Today, we woke up to below zero degree, frost on the ground, fog hanging overhead and frozen canals. It’s now officially winter in Groningen.
It was freezing. We went for a walk along the canals in Hoornsemeer, some people went cycling and a bird was trying to cross the road. Poor bird.
Times like this, there’s only one place to go – the Scandinavisch dorp. It is located in Oude Badweg 1 near the Hoornsemeer lake. The Scandinavians have perfected the art of being ‘koselig’ (cosy/nice/warm). And cold winter days such as today are but ordinary to them. There is a Norwegian cabin-restaurant and a troll greeted us at the entrance. The place reminds us so much of everything Norsk and all we needed was a fireplace to warm our hands and a cup of coffee to warm our hearts:) Looking forward to ‘koselig’ winter days ahead.
