"I hope you like my dress, your majesty"

My family celebrated our last Queensday at a town
called Vlissingen. Vlissingen is one of my
favorite places in Holland because of the beach
 and the boulevard.

For those who doesn't know, Holland is a monarchy
and for that we celebrate our queens birthday on
'Queensday' each year. As being said before, this
years Queensday will be a special one because it
will be our last Queensday for now. Our queen decided
to retire and this means her son Willem-Alexander will take
over the throne. It will be a 'Kingsday' from
now on!

Queensday has always been a big holiday thing here. Events
are held everywhere and everyone is feeling all
proud being 'Dutch'. Including myself of course. And for
this special occasion I suited myself up in a nice orange
dress from H&M (it was only 10 bucks!). 

Enjoy my post with pictures spam! 


We were blessed with great weather!

 Strolling around fleamarkets! Didn't bought anything cool tho. 

Our national color is: red, white, blue and of course orange. 
 
 This spot really reminds me of a tropical exotic place.

 Beautiful couple. 
 
 I thought it looked funny how this statue popped out in the sky...
 
 Enjoying 'kibbeling' a.k.a fried fish!
