It’s officially winter! I’m sure we’re all back to school or work by now. I thought it was high tide to post about my wintery adventures
(my only adventure) of Christmas break 2014.
Finally Snow Again
One magical day in December, snowflakes fell and covered the ancient lands of Noord-Brabant (and also much larger parts of Europe). Lots and lots of snowflakes. We’ve been having pretty mild winters lately, so I was excited to wear mittens again. I think it was my first time seeing any snow again after two whole years, madness!
On the first day of snowfall I visited my grandparents for my opa’s 80th birthday. I couldn’t really go outside and play. Luckily, temperatures stuck below zero, so I cycled to the Mastbos to take photos of the remaining snow the next day.
It was pretty hard to get there by bicycle (without falling on my dainty derriere anyway). When I arrived, I noticed that other people must have had less trouble travelling by car. I have never seen the Mastbos so crowded. Nevertheless, it was actually quite pleasant to see so many people out with their kids, attempting to sledge off of non-existing hills (very big problem in the Netherlands).
I ended up taking so many photos that I had to split them up into multiple blog posts, so please keep an eye out for part two coming soon!
