Good habits to take home from a holiday!

Going on holiday is always a welcome change in scenery and the best part is the fact that you get to experience brand new things, or simply reconnect with your inner needs. While vacationing, you usually create a healthy balance between activities and time for yourself, and while some beneficial things are highly specific to certain locations (such as watersports or adrenaline filled activities), there are others which you can “take” with you and nurture in your everyday life.

Warning: we have totally avoided cliches in this list, so if you were looking for such things as the “Eiffel Tower” or “The Tower of London”, you won’t be finding those here.

Secret low seasons and how to avoid crowds during your vacation

Most of the time, it doesn’t matter if you are traveling with your entire family, as a pair or solo, if there is one thing everyone wants to avoid - it is crowds. Standing around entrances to cultural sites, Zoos or even restaurants isn’t ideal even in the best of times, and if there is one thing we have collectively learned from last year, it’s this: unknown people huddled together in larger groups isn’t just mind numbing, it’s also unhealthy. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your vacation like you used to, but a different approach will help you on so many levels.

The ideal vacation: you, your family and a crackling fireplace – stay safe, stay inside

The prototype of the classical fireplace appeared as early as the ancient times, back when humankind was still learning how to use fire, taming it and willing this energy to work for their benefit. After a while, it got a special place inside the house, also called the “hearth”, getting the status of being the dominant element of the interior space of a home. Maybe watching an open flame and sitting near it is imprinted in our genetic memory, taking us back to simpler times and giving us a sense of protection and comfort.

Top 6 nature and sightseeing spots to visit while in Grafschaft Bentheim

The Grafschaft Bentheim region has a long history, dating back to the Holy Roman Empire, flourishing ever since, through the middle ages and the early modern period to our days, always managing to somehow overcome history. The people from this region are independent, free-spirited and courageous. The entire place emanates mythos and stories, no wonder the Brothers Grimm got inspired by the eerie, dense forests and the marshlands, writing such fairytales as Hansel and Gretel and Sleeping Beauty. There is something about this area that simply switches our imaginations on and whispers about lights in the bogs you shouldn’t follow, castles older than time itself and forests so dense that they tell their own stories.
