Spring

Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it will be autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. At the spring equinox, days are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.


I was so lucky to be invited for an after work flight from Lelystad (The Netherlands) to Stadtlohn (Germany) to have a schnitzel. I had never flown in a ‘real’ airplane before (only air busses) and I am grateful for the experience!

Just 30 minutes by train from Amsterdam you can make nice walks through the Kennemerduinen. Allthough next to Haarlem and Amsterdam, you won’t meet many people on your way. But you will see lot’s of woodpeckers and jays! Oh, and some ‘wild’ horses… This walk is between the NS stations […]

In the south of the Netherlands the idyllic valley of the River Geul is one of the most fantastic places for a nice walk. See for yourself…

Pentecost in Valkenburg



The oldest city of the Netherlands, but unfortunately bombed by the allied forces in 1944. They finished the destruction of the city already started by demolishing the old castle and the magnificent city walls. Why does man always need to destroy?

The last months I haven’t posted many new pictures. I have a new job, and not much time left after travel to make many pictures. Therefore some pictures from my new office building, and the view from it.  

New Job, New Tower


May days in South Limburg are perfect for a little walking trip. Little rivers, valleys, castles, water mills, ancient churches, it’s all there in walking distance from Valkenburg.
