Easter in the Netherlands
Easter food/drink in Holland is :
- Home made kroketten as only my mum can make them
- Pancakes the size of wagon wheels in De Oude Muntkelder, where they have 80 different types of pancakes!
- The one and only Chocomel
- Dinner at Boro, Utrecht
- Import of Autodrop parkeerwacht Zwartjes
- Icecream from Luigi
Other Easter highlights:
- The weather. It has been over 20 C every day of the weekend, amazing. I actually got an Easter tan. I don’t think that has ever happened before, normally it rains.
- A canal boat trip through Utrecht. Nice to see a city I know so well from a complete different angle.
- Being able to bike everywhere as it is so flat.
- And last but not least, as dire chance and fateful cockup would have it: we managed to get ourselves into a secret sneak preview of The Boat That Rocked in Scheveningen the Saturday morning at 10.30am. The only screening all week in the Netherland before the official release on the 16th of April. And did I mention it was for free!
We had to get up at 6.45am to be able to make it to Scheveningen all the way from IJsselstein on Saturday, but we did make it, and after being supplied with two reservation numbers (we didn’t even know you needed those but a very friendly woman had two extra ones and made our day!) we entered the Pathe cinema and enjoyed Quentin with Dutch subtitles. Rock ‘n roll baby!
So what did you do with Easter?
