Photography / B&W Photography in Nijmegen

Nijmegen 2014
My mother and I spend the day shopping in Nijmegen. It was ok, but there are cities that I like better for shopping. I did take a picture of this pretty building. I can never decide if I like black and white or colour photography better. What is your favourite?

Travel / Solo: The start

New York City, USA 2009
There was this one time that I decided that I wanted to take this English Language course and I planned on going to London for that. When I suddenly realized that I shouldn't go to London (were I had already been three times before at that moment), but to New York City. Go big or go home right?! So I made all the arrangements for my trip and somewhere in September of 2009 I went to New York City all on my own. First I had to go to London and there I could hop on my plane to New York City. I remember sitting there at the gate in London, waiting for boarding to start. One of the screens read: JFK, New York City and I was like OMG I'm going to New York City. And I'm all alone. I can't remember ever being that excited! I made friends the moment I arrived in the student dorms I was staying at. So only the first few hours and the very last few hours of my trip, I was actually alone in NYC. The whole point of this story? I might have planned some real solo travelling in the very near future. More on that later =)

Travel / Day Trip to Kleve, Germany

Kleve, Germany 2014
Like I said last week, I went on a tiny holiday myself. We went to a little town in Germany, called Kleve. The drive there is only a little over an hour, so it's not too long. This was the second time we were there. So what did we do while we were there. I love going to supermarkets in other countries, because there are so many different things than at the supermarkets back home. Next to that, there are a lot of things that are cheaper in Germany than they're in The Netherlands. We went to Kaufland. For beauty shopping I prefer the USA, but Germany is pretty cool as well. A lot of beauty and body care products are cheaper than in The Netherlands. We went to DM. After doing all our shopping we went to the city centre and walked around for a bit (I didn't do anymore shopping there). We ended the day with a super healthy meal at McDonald's.
Don't forget to go on little day trips yourself from time to time!

Photography / Rearranging food

Almere 2014
Went to Almere for the day with my mother. This was what we had for lunch. Totally took my time taking this pictures (also ignored the stares that I got =D). The lighting here was amazing by the way, I wanted to take it home with me!

Travel / One Day Trips

Leiden 2014
One day trips are cute. They're tiny, small and should be appreciated. Just hop in your car or on the train and just go away for the day. You can go shopping the whole day, visit a museum, go to the park, have an amazing dinner, walk around taking pictures. There are so many things you could do in a day. You can keep it really inexpensive and it gives you the feeling you've been on a tiny tiny holiday. Yesterday I went on a tiny tiny holiday myself. We went to a little town in Germany, but more on that later.

Photography / Leiden

Leiden 2014
We went on a little day trip to Leiden and visited the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (The Dutch National Museum of Antiquities). The museum was pretty awesome for kids as well, my two little brothers really enjoyed themselves. I took this pictures just outside of the museum.

Photography / Homemade dinner

My mother made a delicious dinner, 2014

It's September and, as promised, I'm back! I would lie if I said that I have been thinking about my blog everyday for the last four weeks ;-) I did figure out what I want to do with my blog though, just before the start of September (I'm writing this on Sunday evening). I'm going to focus my blog on photography again just like I did before. I'm going to post pictures that I shot with my iPhone, my point & shoot camera and with my DSLR. I don't want to write about travelling when I'm not travelling myself. The moment I'll start travelling again, this is the place where you will see my pictures and read my stories first.
