A family weekend on the water :-)
I’m often asked to tell a bit more about my personal life. So I decided to start the column ‘My Life’ to tell you all about my personal adventures!
Sail away with me…
If the weather is sunny I love to go down South to visit my parents. I grew up in Middelburg, the capital of Zeeland. A small town with beautiful old canal houses like in Amsterdam but just a 15 minute ride from the beach! Being a true ‘Zeeuw’ (that’s how we call people from Zeeland) I’m most happy when I’m close to the water :-). When I visit my parents and the weather is nice we go sailing. Not on a sailboat, but with our sloop.A typical Dutch canal boat. Last weekend we went sailing at the Veersemeer, a beautiful lake at the old town of Veere where my family is originally from. Spending the day on the water gives me the true holiday feeling. Love it! My boyfriend is the best sailor ;-) ever.
When we go to the boat we take food and drinks with us to picnic on the water. Our favourite summer cocktail is Aperol Spritz. It looks very festive with the bright orange colour! You mix it with bubbly or prosecco and sparkling water. Cheers!!
PS: you have boats and boats, ours is the cute little sloop but we sailed into friends that have this beautiful yacht and had a drink together :-)!
