Notice! Because I’m reformatting my photos, this post is without pictures at the moment.
My mum and I went for a lovely bike ride across the Hoge Veluwe to Paleis ‘t Loo yesterday. The beautiful baroque building was built between 1684 and 1686 for stadtholder-king William III and Mary II of England. Its gardens were inspired by those at Versailles and have been recently renovated. It was lovely to walk around and see Mary’s shell cave, the tree tunnel, the blossoming orange trees, the clouds of sweet-smelling azalea’s in the park, the carp as big as my arm, the bathing house, and the lavish rooms decorated with the bits and bobs of lots of different rulers.
