Bicycles in London (you knew it was coming, didn't you?)

Bicycles in London (you knew it was coming, didn’t you?)

Well, one thing is for certain: we’re not in Holland anymore. The bikes look different and they aren’t as plentiful… And locking them up is serious business. The bike lanes are narrow and the traffic is faster. And, well, bikes are not king here. When we lived in the Netherlands, we were told that the […]

Ask an Expat: Men's fashion in The Hague

Ask an Expat: Men’s fashion in The Hague

A couple months ago, Duncan asked if I could post some photos of men’s fashion. It’s finally been warm enough here that people have been riding around without their big coats.

These photos were taken on Wednesday when we had surprise rain and hail. On Thursday, when it started raining before most left for work, more people were dressed in rain […]

In The Netherlands: Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe

Last Saturday, we drove up to Holland’s largest nature preserve: Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe. It is located about two hours from Den Haag and is one of those places we’ll need to visit more than once in order to see it all. This visit, we only had time to do a bicycle tour of […]

Dit is mijn fiets! (This is my bike)

Here’s my new bike! I took this photo on Sunday while we were on our way to ParkPop (billed as Europe’s largest free music festival) in Zuiderpark. As I was getting ready to snap this pic, Mr. DJ laughed and said you all would look at this photo and think I am an avid cyclist. […]
