Our holiday in May is over! I feel so sad, we had such a fantastic relaxed time. Finally time to spend together and enjoy life. Well, we always enjoy life, it was more to have time with each other. We went to Rye on Tuesday the 21st. We had decided to go to the b&b instead of a holiday park because we couldn’t leave earlier. And later wasn’t a option. Because we had two weeks vacation and we love to spend the second week at home and have day trips.
We have spend many holidays at this b&b, and Bert and Carol are such lovely people. And Rye is a fantastic picturesque village with fabulous pubs! We went there last February too!
What did we do in our holiday in May.
We cycled for the first time in the UK. We had to get used to it a bit in the beginning, because you do not have the beautiful bike paths as in the Netherlands. But it was wonderful to do and I am sure we will do that more often. If you also want to cycle once in the Rye area, I advise you to rent the bikes at Rye Bay E-bikes. (not sponsored) Incredibly nice couple and they have nice routes! We cycled past Sir Paul McCartney’s recording studio!
We spent two days in Brighton and Hastings. Just a little shopping, a nice walk on the pier and sit on the beach and of course eating good food.
Saturday’s we went to Leeds castle where that weekend was a medieval festival. Very nice and cozy.
Back in the Netherlands we went to the open air museum. Definitely recommended if you are in the Arnhem area. We cycled for two days and had lunch on the way. And we went to the national park, nice to be out in nature! On Saturday we went to a food truck, theater festival.
It was a relaxing holiday and I really hope we can keep that relaxed vibe for a while. But I don’t think we will! You quickly fall back into being busy etc. etc. But in 3 months we will have vacation again and next weekend it is Pinkpop!
Wonderful to see you holiday pictures. You had a nice time and enjoy your holiday so much. I would like to see a medieval festival in U.K. too. You were at the right time at the right place. If we want to visite Leeds castle in 2016 we had no luck, no dogs allowed and we travel with our Luna.
Oh that is a shame. I hope you get to visit it once!
I looked up Rye and the B&B, both look so inviting. I can imagine why you have spent many holidays there and look back with fond memories. I was very happy to read that you went biking twice. As for the return to the normal routine. Let me quote Shakespeare for you: “If all the year were playing holidays; To sport would be as tedious as to work.” Love, Lieske
Haha, well he got that right! Rye is a very inviting village. It’s beautiful and we always see something new!
I love that you went cycling, Nancy….how fun!!
You look so happy in these photos. It goes to show how it’s fabulous to get away!
It was very relaxing, but I also feel at home in the UK>
Oh dat ziet er weer heerlijk uit Nancy, ik zie een uitgeruste jij op deze foto’s.
Dat Middeleeuwse spektakel zou ook iets voor mij zijn, hou wel van een stukje historie.
Ja inderdaad, uitgerust! Was heel erg leuk, ook veel mensen in klederdracht. Volgens mij zijn er in het zuiden ook vaak Castle festen toch?
Time really does fly when you’re on holiday, doesn’t it? Seeing your photos of Rye, Brighton and Hasting is putting me in holiday mood. And how fantastic that there was a medieval festival when you visited Leeds Castle. It’s good to have some time off in your own country as well. I must try croquettes on bread, which I’ve never had 😉 xxx
Yes it was wonderful! You never tried it?Don’t they have that in Belgium?
What a fun holiday!! Lovely photos!

Oh that would be so lovely, I’ll be there again end of August.
Glad you had a lovely vacation, Nancy. It looks like it was a lot of fun! – Amy
It was, thanks Amy!
Always love seeing your holiday pics and hearing about your visits to England! Great that you tried cycling. I wish we had the cycle paths you have in the Netherlands! Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday.
Yes I wish that too!But it was great to do as you see so much more!
It looks like you had an amazing holiday, Nancy! Just looking at your photos makes me want to go to England! But I have to wait until November / December.
That sounds like a good time to go! Everything in Christmas sphere!
What a fun vacation, lots of good times and food! Yum! We did a bicycle tour when in Chicago a few years ago and it was such a unique way to see the city and was a lot of fun! I was really tired afterwards! Sadly, I haven’t been on a bike since! I need to change that.
We cycle a lot here in the Netherlands. We are of course a small country so it’s easier.
I always enjoy seeing your vacation pictures. Looks like you had a good time and I used tolove to bike. a great way to see places. Yummy food too!
thanks for linking!
Thank you very much Jess! Enjoy your weekend!
There are some lovely photos here Nancy and some good tips on places to visit when I return to Brighton way xx
Isn’t Brighton just so lovely! But Rye is too, have you ever been there?
Cycling it has got to be…those paths in the NL are most likely the best….and it would not have been authentic if yoz had’t eaten a pannekoken 🙂
I lierally have them every day…adficted .. hope those vibes will stay with you Nancy…thanks for sharing…kusjie Sabina
Okay, I LOVE fish and chips and believe it or not it is one of the things I am most looking forward to having them when we visit in the fall!!! Love that y’all cycled!
Hahaha, but make sure you buy it near the see and eat it on the beach! That way it tastes so much better! Haha.
Oh it looks and sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, so relaxing! 🙂
