Staycation Time

I’m off on a small break. Not to Norway as planned, but a few days of hiking on the Dutch Pieterpad-trail. But first a day of water-sport-fun. Making the most of this forced staycation 😉

I’m keeping my Esty shop open, but won’t start shipping again until Monday. See you later!⁠

Happy King’s Day!

2018 Kings Day Mangomini

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including yourself) in orange!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods in here are (from top to bottom):  tompoes (a very sweet pastry, with an orange layer especially for King’s Day), drop (salty liquorice), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup) and hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast).

The book is: The Cather in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Orange baby!

September so far: sunshine,  some orange in my Dutch wardrobe, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra on repeat and finally reading The Catcher in the Rye.

 

Orange fever!
