A quick one for the weekend whilst I prepare a new batch of pictures.
I went for a nice trip to the beach in Aarhus where I had a longish walk. The Baltic Sea was freezing cold in January, but – you won’t believe it – I saw several people jumping directly from the piers into the waves. Ouch! Although they just had a quick swim of about 10 mins or so, it must have been brutal. I told a Danish friend and he laughed it must be the Viking blood or something!

Impressions from Croatia – Part 1

Croatia 1

It’s getting colder here, so my longing for sun and everything summer gets stronger…
As I said in another post some time ago, I will share some impressions from my 2017 holiday in Croatia in the coming weeks.
Please don’t consider this as a comprehensive travel report (remember this is not a travel blog), just some random photographic impressions.
Today the focus is on the beautiful city of Baska on the island Krk.

Nice view from a hill nearby:

One of the typical alleys you find everywhere:

Croatia 3

A lot of tourism though, it’s not an insider tip anymore, I’m afraid.
Still Krk has a lot to offer besides beautiful beaches and the clearest water you can imagine.

More to come soon, stay tuned!

Some random impressions from my latest trip to the Netherlands.
Focus in part 1 is (obviously) the seaside.
More to come in the next days…

Another round of holiday pics.
Today it’s getting “beachy”. 😉

But do not ask me where I am going,
As I travel in this limitless world,
Where every step I take is my home.

Family Pastime

Although I usually try to post my very latest pictures, it is sometimes nice to look back…
Exactly one year ago I was on a beach in the south of France watching a family playing boccia. I really like how immersed they were in the game.
