Diana & her garden – Kensington Palace

Photos: Courtesy of Historic Royal Palaces If travelling would be easier nowadays, there is one place I would love to go. I have been in London several times, but there is still something new to discover. I visited Kensington Palace only two years ago, but the recent exhibition and the new statue would have been […]

The Princessehof of Maria Louise (2)

My first museum visits after the start of the covid-19 crisis were happily a good experience. While the terraces and streets in the city centre of Leeuwarden, The Netherlands, in the afternoon were too packed to my liking – it was great weather – I went off to see two museums, and afterwards had a […]

The building was once the city […]
