holland / another day in eindhoven

October 12, 2010

We spent another day in Eindhoven with my Aunt and Uncle and Cousins. It was amazing because it was market day. Eindhoven itself is a very special city. The rise of lighting and electronics giant Philips happened here. Philips was founded as a light bulb manufacturing company in Eindhoven in 1891. There are references to light bulbs and the history of the company all over the city. My cousin Joost was giving me all the details on the history as we were strolling around. Smart cousin 😉 We did some shopping and wandering and Joost took some outfit shots for me on a older street with some of the best architecture in the city and right around the corner from his apartment. I wore my trusty booties again and this great striped blouse I picked up at H&M before my trip. I find myself wearing more black and white right now and loving how classic it looks! Scroll down to hear more about my day.

The market is filled with everything from food, clothes to fabric.

This is actually the same place I took my photos for my first holland post!

We sat down at a place called Usine to have lunch and a coffee.

One of my favorite elements in Holland. BIKE PATHS! (the red path is strictly for bikes and mopeds)

Today, I am sending much love to my entire family and wish I could be in Holland with them right now!

    I’ve enjoyed reading about your trip to Holland. I shouldn’t be surprised that you have family in Holland. I’ve always heard that everyone is pretty in Holland! Your photos are amazing, and I think the weather made these images even better.

    Don’t know what is better… the casually tied up top, the good looking Dutch genes in your family:) or the dutch background.
    Jealous of your trip to Holland… did you eat so many droppies that your stomach cramped? I always do, I will never learn…
