Therapeutic

You don’t have to have a green thumb to enjoy the benefits of planting. Just being outside of your house and having access to a garden reduces anxiety, stress and mental fatigue and can also improve concentration. All you need is a dash of sunshine, healthy soil, pots or a portion of your garden, garden…

Ascension Day 2022

The Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ was not an excuse to just sit still and get rotten in the sofa just because it’s a holiday. It’s actually a perfect day to explore and spend time with family. Well, in my case I can’t sit still. It’s impossible when you have a little kid!…

A Short Trip to Lindås Lock (Lindåsslusene)

At first, I couldn’t understand the concept of a sea lock. I thought it’s just gates and that the purpose is to controll the boat traffic. 😛 Good thing someone explained it to me and thanks to Wikipedia I now know that a lock helps boats to pass and navigate a canal or a river…

Another Achievement Unlocked

The old road was constructed in the late 1700’s as the demand for an effective way to send/deliver goods and mail increased. During that time,…

My Autumn Musings

It is that time of the year where everyday is gray and wet. The time that the mist takes over some of the early mornings. However, autumn is beautiful (because of its colours) just like the other seasons despite the fact that it is also depicted as something sad and is always a symbol of…

A Short Trip To Rex Garden

Stress has taken a toll on me these past few months. Physically, I got migranes and low energy. Mentally, I got depressed because of the situation we are in. Despite the effort to exercise and eat healthy, I felt that nothing is working. Good thing I have friends who motivate me to take a break…
