A Road trip to the Black forest in Germany – Vanlife family

We went on a road trip to the Black Forest in Germany

We hit the road with our family of five in our trusty little Volkswagen camper van.
And naturally, we made a little overview video of our adventures there! There where miles of road, lots of cuddles and laughs. But also a lot of chaos in the back of the van with our three kids! The breaks had a misfunction we had to fix, we swam in rivers and waterfalls, and discovered this beautiful and mysterious part of Europe in our Little Vanlife trip with 5 of us in a bus!

We made a lot of precious memories! We won’t say it was easy or relaxing traveling with three small children. Traveling with kids can be a challenge and is hard work! But the memories are definitely worth all the chaos! We explored this part of Europe and it was so beautiful that we will be back for sure to discover more hidden places of this magical place!

We hope you like our video about our road trip to the Black Forest!
Maybe we’ll make a longer 30-minute “documentary/vlog video” with all the moments so we can tell the full story of our adventure!
What do you think!? Would you like us to make a longer and more detailed video!? We would love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you for a beautiful summer

Summers like these is is where memories are made.
Moments we will treasure forever.
Days like this one.
Sunshine, friends, and family… all we need!
We gathered together to celebrate the summer and our friendships, to chill, talk, eat, laugh and be happy!

True friendships to us don’t mean we have t meet every week, or even every month or year. It doesn’t mean we talk over phone on a daily basis. We have a busy life, and our friends are busy too. But when it comes down to it, they will be there to share the important moments with us and if you need them you know you can call them anytime. And they know they can call us whenever they need us!

We loved to share the first harvest of our veggie garden with our friends in a beautifully styled BBQ garden party! The hot summer weather asked for ice cold beverages so we teamed up with the delicious brand’s  Roestig Blond Beer, Lemonaid+ & Charry tea to keep our guests fresh and hydrated!

We hope you love our homage video to our friendships and the summer!
Do you like these kinds of video’s!?
We also get together in a new-year dinner, would you like to see that one in a winter edition video!? Let me know in my insta post or in the comments below!

Thank you to Roestig blond, Lemonaid & Charry tea for sponsoring this post. As usual, all thoughts & opinions in this post are sincere and 100% our own.

To the Moony and back

Having small kids, a career, wanting to have a free life and travel a lot, running a household can be a bit much sometimes!
Having extreme happy moments, and then the extreme overwhelming exhaustion kicks in! Feeling so tired at the end of every single day I tend to get a bit frustrated. Will this ever get any easier!? Everything is such a struggle. Never a moment of peace. Always moving, always something or someone to take care of, clean, work, manage.

But at the end of the day, I go through the pictures of the last couple of months and I realize… Years from now I will probably look back and see that these are the happiest years of my life! The childhood of girls, seeing them grow up, and experiencing so much love in our little family is the best thing that ever happened to me!

Our family photo’s always have been so important to me. And as soon as I tend to forget how lucky I am (because all parents know… this parenting thing is HARD and completely exhausting) I Flip open one my photo albums and my heart just opens up, my racing mind just calms down and I get this wave of gratefulness that just washes over me like a Tsunami of LOVE!

Photo’s make me remember what my heart already knows but what my head is to busy to notice. Looking at our photo’s is a tool to help me just stop and be mindful, it helps me realize how many good things are happening right now! And most important, It helps me focus on all the positive, instead of on the few negatives in my life!

Therefore I would say having photo prints and/or albums is improving my quality of life! And it’s so valuable to have as we will grow older and our lives, the world, and the people around us will change too. Photos are little time capsules. Great to have to lay around, amazing to be able to give your children as they grow up.

There are so many advantages to having photo’s in print! It just basically makes me really really really happy whenever I look at them. I got so inspired by that feeling of happiness while flipping through my new Moonylab book that I decided to make this happy little video with our DJI drone!

Moonylab is offering all of my followers a 10% discount using the code Wildandboho10 while placing your order!

Check out our video, and then the backstage Images below that Michiel took from me while I was shooting this video!

Hope you enjoy my outburst of happiness in this little experiment-video.
I put the video on my NEW InstaTV channel for the world to see!
Would you like to see more of these short videos on my Instagram?

Love,
Jolanda Marti
