Food trail in Germany and the Netherlands

We managed to squeeze some food time into our tight schedule and it was awesome to savour the delectable palletes of cheeses, frankfurters, chocolates, etc
This is a typical German dish with sour cabbage (sauerkraut)
served with apple sauce (below)

the good ol' german sausages (bratwurst) in all its glory
chocolatier & sweets
absolutely no room for diet!
it's okay to feast the eyes, but not the tummy...
a typical sight for nail a quick bite while soaking off your nails...
this snack is fantabulous! it's Surinamese food called Telo ~ I could live on this!

Netherlands is geweldig!

Spent a day with these awesome nail artists in ONS Europe HQ in Enschede, Netherlands.

Check out the chocolate stores just in time for Easter
Lots of bicycles in Amsterdam, what a great way to keep fit and minimize pollution
Beautiful sceneries and caught a glimpse of the windmills along the journey
