Camping in wintertime

2020-02-02

 

We love to camp, summer or winter, it doesn’t matter. A lot of people ask me, what’s the fun of camping in winter? Wel, let me tell you.

Our life is hectic. We both work in stressful jobs. I as manager of 2 specialism in a hospital and my husband as an accountmanager with a big company. We work a lot of hours, but besides that we also have to maintain the house. And as you know as a working woman, the work is never done. There is always a little voice in my head who says that I have to iron of cook or clean or……… You probably recognize this. But when we are out camping, life becomes simple.

Simple is the right word for it. The place where you live is small and the only thing you have to think about is: ” what shall we eat”  and “what are we are going to do today”. Our days are filled there with reading, making long walks, listening to music and do nothing. It’s healing. Your mind comes to rest at such a moment. No cleaning, social events, or anything else. Only time for yourself.

We are lucky that we can do this. I hope there a many more trips in the coming years. Short trips to Germany or in our own country or long trips to Italy, Spain, France, Austria or wherever we want to go.
