Orange umbrella

Cyclist cycling through rain with orange umbrella in Amsterdam - Amsterdam Cycle Chic
After Saturday’s disappointment (the Dutch team lost the first football match in the Euro Cup against Denmark) this cyclist keeps up the good spirit by using his orange umbrella to keep a dry head in rainy Amsterdam. Hopefully it will bring luck to the Dutch tomorrow in the match against Germany!


Queen’s Day

Queen’s day, Queensday or Koninginnedag (as we call it), is a national holiday in the Netherlands. On this day we celebrate the birthday of the Queen of the Netherlands. Her birthday is actually on the 31st of January, but because the weather is generally very bad then, we decided to celebrate it on her mum’s birthday (if that makes any sense). Queen’s Day is also a typical occasion for the world-famous Orange Craze. On this day everything is and everybody is ready to party…
