i’m having a hard time keeping my focus today, because paulo discovered something completely and totally awesome: GOOGLE MAPS HAS STREET VIEW IN THE NETHERLANDS*!! :D
sounds random, but if you, like me, have spent some time abroad, the temptation of checking out all the familiar places is irresistible and very likely to send you on a nostalgic roller-coaster all day long. for my groningen peeps, here are some familiar sights. i’m sure some of these will make you go awwwwww as well :)
our student house, in van houtenlaan, the first place i checked for :) it looks the same and i can almost see my room here…
the albert heijn we used to go to!
mamma mini, my favourite thrift store!! how i’ve missed you!
the gasunie building where i used to work!
grote markt, vismarkt, sally o’brien… *happy sigh*
oh, the nostalgia of happy times with friends in all of these places… and now if you excuse me, i’m going to peruse the other million spots in this beautiful city…
(*well not in the whole of the netherlands – just amsterdam, rotterdam.. and groningen!)
