the hoofindex - rewind to the previous trip (queens birthday in london) - fast forward to the following trip (running of the bulls in pamplona)

 

It was the Senior Wim Hoof's birthday so we headed over to Holland for a quick trip to celebrate with him.

The line up...and behind us a true Dutch scene, a canal. Now what would we be standing on the banks of a canal waiting for?

 

A canal boat that doubles as a Pancake restaurant of course!

 

And it was also the first weekend of America's Cup racing, and since we couldn't find any TV coverage we had to resort to watching it online. We spent most of the race crowded around the laptop in tense silence, followed by jubilation at the Team NZ win!

 

Next trip is to see some bulls running down tight Spanish streets in Pamplona.
