Last days in Leiden

The transition from living in Leiden, back to New Zealand, is going slowly but surely. We’re still to get hooked up to the internet, which means posting on foldedcranes is a little tricky these days. But we are looking forward to getting back into our daily writing routine soon, soon. Today though, here are a few photos captured on our second to last day in Leiden. The sun shone, the canals sparkled, and the sight of the windmill became more important in my mind, knowing that where I was heading, 30 hours flight away, there’d be no windmills – well, none like this one, at least.

Incredible clouds over Leiden

Great day for a canal-side bike ride. Can you spot the keys of Leiden?

Leiden, we miss you!

    Happy to see you could enjoy your last days so well!
    And now New Zealand will offer you all of those things you had forgotten about it 🙂
    This will always stay your home!

    • Thanks Nienke! Your presence in the Netherlands in our final days was missed, of course! It is so nice to know that we have another home, on the other side of the world, always waiting for us with wonderful and welcoming friends. And, it is lovely to be back in NZ too. We feel very lucky about both these things indeed. Hope your travels went amazingly, looking forward to hearing. 🙂
