Praia do Carvoeiro – Faro District

Carvoeiro is a small village in the Algarve region, Portugal. Surrounded by high cliffs the beautiful sandy beach is perfectly sheltered against wind. So this place is popular amongst tourists who want to spend the winter here. But I can imagine that in summer the beach will be full too.

Krifi Ammos at Skiathos

At Skiathos, a very beautiful Island at the Sporades, Greece, you can find a lot of beautiful beaches. But Krifi Ammos, called the “Hidden Beach”, certainly is a special beach. It is a rather small beach in a small bay. And you have to walk a little bit to get there, so it is rather quiet, especially off season.

Gouvernement Maastricht

In this building, functioning as the Province Hall of the Dutch province Limburg) in Maastricht at the Maas reside the Provinciale Staten (parliament of the province Limburg) and the Gedeputeerde Staten (Government of the province Limburg). The chairman is called Gouverneur, but only in the province Limburg. His official title is the King’s Commissioner.

This picture was taken during the blue hour and shows this interesting building with the river Maas in the foreground. The illumination reflects in the Maas beautifully giving some extra colour and light.

Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht

The Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht is a museum of fine art. It is housed in a building from the Architect Aldo Rossi. It is considered a landmark of Maastricht.

This picture shows the Bonnefantenmuseum at night, taken from the other side of the Maas, making the river Maas a nice foreground for the building in this picture, with reflections from the lights on the other side.

Endless beach of Evia (Euboea)

This phenomenal beach is situated on the northern part of the island Euboea, Greece. It is the second largest island of Greece. This beach starts to the south of Limni, goes around Katounia (where you can find a tavern) and stretches out for some kilometers. It is a very nice walk along the beach and as there are almost no tourists, you can enjoy tranquillity anywhere you like.
