Holland is a small country on the northern west coast of Europe, bordered to the north by the Waddenzee, to the east by The Federal Republic Of Germany, to the south by Belgium and to the west by the North Sea. We have a population of approximately 15.5 million people. We have our own Royal Family whose last name is "van Oranje". To see our lovely Queen, Her Royal Majesty Queen Beatrix van Oranje, as she was when she was crowned, click on the portrait image for a link to the full scale photo. If you want to know more about our future King and the rest of the members of our extensive royal family, please click on the portrait of His Royal Highness Prince Willem Alexander van Oranje.
When I was 5 years old, I lived in the then still Dutch colony of Suriname on the north coast of South America. Princess Beatrix, as she still was then, visited the colonies and I had the destinct honor of personally greeting our present Queen, as the picture below shows. This photograph is also the "doorway" to my own PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS GALLERY
taken in Holland, with some typically Dutch scenes for your enjoyment. Just place your cursor on "Princess" Beatrix or me (the little Dutch girl who's giving her flowers) and click..
