Hi everyone, I am back again! Back from vacation, back from two weeks of enjoying and relaxing, back from our holiday in The Netherlands. Recovering from the stress that life brings these days. Unfortunately we couldn’t go to our beloved England, but we have discovered some beautiful places in our own country. And we had gorgeous weather, which makes all the difference of course!
Holiday in The Netherlands
The first week of our holiday in The Netherlands, we went to Drenthe. Drenthe is very green and very diverse. Lots of moors and forest. And full of characteristic villages where occasionally life seems to stand still. Which is sometimes very nice. We stayed in a small hotel and cycled a lot. I just got my new bike so I had to get used to the saddle! Gosh, I’ve had some saddle pain! But it was very beautiful and we enjoyed delicious meals in the hotel, something we consider not unimportant.
Back home we shopped in Arnhem a bit, I found the perfect gold colored top, vintage by Clio! We invited friends over for a bbq and read in the garden, enjoying the sun.
The second week we went to Texel for a few days, a Wadden island. Of course always wonderful to be on an island, you get a bit of that England feeling.(not really, nothing beats the UK in my eyes) But how busy it was! We’re not quite used to that yet. Didn’t like that part at all. And Dutch people are just very rude, sometimes I feel ashamed to be Dutch. But we also cycled here a lot, through the dunes. That is so beautiful, especially the stretches along the sea. And we did a seal tour. Wonderful to see them in their natural habitat. Also here we had a small cozy hotel. Holiday in The Netherlands isn’t that bad.
What a joy to be out in nature
Back at home we still had a few days of holiday. We went out for dinner, invited my father for dinner, invited my in laws for cake( it was my birthday the 31st) and had a bbq at our friends. And enjoyed the warm weather. The days we were away we had wonderful weather and on Texel we had even 27 degrees Celcius, 80 F. But on all that joy comes to an end and normal life has started again. Of course it’s super busy straight away, weird is that how fast you seem to forget you even had some time off.
Today I have something very exciting, but I can’t say anything about that yet, haha that’s helpful! But above all, Ihave to get rid of a lot of administration work and update the blog. By the time it’s the weekend again, I hope I’ll be up and running again!
Have a nice week everyone!
