King’s day! Which means a lot of people dress up in orange and go out to celebrate the King’s birthday. This year we had a special guest as Adri’s mom just arrived for two weeks. So we took her to Breda and showed her a little bit of the craziness that King’s day can be. This meant visiting ‘The vrijmarkt’ (literally ‘free market’). It’s a nationwide flea market, at which many people sell their used goods. It can’t get more Dutch than that on a King’s Day (although we should probably get some oranges shirts ourselves as well next time)!
A cold and rainy day. Not the best time to go out and celebrate King’s Day. But we gave it a shot anyway. Normally people dress up in orange and go crazy on the 27th of April. But due to the bad weather it took a while before the orange madness started (pretty much until we were leaving actually).
