Malexander camping sleeps the sleep of winter. Everything is covered in a white blanket of snow. The site is quiet and there is no traffic. But the camping ground is not empty at all. There are caravans standing on it protected from the cold. They are waiting for their owners, who return to Malexander every year to spend the lazy summer months here. The caravans left behind to assure the lovers of our village and Malexander camping that they already have a place here. During the high season, it can be difficult to find a free venue. There are many people eager to enjoy the lake and the surrounding woods. In the meantime, I walk around Malexander and take a look out over Lake Sommen from the high shore. I am surrounded by white and silence. These are ideal conditions for finding inspiration for my next artwork. I think that wandering around the campsite allows for special thoughts and feelings. In summer, the Malexander camping is the busiest place. Where most things happen. You can hear different languages – visitors come from many countries. You can hear children laughing, and evening conversations.
In winter, the place is quiet. But this silence invites you to take advantage of it.
