When I travel

to Amsterdam, I usually go via Haarlem. It is a nicer and much more quiet around a quarter to seven in the morning. Yesterday I was rather happy there were no people because I had to take a lot of pictures of the misty morning. I hopped up and down the train, left to right […]

August

the month when the nights are already drawing in, is a nice month. It can be warm still, and nature finds itself between coming and going. Leaves are starting to fall and brambleberries are ripening.
