In between winter and spring

We're longing for warmer days, for feeling the sunlight and eating ice cream. But at the same time, this is such an incredible time for long hikes and exploring. The cold days between winter and the start of a real spring, we love them! 
The snow on...

Why my dogs wear life jackets.

We've been using life jackets for our dogs for years, but since I'm getting more and more questions, this blog post is fully dedicated to the summer flotation gear that my dogs are using. We, two-legged creatures, are also using life vests, but since we can't...

We did it! 100 geocaches found!

When I first shared our goal of 50 geocaches a year, and our followers challenged us to do 100, I thought it would be a hard challenge. At the time we were still knee-deep in the snow, often taking slippery country roads and crawling through...

Finally the swimming season has started!

Look at those happy faces! Only a few weeks ago, in early May, the world around us was still blah. Everything was still dead. Brown. Beige. Cold. But as always, when you start to get restless about the never-ending cold, everything suddenly explodes into bright greens. Since...

What’s in my dog’s travel pouch?

We can't wait to hit the road, explore new places, and find some peculiar treasures. As I'm packing, I thought it would be fun to share the dog gear we take when we travel. Just as what we pack for ourselves depends on the season and...

2023 goal: finding 100 geocaches

It was a random day in the middle of the week, only a few weeks ago, when I checked the Geocaching website and discovered that there were a lot more caches than I initially thought- since we're living outside of a very quiet village. It...

Geocaching with the dogs in Dalarna

It's no secret that we love adventure stories with exciting treasure hunts, scruffy smugglers, hidden caves, and shipwrecks. Those ingredients aren't part of our daily life, but we found a few modern (and risk-free) alternatives to go hunting for treasures- together with the dogs. Because, what...

Our favorite dog harnesses (and what we use them for)

It wasn't that long ago that I wasn't a fan of harnesses. At the time, the city was our daily environment and we were constantly searching for space to let the dogs run free, play, and run. Harnesses, I thought, only make dogs pull more,...

Nature reserve Lovenhoek, Belgium

Belgium, we still love you! And perhaps even more after some wonderful walks we did recently. When we still lived in Belgium, we barely ever visited nature reserves, mainly because we constantly looked for places where our dogs could run off-leash. These days we have a different...

Exploring the Swedish West Coast: Bohuslän

Have you watched "The Fjällbacka murders"? It's in the area where this series takes place, that we rented a house. No worries, unlike the series, the area is rather quiet and peaceful (although many Swedes seem to cherish certain dark parts of history- given recent elections). A...
