Where I went: The Netherlands – Roermond

I have never been to this town before. It is situated in the South of the Country, in the province of Limburg, and only 15km from the German border and the Belgian border.

Roermond is rich in culture and history (city rights date back to the 13th Century) and is definitely worth a visit just to see the lovely squares and old buildings.

Limburg is also famous for its Vlaaien (flans) and come in a wide variety, including fruit and rice custard flans.

First thing we did when we got of the train was to go for a coffee and a Vlaai!


To be very truthful, the “vlaaien” and the culture and architecture of Roermond wasn’t the (only) reason why we made the 2 hour train trip.

It was the Designer Outlet called Macarthur Glen which houses over 200 stores, including Prada, Escada, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabanna and much more. Droolworthy goodies!


Unfortunately most of it was still too expensive for me, and only winter items were displayed. I hesitated to purchase a beautiful Gucci Scarf/wrap at 150 Euro, but I was a good girl and didn’t purchase it. (yep feel sorry now)


My sister bought a gorgeous Michael Kors clutch and apart from having a nice lunch, no other purchases were made!

In any case, it was a really nice day out, and if you are in the running for Designer gear, this is one place you must go. And have a Vlaai.




Exhausted on the train.

Hope I didn’t snore.



Til next time,
