Vilnius

This is the end of my mini series about Vilnius; it’s the day of departure for my brother-in-law. No more new pictures of street art in Vilnius to come. For me it has been a great pleasure to receive his daily messages with the pictures of Vilnius attached. And as there are a lot of […]

Vilnius

My brother-in-law keeps on sending me pictures of his walks in Vilnius and I change the colour of my face from a pale green to a darker green with hectic spots. I’m green with envy and if he continues this way, I soon will have foam at my mouth. Yesterday I have started to search […]

5 days of Amsterdam – Part III

I’ve always been fascinated by Amsterdam. Besides the typical touristic stereotypes like tulips, cheese and coffee-shops, for me it is more it’s history, that dates back to the 13th century. Catching fish, initially the most important source of income, soon gave way to trade.

5 days of Amsterdam – Part II

May I had imagined quite differently! Isn’t this month called the merry month of May? And why is it only so dark? And so damn cold? My plans for the second day were made anyway, but I must confess, motivation was a problem that morning. Even I had heard about the old NDSM shipyard, and […]

5 days of Amsterdam – Part I

Amsterdam and street art – what is the best method to approach that topic? Asking www who knows it all, there are a lot of images and recommandations about hot spots, galleries, museums, legal walls and murals of famous names of the international street art scene.
