Memories left in s’-Hertogenbosch

One of my friends invited me to go to the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. For me, ‘s-Hertogenbosch is one the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands, so of course, I agreed to go.

In her past, my friend spent quite a lot of time in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, so she wanted to show me “hers” ‘s-Hertogenbosch and its hidden spots. 🙂

Exploring ‘s-Hertogenbosch

When I travel somewhere, I always have a tradition to go to the information centre. Therefore, so far, I can say that the information centre, which is in ‘s-Hertogenbosch is my favourite. When you enter the place, you see the ruins and you can climb up the stairs, enter the ruins and explore them. I have never seen an information centre like this before. 🙂

Walking in the city, we stopped at one of the candy shops. The sweet scent of candy, the lively atmosphere in the store and the authentic interior – made the place special. And yes, I bought some candies. I could not resist. Ha ha. 🙂

The workers of the shop were kind and let me take some pictures of the candy shop interior.

Have you ever thought about the existence of a time machine? Well, I did for sure. ^^ Now, when I think about it, memories can be called as a time machine. Due to, we can go back to specific periods of our lives in the shape of our memories…

And so, we walked across the streets of the city while she was telling me her past memories and experiences. My imagination is quite deep, so when someone tells me something, everything pops up in front of my eyes and becomes real.

It was an interesting experience for me. I was feeling like traveling around the time with the help of memories. The city has changed quite a bit. Nonetheless, that is normal. Time passes. Everything changes, we change.

All in all, I am thankful to my friend Jantine, who took me to ‘s-Hertogenbosch and shared with me her past memories…  I believe that sharing memories, telling stories can draw us closer, strengthen the bonds of friendship. Therefore, I am grateful that you let me in your world. 🙂

As always, thank you for stopping by and until the next time! 🙂

With love,
