Connemara, land of many moods

As we travelled on the bus today from Galway toward Connemara, rows and rows of many layers stone walls and colourful hedgerows reminded me of the romantic Irish landscape in books and films. I realised how this land could get under the skin of so many artists, writers and poets alike.

Historical Dutch homes at Zaanse Schans

Located in Northern Holland, Zaanse Schans was created by architect Jaap Schipper who wanted to promote the industrial history of a typical Zaans residential area so he did so by importing windmills and historical Dutch homes. As soon as I entered Zaanse Schans I was instantly captivated with the quaint and picturesque neighbourhood.

La Roque-Gageac on a frosty morning

The following morning we awoke to a light frost, the frosty whiteness sticking all the loose fallen leaves to the picnic table beside us. We got moving reasonably early, with a plan to jump over to the next beau village, La Roque-Gageac, only a handful of miles along the valley floor. We soon arrived and parked up, before walking first to the banks of the passing river to take in the wonderful reflective view of the town’s collective façade.

Summer on Lake Saimaa

Lake Saimaa is one of the best places to see the unique greens and blues of the Finnish countryside. The colors of summer. You can go swimming or rowing in the lake, before heading to the surrounding forests for some hiking… or maybe even find some wild berries, which are plentiful in all of Finland!
