This past weekend the weather was looking ridiculously good (as in, 24 degrees!) so we went on a hike with Michiel’s parents in the southern area of the province of Limburg. [We were in a town called Schin op Geul. If you look here on the map page, it is down near Maastricht] The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and there were green hills and trees as far as the eye could see. Spring has definitely sprung in the Netherlands. Many people have already planted their flower gardens outside! This is very early, considering that Canadians don’t do much planting until near the end of May.
Anyway, we had a great time enjoying nature. Here are some pictures:
