I made it! – the challenge

On the other hand, I did already buy something new yesterday; a shovel and rake for my new garden project. I am inspired to work on new projects and fortunately there was no one in the neighbourhood that…

For me having coffee or tea with a friend is an experience, joining a course to study something or going on holiday. It can be something small that only takes an hour or it can take several weeks up to a year. Every experience will have a carbon footprint…
