Autumn

12 posts

Autumn, interchangeably known as fall in North America, is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier and the temperature cools considerably. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees.

Hemelbestormers

The Grote Kerk in Naarden has one of the most beautiful vaults in the Netherlands. The entire barrel vault has been painted and fully preserved. The paintings were made between 1509 and 1518. On the north side is depicted the Passion of Christ from the New Testament. In contrast, on […]

Rabat

Rabat is the capital of modern Morocco. And you can see that. The buses have windows and air conditioning, the sidewalks are complete and clean. Here the money is spent.

Casablanca

The city is perhaps less beautiful than the imperial cities, but here you meet hospitable people and taste the real Morocco.

New Home

Marrakech

City of Marrakech, city of soeks, medina, Koutabia and smog. Where horses and donkeys are still forms of motorisation. Great food, splendid palaces and annoying merchants. Go there yourself if you can…

Ourika Valley

The Ourika Valley is just half an hour drive from the city of Marrakech in Morocco. Although the travel guides say this valley is relatively unspoiled, this only counts for the Atlas mountains around, not the villages. They are very spoiled, but also very colourful!

Water Works

I have no idea what they’re doing, but with the sun behind it, it’s a spectacular view. Oosterdok, Amsterdam. [Update] Actually, they have moved the Chinese floating restaurant 40 meters to the west. Guess it was too close to China 🙂 The new walkway is quite nice though! [Update] Even […]
