At most likely the last day of this year’s summer, with the love of my life.

Architektur in Köln

Cologne, a metropole in the  west of Germany.  A mix between old and new.

Today we visited the ‚crane‘  buildings.  Located at the rhine, a range of new buildings are situaed around the old harbour quay.

Kaiserswerth 2018

What to do when the temperature rises to about 35 degrees in the shadow?  (95F).

What about taking a trip to Kaiserswerth, to a tiny little square in Düsseldorf, where the water is near, the history is plenty and the places to eat and drink are richly in the shadow?

Enjoy the photos

Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf is the capital city of the region NRW (Nordrhein-Westfahlen), in Germany.
It is also the residence from the local government, Der Landtag.
The modern building in what the politicians decide about what happens in our area, is named Landtag.

Close to the Medienhafen,

A wonderful morning with a great photographer and friend as company.  Not bad for a Saturday!

Amsterdam (2018, March

A day to Amsterdam, with Hilde and Markus

If anyone asks me, what for me is the best city in the world, I not need to think long.

CLICK

For me, it is Amsterdam.  Not to live, but worth a visit, every day that you wish.

I don’t try to convice you.

Just watch the photos (nd click to enlarge them)

Boat trip through the canals

 

Follow your dreams
They bubble before your eyes
Grab them

Let the bubble reach your hands
Let it poof
Free the air that is hidden
Let the water splash at your nose

What is holding you back?

Choose your life
Not all bubbles need to be catched
And if one explodes
Before it is time

Then think
That, maybe
Maybe this bubble
Was not meant to be

Find a bubble
They are everywhere
