The other day I came up with this idea to do a review of the month, so you can have a little sneak peek in our live while we are not out travelling. We both have a day job, so we try to get out during the weekend as much as possible. This month has been full with all sort of activities. Let me tell you all about them.
Every year we go to the ‘Vakantiebeurs’ in Utrecht, which is the biggest travel fair in The Netherlands. So of course this January we went there again and came home with lots of inspiration. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen some of my pictures of the fair in my instastories.
We looked into trips to Japan and some destinations closer to home, like the North Coast of Spain and the Dolomites in Italy. Either one will probably be our destination for our spring roadtrip.
There is also a hall with lots of camping gear and this year there was a stand with rooftop tents, which we added to our list of gear we would love to purchase in the future.
Ofcourse we also went hiking, this time we ventured to the Kloosterbos in Belgium, where we did just a small hike in the late afternoon and we were so lucky to come across 4 deer on our hike! I can barely believe it myself, since I had never seen a deer in this area before.
We also stayed close to home for our walks with Milow where we ventured into the forest as much as possible.
Ofcourse I can’t go an entire month without going out just to photograph, so I went into town to do some night time photography.
The last weekend of January Andy and I headed out to Bruges with one of my friends. We visited the brewery the Halve Maan. I had never visited the brewery before, but ofcourse I did have some Brugse Zot before, which is one of the house brands of the brewery. Did you know that they transport the beer underneath the streets of Bruges? I will tell you all about Bruges in another blog.
As you can tell we had a busy, but fun month of January. Along with a lot of trips and fun activities we also had a lot of appointments for our new home, which they hopefully start building in June. Keeping our fingers crossed for that.
So what did you do this month? And would you like me to continue posting a review of our month?

I’d love to keep hearing what you get up to every month! You guys were certainly busy in January with lots of fun stuff! How exciting to spot deer on your walk. We used to live out in the country and we had a family of 13 deer that lived on our property. I loved waking up and seeing them out in the pasture every morning. They’re such gentle-looking creatures!

Yes it really was a busy month, so this weekend we took some time to charge the battery.
That must be incredible to have 13 deer living on your land. I would try to spot them every morning with a cup of tea in my hand.
