We travelled through Belgium many times on our way to South Europe and we visited Antwerp many times, however we never spend time and efforts to make photos in Belgium. Since we have more time nowadays and we live so close to Belgium we have planned to make frequent visits to, in particular the beautiful cities, in Flanders, e.g. Antwerp, Brugge, Gent and Mechelen. An ongoing project which will last for some time.
In May 2017 we travelled for the first time with our camper to Denmark and visited Jutland. As reference we followed the Margriet (daisy) route, in Danish the Margueritruten. Denmark is a very beautiful country and has all ingredients that we so much like: the sea, the coast, islands, nice rural areas, friendly people and space to breath and travel. We went back in 2018 and now followed the southern part of the route. We have been to the islands Ærø, Funen, Langeland, Lolland, Falster, Møn and Sjælland. The total length of the Margriet route is 3.700 km’s and we have not yet finished the complete route.
In 2016 we bought a camper bus and the first trips we made were to Bretagne and later to the Provence and Languedoc in France. When we were young(er) we have spent many holidays in France, in the Auvergne and Normandy and Bretagne. Also for our work we have visited Paris, Lyon and Marseille. We have only good memories of that time. Regretfully not too many photos, since life was not digital then.
Bretagne was a revisiting tour for us, whereas the Provence and Languesdoc were new. The amount of photos are limited, since we also had to take care of our two dogs during these travels and they are a bit “high maintenance” sometimes.
Greece is special for us. We lived in Greece from 1993 – 1999. We lived in Kifisia, a suburb of Athens. During the six years that we lived in Greece we fell in love with the country. The culture, the people, the food and Greek music made our stay an unforgettable experience. We only have a few photos of that period in our Greek folder. Scanning is an issue. Most photos are from visits we made after 1999. In September and October 2017 we have been travelling with our camper on Greece’s mainland.
Over the years we have spent holidays in Spain and Portugal. Also for business we visited places like Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Cordoba and Lisbon. However photography was not always on our radar. In Portugal we however started with medium format photography, with the Mamya 645. The photos in Andalusia have been taken with our first digital camera, the Olympus E1 with limited mega pixels. The photos of the Alentejo region in Portugal are coming close to our present photography.
Italy is like Greece very special for us. We lived in Italy from 1999-2005 and from 2010-2012. We lived in a small community, Salvano, which belongs to Palazzago a village in the vicinity of Bergamo. In 2015 we stayed also for two months in Lecce. Living and working in Italy was an unforgettable experience. Italy is so rich from a cultural point of view. The Italian people have been so nice to us. And what should we say about Italian food? From the period 1999-2005 we do not have many photos. We filmed at that time and we still have some scanning to do of our old negative films.
Nederland, our home country. Most of the photos are taken after having spent 14 years abroad, in Greece and Italy. We live with our two dogs in the province of Zeeland. A very quiet place to live. Surrounded by the sea. We feel very much at home here and we have a lovely old house with a big garden.
We have started to work on a few series of Dutch cities. As you may notice Amsterdam is still missing, but is of course on the agenda.
Regretfully only one gallery of UK. We hope that one day we are brave enough to travel with our camper through Britain. Brave to drive on the wrong side of the road.
In the galleries in this folder, you will find only a limited number of photos. Adriaan was visiting many countries for business, regretfully there was only limited time for making photographs. It is a pity not to have made more photos in Middle East, US, India and China.
In this folder we would like to publish galleries that will focus on specific topics. We will on a regular basis update the galleries and add new galleries.
