Earlier tonight we found ourselves in a church, waiting for a concert to start. We’d been invited by friends of the host we’re staying at for the moment, and the only thing we knew about the concert was that the musician was to play a Celtic drum of some sort.
It turned out to be a wonderful concert, with a German musician who played several different Irish instruments, and sang. Afterwards we were invited to take part in a mingel-party with great snacks and wine. All was free, and we were smiling at how nice things seem to turn out when we let them happen.
And last night, we had invited some friends over for dinner, and together with our hosts we planned and cooked a really good, yet simple, meal that everybody was satisfied with. It’s so nice here, that coming together with friends and family really is important for most people and the step from thinking of inviting someone over, to actually doing it, is rather short.
At this dinner we also enjoyed to be able to use some of the pieces of our wardrobe that are for “party”, actually a simple way of just making our regular outfits go a bit more festive, or to spice everything up a little with a pretty necklace and a shirt.
When it’s turned a bit cooler, like it has here now, it’s no longer warm enough for Wivan to wear a skirt or a summer-dress, so the long pants have to do.
Now we’re ready for another week of “workaway”; a few hours of work in exchange for food an accomodation. And at this place we’re really being spoiled and loved to the maximum!
