Running schedule: week 1

Last week I ran 27 miles (43,5 km).

Never before have I run this much in only a week of time! I think the schedule I made is really hard, but if you plan in your runs, it’s easy to follow! The second run of last week was the hardest, because it was around 30 degrees Celsius outside, I walked all the way to the beach and then I ran 6 miles with the stroller! I had to take a break after 3,5 miles because I felt dizzy, because of the weather and the strength I needed to push the stroller. The other runs went pretty well!  Continue reading

I love scrapbooks!


As I mentioned in the title allready: “I just love scrapbooks”. At the moment I’m making a little book where I want to write down ideas of places to see and things to do in the United States. It’s a nice way for me to be creative and to personalize a boring notebook.

On the picture you can see a scrapbook that I made after I went to Honduras for a year with AFS. I’m actually really proud of that book, because I worked a long time on it and it contains lots of memories. Inside there are pictures of my latin friends, of places I visited in Honduras & of the most amazing moments I had with my boyfriend. It sometimes even makes me cry when I look at the pictures and the notes of that year. It was the best year of my life and I’m so glad that my parents gave me the chance to experience how to live in another culture, and to be around people you don’t know who don’t speak your language. It also makes me realize how time flies. I remember every single detail of that year as it was yesterday, but we are 2013 allready, and I was there in 2009 (till july 2010). Oh gosh, I’m getting old ;-)!

On the front page of my scrapbook you can see a little map of the country, and also some REAL money of Honduras and then some pictures and a little text about traveling, which I really liked. This was the text:

Travel is more than the seeing of sights;
it is a change that goes on,
deep and permanent,
in the ideas of living.
(By Miriam Beard Page)

I hope you liked the text and the scrapbook 😉
