Yay my parents are in town! They arrived 10 days ago and together with Christian, his dad and I, we explored Normandy, Paris for Mother’s Day (last year my mom flew out last-minute and we spent Mother’s Day in Venice!), Tuscany and Rome. Now I’m enjoying the last weekend with them--Christian and my dad are trying to fix his boat and me, my mom and a bottle of wine are doing some wedding planning :). No complaints here!
I’ll have some pics from our trip soon but here are a few from my parent’s first trip out to visit us. They were actually our very first visitors when we moved to Amsterdam nearly 4 years ago. I finally got to introduce my parents to my favorite city—Amsterdam—and show them the University of Amsterdam, the Grad school I’d be attending and they got to meet Christian’s family in Maastricht. Christian’s dad was so accommodating, he took us for a roadtrip around some WW2 monuments and windmills, we visited Bruges, Belgium, and we hopped over to Trier, Germany, seeing some small German towns and castles along the way.
Looking for a fun weekend trip from Amsterdam? Check out gezellig (that’s cozy in Dutch) Maastricht, cute little Bruges, or do some German castle-hunting to Cochem Castle and Burg Eltz. My parents still talk about how fun that trip was :).
Have a great weekend! We’re enjoying my mom’s home-cookin’ and my dad’s silly jokes…
