Hello spring

Winter is almost over. Seasons are changing. Only a few days till the start of spring. It’s my favorite season of the year. After the winter cold everything starts to grow again. Even when I appreciate winter as well, as every season has its own charm, I am always happy when spring starts. The earlier sunrise, the longer days, the warmth of the sun and the start of the growth of leaves and blossoms. It’s time to go out and enjoy this time of the year. 

Despite the COVID-19 situation, there are still many cases, we seem to be back to ‘normal’ life again. As there are almost no rules anymore and everything is open again in the Netherlands. Make some time to appreciate and to be grateful for this change. I would like to share some things you can do this spring:

  • As spring is also the start of a new season, take some time to reflect on yourself. Is there something you would like to do these coming months? Make a plan and start. 
  • Visit a children’s farm to see the newborn animals. 
  • Take your bike out and make a bike tour. Bring some vegan snacks, some drinks and a picnic blanket and find a good spot for a small picnic on the way. 
  • Visit the blossom park in ‘Amsterdamse bos’ in Amsterdam. It is a popular destination to watch cherry blossoms, so it can be very crowded. Check this website for more information before you plan to visit the park. 
  • You can also find some cherry trees in the garden of ‘Museum Volkenkunde’ in Leiden. The trees are a gift from Japan. Check this website for more activities.
  • Organize a vegan high tea at home and invite some friends. 
  • Start to clean your house for spring cleaning! 
  • Go out with your camera and take photos of flowers, blossoms or butterflies. You can visit a local park or a natural area. 
  • Visiting events is possible again. If you want to experience something special, visit the magical kingdom of Elfia. It will take place at De Haar Castle on 23 and 24 April 2022. It is the largest outdoor costume event in Europe. There are lectures, activities, shows, workshops and of course there is also music. This festival can’t be described in words, you just have to experience it.

What are you planning to do this spring? Let me know.
