I can’t believe I’ve never written about India before. I love India. From the bottom of my heart. I’ve visited it three times and every time I’ve been fortunate to stay with locals and visit many fascinating places. My first visit to India was in 2009. There was an international youth summit that would take...

On Cretan mountains a few kilometers west from Agia Paraskevi a sheep family of four were rushing along the road, their little ears dangling in the rhythm they trotted. I could almost imagine the little runaways carrying tiny suitcases, especially because we had just seen the rest of the flock about two kilometers down the...

It is the first real winter day of the year. The kind when snow sparkles and forms heaps in the best possible powdery way. One of those days when you can hear your footsteps crunching and winter clothes rustling. Just in time for the first day off and the timeless days. Almost like mother nature...

It is deceivingly easy to find your way in Amsterdam. So easy in fact that in the end you’re bound to get lost. This is what a hairdresser from Jordaan explained to me when we were having lunch at one of the charming terraces along the Singel. Later that day, and the next day, I...

Up in this latitude, a November walk starts with a sunrise and ends in a sunset. There’s no time to go over today’s schedule or fix a quick lunch when the few rare rays of light pierce through pines and spruces. You have to seize the moment. Soak in the daylight. Nevermind the ‘what if...

My son sometimes asks me why the sea is blue. For him that question is not so much a matter of acquiring information rather than a way to demonstrate his knowledge. However, as we know, the answer is not a straightforward one. In a white bucket that same water is white, no matter what the...

Usually I’ve avoided writing about trips beforehand because at least for me it is more than likely that things won’t turn out as planned. Unfortunately it is quite often so that if I don’t fall ill, there will be an airline strike or bankruptcy. This year in particular has been the kind that should be...

Sometimes when you travel your day turns out quite different than planned. Today was one of those days. I’m still digesting everything that happened but so far I’ve come to the conclusion that not everyone was playing by the rules. However, there were some who filled in, played more than their part, and saved us when...

If I lived by the sea, I would take a photo of the sea every day to see if there are any two days in the year that look the same. My hypothesis being that there aren’t. Then I would probably take a picture of the sea at different times of the day to see...
