My future home

Hihihihi! Hi from my adorable little box of a room, 2 by 3, with 90% of it filled with a super single, and with white washed walls with a red curtain dressing the small window, and one of Vincent van gogh's paintings at the foot of the bed (two people sleeping on a stack of hay).

Hello from this awesome little farm in the middle of nowhere which is north Holland! Nearest village is Boazum, nearest town Sneek (pronounced snake. Ssss), nearest big city is Groningen.

This farm has sheep and goats and rabbits and cows and a pig and chickens and ducks and I'm in heaven now this is so lovely.

We drove in from Hamburg, got here close to ten pm. It was still light out, and we saw some goats near the house so I slowed down (I was driving), opened the window, and baaed at them - and they all baaed back! So cuteeeee.

This is best, seriously, so I got my wild wilderness in Scotland and Switzerland, and here I am in an adorable little farm. Yayyyyyy.

I pranced around outside in one layer attempting to pet the sheep (they only let me vaguely touch their noses) and had even less success with the goats. But the pig was so cute, he/she was like a dog, really, he plonked himself down when I began to pat him, and leaned his head against my hand when I scratched his neck.


Okay now that I've let out a fraction of my excitement about the farm, I also want to express excitement about FINALLY getting to drive. Yes, practically the first time in 4 months. Nonetheless I think I did really well to adjust to left hand drive. It was totally fine. Though not according to my mum lol.

I got to drive at 220 kph! YES. Maintained for just a minute though, because later the road began to curve too much and I couldn't see ahead, so didn't want to go too fast. And at all other times there were too many slow pokes on the road. Median speed was perhaps 180 or 200 kph, which is already awesome. But I'm looking forward to a high of maybe 250 on the way back to Germany (Holland is too tame, I want my autobahn) hehehe.

Okay goodnight I want to wake up early so I can prance around the farm some more (no seriously, I was skipping everywhere)!
