I'm at my happiest when we leave the city and head towards the country side. It's there that I finally get a sense of peace and space. Living in the netherlands has been a real trial for me when it comes to lack of privacy and open spaces. I am used to being able to walk outside without feeling eyes on me from all sides. Even when living in a neighborhood back home,everyone did their own thing without getting into others business.
I don't get that same feeling here. From the moment I get up in the morning and barely open my curtains, I am confronted with the city life...and the general dutch mentality of always having this need to look into your life and what you are doing,what new item you may have boughten and wondering how you could aford that.
So I get excited when it time to take a drive :) I love the country side here. It's so different from what I am used to but I love it just the same.
These photos were taken as we attempted to find a new fishing spot. Sadly the water is not what we were looking for but the drive there was well worth it!
