Have an hipster Valentine!

We are not big Valentine people Mr Thingstodoinholland and I, so I do not have any suggestion for a conventionally romantic date.

I do have some places in mind that can become ironically romantic, if you visit them with the right person (i.e. anyone with a bit of sense of humor)...anyway, here they come:

- the harbour of Rotterdam. That's where we actually went on our second date.
Blade runner-esque neon lights, fumes and fires, secluded beaches just reclaimed from the sea, wild rabbits and nobody around but eager surfers and fishermen. Bring a takeaway and share it with your beau while looking at the sunset from the car;

- the La Place on the top of the V&D in Utrecht, as mentioned here. Get the dish of the day and a strawberry smootie with 2 straws and gaze dreamingly into each other eyes and over Utrecht's Domtoren and roofs;

- the EYE in Amsterdam, for some quality cinema followed by steamy cappuccino or dinner in the cafe overlooking the hustle and bustle of the Ij. (

- in The Hague,  go to the VaVoom on the Grote Markt and toast the night away while sipping Dark&Stormies and Porn Star Martinis (

Whatever you opt for, enjoy your weekend!

Sadly, these teddy bears bouquets are only available in Japan...
