The green spectrum seems to be the ideal summer color this time of year. In a matter of a couple minutes, I spotted 3 lovely ladies donning the color in style–and on their bikes of course! So, yes, go out and enjoy this weather! Hopefully it’ll stick around a while…

Picnic daysThe Dutch take picnicking to a whole new level. Once the sun comes out, it’s like entire kitchens are brought to the park! And the best way to get to the park is of course by bike! The Vondelpark was packed with picnickers this weekend. Where were you picnicking this weekend?

Flirty Sunday

by MeredithFlirt tip #17: Get a cute dog. And like a good-sized one (nothing against little dogs!). Put him in your bike basket. Roll up to cute blondes. Make them smile.

Now that’s a flirty Sunday.

Groningen Cycle Chic

This weekend we went to the beautiful city of Groningen. Groningen is in the north of the Netherlands. It has an old and famous university, a cool modern art museum ‘the Groninger Museum‘ an old city centre and as every Dutch city; it is full of bikes and everybody of all ages cycles.

Amsterdam is blooming

Apart from clogs, cheese and Johan Cruijff, the Netherlands is also known for its bad weather. Rain, snow, gusts of wind, just a few things you have to handle during a typical Amsterdam winter. But the bikes across the city are still in full bloom, meaning you can enjoy a nice bouquet of flowers on almost any street corner.

So if you’re planning to visit Amsterdam, and your cityguide says that the Dutch winters are gloomy and boring: they have clearly not taken into account the Amsterdam flowers that are spread throughout the entire city.
