The house we rented during our vacation last week was right next to the national park Hoge Veluwe. Although the weather wasn't very good I did take a small cycling trip through the park and took my camera.
During my vacation last week we visited Burgers' Zoo in Arnhem, The Netherlands. Along with the usual animals it has several biodomes with different enviroments: Desert, jungle and underwater. They also have a new mangrove section, but that won't open until later this month.
The Passiflorahoeve is a butterfly garden in Harskamp, The Netherlands. Last week I went there and of course took some photos.
Every year there are several swallow nests atbmy mother's house. One of them fell off this year, but this one is fine. The parents are kept busy by the young ones inside.
The rest of the photos from my day at the zoo in Emmen.
This bear was looking at the people looking at him.
If you had a million Shakespeares, could they write like a monkey?
After a long time not posting anything I have gone through my archives the last couple of days. I'll be posting a lot of photos the next couple of days to catch up.
Early last year I spend a day in the zoo in Emmen. By now the zoo has moved to a different location in Emmen and everything had changed. I haven't visited the new location yet, but I hope they have a similar butterfly garden as the old location.
These are the last pictures from my vacation to Iceland from a few weeks ago. They have nothing in common other than they're from my vacation to Iceland from a few weeks ago.
No vacation to Iceland is complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon, the most famous of all the geothermal spa's in the country. It is located in the middle of a lava field in the south west of Iceland. The water is an azure blue because of the minerals in it. It's on average about 40 degrees C and very nice to relax in.
