Hiking in South Limburg

This past weekend the weather was looking ridiculously good (as in, 24 degrees!) so we went on a hike with Michiel’s parents in the southern area of the province of Limburg. [We were in a town called Schin op Geul. If you look here on the map page, it is down near Maastricht] The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and there were green hills and trees as far as the eye could see. Spring has definitely sprung in the Netherlands. Many people have already planted their flower gardens outside! This is very early, considering that Canadians don’t do much planting until near the end of May.

Anyway, we had a great time enjoying nature. Here are some pictures:

Lovely scenery

Trees in the distance

More moo.

And, last but not least, a CASTLE!!!

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    Nice arty photos…..magazine worthy, I would say.
    Wouldn’t the “trees in the distance” scene make a great painting?

    • Thank you! :)
      Yes, I do favour the trees in the distance one. It turned out preeeeetty cool. Believe it or not, I took all these photos (and actually, most of the photos on this blog so far) with my iPhone’s camera!
