In Berlin, you’ve got the Baltic Sea nearby, here in Dusseldorf, we have the North Sea as a very popular place to travel to. Only about 2 hours away, you can find the Dutch North Sea coast, where the sand is delicate, the ocean is blue and the dunes are sandy and green. I love being at the ocean and the fact that we can simply take a trip there – even if only for a day – is so lovely.
So, a week ago on Sunday, we started with the morning sun and returned with the full moon from our one-day trip. On the way to Zuid-Holland, the sun was shining, it was warm and we couldn’t wait for the ocean. With our green frog, our Citroen CX from 1978, we hovered along through beautiful green landscapes to finally arrive at the coast 2 hours later with the warm sun and a soft breeze welcoming us.
At the beach, we simply enjoyed the sun, the warmth and a refreshing bath in the cool, but so very clear North Sea which is so much more beautiful than the muddy North Sea in Germany. At the only beach bar in Ouddorp Strand, there was even a small hippie-festival taking place. I love the Dutch for their love of a good party, hehe.
Are you team North Sea or team Baltic Sea? Where do you prefer spending your time? And how do you like my wartime inspired outfit? I’m looking forward to your comments!
