North of the Netherlands. Accessible with a boatrip of 90 minutes. The tiny peaceful island Vlieland appears on the horizon. The island that stole my heart two years ago.

She’s an important source of inspiration for me. Grateful for that! I write about her and try to capture her beauty.

She, the island, stirred up my love for islands in general. I feel happy and inspired surrounded by her white grains of sand and blue waves. Surrounded by nearly nothing. A stress-free zone. Grateful for her V I R T U E S :

Sahara of the North

The Vliehors. also called the ‘Sahara of the North’ is my fav spot on the island. A huge sandpit of 21 square kilometers. The eyecatcher is the white small rescue house, also a beachcomber museum and an official wedding location.
