Weekje ontspannen?!

Mijn week naar Zuid Duitsland zit er al weer voor de helft op. Ik heb me ondertussen op een "ontspannen" manier al aan behoorlijk wat spierpijn geholpen :-) Ik zou wel en massage kunnen gebruiken!

's Avonds samen met Mario de kroeg in. Zoals je wel zult merken, word ik een echte kroegtijger deze dagen! Donderdag:

An Ode to Mr. Darcy

My training studio sets itself apart from all the others because I have an indispensable co-trainer: my dog Mr. Darcy. I love to learn, and dogs can teach us a lot about life. Of course there is the proverbial unconditional love, but there is also unconditional acceptance. A dog has the uncanny ability to look through all bodily imperfections and see the heart of the matter. It is not easy for us humans to truly accept others as they are.
