Autumn in Haarlem


“Never say there is nothing beautiful left in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.”

    What a beautiful shot. I was in Haarlem 5 years ago, in early June, and it was lovely then, but this makes me really want to visit in autumn!

    Not a bad way to spend the day. Is there anything better than fall?

    We have spent our first year away from Canada, and actually living in Haarlem, Netherlands. We come back to your blogs from a few years ago about this place because we love your travels here, and it’s fun to see our new humble home town on your site πŸ™‚
