Dagje uit

So, after 10 months of relationship and during that time only having had one outing, Michiel and I finally made the effort to go and discover part of the Netherlands that neither of us knew. We took the train (and a bus) to Muiderslot, the oldest castle in the Netherlands. It was built around 1286 and, after its most famous owner Count Floris V was murdered by his peers, it had as its most renowned other inhabitant the Dutch poet and Judge P.C. Hooft. Here are a few pictures from our day:

This is the castle itself. A little smaller than I expected, but still quite nice with its surrounding lawns, moat, etc. As you can see, this picture was taken from the side of the castle without the authentic 13th century satellite dishes bolted to it. They’re on the other side.

Me doing my P.C. Hooft philosopher/poet impersonation. Convincing?
Much more convincing, however, is Michiel’s jester impersonation. He’s so lovable!
