Going on a road trip always has something exciting. At the moment it’s a popular trend to travel around and work from anywhere. But it’s also really fun as a day trip or weekend trip!
Going on a road trip reminds me of traveling, something I missed during this slightly different year. So when I got a text from www.weloveoldtimers.com if I wanted to rent an oldtimer for a day. And of course, I said YES! To be completely honest here, I don’t have a driver’s license yet. But gladly my friends and family do have a license, so problem solved! One of them is going with me 😉
First stop: picking out the car and the route
When I arrived at the place I didn’t realize how many cars they had! I picked out the Kever Cabriolet Minty, mainly because the weather was great and I loved the color.
So I had my car, the second decision to make was what kind of route did I wanted to do. They have multiple routes already planned out for you, but I like to go with the flow. My goal was to see at least one windmill, pick up some food for a picnic and to have a coffee break somewhere at the waterside.
On the Road
Driving around in the Netherlands was fun. Surrounded by trees, nature and cute little villages.
Second stop: coffee break
I’m always in for a coffee break! After driving around for only 20 minutes I saw a pretty spot surrounded by nature and knew this was the place to take a little break.
Good to know: The company has lots of tips written down for sightseeing and restaurants. And they gave us a goodie bag with goodies, some snacks and hot water for coffee, tea or hot chocolat.
Third stop: Picnic
This stop was probably one of my favorites. I mean, food?! Love it. We drove to a little bakery to pick up everything we needed for a picnic.
Good to know: – You have to order a picnic basket one day before. – I wouldn’t recommend eating inside or at the terrace. It’s located on a street close to a mall, not the prettiest place for a stop. – They also have bread, pastries, and different bakery items to order instead of a whole picnic basket.
When we saw a nice spot, we parked our car and had a relaxed lunchbreak. Such a lovely way to spend the afternoon!
Fourth stop: windmill
You can’t go to the Netherlands without seeing a windmill right?! So when I saw this pretty one, I had to take a picture. A good thing to know is that most windmills are closed on Mondays.
