Spring Has Sprung in Brussels – Photo Essay 2


Another favourite of ours is Botanique/Kruidtuin. The smell of various blossoms greeted us when we entered the park. Lars and I were walking in the park round lunchtime, so lots of opportunities to observe – and photograph – lots of people eating, resting or going for a stroll.

A Morning in Sirmione


Although the Christmas festivities have already started in our home – Danes also celebrate the 23rd of December and Lars is no exception – I still have time for another post. It is not related to Christmas at all, but I simply cannot wait any longer to show you more pictures of our trip to Italy. After our stay in…
