I know that many of you are disappointed that you are not able to travel the world since this Covid pandemic. But traveling is mostly about discovering new places and sometimes close to your home. This week I made a road trip into The Netherlands. A neighbouring country of Belgium, I discovered new places of this country that I didn’t know. I have already visited The Netherlands especially the cities near the Belgian border and of course Amsterdam. But I had never visited the northern parts of The Netherlands and I was not disappointed. During this trip I also learned a lot about the Dutch food.
Let me show you my road trip during this few days.
I arrived in Amsterdam where I stayed at Pestana Amsterdam Riverside my favorite hotel of the city. During these few days I wanted to learn more about the dutch food. I had a dinner at L’invite a Dutch Restaurant with modern Dutch cuisine North Sea Fish Dutch meat and Dutch biodiversity of vegetables.The perfect place where you can eat local Dutch food.
I left Amsterdam to go to the Friesland part. By the part of North Holland by taking the Afsluitdijk bridge. Getting to Friesland I went to visit the city of Sneek situated in Southwest-Friesland. Frieland is also known for its nature and beautiful beaches.
After staying at Van Der Valk hotel in Sneek I went to Groningen I always wanted to visit this city. The largest city in the north of the Netherlands. I had a dinner at Bistro Loulou.
I went back to Amsterdam I stayed at the Chateauhotel Havixhorst, a beautiful place. The old De Havixhorst manor (built in 1753) a nature lover’s dream base.
I had a dinner at De Groen Lantaarn. The restaurant has been awarded 2 Michelin stars.
