On a hot summer day back in the nineties a blond girl with blue eyes was born. Growing up near the farms, where she could ride her horses, play in the forest, build tree houses and prepare herself to explore the rest of the world, she got older and more curious deciding to leave this place. After 25 years things should have changed a lot at her birthplace, but let’s find out if it actually did change.
As you might figure, that blond blue-eyed girl is me. Two days ago I walked around at my birthplace and took photos. Just to see if my memory would be shocked or not by the possible changes.
I made a walk from my house to the forest on one of the first hot days of spring and took a bunch of photos. I would like to show you the place where I grew up and especially the surroundings where I used to climb the trees as a kid, ask the farmers for some eggs to bring back home, moo to the cows and just be happy outside exploring it all.
Here are a few of the pictures I took that day.
I must say, it feels like nothing really changed. I still get the same vibe as I walk around and I can’t find anything new or adjusted. Just the place where I used to take care of the horses is now a bit deserted and has one little Shetland Pony running around instead (I couldn’t take photos of the please, sorry!). I hope it stays this way and that the beautiful countryside and especially the forests will always look like this. It will always feel like home.
Is your birthplace still the way you remember it from when you were a kid?
