Veteranendag (Or: Veteran’s day in the Netherlands)

Today was the 14th Veteran’s day in the Netherlands, held in The Hague. (official website in Dutch). It is comprised of a parade and events at the Malieveld, a large field just outside of The Hague’s Central Station. During the parade there was also a flyover performed by the Royal Dutch Air Force, featuring both modern and historic aircraft.

Feest aan zee (Or: Party in Scheveningen)

I am still impressed by the fact that I can spell Scheveningen without looking it up. Pronouncing it on the other hand…

This year is Feest aan zee (Seaside Celebrations in English). It was 200 years ago that the first bathhouse was constructed in what is now known as Scheveningen. Yesterday was the finish of the Volvo Ocean race which lasted 45,000 miles. It started in October of last year. Crazy!

Here’s a look at an advertisement for Feest aan zee near Malieveld (Marco and I were on our way to the Rrrollend food truck festival last weekend).

Summer eating (Or: Rrrollend Food truck festival by Malieveld, The Hague)

Yesterday Marco, Roger and I saw Suicide Squad at the local IMAX movie theatre (Pathé Spuimarkt). Afterwards we visited the Rrrollend Food truck festival by Malieveld, close to Centraal Station.

And what delicious food! Here’s a look at some of the photos I took. First, a look at my Asian Chicken bowl from Roll or Bowl:

Adventures in Malieveld (Or: The Hague skyline)

Last week Marco and I visited Malieveld, a large grass field near Central Station which hosts everything from festivals to carnivals and even (pre-approved) protests and demonstrations. The weather was great for an after-dinner stroll.

Take a look at The Hague’s skyline from this area:

There’s even an animal farm, complete with (slightly skittish) deer.

I am looking forward to the next day of bright sunshine and warm temperatures. The city definitely comes alive!
