Curious things inside and outside my country's borders.

the Netherlands

The Netherlands have always been in a love/hate relationship with water. Our history is highly influenced by it. In this part the focus will be on the Dutch and water, constructions and cities I lived in. This part of the website will be filled with information gradually.

"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries". Aldous Huxley (English writer, 1894 - 1963, best known for his 1932 novel 'Brave New World') was spot on with this statement. As we love to learn and adjust our thinking, we have crossed and will continue to cross boundaries in more ways than one.


As travelling is a wonderful way to spend free time, travel stories of physical boundry crossings are part of this website. With special attention to the World Heritage Sites.





In Europe a lot of interesting countries and sights can be found. A vertical garden, tea clipper, Cistercian abbey, a Zoo and one of the 6.000 Greec islands (our favorite amongst those 6.000), just to a name a few.

Canada has authentic primordial forrests we can only dream of in Europe, deep blue lakes, a mountain range and river shared with the Americans. Futhermore, Vintage Cars and Roller Derby Specials.

Highlights from our roundtrip through Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah such as X-rays, thé Zoo, missiles and plans, Kamikaze transportation, an old jail and a lot more.



World Heritage


On our trips we often have visited World Heritage Sites. Those have been compiled on this page.

In Africa we surely visited Egypt and Tunesia. The jury is still out on Marocco. A search on the attick will bring clarity.

In the Caribbean we visited two of the six Dutch Antilles (being Aruba and -our favorite - Curaçao) and furthermore a considerable time ago a short hop from Miami (Florida) to the Bahamas .
