were splashes of color and entertainment during the winter. We watched them playfully interact with each other, barking across the lake, gliding across the powder with ease. Some were shy, all of them were curious, and they steal worse than ravens. It’s a hard life out there. Stay warm.


Bye, bye. Miss you,too.
