Back from the Hague

Updated on April 4, 2019

What can I say... I just love the Hague! I used the last of my vacation time to re-visit the city I lived in for years and had all kinds of experiences in – from the hardest school in survival to some of the most pleasant way of living.

Sea view


Being in a place with a beach and the sea, many parks and greenery, among people from all international ways of life, always helped me expand my mind, thoughts and body, and probably the soul.

Although the sunny but windy Netherland weather is not for everyone, just imagine the feel of the waves as you are walking barefoot on the beach. And then you can enjoy dinner in one of the seaside restaurants on the promenade allowing a clear view of the sea and the spectacular sunset. What else can one need but a good conversation with a friend, beautiful sea view, and of course the smell of the Netherland frites – Frietjes with a salad or whatever your heart may desire.

The City Center always has something to offer. This time, there was the Opening of the Theater season, so I accompanied Joan to her New Dance Center stand. I almost couldn't wait for the next day class of modern dance with her. She has been an enormous inspiration to me through all the years as a teacher, choreographer and the wonderful person she just is.

Opening of the Theater Season, Lange Voorhout


While she was busy signing up new students, I was strolling around. All of a sudden I ran into an old acquaintance Billy from the Hague Online, a go-to online magazine with all things Hague. The website is

The great variety of interesting events offered by the Hague led me to Miss Patsy, a very unique Hague guide finding Dark The Hague tours very attractive. Miss Patsy offers spine-chilling walks for Dutch and International people:

As an art lover, I couldn't miss Thea Bonnecroy who does sculptures and has her atelier open for visitors as a part of the program: Open Ateliers Den Haag


The limited time I had in the Hague made it impossible to meet with everyone I knew there. But I hope to meet YOU, my friends who I couldn't visit this time, there with every little return trip I make.

And one more thing, my dear friend Iza now officially graduated with a diploma in International Law!!! Of course we celebrated that as well!!! While she can rest now and take her time to plan her future, I guess she will be open for internships to start her career.


In 3 days you won't see it all, but you can enjoy a bit more of the city!

City center, places to be


Time to drum
