A Simplifier on the Road: Noticing Nature



We didn't plan it but our Trans-European Expedition started in the heat of autumn, our favorite season. From a mild young autumn in Bulgaria we landed to a Scandinavian autumn at its best - bright blue sky, fresh air and trees with burning colors.

I must remind you that this expedition is not about sightseeing or noticing nature. On the contrary, we have a lot to settle, stuff to organize and get rid of because well, you know that we like to keep our life uncluttered. Plus, we cannot move everything we own to each country we decide to spend a simple living year in, right? 

But we're dreamers, the Doctor and I, and true to ourselves we always sneak some delightful moments into the whole organizing, selecting, and going-crazy-with-documents procedure. 

In other words, I feel the urge to tell you: Don't forget that however busy you think you are, you always have time to notice nature and to recharge. You can choose to be positive and in control of your inner peace. Just go outside and surrender to the magic of Nature.

The walks we take in-between our tasks are so uplifting and inspiring and help us glide through the supposedly stressful days excited and full with energy. 

Do you want to see the colors of autumn in Norway through our delighted eyes (that are going to burst with color any time soon)? I promise, you will be stunned, just as we are every time we step outside. The trees are screaming with color and yet they remain gracefully mysterious, wearing their autumn dresses with dignity and poise.

I wish I can have a whole year of quiet autumn.
