Anyway, Angela arrives with her brother tomorrow night so I’ve taken Friday off to play tour guide. They are only here till Sunday so we are making the very most of it.
- She is a total foodie gal (read her yummy blog here) so dinner at our favorite Italian pizzeria of all time. It's within walking distance of our house and used to be a largely undiscovered spot, but now you can’t get in without a reservation. The great thing is we have been going there for two years, so they always squeeze us in. But more on Follia a different day.
- Touring around Amsterdam, doing all the typical touristy things: riding bicycles, Vondelpark, Heineken experience, canals, Amsterdam letters, De Pijp, shopping in the 9 Straatjes.
- Touring around the Hague (where we actually live): International Peace Palace, Parliament Building, city centre and lunch at our new favorite sandwich shop.
- Depending on timing, we would love to also take them to Gouda – birth place of Gouda cheese! Gouda is only a 15 minute train ride away from the Hague and its a fun little daytrip.
But we will be taking the visit as it comes... all I can say is that there will be a lot of catching up, wine and Dutch cheese involved :) Happy weekend!
