30 April - Koninginnedag

Koninginnedag is a bank holiday and it is because we celebrate the birthday of our Queen. It actually isn't her birthday on the 30th but it was her mother's and she has always told that the people should celebrate it on the 30th. The color of our Royal family is orange, since they are called the family of Oranje-Nassau. So when it's the 30th of April streets are filled with people wearing orange clothing, you will see the streets turn into orange partystreets and there are markets, music, drinks and parties everywhere! Finally the sun was shining and since almost everybody has a day off, people are relaxed. We had a nice day of going to Eindhoven (we skipped the capital Amsterdam), meeting people, talking, watching other people, having some drinks and dancing. Wonderful!

*****************************

Wat is Koninginnedag toch een leuke, vrije dag. We zijn naar Eindhoven abgefahren (we sloegen Amsterdam maar eens over) en hebben genoten van de zon die ein-de-lijk scheen en de relaxte mensen. Het was een mooie dag gevuld met ontmoetingen, kletspraatjes, mensen kijken, drankjes doen en dansen. Heerlijk!
