Eindhoven. s’Hergotenbosch and shopping in both places!!

Dmitri, a A friend of mine I had met in Amsterdam, invited me down south to Eindhoven, so I happy availed myself of the opportunity to visit. I had been there before, but only in the airport, I had never seen the city center.  It was a nice little spot to visit. Eindhoven is home to the Dutch Philips company, and there are a lot of current and old Philips factories in Eindhoven. My friend and I went out for dinner but I honestly didn’t see very much of the picture worthy city, hence, a lack of pictures for Eindhoven Still it was pleasant enough.  The next day however we took a day trip up to s’Hergotenbosch (more commonly called Den Bosch, ask a local Dutch person to pronounce it for you. As for the ‘s at the beginning of the name, apparently the Dutch, when talking about a possessive noun, put the ‘s at the beginning, not the end of the word, which is the complete opposite of English.), meaning “The Duke’s forest.”  It was a lovely little city with nice churches and great shopping!

Shopping certainly didn’t disappoint either… they had a variety of wonderful shops down their side streets. One in particular I tried on a lot of a little gems but ended up taking home this amazing jumpsuit. The picture doesn’t do it justice:

It’s absolutely gorgeous.

I eventually had to go back to Eindhoven to meet a dear, old friend of mine that I haven’t seen in like 4 years so while I was waiting I went to the local H&M and tried on these gems:


I didn’t buy anything but it was nice to try on a few. My favorite was by far the black mesh skirt…

After shopping, I met up with two old dear friends of mine. I actually met them in Miami at Nikki Beach when I was there celebrating my my 30th birthday, and I’ve been keeping in contact with them ever since. Both hail from the Netherlands but have lived and have traveled all over, not unlike myself.  They were in town for the football match and we met up after that for dinner and caught up.   They invited me up to Arnhem with them to take a look at their office and some of their businesses, and of course I couldn’t say no….

But this is another post entirely. More to come. Stay tuned!
