Since we moved to the Netherlands, we were planning a road trip to France and…
Visiting Europe with my then-boyfriend and now-husband and parents in law. I will remember this holiday for the rest of my life since I got engaged to my best friend. Our final destination was St Anton, Austria cause they love skiing, but before that we first made a few other stops.
We arrived in Amsterdam on a very cold and windy Monday afternoon. For our second night, my mother in law booked us a table at one of Amsterdam’s top fine dining restaurants which was in a very old building. It was a 6-course menu. We started with …
We celebrated New-Years in Amsterdam. A few of my other foodie highlights were the delicious Nutella Pancakes, Poffertjies, Cheese, visiting Wynand FokInk, Pom Frites, and eating at Jackets. I think Jackets serve the best potatoes and they have their own craft beer made from potato.
Our second stop was Zurich, Switzerland. Switzerland is a small, landlocked country in the heart of Europe. It is wealthy and well-known for its mountains, chocolate, cheese, and watches. When you think of traditional Swiss food you probably think of Cheese Fondue, Raclette, Alpermagronen, Bircher muesli or Swiss Chocolate. But funny enough, what I will remember forever is the Holy Cow Burgers we had there. It was delicious. I also had the best custard tart from a bakery somewhere in a small little town called Lucerne. Lucerne is a compact city in central Switzerland, in the German-speaking portion of the country. It is well known for its preserved medieval architecture, sits amid snowcapped mountains on Lake Lucerne.
Saint Anton am Arlberg, Austria
St. Anton am Arlberg is an Austrian village in the Tyrolean Alps. It’s known as a gateway to the Arlberg ski region and is often called the “cradle of alpine skiing” for its role in inventing the sport. The village is also known for its lively apres-ski scene.
The most amazing memory we have of this beautiful little Austrian town is that we got engaged there.
