Zutendaal. My mom and I drove an hour south, to Belgium, to walk a so-called 'barefoot path'. It's the first one in Belgium ánd the first time I do something like this and it definitely is a lot of fun! Simply to walk through the forest and feel all different textures. It did require some proper foot-cleaning afterwards, but it was so worth it.
Nijmegen. My favorite thing about the Netherlands in summer definitely are all the free festivals. My favorite? De Affaire, without a doubt. It's a weekly (or well, 5 days) festival with great artists and this year the weather forecast even was GREAT, so I figured I'd crash at my friend Yolanda's place for the complete weekend. I had the best of days and not so secretly fell completely in love with I Am Oak. Just listen to it (and the whole cd).
