Dear members and appreciated participants,
the period we are currently in is different from what we were used to so far. With certainty, this period is an opportunity for us to look at ourselves, to set goals again (small and big steps), to do everything for which there has not been enough time so far…
We would like to share with you some of the glimpses, thoughts, anecdotes that some of our members have provided to us from their home environment in these particular circumstances. This is to encourage members of the association and to raise awareness among the general public about how people with deafblindness spend their quarantine days.
Tanja is one of the most successful Slovenian climbers. Together with her personal assistant, another Tanja, she spends her days mostly in the spirit of saying “a healthy spirit in a healthy body”.
How do we spend quarantine?
Days can be boring, but we try to fill our daily routine. We tried baking. Together, we baked gluten free biscuits made from millet and buckwheat flour. While the cookies were in the oven, we read all the current news that day. We set the timer on the oven so the cookies were just right baked. 😊
Tanja G. has her own climbing wall at home in the garage. Despite the cold weather, she did some wall workouts. The next time I joined (Tanja L.) and now we climb together twice a week.

We try to spend a lot of time in the fresh air, so we both feel better. We also take longer walks every day. Now that the days are longer and the temperatures are higher, it’s really a pleasure to be out in the sun.
