After a week of traveling I decided to have a lazy day. I did walk around and explore the town a bit, which ended up with me getting 10 thousand steps (ya my lazy days in Europe are like my most active days back home :/) I went to this street food place for lunch … Continue reading Gouda
Leni got some pastries from the bakery for breakfast (obsessed). Leni had the day off today so she showed me around her town, Mechelen. We started off by visiting the holocaust museum.
