A day out on the SS Rotterdam in... Rotterdam!
My latest breaks (2010) were:*
Bouillon, in the Belgian Ardennes and Leuven, Belgian university city and Geraardsbergen, a famous point in the Round of Flanders (biking)
Read about the Euromeet 2008 in Karlsruhe*
A weekend in the country. VT has a new contest about our favourite weekend out, and I came up with ga selection of places that are so close together, yet offer so much in way of nature, country life, history and even a Unesco Heritage site. Cycling from village to village or small town, it's all in the western part of the provinces Drenthe and Overijssel in The Netherlands. The places include Meppel, Ruinerwold, Kallenkote, Vledder, Frederiksoord, Steenwijk, Giethoorn, Kolderveen and Staphorst.
One of my favourite foods is the new Dutch herring. Salted, cleaned and eaten immediately. On sale as of today (3 June 2008). Yummy! I'd like to hear about your country's delicacies too. I posted a question about that on the Misc forum.
