Crossing Denmark

Jul 072015

Itzhoe, 36° celcius, stuffy air. A few hours ago a more comfortable breeze got around us in Denmark. Denmark – we've been there for about one month and the country left a great sensation.

Even if it wasn't that simple to pass the border. Never before we had to put out our thumbs that long. But finally Volker and his truck take us straight to the center of Aarhus (a place to return). We notice a strange undergrounding kindness and helpfulness („strange“ because being German always means to be a bit suspicious of such openness).

Multicultural in Dutch

Jul 272015

Some day in Haarlem we recognize that we like to work. Well, really do work, with our hands and feet, in the sweat of our brows. For two weeks we explored charming dutch cities and met their inhabitants, but now it's time for something else.

So we start to investigate on different internet pages if somebody would offer us accomodation and food for helping them with their project. Fleur, a yogateacher, does so. Her house is next to the dutch town Eindhoven and she transmutes the whole property into a yogastudio. Because of many helpers from every part of the world there were already grown walls, gardens, meadows, paths and murals - despite there is still a lot to do till the opening. We finish (establish) a meditation platform, straighten a pond, carry bricks, fix bikes, cook, pile wood and transplant vegetables. The atmosphere is great, even so it's incedibly satisfying to see the results.
