Visiting Michelle in Den Haag!

I met Michelle back in October when I was in Rome.  She was staying in the same room as me and we did some sight seeing together while I was there and got to know each other a bit.  I found out that she was living in Den Haag (The Hague) and would be back from her own backpacking adventure around the time I would be in Amsterdam so I decided to take a day trip to visit her!

One of my habits, whether it is good or not, is to just get to the train station and buy a ticket without doing any kind of research ahead of time.  I really didn't know when the next train would be or how often they run and it was only after that I found out the trains from Amsterdam to Den Haag run about every half an hour and that the ride is roughly 40 minutes long.  I'm just not very good at planning out things ahead of time, I like to have a free flowing itinerary.

Michelle and I had decided to get bicycles so that I would have the full Dutch experience.  However, in the morning it was raining so that plan had be scratched and by the time I arrived in Den Haag the sun was out again.  It was unfortunate that I didn't get to ride a bicycle but at the same time I'm super grateful that I wasn't soaking wet for the entire day.  That just would have made the trip a bit miserable.

We ended up checking out a couple of the main attractions: Parliament, the archway where people were hung, and the Royal Palace.  While we were at the Royal Palace, Michelle turned to me and said "the Queen is in today" in this matter of fact tone that it sounded like she had just had a conversation with the Queen of Holland.  It was because the flag was flying on the Royal Palace indicating that the Queen is in residence and I was standing just a few metres away from her place!  It might be the closest I've ever been to royalty.

The rest of the day we just walked around the town and ate the Dutch version of doughnut holes, though they only make the during Christmas time.  We also had fries with mayonnaise.  Dutch mayonnaise is amazing!  I already love mayo but Dutch mayo is even better!

Michelle also tried to teach me some Dutch but it is MUCH harder then German.  There are just too many vowels in the Dutch language!  Though some things are very similar I guess.  To end the day, we went to Fiddler's, an English pub, to meet her friends and have beers and burgers.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the
    net the easiest thing to be aware of. I
    say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just
    don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also
    defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks

    п»їhttp://lindsaymckenna.com/michael-kors-outlet.html The concept of personalized business gifts is taking roots among businesses nowadays. Some companies today are applying personalize business gifts for a marketing strategy to set up a competitive advantage against others. The thing that makes personalize gifts much better than other regular gifts is because they are made along with a personalized touch.
