“Jack” the Jack Russell

Just wanted to share that last November 28 2015, we adopted a Jack Russell. This little cutie finally found its home, with us. We are so happy to have him, he’s the sweetest dog and the real owned dog I’ve ever had.
Jack is born on the 28th of August 2014 and weighs 7.6kgs. He is a well trained puppy and have super duper high levels of energy. He loves to play the ball and his frisbee. He loves walking at the beach and his playground is the dunes of Zandvoort. He also have 2 bestfriends now, they are burre (frisse stabij dutch dog) and bonne (spanish podengo dog). He is very intelligent and a quick learner. Shows tricks for treats. He is trully a Jack Russell.

But, there’s a long story behind the adoption. I was at work and had no clue that my husband will adopt a dog. He told me that it was a spontaneous plan and it was actually a suggestion of my mom-in-law to get a dog. He told me that he first went doggie accessories shopping and even had no idea if he can get or what kind of dog he will be able to bring home at that day. He and his mom went to 3 animal shelters before they found this little sweetie.

My husband was picking me up from work and seeing Jack in the car sitting at the front seat, I was kinda confused. I actually dont know how to react. The first thing I’ve even said was “What is that?!, whose dog is that?!” At my surprise, my husband told me, it’s your dog, our dog. I even told him that I dont believe that it’s ours and asked for a proof. Looking at his passport and adoption papers I was in total shock, I even told him that “You know that im allergic to dogs right?” But he just told me, “you’ll soon get over it and for sure you’ll love him”… I was very hesitant and full of worries at the first minutes, but after a while of petting I told my husband that I love this dog. I’m glad you got him for me, for us.

So yeah, i’m now a proud owner of a Jack Russell and here is the first ever photo I took of him.

The Netherlands: Delft

Delft is known for the Delfts Blauw. Delfts Blauw means Delft Blue, it refers to the blue and white glazed pottery that was made since the 16th century in the Netherlands.
Been here before but never got the chance to roam around their city center. The center is big and spacious in which you will see their landmarks side by side. From the churches to their cityhall.
During our visit, it was super busy because they have this big market and it was an ok weather. I find Delft as a cozy place to visit. They still have these preserved houses and stores. They also have lots of pottery stores where you can shop and also do window shopping.

This is one of the canals in Delft.  

 

 

 

The Netherlands: Lelystad

Free from work and we decided to visit the famous Batavia stad in Lelystad. It was just like an open mall full of designer clothes and accessories with great discounts. Did not get a real pic of the place, but it just look like the typical houses in holland but in full blown colors. 😊 

The highlight of our road trip was also going to the harbor. My husband told me that they usually went there to chill. It was one of his childhood memory to be in this harbor. He says that in all of this time, nothing really much changed. Same old, same old. 

    
 
 

   

 
I must say that it’s very pretty to go there on a sunny day 😊

Day 5: La Roche, Belgium

Next destination: La Roche, Belgium

After spending 2 days in Luxembourg, we planned a route in which will bring us closer to our home in The Netherlands.

Upon driving, my husband saw Petit Suisse sign board. This place was the place where my in-laws used to stay during their summer vacation. So, due to it’s significance, we stayed at Petit Suisse in La Roche Ardenne, Belgium. Its a camping site! My first ever camping stay in a really very hot hot summer day!

The bench.

Since its still early, we decided to drive around and found a nice nearby town. I was actually amazed how beautiful it was. Its called Durbuy. Chic place but have very friendly people. Loving the ambiance. 

  
  

 
 

Day 4: Luxembourg

Today is our second day in Luxembourg.

We decided to explore the nearby places from Vianden. 

Beaufort Castle

  

Echternach cityhall

    

Abbey of Echternach

  

Park in Echternach

  
After spending some time eating, shopping and roaming around Echternach, we went back to Vianden. We were looking for a nice place to eat dinner and we ended up going up the mountain and enjoy this little peaceful place.
    
During the sunset, we walked around Vianden and we ended up at the bridge with the view of the castle. 

Oh and I forgot! Since I visited a new country here’s another jumpshot! 

   

Day 3: Luxembourg


Oh yes! Another country visited:)

After so many years of planning to visit Luxembourg, we are finally here!

The plan is that we are going to stay in Vianden, a town in Luxembourg. The first impression was “wow, Vianden is such a beautiful place. It is like an old little city in the mountain. Lovely street and bridge plus their little river and the view of the castle.”. The place is just so pretty that will make you think that you are in a fairytale story.

Vianden

We were still early when we arrived in Vianden, so we still got time to roam around the area and it is impressively beautiful and worth going. At the same time, we went around and look for a place to sleep and thanks to tripadvisor, we got an another nice hotel to stay in.

Hotel Heintz is the place where we stayed. I loved how they have this vintage style of hotel. It felt like I was in the series named “The Paradise”. The hotel owners were really friendly and also multi-lingual. They even gave us a very nice room with a balcony overlooking their garden.

And at the end of the day, we went to eat steak at Auberge Aal Veinen. Food was delicious!
