At the Lake of Banyoles

P1010934

Some six months ago I posted this photo of a man reading at the Lake of Banyoles (Catalonia). My husband and I have always been in love with this lake and the small historic town alongside it.

And suddenly there was this superb, affordable flat that has a view on the lake. We discussed it for two days, but in our hearts already knew that we wanted to go and have a look at the house.

To make a long story short: we are going to move to Banyoles. This means we have hectic weeks ahead, so posting will not be one of my priorities for the next two months. But I will be back with more street photos showing what life is like in this terrific spot. Then picture me reading on a bench next to the lake!

Church visit

Every second weekend of September thousands of Dutch monuments, public and private, open their doors for a free visit. A unique occasion to enter buildings you know from the outside, but never could visit.

This picture was taken last year at the Old Church of Dordrecht; I am already looking forward to this year’s event.
