South Limburg in moving pictures

Over the past two weeks I have pretty much overwhelmed you with photographs from my vacation to South Limburg and mostly the area around Valkenburg where I was staying.

It just so happens that I also recorded a couple of videos. No many mind you, only three,  but I thought it might be nice for you to see and hear what the place is like in moving pictures. Please do keep in mind Blogger downsizes videos, so watching them full screen is not a good idea. :-)

The first one I took in an area called Gerendal, which is to the east of the town. I had just walked a rather steep hill (it doesn't even look al that steep, but trust me, it took some effort), so there's some of my heavy breathing in it as well. Although I must say it sounds a bit worse than it was, I think my mouth was a bit too close to the microphone. :-)

The second video was taken on the north side of Valkenburg, overlooking the farmland and the town itself in the distance.

The last one I took on the morning of my departure, very early while the sun was not even up yet, but the birds were. I wanted to keep a memory of all that birdsong. So...not much to see, but lots to hear!

Well, I hope your enjoyed looking and listening to the beautiful landscape that is the south of my country. I'm going to stop talking about it now, least until I finish the travel journal, and move on to the artsy stuff again. But that's for next post!

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

PS As far as I know, those of you who get my blogposts in their mailbox won't be able to watch the videos unless you actually visit the site. Sorry about the inconvenience.
