The Yurts of Vero – Co, Namur

Watch this post on Instagram

I just need a few things to be happy. Nature, food, sun and love 🌞 That’s not too much to ask, isn’t it? No for real, if there is something that calms my soul, then it is carefree days in nature. A minimalist way of life. In the last few days I have had an amazing experience with my friend. We enjoyed my birthday while staying in a yurt and able to enjoy a hot tub and sauna every moment of the day (and night). We also enjoyed long walks and captivating views. On my birthday we visited (unexpectedly) Namur, went to the organic shop and picked up back to the yurt. There we picked salad and herbs from the garden and enjoyed a cozy teppanyaki dinner while watching the sunset. Bliss 🌅 My heart still shines with love. Oh and guess what? Finally I finished my studies 👩🏾 🎓 Woop woop! I was definitely not an average student who was always exploring new opportunities and other talents as I left my studies in the background. So yes, it was a fight. I’m definitely not the girl with the high grades 🤣 But hey! I’ve done it, and this is definitely a milestone and I’m SO glad I’ve got this horrible (yes horrible) chapter behind 😄 never understood people saying ‘Your fun student life, it’s the best time in your whole life!’. There is definitely no agreement on this issue. Now it’s time for a new chapter 🏠🙈 Pretty nervous about it 🙃🙃🙃
