Meaningful Meanders: the Tour - Leg 2
Gouda/Arnhem/Nijmegen, the Netherlands
The highlight of my trip in the Netherlands was the 3 days I spent with Mark!
Before meeting Mark in Arnhem, I went to Gouda to visit its weekly(April~August) Cheese Market!
Gouda is not only the hometown for Gouda cheese but also the iconic Dutch dessert, stroopwaffel! The cheese trading culture was so exciting and unique that keep us visitors entertained, so as its attractive cityscape and traditions!
Mark (aka the most friendly local in the Netherlands) invited me to explore the eastern part of Netherlands that most tourists wouldn’t go!
I got to visit the oldest city in the Netherlands, Nijmegen, and I participated in the last day of the annual music/walking festival, Vierdaagsefeesten! There were like more than 10 stages around the city, the whole city was literally PARTYING, I had lots of fun with Mark and his friends!
Mark and I had lots of fun exploring Arnhem and I got to let him see his city through my lenses!
We spent a lot of time in his apartment cooking, trying Dutch food and exchanging culture and music taste, to keep us from going outside because of the HEAT! (Check out our Dutch Food Taste Test here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ0khstdp3s)
