The one in Leeuwarden

In june I visited my friend R. in Leeuwarden, in the north of the Netherlands. It 's a 2,5 hour trainride, and I arrived at the end of the day. After sitting still for so long, it was nice to take a little walk before dinner. Ofcourse, my favourite parts were the old, mismatched houses and gorgeous doors. Oh, and the colourful flowers adorning the bridges crossing the canals. 


 
 

Look at this happy looking yellow house! I'd love to know if it's this cheery on the inside too.

R. noticed some interested looking collections, like Spanish dancers and Snow White and her seven friends. These were in the same street, so we wondered if it was required to have a collection of some sorts, if you wanted to live here.



 Passing some hidden gardens

We also spotted some awesome street art. Walking makes hungry, so we had some tasty pizza and drinks after our walk.
