A day in my life: holiday edition 2011


We left around lunch for a 2-hour drive to our destination. We arrived between 2 and 3 pm. All we did that day was unpack, explore the house we rented and the park we are staying. The house is beautiful, it’s situated at the water with a terrace overlooking the water. The centre of the park is build like an old town, looks very pretty too. We didn’t want to go out for dinner and ate pizza at home.


We had plans to go to a town called Dokkum, about 13K from where we are staying. We had plans to go there by bike because it was supposed to be dry/drizzle a little. But after 15 minutes it started to rain cats and dogs, we were soaking wet within 5 minutes and decided to turn around and go home. We changed clothes and went by car. When we arrived there it was dry and it stayed dry the rest of the day. We walked around a little and had a nice lunch there. In the evening we had dinner at the restaurant in the park.
