A Day In The Veluwe

The Veluwe is a natural park in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. The Veluwe features many different landscapes, including woodland, heath, some small lakes and Europe’s largest sand drifts. After living in The Netherlands for four years, my hubs and I went to visit the park.

Around 11 O clock, we arrived at the park. We bought the tickets online which saved us some time at the entrance. The paid €20 and it included the entrance to the ‘Kröller-Müller’ museum.

The museum was the first stop. The Kröller-Müller Museum is a national art museum and sculpture garden. It was founded by art collector Helene Kröller-Müller within the extensive grounds of her and her husband’s former estate. It opened in 1938. The collection includes a lot of Van Goghs famous paintings. The sculpture garden is very impressive.

After the museum, we went to the restaurant park. It is located around 5km from the entrance. We stopped there to have lunch. They have a couple of pf vegetarian options. We ordered the udon noodles with grilled vegetables, tomato soup and lactose-free pancakes with apples. The food was surprisingly good.

Next, we could take a 10km or a 26km route to discover the park. We were feeling too enthusiastic and decided to take the 26km route. The route was fantastic. We bike through the forest, the heath, and the dunes. It was beautiful all the way. Every couple of km it felt like entering a different area.

At the entrance of the park, there are white bicycles that you can lend. They were not the most comfortable and fast but they were in good shape. All the bicycles have a children seat on the back so you could also go with a kid.

The 26km route was great. It felt so disconnecting to spend so much time in nature. The Veluwe is a park that I would like to visit again. And I highly recommend it for a day in nature. If you decided to go and visit the park, don’t forget to bring enough water and snacks for the day.

This Is How A Tiny House Looks From The Inside

The first time I heard about a tiny house was in the documentary ‘Minimalism’ on Netflix. Since then I fell in love on the idea of living in a small place, with only the necessary. Without extra space for clutter thus more space in your head for rest.

From the holiday park ‘Droomparken’ my husband and I got to stay in a tiny house for two nights. I finally experienced how it is to live in a small place like this. If I can live in a house like this with my husband and 1,5-year-old daughter? That deserves another blog post. For now, I want to show you how a one bedroom tiny house looks like.

My Favorite Podcasts

A couple of years ago I discovered the world of podcasts. It was when I had a job where I had to commute three times per week that I got to listen to inspiring people for free. Today I want to share with you my favorite podcasts so far:

The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes
