Family visit in Holland
It’s been two years since my mother and I last had a chance to visit our Stockmann family in Holland. The cause being, of course, the covid-19 pandemic. To avoid flying and make us more flexible, we took our car from Sweden and drove all the way to Amstelveen, close to the airport Schiphol. We had in total five days with a tight time schedule to visit as many as possible, i.e. my uncle Guido in Amsterdam, my cousins Ynte and Johan with families in Den Haag, and my God Parents Carl and Mieke in Nijmegen. Plus we went shopping on the market (lots of cheese), bought long-enough jeans for me and a lot of other nice things to have from the Netherlands, e.g. cookies and raisin buns. It was beautiful and warm weather most of the time and we therefore also went on a longer biking trip along the canals. There is simply water everywhere in Holland and it’s surprisingly green and space-friendly considering how many people live there. One perfect thing; there are no electrical scooters – heaven on Earth!
