Den Haag

I just spent a week in Holland with my family. Our first stop was The Hague – or Den Haag as I prefer – where we rented a beach house near a large nature reserve. Not many people know that Den Haag is a great place for a beach holiday but it is! The weather was a bit chilly when we visited but that was fine – instead of swimming in the sea and barbecuing we spent our days cycling around the beautiful dunes and visiting the surf style beach restaurants nearby.

Remains

Two years ago me and my man bought an old van, made it into our contemporary home and traveled across Finland and up to the Arctic Ocean with our two dogs.

I have lots of photos from our trip – and I may come back to this – but one is my favourite. It was taken on a very small island somewhere near Alta where there were no people, just a herd of reindeers and us.

I took the photo but by man spotted it first; remains of a little reindeer calf resting on a bed of moss and flora.
