Want holiday inspiration for a long-weekend away? In our 3-part series, we’re sharing our favourite trips from Belgium. First up – our favourite road-trip getaways.
The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Groningen is sheep, which may seem a bit odd as the whole country seems filled with the wooly creatures. However, the first time we visited Groningen, Andrew decided to drive on the smallest road he could find, which ended up being alongside a dyke and it was littered with sheep. We’ve returned to this special spot several times, and it never ceases to make us smile.
We made a weekend getaway to Groningen and in addition to sheep, we found a beautiful botanical garden in the Hortus Haren, and visited some adorable baby seals at the seal rescue facility. We’ve had a peek at the Wadden Sea and we think this northernmost part of the Netherlands is pretty special.
