Merry Nomadic Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If I am not mistaken, this will be the 12th Christmas we spend on the go. Twelve years that we led our nomadic life moving from place to place.

And how do we make it work during the festive season?

Well it’s not always easy, it’s definitely some challenge, but we always try to make some fun during the preparation and we always celebrate it differently. I must say, it never is boring!

What’s the hardest part?

Well, definitely getting the traditional produce for Christmas Eve dinner at the current place we reside. At some places it is easier, at some much Β more difficult. Depending on this we create the menu. Sometimes we just invent new dishes, sometimes we want to be very traditional. Sometimes it is replacing products we can’t get or just having something odd at all. I remember having onion sup or paella for Christmas Eve supper! Less unusual thing is having a catfish or herring instead of the carp πŸ˜‰

What gives us the most fun?

Definitively being inventive when we haven’t got the tools needed πŸ˜‰

What about christmas decorations?

Well, this is always very minimalistic. If we plan to stay in a place longer than 1 year we would buy a tiny christmas tree or something of that sort. Other times, I just slice some magazines and weave something nice πŸ™‚

How do we celebrate?

Sometimes it’s just the two of us, sometimes it is with the visiting friends or family or with friends we just had made.

Depending on the mood, we either stay in the place we reside in, or take some Christmas vacations. There is no rule when selecting the destination – it can be the same country or something more exotic. This way or the other, it is always very active. πŸ™‚ Sitting and eating is definitely not our piece of cake… Although we love cakes! πŸ™‚
