    I know the are many people from the USA living in the area whre you lived, due to the presence of a NATO base.
    Is that why you lived there?

Our Sweden trip, boondocking

by Dutchie on 08-22-2019 at 05:34 AM
Maybe you like to know, what our life looks like, living fulltime in a RV.
I thought I would give you a little insight.
We love to stay at lonely places, and enjoy the nature surrounding us.
All alone (which is not the same as lonely), with the peace and the quite.
At this moment we found a place to set up camp, deep in the woodiewoods, where practically no people live.
We make our own electricity, we have propane tanks on board and we can make drinking water by

We are back in Sweden

by Dutchie on 08-17-2019 at 04:59 AM
Almost one year after the lost blog post, we are back in Sweden.
This time, however, we will travel to the utmost northern coast of the European continent, far beyond the Polar Circle.
Weather permitted, of course.
I looked it up, we are travelling up to 71 degrees latitude, which is the European equivalent of the most northern part of Alaska, Barrow, even beyond Prudhoe Bay.
We are really excited!
We hope for a wonderful time of hiking, campfires and spotting

I feel very blessed.

I finally ate pizza!

by Dutchie on 07-15-2018 at 12:58 AM
Not a big deal, some of you might say.
But the point is: I have not eaten pizza since my surgery, 1,5 years ago.
So yesterday was a family day and we went out for lunch as well as dinner.

For lunch we ended up in a restaurant where food choices were very limited.
But there was pizza!
I reminded myself, that I was NOT on a diet and ordered a slice of tuna pizza.
And though it tasted good, I craved some healthy protein and my veggies.

After 1,5 year

by Dutchie on 07-09-2018 at 05:01 AM
Last week was my 1,5 year surgiversary.
Time flies when you are having fun!

My sleeve does his job and so do I.
We are really a good team.

For the last couple of months I have maintained this weight, sometimes I weigh a bit more, sometimes a bit less.
And to be honest, I don't feel I have to do much to keep it like that.
My sleeve works itself, more or less.

I eat approximately between 1200 and 1300 calories per day, according
