There’s a windmill close to our house where the boys like to go play and have a picnic. But what’s better than one windmill? 19 windmills! We packed some lunch and drove to Kinderdijk. Had a nice walk, a small lunch (with a view) and enjoyed the sunshine. It finally started to feel like spring a little!Continue reading
Day two of our short break. We decided to go to the Loonse and Drunense Duinen (Dunes of Loon and Drunen National Park). Also called the Brabantse Sahara (named after the province it’s in). What an amazing place! One of the largest natural areas in The Netherlands and the largest sand drift area in western Europe. It’s a beautiful sight and a bit surreal. We loved it.Continue reading
After our walk in the woods we felt like getting ice-cream and a coffee! So we made the trip to Heusden. Ready for a small walk and a coffee to go. Unfortunately the coffeehouse wasn’t open but at least the ice cream shop was. We found ourselves a nice little spot in the sun, sat down and enjoyed our ice cream. A perfect way to end this day!Continue reading
A short break for the kids (and us)! School holidays for a week! We decided to take some days off as well. So we could have a nice little getaway and not just sit around the house all day.
But what to do when all the museums, attraction parks, restaurants, cinemas and playgrounds are still closed? Exactly, go outside! We rented the same accommodation again as we did before (last Christmas). A nice lodge in the middle of the forest. Perfect to keep the kids and ourselves entertained for a couple of days! 🙂Continue reading
Not the same as South Beach Florida I imagine. And definitely a different climate. But also a lot closer to us. 🙂 This beach is the peaceful and secret alternative between Scheveningen and Kijkduin. You won’t find many tourists here, but mainly locals.Continue reading
One more day of Christmas! Boxing day had arrived. There wasn’t any rain predicted for the whole day. So we decided to go out, have a walk and get some fresh air. When searching for nearby places to go we stumbled upon Heusden.Continue reading
COVID-19 also put its mark on Christmas. But luckily we were still allowed to go to our small holiday house that we rented for a couple of days. It was nice to get out of the daily routine a little and have a change of scenery. Sometimes baking cupcakes together is all you need during Christmas! Oh, and eating them once they are ready of course. 🙂Continue reading
