Summer

Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.


The Vechtdal (River Vecht Valley) in Overijssel is a very popular destination for campers and bikers. It is a very diverse environment with excellent biking paths. However, for hikers looking for peace and quiet, and want to see things people on wheels can’t, this is not entirely the place…

Another two day hike. The first day over the Mookerheide and around the St. Jansberg to Groesbeek. Second day from Groesbeek over the Devil’s Mountain and through the Philosopher’s Valley to Nijmegen.

Three very different walks; high sandy grounds from Roermond to Brüggen through the moors of Meinweg, the lakes in the Schwalm valley around Brüggen and a walk back to the Netherlands along the Schwalm and over the lower sandy grounds of the Schwalm moors.

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


Sometimes one thinks; why don’t we spend the weekend in Rotterdam? It really isn’t such a bad city. But why does it always rain there?
