Prinsengracht / Maria

“What is something you learned in your twenties that you’d like to pass on to other twenty-somethings?”

“Travel. I say travel as much as you can and visit different countries. When you’re young, you still have that freedom. You are not tied to work. You aren’t married yet and don’t have kids to take care of. You don’t have a mortgage so your money could best be spent on traveling. You learn so much just traveling the world and meeting people all over the world. That’s what I would say to twenty-somethings – travel.”

I had the pleasure of meeting Maria on the Prinsengracht the other day. Maria, from Ecuador, was here visiting for a few days and asked: “What is really Dutch to eat that I have to try?” I couldn’t think of something more Dutch than our Dutch soused herring so I told her to have a try at ‘haring’. Maria, I hope you got the chance to try it and it was a pleasure talking to you!
