Finally, we have got everything figured out. Nienke has worked at her new school for almost two weeks, which she enjoys very much. Tamara started at her new school this morning: she will work in 4th grade on Thursdays and Fridays. She also still works in 5th grade at her previous school for one day a week. We are both very happy to have useful things to do and to get out of the house a little more.
Both of us are also working online for a couple of hours a week. Teaching English or Dutch is something we really enjoy doing. Hopefully, we can extend our online work in the next couple of months, so we can keep it up when we get back on the road. This way, we can travel and work at the same time, without having to worry about money!
By now, we have started to get used to our house. We found a rhythm of working, enjoying our meals together, walking with Sparta and watching tv. We would love to hang out with friends some more, but the corona rules here in The Netherlands are pretty tight. So, we just cuddle up on the couch when it’s raining, or go for a walk or a run when the weather is good.
In our little autumn break we took Tiny out for a couple of days; we went to the North of our country, Friesland. We spent three nights at park-ups next to the sea, one night at our friends (@Easy_overland) and one night next to a former castle. We truly loved walking along the beaches and through lovely little towns. It somehow surprises us that we also have very nice places to go to in The Netherlands!
Autumn has almost finished and winter is coming. We hope that it won’t be a very wet one, so we can keep going outside all the time. Sparta doesn’t like rain either, but he definitely does love to run around in the foggy grass and in the water of the river! We only have to put on our waterproof boots and follow him.
