Finally my 34th wedding

There was more than one reason that my 34th royal wedding in more than twenty years time was even more exciting than before. I can’t even remember that there has ever been such a huge gap between two weddings. There were also years in which I enjoyed seeing more than one wedding. My full list […]

What to see in Royal Copenhagen?

The Countries I Have Visited

I love travelling, but I haven’t really visited many countries and have never been outside Europe (if you don’t count in the Asian part of Turkey, just across the Bosporus). In some countries I’ve hardly seen anything, while in other countries I have been in a lot of places. There is still so much to […]

Travelling in Royal Style

On 4 October 2017 at the Spoorwegmuseum (Railway Museum) in Utrecht, The Netherlands, the exhibition “Vorstelijk Reizen” (Travelling in Royal Style) opened its doors. It is not clear to me how long it will be there, although some places say 2025. Pieces from the collection of the museum show the long history of royals travelling […]
