Staycation is the new vacation this summer.

After months of working from home, our weekends have started to blend into our weekdays. Many of us are longing to set our eyes on a different view than the one outside our living room windows. A change of scenery is more than welcome.

As restrictions are being lifted in the Netherlands, people will start travelling by exploring their own backyard.

When you consider swapping the hustle and bustle of city life for natural surroundings, I recommend the Waddeneilanden. Spend a few days on Texel, the largest of the West Frisian Islands, also known as the Wadden Islands. This island offers landscapes unlike anything else on the mainland, including sweeping sand dunes, salt marshes filled with lavender, broad white beaches. The Wadden area is so unique that it was elected a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

Whether you are looking for a cultural, historic, adventurous, nature or romantic getaway – the Dutch have it all! Interested in having a trip planned to the lesser-known gems, send me an email.

Time to get those staycation plans in place for the summer!
