City on my own - Nijmegen

My school schedule has been quite nice the past few weeks and I have been able to go on a day trip for 2 or 3 times now. I go to a city I'm interested in, by myself. I explore it, take some photo's and probably try the local food. Today I'm going to show you what I did in Nijmegen!

I have been to Nijmegen many times before, but never on such a perfectly summers day! The weather was perfect for a day trip. I arrived at lunch time, so I went to my 'go to' lunch place "La Place". I ordered a strawberry yogurt smoothie and a nice sandwich.

This was the view while eating my lunch! I had a big table for myself, the restaurant was quiet and I took the time to really enjoy my meal. I don't mind sitting in a restaurant by myself. I usually have a notebook with me so I can doodle a bit while eating and that's how I like it.

I finished my lunch in 45 minutes and headed off to the "Waalkade" which is a beautiful spot to just sit and enjoy the river view. The Waal is quite a busy river when it comes to boats, so I enjoyed spotting all the different names the boats got. 

I also listened to the first Harry Potter audiobook in Finnish! I was listening to the story and forgot all about time. After this lovely afternoon at the Waalkade I headed back home and fell satisfied and happy!

Do you like to go one little trips by yourself?

Thank you for reading this small blogpost!



  1. Het ziet er heel mooi uit! Ik ben nog nooit in nijmegen geweest. Ik vind die smoothie en broodje er ook heerlijk uit zien trouwens.

    1. Dankjewel! En ja, Nijmegen is zeker een aanrader!

  2. Ha wat leuk dat je in Nijmegen was! Mijn broertje woont daar en ik ben er een paar maanden geleden dus geweest om hem op te zoeken. Ik blijf het een mooie stad vinden, zeker ook het strandje langs de Waal. Leuk dat je dit soort tripjes in je eentje maakt! Dat doet me eraan denken dat ik dat ook weer eens moet doen :) Het is soms zo fijn om er in je eentje even op uit te gaan.


I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
