“This summer was great – I went to Thailand and did scuba diving and some relaxing on the beach. And next weekend I will go to New York to do some ‘winter’ shopping – I heard they have sale now there.”

Going abroad to the most remote corners of the world, but not been to the village next to your own village. This is the image that spreads nowadays. The first time when I was in the city New York and telling some friends from New York I just had visit the Statue of Liberty, they asked me how it was like. I could not believe they had never been there, while they had lived their whole life in the city. But it is true, having lived in Rotterdam, one of the main ports of the World, for eight years now, and yet I have not seen the chance to visit the harbor.

So, two years ago I decided to do some catching up with visiting countries closer to home and so visit more of Europes’ beauty. First to the Eastern part of Europe, last year Russia and this year Barcelona and the North-Eastern coast of Spain, better known as Costa Brava. You can have a look at some of the pictures @ The Dutch Grapes Gallery.
