Short holiday in Noordwijk and Leiden

Well once in a while we need a rest or a time out. For me the Christmas period was one of those periods. Even though I like the sphere of Christmas with the Christmas tree, the lights everywhere, the festive atmosphere, I really wanted to be away for a few days to relax and enjoy myself somewhere else. Together with a friend I went for a short holiday to Noordwijk and Leiden. Even though it was cold and windy, it was a pleasant stay. Noordwijk is a little town at the coast of the North Sea in the province Zuid-Holland. The first day was a rainy day so we went to a beachclub drinking hot chocolate.

Leiden

The next day was a sunny day but cold. Leiden is a place I wanted to visit for a long time. To stroll around in the streets of the center was very nice. I really liked the old buildings, beautiful houses, the canals, the windmills. The Royal Museum of Antiquities is very interesting and really worth a visit. Even though you didn’t study history like I did.

Cala d’hort and other beaches

Es Vedra _Cala d’hort

One of the things that was on my bucket list was to see Es Vedra. The magical rock inside the Mediteranean See. I drove from one side of the island to the other side. From east to west. It was a nice trip. To go through the mountains. It took about one hour to drive to the place. And the view was just fantastic!

Cala Nova

Thereafter I went to another beach called Cala Nova. It’s in the east of Ibiza and the sea was more rough because it was very windy on that day. The wind made nice waves. A real surfers paradise.

 

Ibiza Part 2

Dalt Villa (Eivissa)

There are not much places I like to visit twice for a holiday but Ibiza is one of those places I want to visit over and over again. I can’t get enough of it. I think you rather love Ibiza or not. Well as you may already guess I’m an Ibiza lover. The relaxed atmosphere, of course the nice weather, beautiful beaches. I love it.

This year I went to a very nice town called Santa Eularia des Riu. It’s in the east of Ibiza. The first day I had a walk around Santa Eularia. The second day I went with public transport to Eivissa. Of course I also went to visit Dalt Villa. A beautiful place to be.

See for your self.

 

Utrecht on a sunny sunday afternoon

A few weeks ago I went to Utrecht, one of my favorite towns. I went with a friend. It was on a sunny sunday afternoon. The weather was hot and. Before we went for some siteseeing we were sitting on a terrace at a canal in the center enjoying the sun. As we were drinking coffee we were watching the boats passing us by with happy peoples on it. And one of our thoughts was how it would be if we could also be on a boat on a canal. Well, that’s our plan next time… Enjoy watching the pictures.
