I found out I had imported part of this site into a non visible wordpress.com site some time ago. There the pages that I had lost when I migrated the site once again last year, still intact but not very updated. I’ve imported them here and am happy again.
Oh, yes, the site is protected by Vaultpress and Vaultpress should be able to do a migration seamlessly. That didn’t happen with the last migration unfortubately.
10 Years Happy Hotelier
In June, 2004, I started as a co editor of the Dutch Language blog Weekendhotel and on August 23, 2006 Happy Hotelier was born. So while celebarting 10 years of Happy Hotelier, I may not be allowed to call myself a veteran blogger anymore. Now maybe I should call myself a Jurassic Blogger with 12 years of blogging behind my belt.
Still planning to continue this blog in the foreseeable future.
and off course my other blogs:
Absolutely The Hague,
Art en Route
Wishing all my family, friends, followers and former guests a happy and prosperous 2016.
My friend Joke made this photo with my own camera. Thank you Joke! Most likely to become my new ava.
Photography – Young Taught Done Old
While working on my photo’s, I notice this photo on one of my devices, my IPhone, that someone of my family took of me and my youngest granddaughter. Two years young, she is quite an observant character already. The title came immediately, but seeing this photo again I really have to take up the intention to teach her more seriously to make photo’s.
The photo “Surfing in Scheveningen” gets a lot of views on Flickr. Therefor I’ve used it as my new banner.
It was not easy to take the photo as the wind tried to pull the camera from my hands and was blowing so hard it was almost impossible to take a steady shot. Therefor I’ve had to crank up the iso value a lot to be able to have a decent short shutter time to compensate for my moving camera.
