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.
Starting of the new year with some photos of last year! On Boxing day we all decided to go out and get some fresh air. A nice walk along the beach while taking some photos and trying to survive that ice cold wind!
Last month Adri’s brother and his family came to visit us for 5 days. From June 22 to 26 we showed them a little bit of what Holland has to offer.
May 15, 2016. Our son was spending the night at my sister’s place for the weekend while we were spending some time in Amsterdam.
May 7. Perfect weather for another visit to the Efteling. This time my mom and dad came along to join the party. And it wasn’t busy at all. A perfect day to be out in the park!
4 days of Jazz throughout the City. A yearly festival that we always like to visit whenever we have the chance. This year the weather was extremely nice and many people had a day off. The first day of the Breda Jazz Festival (5th of May) was also Ascension Day and Liberation Day.
The first of May! A bright and sunny day when we decided to visit Rotterdam. Honestly Rotterdam has never been one of my favorite cities but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit every now and then. With it’s modern architecture, port and city life there is enough to shoot. Rotterdam is the 2nd largest city of the Netherlands and has one of the biggest ports in the world (biggest of Europe). We only covered a small part that day, so we’ll be back for another round one of these days.
