Jack Goes to The Netherlands

The Hague

After touring the Tulip Garden, the Titas of Europa went to this Pinoy restaurant and OMG! Best freaking Pinoy food ever! I’m not a die-hard fan of Pinoy food but everything we ordered are so delicious – even more delicious than what I’ve tried in the PH for 21 years LOL.

Their price is of course, European price! Super expensive if you’d like to eat Pinoy food in a karinderya. However, it was worth it!

I ordered this big ass serving of sisig for 12EUR, I believe so. I loved it! I also loved their chicken adobo!!! <3

Me looking stupid in The Hague. I was super sick that I have zero voice coming out of my mouth. Life lesson: Wear pants!

Scheveningen Beach

My mom used to live near Scheveningen Beach for 3 months and she told me how beautiful it was. The Titas of Europa along with Father went to the beach to grab some drinks. Again, it was painfully cold but beautiful. I just hate it when the cold breeze blows my face. It’s a torture.

If you see this bar just across the beach, that’s the bar that we went for some drinks. I forgot the name but it was amazing as well. I had Jager hoping that it’d help my stupid throat.

I love campfires! Would’ve been perfect if we toasted some S’mores but we were all so tired…

Rotterdam

A month after and before my tour started, I traveled from GK, Germany to Rotterdam, Netherlands. I was so afraid as it was my first train ride alone. I do not know what platform and what station but I just prayed and tried my best to stay alert. IMG_3132

Me acting calm but deep inside, I was nervous. Thank God for my pocket wifi from My-Webspot, I can track where exactly I was and how many more stations to go.

Looks like this in the first few minutes of the ride but after that, it was a scenic view!

I stayed with a family friend, Tita Lhen and Tito John before my group tour in Amsterdam which was a 30-min ride from their home in Rotterdam.

They picked me at the Rotterdam Centraal and upon arrival, I got to eat the best strawberry cheesecake in my life! It was homemade by Tita Lhen!

Then after that, I spent the whole day with their children, Samira and Chris.

It was a sunny day and I can finally wear tights without any leg warmers!

Sammira toured me around and we had this really good vanilla ice cream! <3

Within those days that I was in Rotterdam, we visited a lot of thrift shops. There were tons of good finds but I only have a small luggage for my group trip. I even saw this big furniture that can fit your TV, sound, and video equipment for only PHP 12,000! If shipping wasn’t an issue… :/

The Netherlands has the best fries! Fries with peanut butter, mayo, and garlic? Sounds weird but so delicious!!!

Rotterdam was fantastic but I had to go and meet new friends and see new places!
