Saturday after lunch we left for the hotel. Since we would be gone for just 1 night I booked a hotel which was 1 hour drive from home. After we checked in, we took Bella and went for a walk. We walked to the nearest town and when we got back we walked through the forest. This took us about 90 minutes. When we returned at the hotel we had a glass of wine in the bar and for dinner we went to the next town where we had a nice dinner at a brasserie.
Sunday morning we had breakfast at the hotel and after that we checked out and drove to a nature park called “De Posbank”. Here we took a walk with Bella. Once again I was reminded that I live in a beautiful country, you just have to find the right places. This forest was so great, paradise for mountain bikers and runners of which we both saw a lot. We do want to go back to this forest because it was really lovely. After the walk we had a cappuccino at a terrace and drove home afterwards.
It was a great idea to go away, even for just one night. It felt like a mini vacation.
Book I’m reading
Tess Gerritsen – Vanish
I finally finished this book. This was the 5th book in the Rizzoli & Isles series and so far the less interesting of the ones I read. But I wanted to finish it before I will read the next one.
Suzanne Collins – The Hunger Games
Movies I’ve seen last week
Wall Street money never sleeps
We have a subscription to a Dutch movie channel and all movies are aired about a year after they were shown in the cinema. That’s why I always watch “old” movies. I have to say I like the first Wall Street with Charlie Sheen more than this one. But the things that happened and what they talked about is kind of what is happening with the economy at the moment, in that way it was an interesting movie.
TV shows I watched last week
Cougar Town, Rizzoli & Isles, Rookie Blue, True Blood, The walking dead, The voice of Holland.
We started with some bread.
Starter a Portobello mushroom stuffed with spinach, cheese and pine nuts.
Main course I had a mixed grill (veal, beef, pork and spare rib) with pepper sauce.
