Cycling for the braves!

What a good weather we had. No rain, no wind, just cycling through the countryside on our way to the windmills of Kinderdijk. But first we will cycle to Lekkerkerk (>20km.) for having Dutch food (vette hap). This time no sneaky “jump on the boat” travel back to Rotterdam!!! We only used the boat to…

To the movies!

On the two Fridays we will practise in the TV Studio. You will see the final results on the last Friday in our live show. The link to the live-stream will come later on this site! Will we have the Fenix Food Factory for a nice BBQ with Michael as our waiter? What will be…

Why always Amsterdam?

During the first Thursday, we visit Delft. This is such a wonderful city. Amsterdam has the name but Delft is smaller, cheaper, not that busy and more original. A good reason to visit Delft. We had a nice assignment Delft and after we had the raw fish for lunch (haring) and we did a lot…

Fish, more raw fish

And the winner was; Perla! Multiculti food. We ate the typical Dutch fresh haring. Most participants behaved like they were poisoned. A free drink for the one who ate a haring didn’t make a differents but Perla had no problems and enjoyed the haring. Good girl, if you don’t try you will never know how…

May I have your order, please?

Rotterdam has 173 different nationalities. All these people bring their own culture and cuisine. This is not new. Can you guess why Rotterdam has so many different nationalities? Rotterdam used to be the biggest harbour of the world for quite some time. It is only recently that Shanghai became the biggest harbour of the world. Rotterdam has always received…

Cycling

Do you have a bike? I don’t have one, nor two, but three bikes. I use one to cycle to my work (with a little help from a motor), then I have one to use in the weekends for longer rides, and lastly, one mountainbike. There aren’t any mountains in the Netherlands, but head wind…

A brief but complicated Dutch history lesson

Who ever thinks about Holland thinks of tulips, windmills, cheese, our tolerant drugs policy and loads of water, but wait a second… Is Holland even the correct name? Youtuber CGP Grey made this video which explains it all. Make sure to do your homework properly before visiting us. 😉

Cycle trip to Kinderdijk!

The windmills of Kinderdijk are one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
