Just back from a short trip with my mother to Leer, Germany. Only one hour by train from the city of Groningen it is my favourite place to travel to in the weeks before Christmas. The Christmas market in the main shopping street is not really interesting to me or my mother, but the Altstadt […]
Honestly I had no idea that very close to the borg (a former stronghold or villa in the province of Groningen) that I was going to visit today, there was another one. It turns out Borg Rusthoven in Wirdum is the smallest of the 16 borgen in the Province of Groningen. I only found out […]
In some places the Christmas fun has already started. In the last days several Christmas fairs or markets and other Christmas events passed on social media.

When going through my articles of the past months, I noticed I have forgotten to tell you about the wonderful exhibition “Mary & Kronprinsesserne” (Mary & the Crown Princesses) that can be visited at the Koldinghus in Kolding, Denmark, until 30 December 2022. The exhibition was opened by Crown Princess Mary herself, accompanied by Crown […]
