One of the biggest regrets I have of the years I spent in the UK is how little I travelled within the country while I was living there.
In the months following my move there from Kenya, my mum & I visited a few popular places (Wembley Stadium being the only one I remember clearly); a year or two later, we tried our hand at local tourism yet again and visited Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, and the Big Ben - also in London. However, there are so many other places I planned to visit but never did.
That's why I resolved to do things differently once I moved to the Netherlands.
Ever since I moved to the Netherlands, my Mum has been planning to come down here for a visit. Little did we know that it would take almost two years before she actually did so. She eventually came over this past summer and was here for just under a week.
Together, we explored parts of the country that even I hadn't seen yet. I'd assumed that we would book a hotel here in The Hague for the duration of her stay - which we did - but she also wanted to experience something different. So, we decided to spend a night on the SS Rotterdam.
