If you’ve never been to Queen’s Day in the Netherlands, I definitely recommend it – I’ve never seen a whole city (let alone country!) party like that, or seen so much orange all in one place! This year was particularly special, as the Queen handed the crown over to her son – making this the last ‘Queen’s Day’ before it officially becomes King’s Day next year.
The canals were clogged with boats, the streets clogged with parties, with food & drink stalls everywhere and people dancing, getting crazy, and generally having an awesome time.. love it!
Hope you enjoy the pics
I was lucky enough to spend a lovely weekend in Rotterdam, where I was visiting a friend of mine. I love being introduced to new places through friends, as they always show me the best local cafes, markets, bars, areas, shops, or sites.. it’s the best way to get to know the ‘real’ city from a local perspective, rather than as just another tourist!
The highlight – besides waking up to the smell of pancakes, so spoiled! – was the incredible Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Kunsthal Museum. If you’re into fashion, I would definitely recommend checking it out – amazing pieces from his lifetime of work, and all displayed so well!
Hope you all have had a good start to the week – and if you’re in Holland as I am right now, happy Queen’s / King’s Day!
Here are the final photos from Belgium! A blue wall, white leopard coat, patches of brilliant sun, castles, boat rides on the canal, and of course – more waffles, hehe. Man I’m such a tourist.. but whatever, it’s fun So sad that it already feels like so long ago!
Hope you enjoy, and happy weekend to you all!
