Down south in the Netherlands: a city trip to Maastricht

Traditional pie, books and a fire brigade On our first morning we decided to go for breakfast at De Bisschopsmolen, the first 100% spelt bakery in the Netherlands.

7 steden in 7 dagen – Op rondreis door Spanje

Spanje doorkruisen in een rondreis van zeven dagen dat doen we wel even, dachten we. En eerlijk? Zo simpel was het ook. Zelfs met een dreumes van vijf. Onze eerste vakantie met zijn drieën, waarin we de kustlijn van Spanje zijn afgereden met een Fiat 500 cabrio. Niet dat dat er iets toe doet, maar wel als je je bedenkt …
