It's been just over a month now since I came back to the Netherlands - which means that I got to celebrate my birthday here again this year! 😊
What's more, this year I had something new to celebrate - I decided to move to the Hague! 😃
It hardly took five minutes before our meals arrived! Claire had Soep va de dag (Soup of the day) which was chicken soup, and a Broodje Lekker (delicious sandwich); while I had pasta salmon, fried chicken with some extra cheese, and some orange soda to wash it all down. Everything tasted so good!😋
Between bites of food, we enjoyed a lengthy conversation about school and life in general.
After our first course was done, Claire decided to treat me to dessert as well.
I decided to have traditional canolis while she had a coffee. It was my first time eating canolis, and I'm happy to report that I quite enjoyed them. Tamara was the perfect hostess, and I can't think of a better place to have had my birthday lunch this year - or to have started my food blogging journey in the Hague. It was an all-round beautiful day, and I'm humbled by those of you who consistently make an effort to make it special each and every year. ❤️
Any suggestions about which restaurant in the Hague I should try next? Let me know below! 😉

Hey there. I'm Claire's mom. I just wanted to say I read this blog, and I think it was terrific. You're a very good writer, and you captured the flavor of The Hague and Da Lina's extremely well. You almost convinced me to stay longer in Holland, but then I saw the grey clouds and shook my head 'no'. 😉 I need to be on the sunshine. Thanks for a great read. 😉
Aww, this is such a pleasant surprise! 😃 Hi Claire's mom! 💁Thank you so much for your kind words. 😊 Hahaha, I don't blame you. I miss the sunshine, too - especially on a day like today!
