There are a lot of musicians in my partners family. And during a surprise birthday party they all played some nice songs. Here are a few impressions. Eddy

It’s the last day of 2017, time for an overview… I didn’t make as many pictures as the previous years, but some of them are interesting. And all the best for 2018! Eddy

Cologne, December 2017

This year we celebrated Christmas in Cologne (Germany). Most people will know the Dom (cathedral), but Cologne also has a large amount of very old churches (around 1000 bc). And there are also lots of interesting museums, which can be visited quite cheaply with a tourist pass. And the most interesting part: our hotel was… Read more »

There is one advantage to this time of the year: the beautiful clouds… The first and last picture were taken in Antwerp, the others during a hike in the neighbourhood of Kortrijk. While we started with sunshine, a heavy storm caught up with us… Eddy

And this certainly isn’t my… Read more »

Wiltshire, August 2017

This is a part of Engeland I wasn’t familiar with: Wiltshire. And it’s a pretty part of England. With nice cottages, beautiful castles and plenty of rocks (with Stonehenge being the best known).  Just outside Wiltshire is Portsmouth, with an impressive maritime museum. Eddy

Ulm, July 2017

On our way back home we stopped in the German city of Ulm. Which has a nice cathedral, which was in contrast with the cathedrals we saw in France. Eddy
