Guyito Goes to The Netherlands!

Stroopwafels look yummy!

Stroopwafels look yummy!

Hallo! Yes, you’ve read it right, I have been to The Netherlands! How exciting, isn’t it? I am used to seeing rice fields in my home country, the Philippines. Here, it’s colorful fields of tulips!

But first off, let’s have some snack. A carabao has to eat, too 😉 So I’m buying a stroopwafel. It’s a waffle made from two thin layers of baked dough. Between the layers is a gooey caramel-like syrup, which makes the waffle oh-so-delicious. Oh, and the syrup has a hint of cinnamon.

Did you know that the baker who first made this famous snack used leftovers from a bakery, like breadcrumbs? I wonder if he ever thought his stroopwafels would be this famous hundreds of years from the first time he made them.

Gotta eat some stroopwafels now so I’m signing off. But please do visit my blog again because I am posting lots of photos from this beautiful country, which is the world’s second largest exporter of food and agricultural products. Did you read it, guys? Ag-ri-cul-tu-ral. Ahem. Looks like I’ll really enjoy it here 😉

Tot de volgende keer! Stay tuned for more of my adventures in this land of tulips, windmills, cheese, and wooden shoes!
