Living in a capital situated in a valley has its drawbacks. The pollution for one. The pollution readings were high this week, so we escaped the city on the weekend and went nature exploring and it was immensely refreshing.
On our way to the woods, we passed through a village fallen into oblivion. I am always drawn to old, abandoned houses, imagining the stories they hold, the life that was led inside and around...
The pine woods smelt wonderfully, hiding lot of amazing small clearings where we could retreat and have our own little picnic, enjoying the sunny and surprisingly very warm weather.
We went acorn and pinecone picking which we already used to decorate the house. I also cannot wait to try some stove simmers with those pinecones I've been seeing around the Internet.
I hope your weekend was just as good as ours.
