Paris: Think big

Finally, the time of trips to nearby European cities has returned. Maybe not so great for the earth, but great for me! In the past weeks I visited Paris and Lisbon like the pandemic never existed. I must say, it feels great to have these opportunities again. To have the luxury to go wherever you want. To spend one weekend sipping wine on a boat passing the Louvre and the… Lees verder »Paris: Think big

Bella Italia

This summer we took our campervan out for its first real trip: three weeks of touring through Italy. It was equipped with fans and a fridge, what more do you need? Who cares that we would be sleeping underneath a ceiling covered in black insulation material and not much else! We loaded a surprisingly large amount of stuff into the van and took off. To Poggibonsi and beyond! Unexpected destinations… Lees verder »Bella Italia

For now, let me take a mental journey to the country in which so many memorable moments took place. Throughout… Lees verder »homenaje a España | homage to Spain

Realising that it is highly unlikely that I will be on a plane this year feels rather odd, though it is great for the climate of course. I cannot remember… Lees verder »Living the good life in France

Golfjes als diamanten

Ik kan wel wennen aan het schrijversleven denk ik. Ik zit momenteel op een zonnig terras aan het Amsterdam Rijnkanaal, met uitzicht op Utrecht’s eigen Erasmusbrug. De brug hier is vernoemd naar Prins Claus en, hoewel toch een stukje kleiner dan zijn Rotterdamse tegenhanger, een mooi bouwwerk (of zoals Rijkswaterstaat het zegt: kunstwerk). Al mijn hele leven vind ik het fantastisch om aan het water te zitten. Rivieren, meren, de… Lees verder »Golfjes als diamanten
