Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 77

Today I did something I really love. I put on a wetsuit, which is an action that I seriously don’t like. The only item of clothing that is harder to put on than a wetsuit ( even more than my jeans from before Corona) is a wet wetsuit. But the opportunity of putting on myContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 77”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 76

The value of blackout curtains should not be underestimated. In the past week I realised that my sleep is struggling to catch up with my daytime routine. I find that after sundown I need a few hours for my brain to catch up to the fact that it’s time to go to bed. With sundownContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 76”

Life in the yonne of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 74

There’s a song, called “Sally Williams Nougat” about an expat missing home and some experiences in my home town. Some days are like that. Missing home and the “Sally Williams Nougat” In days like these I make myself a cup of Five Roses tea and think about having it on the porch at my momContinue reading “Life in the yonne of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 74”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 73

Strangers on the Internet. One day, just less than 8 years ago I moved to a new city, starting a new life. I am my nature a social creature and a proud nerd, and as a result I added a lot of people on Twitter from the new city that I would call home. IContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 73”

Life in the time of Corona – Captian’s log: Day 72

I find it hard to imagine a world going back to normal. Everyone talks about a “new normal”. I am sure I mentioned it in some form or another as well. I don’t even know what that would be like. For a little while at least we will be wearing masks in public, and keepingContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captian’s log: Day 72”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 71

I was reading up on some conspiracy theories this evening. The sheer amount and the variety of topics are kind boggling! It makes me wonder why we like conspiracy theories and why we as humans believe some obvious untruths. I am neither a psychologist nor a philosopher, but even so I find it fascinating. WhatContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 71”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log:Day 70

It’s been 10 weeks I since they closed everything. There’s an air of hope in the air as restaurants start preparing to open their terraces on the 1st of June. I took the train for a bit of my journey back from the beach and put on my mask while on public transport. It isn’tContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log:Day 70”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 69

It’s been 69 days and I still have to check every day what was yesterday’s count. I even noticed I counted a bit odd a couple of days ago and had to go back and edit the posts! Today I continued my mini break at the beach with another long morning beach walk. The sandContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 69”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 68

Today I thoroughly enjoyed my minibreak. After sleeping in, practicing my Duolingo and catching up on social media I still had the time to walk on the beach before breakfast! After breakfast we decided to visit the little villages around Zeeland for some sightseeing and shopping. I love the fact that in the middle ofContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 68”
