VLOG 58: MIDSUMMER CELEBRATION

in dtubedaily •  5 months ago


A week is around since our stay during midsummer far away in the countryside.
There Reinis @art.visuals was filming a documentary, while the ladies played their typical role - preparing food for the boys. When I was free from my wifely duties, I frequently went for walks, roaming around the forest, the meadows, all alone. It was such a pleasure! Of course, we got to spend some time together, we had lovely long discussions with people around us.

Then the Summer Solstice celebration was happening. A fire was built, food was brought, flower and leaf wreaths were made, all in all to honor the sun. My favourite tradition - making flower wreaths - is a ritual worth taking notice of. The ring of the crown represents infinity and life cycle in Latvian culture, and all the plants each have their own individual healing power. They say that all the flowers and grasses collected during solstice are much more potent. Hence, the flower crown is a special thing to wear.

Those were some lovely 4 days with no internet connection, little electricity, no shower or grooming, or anything like that - just peace and quiet, some people and nature.

Thanks for watching! ✌🏼🌿

OMG how do you look so gorge without makeup on? I wish my skin was amazing as yours <3 Loved the vlog, hope you're having an amazing time eating lots of good food!

Haha, thanks, I actually don't have an amazing skin, but I am doing everything to do so. Refraining from sugar does wonders for me. :) I wish I was more comfortable with going barefaced, to be honest, so thanks for your encouraging comment!

Nice video and scenery . Thanks for sharing !
P.S. the vape-trick isn't working for the mosquitos here in Hamburg :P

Tried and tested? I heard you were badly bitten by these pesky little bugs. Don't scratch em too much! 😀

·
·

Haha yeah I am basically vaping all the time :D lol

but this little glags (Tabanidae) was hitting me several times and my leg and arm was swollen - but today everything is much better. Eventually because I used "ballistol" and "St. John's wort oil" to cure these parts and because i avoided to scratch :P

Oh, those are nasty and leave quite a mark. Latvians call them dunduri. Because they hum (dun) and prick (dur) (nevermind, I'm fascinated by language again). 😀

Cool way to combine these two actions to the name :P they are called "Bremse" in German.. which is basically a throttle or break. I don't know why this name. But yeah. Language ^^

Haha, so funny, bremze in Latvian means brake (the one in cars). We have so many German loan words! Zapte (a jam) from saft and more.
