Italy. This is essentially my travel blog. I discuss some of the wonderful places and monuments I have visited during my travels to Arezzo, Ferrara, Florence, Milan, Padova, Pisa, Ravenna, Rome, Siena, Venice, Vicenza and the various towns of the Friuli, Tuscany and the Veneto.
Portugal. More from my travels. Tales from the country of Fado and Azulejos.
Nederlandse geschiedenis. Two complete series can be found here. One deals with the Binnenhof complex, the seat of the Houses of Parliament, the other with interesting, yet largely forgotten events in Dutch parliamentary history. Other topics covered here are Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the Dutch Rebellion and the Golden Century, the eighteenth and nineteenth century and the twentieth century and the present. In Dutch only.
