It took a while but we're in Holland...back in my home town. We landed on Sunday at 5.40am and went straight 'home' where my family and friends were waiting for us. It was fantastic to see all of them again, I haven't seen most of them for 2 years. After everyone got to meet Marcel, and we caught up with some Aussies, we went for a walk. It's great to get to see my hometown through Marcel's eyes...everything is so different all of a sudden.

On Monday we went to visit The Hague and Madurodam (miniature Holland) which was so cute. I had never been there before and everything is replicated in a scale of 1:25, super cute. Afterwards we went to Scheveningen...Holland's most popular beach which was very empty because it's soooo cold here now. We were hoping for spring weather but it's still only around 16 degrees.
Tuesday was reserved for Amsterdam. We strolled the streets and visited some awesome exhibitions. We stayed the night and got into our orange gear for the biggest festival of the country...30 April = Queensday! On this day the whole country turns orange and we celebrate our former Queen's birthday. Our current Queen decided to keep the day and not change it to her official birthday which is in January.
That's a short recap of our trip...now were off to Cologne in Germany to visit one of my uni friends.
