Back from Sabbatical, of sorts

My avid and loyal readers, and by that I mean my boyfriend and his brother, have been clamoring for another installment of my chronicled adventures.

Quite a bit, but really not that much, has happened since I went to the Muiderslot.

OH! I fell in love. Yes, madly in love. In the wonderful city of Gouda. With poffertjes. For those of you non-Dutchies those are little teeny tiny mini pancakes made of unicorn glitter and fairy dust, with powdered sugar on top. No joke these could easily top my Dutch Kit-Kat obsession. The only problem is that they’re pretty hard to find. And to find the market stall kind that are made fresh by a wizard right in front of you, even harder. I would have taken a picture of them but I seriously ate them faster than they could make them. So no pictures. But just imagine little pancakes the size of a half dollar coin, made of magic and everything that is good in this world, and you get the idea.

Other than that I’ve just been doing a ridiculous amount of Duolingo, and getting no closer to being able to actually comfortably say anything. And writing letters back home to some family and friends, because I LOVE snail mail. Serio.

I can’t think of anything else interesting, so I’ll just leave you with some photos I’ve taken around the city.

    You can buy poffertjes in major supermarkets in NL like AH or Jumbo 🙂 they sell packets for either making your own with Koopman’s mixtures or already made ones 🙂 🙂
