holidays

With the heatwave sweeping the low counties (and Europe for that matter), my mind can’t help drifting towards the upcoming summer holidays in July. Anything else than Malta would be scandalous, so this time we are once more heading for this Mediterranean pearl. A pic taken from a sailing trip last year, brings back fond Continue Reading

It’s the last day on this long weekend trip, so we’re going to make the most of it. Like yesterday, with dinner at fish restaurant Perard.

Then there are the amazing dinners, and long walks one of which I took tonight. I’ve also meditated on the balcony in the mornings and in Continue Reading
