Our 2020 summer vacation
We were a little disappointed at first, of course, but very quickly we started thinking about other alternatives. We started by looking for an alternative within the Netherlands. But, of course, we were not the only ones to make this decision. It was practically impossible to find anything here within our budget. We then decided to be tourists in our own city, in Groningen. We changed our perspective and started looking at our city as real tourists. We visit places we have been to numerous times, but this time with a very different look. We met with tourists from other parts of Holland, Belgium and Germany.
It’s amazing how we change the course of our experiences when we change the perspective of things that we can’t change. And we had a lot of fun. The new Groningen Forum was (is) our favorite place. It is beautiful, modern and has plenty of things to do for both children and adults. While my youngest son was lost in the children’s library, where he coincidentally encounters friends from the nursery school or schoolmates, the two older ones had fun with exhibitions, electronic games. And because life smiles on you when you thank and appreciate what it gives you, as a bonus, at the last minute, we managed to find a Hotel in Rotterdam within our budget, where we spent 4 wonderful days. Rotterdam is a city that both my children and I love. We have a lot of fun whenever we go there.
I hope you had a wonderful vacation too. Do not forget to dream and always strive for the realization of your dreams.
