This week school started again, which means the summer holiday is really over. For us, it usually means holiday starts! But not this time. Janet isn’t feeling well enough to travel, so we cancelled our trip to Sicily and Calabria again. We are considering spending a few days at Texel or Terschelling maybe, if we can find an affordable place to stay. Suggestions anyone? If you know somebody who owns a holiday home somewhere at the Wadden islands, or somewhere else , just let us know. [Read more…]
While preparing for our weekend trip to Gdansk in Poland, I read on Wikipedia this city was almost completely destructed during World War 2. Despite all the troubles this country experienced, they started rebuilding Gdansk. And with great result I might add: it’s an amazing city with a beautiful city center. Definately worth visiting, we think, and we’ll tell you all about it soon in another blog. In this blog the quarter Zaspa and it’s murals are in the spotlight!

I just love it, spending a night in a hotel… exploring a new German city. And on top of that, the weather was great. What more could I wish for, right?! Those things give me a real holiday vibe. My friend B from Amsterdam and I visited Münster for a girls weekend away. We met in Enschede, where she parked the car and got into mine, to drive off to the sunset, well to Münster of course. Through Booking we found a hotel within our budget: Hotel City Partner Europe, €69 for 1 night and only a 10 minute walk from the center. After we parked the car and left our luggage in the hotel, it was definately time for lunch. Full speed ahead (just kidding!) on our way to all the good food…
