Travels: Kootwijk, The Netherlands

 Last weekend we went for a short trip to the Veluwe, a region in The Netherlands where we normally go to in the summer, but especially my husband wanted to see something different than the walls of our own house after almost two years of working from home, so we decided to go in the winter. Here's an impression of our trip. 

We also brought our little friend James. 

Because it was the weekend for Valentine's Day I made chocolate hearts for my daughter and made a charcuterie board.

We hiked a short trail over the sand-drift near the village of Kootwijk. 

Went for a lunch in Wychen

And as is becoming a sort of family tradition: visited a castle.

It was just a short weekend, but it was great to be in another environment. 


  1. I love little weekend getaways! It looks like you had a great trip.

  2. One of the pluses of living in Europe!

  3. I will be visiting the Netherlands soon. Is this far from the city?

    1. Depends on which city you mean. But The Netherlands is very small country. From Amsterdam to Kootwijk is about an hour drive, but from Amsterdam no place will take longer than two, three hours to reach.

  4. Very nice. How very beautiful. #alittlebitofeverything

  5. Looks like an interesting trip. Your Valentine charcuterie board is amazing! Have a great week.

  6. Great trip and photos. Glad you were able to get out for a while. #HomeMattersParty

  7. What a beautiful place - and your Valentine's Day charcuterie board is fantastic! Thank you for sharing, Liz and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul community!


  8.  Thank you for such a great post you wrote here and I'm very obliged to write an article here on the benefit of herbal herbs.I am 29 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer, ease of treatment and a similar story, except for my first acceptance as a rejection of herbal medicine. I was not part of the Perseid movement and did not really build relationships with any of them, I just believed in their operation. I say this because it was during the use of Dr. Itua herbal medicine that I now attest that herbal medicine is real, the phytotherapy Dr. Itua heals my breast cancer which I suffered for 2 years. Dr. Itua herbal medicine is made of natural herbs, with no side effects, and easy to drink. If you have the same breast cancer or any type of human illness, including HIV / AIDS, herpes cancer, bladder cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, skin cancer and skin cancer. , LEUKEMIA, VIRUSES, HEPATITIS, INFERTILITY WOMEN / MAN, LOT OF LOVE, LOTTERY.
