The spring is almost around the corner, but we are lucky enough to finally get some snow and cold weather in The Netherlands. When the lakes and ditches have a layer of ice that is thick enough to skate on, you can be assured that most of the Dutch grab their ice skates and make a trip on the ice! I wanted to take this chance to try it out myself, as I haven’t ice skated for many years. I did pretty well on the Paterswoldsemeer, a lake near Groningen. After 15 kilometers my feet started to hurt, which was a good excuse for me take some pictures.
