New pics

Just before her pregnancy leave the lovely Hanke Arkenbout did a photoshoot with me for my new book. She and I went to the beautiful Kralingenbos in Rotterdam. I had never been there before, but it’s close to where she lives and I’d always wanted to go there, it’s a famous city park. Hanke is […]
