It is full of hidden treasures that you probably never get to see as a tourist: wonderful shops, amazing food, great museums and galleries, beautiful architecture, a forest (yes, a whole forest), and so much more... And if that doesn't convince you, well, get on a train and you could be in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne or, yes, London in no more than a couple of hours... Which other city can you say that about?

Out-takes from a Sunny Weekend

Last weekend was all about Amélie dancing. But in between the dance steps, I also managed to spend quite a lot of time sitting on our balcony with my wonderful boy, smelling his sweet, sun-warmed skin.He really did spend most of the weekend without any clothes on. It was just that kind of weather. In […]
