Charlemagne. I didn't know, although I seem to be a descendant of this king of Franks. The dome he has built 1200 years ago is still intact and of an unexpected style. We were also surprised by all the golden items in the treasury next to the dome. A real surprise. We will surely go back to this city, on a less rainy day.
passport-cover. Something that also comes in handy when travelling. An all-time favourite gift. You'll be seeing more of those soon.
't Roodt in Margraten with the family. This pit is still actually in use, so only on saturdays fossil hunters are allowed to come there. All the kids liked to be outside searching for treasures, as well as the adults (my inner nerd has really been awakened, because I'm even thinking of joining a geological association). But who wouldn't love to find loads of 70 million years old fossils? Two years ago I didn't even now about the possibilities to find fossils in the Netherlands, but now we're all hooked.
this amazing house. Although weather predictions weren't that good, the girls could play their little concert for the grandparents on the terrace in the sun. We enjoyed the company, the house and the activities (more about that later) very much. Thank you, R and L!
