Minimini campervan- how to build bed for Beetle?

How about the bed?

 Berlingo had #plywood bed.  Beetle has now  bed made from viscom - material is recycled from fair constructions. I think this will work.

First the pattern

And how surprising it was, when wiscom structures  did not fit.  Or  could not get in their place cos of Beetles own limbs- like coxa, trochanter, femur, tibia, and tarsus.

So viscom is smaler than actual space. 

Looks fine 😁.

And then, really the most important thing- signage-> #mootlebeetle #moobil

So sad to say goodby for good old Berlingo- but I just couldn’t take those soundeffects and lights any more 😩

Too many difficulties with Berlingo. I guess over 200000 kilometers was too much .

But now I have new companion - Beetle, the one I wanted maybe since I was 18 years  old girl. 

My little red lipsticks nickname  could be moobee, MOObil, Beetle Mootle - 

I’m planning to use it as a ”miniminicampervan” . 

I can sleep there,just enough space, cos Im so short. Sometimes its good to be short ❤️.

Cow camp is over and I´m in love

Not in years, I´ve felt that my life stays behind, that its not here anymore, where I am. 

Thought this will never happen again, that it was just young silly one who can think and feel so.
But no, it happened, now in my fifties, it happened, my heart and mind is with those lovely cows at Ilomantsi. 

Is it the Karelian soul that is now crying? 

So if you ever want to have experience of your lifetime stay at Cowcamp lehmäleiri

Or just enjoy some nights here Maukkulan Mustikkamäki.

Cow lady Riitta-Miina was relentless and kind to teach all of us to milk a cow with bare hands and machine. As an educator I can say that she was the master.  True Jedi Instructer. And now she has one  that will follow.

I think this is my best selfie ever :D

The bed and breakfast place and the owner Lady Anita Timonen, oh my god how I miss you too.  Anita makes best food, she has own bakery too- super woman I say!

This is Anita, and SHE have one MOO now too :D

Some lovely bakery goods to Helsinki, karelien pies made to Kyyttö -milk (Kyyttö is traditional old finnish cow breed)
Even that we woke up at 6 am to have breakfast and then morning milking at 7 am.  I had some energy to paint

We made some cheese from the milk that we milked.


Best time, I miss you so.

MOObil went to Sauna

 First stop about 150km from Helsinki Kouvola and Tykkimäensauna area.

As Im saunalover this was heaven. No time limit ( I made about 4hours), one main Sauna- warmed with earth gas, one Saunaferry- warmed with wood.  Drinks and food and possibility to dip in to the lake.
