And here is the second belated blog on my travels to Barcelona of this year.

I’ll be heading to Barcelona again soon and it would be fun to bring this camera with me, but I needed to be sure it works.

Coming home from work the weather was so lovely I just couldn’t not go out for a walk. Grabbed my Fuji Finepix X100 camera, walked out the door and went for a 10km walk.

I just spent a week in New York on vacation. Lots of impressions and a fantastic week. New York is huge, not only in height and very surreal coming from a small town in the Netherlands.

My friend Yvonne Graver got to expose her paintings at the arts&crafts fair Bijzonder Beeckestijn in Velsen-Zuid, but needed a car and driver to get her work there. So I got to go to Bijzonder Beeckestijn too :)
