Holiday finally arrived! Unfortunately when writing this blog post it already ended again and we’re back to business as usual. Hungary was great and we fully enjoyed our time as a family there. We went by car and arranged a sleepover with friends in Vienna. It had been 6 years since our last visit to Vienna. So we were excited to visit the city again and more importantly catch up with our friends which we also hadn’t seen for a while.
It’s never a bad thing to spend your Sunday in the Efteling. Especially if it turns out the park isn’t that busy after all. Walking through the fairy tale forest and catching some sunshine (finally). It’s good to get out of the house sometimes. 🙂
Texel is the largest and most populated of the ‘Waddeneilanden’ (Frisian islands). I always wanted to visit at least one of the islands but somehow never got to it. And Adri already mentioned a couple of times as well that we should visit Texel. So when looking around for places to go for our short baby moon we pretty quickly decided that Texel would be a good option. We booked the hotel and the ferry and before we knew it we set foot on the island last week. It was pretty cold and off season which meant it was pretty calm on the island.
Our second day in Prague. And basically the last day. The third day was more about getting to the airport and flying back home again. But with another full day ahead of us there was still enough time to see some more of the city. The plan was to explore the Castle district. Which can easily fill up half a day. And then there were two more things on my list that I wanted to photograph as well. The dancing house (seen above) and the lightbulb staircase.
A long ‘weekend’ in Prague. This had been on our list for quite a while and finally we managed to get there. We left Sunday morning (2 October) and came back home Tuesday afternoon. Making it more like a two day trip in reality. It’s only a short flight from Eindhoven Airport to Prague Airport. Making it a perfect destination for a short city trip. We flew early in the morning (getting up at 4) and arrived around 8:30 at Prague Airport. Still a full day left to enjoy the city!
Summer break arrived. Halfway September we could finally enjoy our short summer holiday. Spending a week in Hungary to catch up with friends and family and share the news about the pregnancy. This time we flew from Rotterdam Airport to Budapest where Gabi was waiting for us. We got into the plane, made ourselves comfortable and enjoyed the fact we were on the road again!
Flying Friday early morning (July 15th) and returning Sunday night. What a great trip it was! A long weekend with friends and discovering new places. Jim and Barbara welcomed us in their home and we couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay.
