Looking back on February: Crazy early spring & a microadventure

BLOG Looking back on February | Early Spring

At the end of the month I like to look back on where I’ve been and what I’ve done. On how I felt and what was on my mind. I could have posted these photos on Instagram, but I didn’t. Now they’re in February’s photo diary where I leave snowy Sarajevo for The Netherlands. Usually February is a bit of a difficult month, it’s not green yet, it’s still cold and the sunrise I terribly late. This year was different though. No, not the sunrise, no. But it was warm and sunny. There were blue skies, nature started to wake up. I even saw little lambs. This crazy early spring arrived almost at the same time as I did. Lucky me!

The main reason of my visit was work. It feels strange call it work, I gave two presentations, but yeah, I guess that’s work. Besides work I tried to visit as many friends as possible. When I’m meeting friends, I don’t really feel like taking photos, but at the same time it’s nice to have them. That’s always the thing, I know that I want it later, but don’t feel like it now. “Help me remember to take a selfie with you.” (why not doing it right away?) and then on my way home I get a message, “We forgot the selfie”.

Nonetheless, here’s me looking back on February, a few sweet weeks in The Netherlands.
