Fancy Friday linkup.

At the bottom of this post you can join the Fancy Friday linkup and don’t forget to read the Styled By………..page. I am curious about your story!

Hoge Veluwe National Park.

Hello all. Today is a different post as usual. I don’t think the pictures evoke the same atmosphere with you as with me, but I wanted to share this anyway. Last Sunday Gerben and I went to the Hoge Veluwe, we do this more often when the weather is nice. The Hoge Veluwe is a National Park with a beautiful combination of art, architecture and nature. You should really take a look at their site to see what is going on there. For my foreign readers it may not be as interesting, but who knows, if you ever go visit the Netherlands you have to visit it. I will even guide you well! I will briefly tell some more. The Hoge Veluwe is gigantic( for Dutch standards that is) and you can see a lot of wildlife if you’re lucky. We have seen, a few weeks ago, a group of rutting deer. There is the Kröller-Müller museum which houses the second largest Van Gogh collection in the world. There is a sculpture garden and you can grap a bike to cycle around the park. They have hundreds of white bikes. And you can visit the residence of the couple Kröller-Müller designed by Berlage.

Enjoy an autumn “walk”.

So we went “walking”. And by walking I mean that Gerben is walking and I am in the wheelchair. We bought the wheelchair last year, and the first few times I hated it. I was ashamed and felt watched. I also did not have these oxygen glasses and still had the tube over my face, which made things even more worse. Meanwhile, I feel a lot more confident with these glasses and I can now, sitting in the wheelchair, really enjoy a”walk” without having pain in my body, being out of breath, getting terribly tired. I really enjoy it now and Gerben doesn’t mind to push. And it was such a beautiful sunny autumn day. And I was very grateful….

This is where I link up!

    Nancy, I am so glad you can enjoy getting outdoors. You are beautiful and can be proud that you are still living a full and fun life regardless of your limitations. It looks like a beautiful place to take a walk. Being in a place like that is absolutely therapeutic. Thanks for sharing and for hosting the link up. – Amy

    Love all those fall colors! We love exploring area parks and botanical gardens on the weekends. We just moved back to Michigan, and there are so many state parks and recreation areas here. I hope we knock a few off our list before it gets too cold. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos of your outing!

    thanks for sharing this beautiful park! Lucky you to have the change of seasons – it always looks basically the same here in California. I’m sorry to hear you’re not enjoying the wheelchair and I hope you feel better, but at least you had a lovely time at the park anyway 🙂 It’s good you’re making the best of things . Wishing you well!

    • November 4, 2016 / 9:12 pm

    Well, it only took a couple of gentle reminders from you, dearest Nancy – I actually made it to your linkup this week!! Hurray!! Here in Canada, National Parks are all about “roughing it” in the wilderness; so it’s very interesting to see that Hoge Veluwe actually boasts a sculpture garden…and even a museum!! Definitely more my style than hiking and camping!! 🙂 P.S. I’m sorry that your health issues are serious enough to (sometimes?) require a wheelchair; but I’m glad to know that it hasn’t stopped you from enjoying the “great outdoors!!”


    • November 5, 2016 / 10:29 am

      Yes yes yes!! Haha, Thank you Monica, you know I appreciate it! I need a weelchair when we have to walk far or long but it s oké, I am Happy that I don t need it all the time(yet) This park is also so wonderful because everyone is doing there thing, people are walking there dogs, ride horses, cycle, picknicking, etc. It s really very nice! Have a great weekend!

    • November 5, 2016 / 10:29 am

      Which outfit dear…

  12. November 6, 2016 / 5:35 pm

    Finally made it back here! 🙂

    That’s a beautiful park and a gorgeous walk. I’m so glad that you are more comfortable being in the wheelchair and are able to enjoy outings!

    Hope you had a nice weekend!

      I think because it s obviously then that the bikes belong to the Park and they are easy to find! There are some places were you can grab one or leave one , but people stall them everywere!

  14. November 7, 2016 / 7:24 am

    Oh my goodness, how beautiful! I hope to visit the Netherlands someday. Hope you had a great weekend!

    • November 7, 2016 / 10:02 am

      Thank you! When you do I ll show you the Park!

    These pictures are beautiful and so inviting. Theres’s nothing like a good walk in a park to clear the mind and connect with Mother nature.

    xo, Jackie

    • November 7, 2016 / 10:03 am
