{Weekend Snaps}

Some iPhone snaps from our glorious four-day weekend. Captions below!
 1 
We ventured over to Ijburg to check out these floating houses I'm obsessed with. Then we stopped in to Espressofabriek for some muffins, lattes & magazine reading.
We took the train to Hilversum (the same town we work in!) for dinner with family friends. We were a little bored on the train, as you can see :)
3
We spent a day in The Hague with Jeanelle and her boyfriend Steven, who live there. We were very impressed by how quaint and clean it was. Will definitely be doing a full post on the city soon! This is a photo of the Peace Palace.

The sun decided to come out so we grabbed our bikes and cycled to Oud Zuid - a neighborhood we don't spend much time in - to sit outside and enjoy some snacks & a glass of wine. Afterward we met up with some friends at Barca for dinner & drinks! It was so much fun!

A leisurely brunch at Le Pain Quotidien never disappoints!
8
Grocery shopping at our favorite store, Marqt. It's the Whole Foods of the Netherlands - love!
9
Cycling home our groceries for the week (it's a short one as we're off to Italy on Thursday!).

  1. Yay I love Marqt!! First time I went there, I was inside for 2 hours...oops. I've never been to Le Pain Quotidien but always wanted to go, their fresh breads always looks so yummy, the brunch is probably delicious :).

  2. ah, le pain is such a solid brunch spot - you've got to go!

    And I agree, Markt is fabulous. It just makes me feel closer to home for some reason. PAB & I gladly travel a bit further to shop there over our neighborhood grocers. And I secretly love how they don't accept cash - talk about forward thinkin'.

  4. Oh wow, it looks like you had an amazing weekend. I am so jealous of your bike with the basket in the front, I've always wanted one of those. And there's something about the first photograph that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

  18. I just found your blog and I LOVE it! I am an expat (originally from Oregon although my Hubs and I lived in KY before we moved) and we live in Serbia now. We may move around Europe quite a bit with Hubby's job, and I love looking at your pics and getting trip ideas. I am new to the blogging world, but I am realizing that there is so much info out there. I love first hand accounts of trips through Europe. Thanks for sharing your life!
