Looking for frogs with my dad back in the 90’s

On a hot summer day back in the nineties a blond girl with blue eyes was born. Growing up near the farms, where she could ride her horses, play in the forest, build tree houses and prepare herself to explore the rest of the world, she got older and more curious deciding to leave this place. After 25 years things should have changed a lot at her birthplace, but let’s find out if it actually did change.

As you might figure, that blond blue-eyed girl is me. Two days ago I walked around at my birthplace and took photos. Just to see if my memory would be shocked or not by the possible changes.

A week ago I went to the beach in the Netherlands – yes, we do have a beach here too! The name of the beach is Scheveningen (part of The Hague) and at the end of summer it is a great place to visit if you like rollerskating on the boulevard. There are also some great dining options for afterwards and in particularly there’s one which I find quite special. After the racing with my skates on the paths near the beach I went to the Rodizio restaurant; A Brazilian Grill. And you know I adore Brazil and I love meat!

Street artists from La Rambla move to Eindhoven

What happened here? I think while I walk through the biggest city of Brabant, or as I like to call it: Brabantia. Eindhoven is not the capital of the Netherlands nor the capital of the Dutch province Brabant, but it is the biggest city of Brabant and it sure is vibrant. A lot of art and design makes it a beautiful city, while normally I am not even a big fan of big cities.
