I broke my personal record: not even a single word here since April 2016. Almost a year of silence, 12 drafts laying on the background...Pictures, gifs...but no words. 2016 was a massive roller coaster for me, ups and downs were dramatic, emotional and weird. The biggest struggle, that we possible can ever have, is struggle with ourselves. I went through that and feel, probably, the biggest relief since a while. I woke up and finally started to do. Back to writing, back to baking, back to do all the things, that make me happy and calm. And I thank all of you, who were coming here for a short or a longer visit, because statistics was really encouraging and even made me feel guilty for my silence:)
My first entry this year is about my small trip to Groningen, Netherlands, about how and why I fell in love with it.
We, my best friend and I, have planned a trip to Netherlands already for quite a while. None of us have never been there, so while having a bit adventurous mood, we decided to finally do that during my winter holidays in Bremen, Germany. It's super easy to get from Bremen to Groningen: it takes 3 hours bus ride, tickets are cheap (30 Euros two ways if you book them before on FlixBus). Easy and decent.
Sunday was a perfect day for a travel. Everything is much more relaxed and peaceful on a weekend. And when you're on vacations and don't need to go to work on Monday morning - that's one of the greatest feelings in world:)
Groningen at 9 am was completely empty. Empty streets, closed shops and restaurants, no people on bicycles...Only cats and silence. Isn't that magical?!
In my hometown I got used, that streets are more or less crowdy 24/7. So appreciated that rare hours of complete privacy in the middle of Groningen.
