We went for a walk in the countryside yesterday and stumbled upon a castle. That’s something that just doesn’t happen every day back home. Unfortunately, since I wasn’t expecting to run into a castle, I didn’t have my camera and this video does it much more justice than I could have, anyway.
Yesterday we went to Amsterdam and finally got to go to the historical and amazingly beautiful Tuschinski Cinema. This theatre is for sure the most beautiful cinema I have ever been to and it was hard to not fall flat on my face as I walked around ogling the beautiful interior. It has an amazing history, that survived the nazis, despite the fact that the owner did not, having been killed in the concentration camps.
We saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and it was the perfect environment to watch a film from one of my favourite directors. The beautiful set design of the Grand Budapest Hotel wove seemingly seamless with the interior of the theatre and it felt as though I was being pulled between both worlds at the same time. Please go visit this theatre when you are in Amsterdam.

We are going to Utrecht today for the first time, so I should have lots of lovely photos for you at some point, later on. In the meantime: been watching this gals videos lately. She is exploring the raw food journey, and getting in shape for a trip to Everest Base Camp, which she and her husband are documenting for a documentary. Nice message here…
Yesterday we went to Elswout which is within (long) walking distance from where we are staying, in Holland. Back in the day this used to be a summer property for the rich. Now it is parkland which mystical pathways that lead you around into what appears to be Middle Earth. Moss and bridges and trees. So beautiful.
