Cycling around Hilversum

Tweet Last weekend the Dutch weather stoke back at us. Planned 2 months in advance cycling trip around Hilversum was put in grave danger by a rain. Rain is the only condition, which could make cycling unbearable.¬†Even the nicest parts of ‘t-Gooi looked like this: We’ve made 54 km with 2 beer-stops in the middle […]

Cycling in Germany

Tweet Last weekend we’ve spend cycling in the northern parts of Rhine-Westphalia, an industrial region in the center of Germany. A friend of mine has developed a 165-km 2 days trip through the picturesque fields between Duisburg and Munster. Here are some photos I’ve made: This time I’ve tried to mix German beer and cycling.

Brno, Czech Republic

Tweet The last 3.5 days I’ve spend in a hot hills of Czech Republic. It’s my first time, and actually, it was only work, work, work. No time to sightseeing. The only thing’s I’ve noticed are: It’s a very clean and bright country. Apparently they’ve spend a lot of money, cleaning the centers of old […]

Utrecht in bad weather

Tweet I really have to learn how to make pictures with bad weather. Looks like the whole summer will be clouded here. Today, instead of watching “Burn Notice” and looking at the sun-filled Miami on my monitor, I went to Utrecht for a short walk with some friends. The positive part was completely empty streets. […]

Rotterdam-Hilversum cycling trip

Tweet Last weekend I fell a victim of the weather forecasters. They’ve promised cloudy Saturday and perfect Sunday. The reality was quite the opposite. So, again I spend the whole day cycling and waiting for sun. All the photos from this trip are of very bad quality, sorry about that. Anyway, the this is the […]
