Happy Gardening

Happy Gardening Frohes Gärtnern In a garden the world was lost, in a garden it was released. In einem Garten ging die Welt verloren, in einem Garten ward sie erlöst. Blaise Pascal   Everyone knows, that we, the Bookfayries, are closely related to the flower fairies. Therefore Dina and our Master ask us to write …

Crab Fishing in Norfolk

Crab & Lobster Krebsfang in Norfolk When we went to the beach with our dear Master and Dina yesterday, we Bookfayries immediately had to fly to a fine white boat on the shingle bank next to a rusty tractor and an old Land Rover. This promised an adventure.  Als wir gestern mit Dina und Masterchen …

Gamlebyen, Fredrikstad, Norway

The old part of Dina’s hometown is one of the top ten most scenic and popular spots in Norway. The Huffington post recently voted Norway as the best place on earth and Gamlebyen was the fifth reason for this decision. Not bad! But what makes Gamlebyen so special?

The slowness in ourselves so to speak. To detect this slowness …
