9 April 2019 A wonderful daytrip with Luminita and Laur to Polovragi. A pearl in Romania: an impressive landscape and nature, a slippery walking tour through the caves cave 1 partly crawling through the women’s cave, where a colony of bats lives cave 2  Of course, a visit to the 500-year-old monastery of Polovragi is a must.

 

We attended the multidisciplinary, international conference on ‘Oncology in Medical Practice’ in Bucharest on 21-23 March 2019.

By the way, we stayed in the famous Capsa hotel !!

After the meetings we enjoyed the landscape and relaxed travelling by train (time for a selfie) to Craiova.

 

A relaxing weekend 2-3 February 2019 in Prinsenhof  Groningen   for reunion with former colleagues

and ofcourse we visit the Groninger museum for another meeting      …………….  CHIHULY

and again a quite other meeting in the Fries museum with Rembrandt and Saskia in Leeuwarden
and strolling through Leeuwarden

 

We travelled to the Nordic Arctic to meet the winter, a real one in January. Lapland, a beautifull environment, an amazing nature, the clain air, the light and the darkness ............ a fairy tale ...........

.

and we were well prepared to go around, but on which way ....

  There are choices; the first choice is not the best one

No there are better choices
A little bit better? Yes, if she agrees to go ………… OK, this is the way ………
The best way is to walk yourself and enjoy untouched nature ….
Which sometimes needs for some physical work
But the views are worthwhile and breathtaking we have to go back.

Time for a quite weekend strolling through Utrecht and visiting Caravaggio and his ‘followers’ in the Central Museum.  5-6 January 2019

A stay in Karel V is recommended!

Our cottage for the summer is in Varvor and ready now (August 2018). Varvor de Sus is a countryside village which once was a well-known place for travelers to rest. There is a lot of wildlife, also on our land. Now there are new plans to make a national park of its surroundings. We started to create our own paradise. Hop flourishes luxuriantly and the geese are on their way to the river. Also we created a maze.

 

Preparing for the wedding on 31 July 2016 as Nasa and Nasul - in the Romanian tradition the spiritual parents of a new couple, in case Gabi and Tatiana - prepared to visit the townhall and later redressed the church..

Quite an experience travelling through Cuba. Partly, it is a journey back to the past.

Saying ‘Old Havana’ is picturesque is an understatement. But how to live there?


 
Of course, you have to walk along ‘Malecon’ but it does not always look peacefully
and to visit ‘Castillo del Morro’ (Les Organos in a Bond movie).


The health care system is still unique and a fascinating example for the future. The Netherlands could learn from studying the health care system and care for the old.



 


The beautiful natural environment (out of the cities) of Cuba is pure and relaxing,



Not only times fly …

And with a mojito it looks different again,
time for a nice diner

Picturesque, but restoration and maintenance is needed everywhere.


Time surely runs fast, so time to leave ….

 

 

Guess who will appear on twitter soon and which age on 26 December 2013?
