Once again we let the lines go and went on anchor up in the lakes. We made it as last boat through the lock yesterday with 9 minutes to spare! Woke up to this beautiful view this morning. Misty but warm and nice.
A great miniweekend.



God natt, good night, goede nacht, buenas noches, boa noite, buonanotte.

All different languages meaning the same thing.

Languages is funny. i love learning new words, put them into sentences, say something totally incorrect and then learn the correct by a local. It is difficult to leran Dutch especially in Amsterdam as everyone speaks English and it is crowded with tourists.

But I refuse!

When I go to a bar, resaturant, shop or get a question from someone I answer in Dutch and I ask my questions, order my food in Dutch. I try and I get better everyday. I can have conversations, follow a tv program, do test and read magazines now. That is pretty cool.

It is pretty awsome to learn a new language again, last time was Spanish over 15 years ago and most of it is forgotten. I can`t really remember when i learned English as I learned it at very young age. All Swedes do. :)

But I remember that when you learn a new language it is like a new world opens up around you.

When my Dutch is fluent ( wich is has to be in a year) I will go over to catch up the Spanish again…

Back in january I wrote about a photoshoot we had in the boat for a friend and her schoolproject.

She finished the project with good grades and I  have a  pic to show you. She wants to do some more pics this winter and I am keen to do it.
