When it became clear that after China, the rest of the world was also affected by the coronavirus, I started posting photos matching the subject on my Facebook and Instagram accounts. It didn't take long before a plethora of funny memes appeared on the internet. I decided to link these to photos from my archive. After all, I was no longer able to take new photos.

All borders of our neighboring countries are closed. Usually, I travel abroad with my bull terrier Claire almost weekly to take photographs in abandoned buildings and at deserted places. We have been exploring together for almost 7 years. I invented the name "furbex" for this―urbex with a furry twist. In 2018, our adventures were published in a book called "Furbex." I have previously shared our photos here and here

For as long as this pandemic lasts, I will keep posting a daily COVID-19 fact by Claire just for fun. I want to cheer people up during this crazy time.

Gym memberships, one of the worlds biggest waste of money. Most people just don't bother to cancel cause they go a few times or just don't want the hassle of trying to cancel it.

The sad and terrible side of this is that there are very many women who are now having to spend 24/7 with their abusive husbands or partners. Femicide should maybe be added to coronavirus deaths. This is worldwide. "Domestic abuse killings appear to double during UK's lockdown" (The Independent)

I already reached my NY’s resolution of learning to make 20 new (to me) recipes, and I’m good without needing to bake bread. Last week, I wore a crop top and a long, pleated skirt to virtually visit Italy. Drank my wine and enjoyed my pizza, all to myself.

The son is around 16 months old and there is a toilet brush in the bathroom at the hotel and nowhere to hide it out of sight, so I carefully and with lots of eww, gah, blah make him understand that under no circumstance is he to touch it. So far so good. You know that feeling when there is too! much! quiet! when you have a small child. I found him in the bathroom, happily being very, very good. He was cleaning the toilet. With the brush I brought for the sole purpose of cleaning his bottle...
