Inevitable Farewells, part 1

A travel blog entry by ellengoeseast


... my cousin Michiel spontaneously stopped by for lunch in Leiden last week, and I had a lovely dinner with my friend Noortje in Utrecht. I have also been spoiled rotten with various little gifts from my nearest and dearest (thank you!).

But it just won't stop. This week will be my last week at the office, goodbye ...
