Wednesday a week ago, we went on a city trip to Lisbon. Our flight left late in the afternoon and as it was a small plane, it was easy to see the views from the window. I snapped some photos on my phone (I was too lazy to take my big one out of theContinue reading “Aerial”

My 4 favourite musea in Amsterdam
While I mainly blog about nature and landscapes, I felt like blogging about something a little closer by this time. I was inspired to write about my favourite musea in Amsterdam after my latest visit to the Rijksmuseum with a friend last Monday. I haven’t seen all musea in Amsterdam, or the Netherlands for thatContinue reading “My 4 favourite musea in Amsterdam”
While currently it doesn’t seem like it, I’m pretty sure we’ll be getting at least some snow this year. Maybe not as much as when I took these photos, but who knows. Five years may not seem like so long ago, but a lot can change in that time. I love the look of the snowy branches. It’sContinue reading “Snowy branches”
Springtime in winter
Recently, I went on a walk and saw various crocuses blooming. Normally they don’t start blooming until early Spring. The mild weather is obviously confusing nature! The flowers reminded me of a walk to a local park a few years ago, when the crocuses bloomed as well (in season). I’d forgotten all about those photos! I recentlyContinue reading “Springtime in winter”

While I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to freezing temperatures (in the Netherlands it always gets water cold), I do love a sunny, cold and crisp Winter’sContinue reading “Dreaming of a white Christmas”
In 2008, a friend and I visited a beautiful area in the eastern part of the Netherlands. It’s called the Hunneschans, which used to be a Medieval fortified structure by the Uddelermeer. These days, you can still see the earthen structure of the ring, as you can see on the bottom picture. It was aContinue reading “Hunneschans”
Rise and shine!
In October/November 2009, I worked on an archaeological excavation. Getting to the digging site from home took a few hours and to beat the rush hour, we had to be on the highway by 6 am. Luckily, during the week, we could stay at a ‘digging house’ closer to the site, which saved a lotContinue reading “Rise and shine!”
I love the colours that accompany the setting sun. In this photo, I particularly love the haziness and the almost pastel colours of the landscape before me, as I travel through the Dutch landscape.
