The South Limburg Slideshow - part five of five

From the 7th to the 14th of April I went on vacation to the South of Limburg, which is the most southern province of The Netherlands. I mostly stayed in the area around a town called Valkenburg. 

As always I walked and explored a lot and as always I took a lot of pictures, be it only with my phone this time, since I did not bring my camera. 

This five part slideshow is an impression of my vacation. I may give a little comment here and there, but mostly I want the pictures to speak for themselves. If you have any questions though, don't hesitate to ask. 

 I hope you will enjoy traveling with me!

In case anyone's interested, this farm was for sale!

It has it's own cute orchard, so there's that. ;-)

The views of this region were just so breathtaking!

This was a beautiful valley next to Schin op Geul, a town about 5 km from Valkenburg.

This church was in Schin op Geul.

This is Schaloen Castle. On its grounds is a lovely little café and restaurant.

This was the last day of my vacation. Here you can see all the essentials one needs for such a trip. ;-)

This was the morning of my departure. I had to get up very early and got to see the sky slowly turn from night to day.

And those are all the photographs I have to offer. Well, you know that's a big fat lie! I made many more of course, but these were my favorites and are also the ones I will print for my travel journal. I will show you the journal when it's really finished which may be a while yet. It's not all that special in itself, but it is a nice tangible reminder of a beautiful trip.

Now I have just one more South Limburg post for you next time, which will not have photographs but a couple of videos, just to give you the full experience, haha! Think of it as a bonus post.

Until then I wish you all a wonderful and artsy day.


  1. Ik moet in herhaling vallen , de foto's zijn weer zo uitnodigend , je hebt echt de gave om een vakantiebestemming aan te prijzen , ik ben al benieuwd naar de filmpjes en uiteraard ook naar je 'travel journal' .

    1. Het travel journal wordt niet zo bijzonder hoor. Gewoon schrijfsels en foto's. Die moet ik overigens nog afdrukken, dus voorlopig is het nog niet klaar. :-)

  2. Thank you SO much for this series of posts! It has been so refreshing and mind-opening to see the different landscapes and buildings and all the things you photograph so well. What a gift!

    1. So glad you enjoyed this series Judith, thank you. :-)

  3. Oh my ... I love the castle especially and so much would love to be able to go in one someday [it's my dream!] I've never seen one in real life but did read that there is one 300 to 400 miles from where I live and one way or the other, I'm going to go and see it someday! :)

    Such a beautiful area that you went to visit!

    1. The Netherlands have plenty of castles to look at. Some you can visit and some you can wander the gardens and some are private. I have stayed inside one that is used as a retreat several times and had the opportunity to stay in a beautiful stylized room. Hope you get the cance to visit one some day.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
