it’s a Captains Life - One heart, two countries


This is the mainpage of the Captains bLOG, my humble and honest blog about things that I personally find either entertaining, interesting or worth sharing. Occationally, the blog also includes updates on my life, events, thoughts and other (photographic) moments and memories. As my heart belongs to two countries, a natural part of this bLOG will naturally be about those two countries also. 

Content: Photography, general category and personal interest

You might not agree to all my opinions, and that’s not supposed to be the idea either - the world is a great place with as many opinions as there are people. As long as you respect my opinion, I will also respect your opinion. 

THANK YOU for commenting, sharing and reading. Without your interest, there would be naturally no reason for me to spend time on this blog. Thank you!
