Oirschot, The Netherlands

Today we visited the charming village or Oirschot – such a pretty place with lovely shops. Just 15 minutes from Eindhoven it is apparently home to many wealthy Dutch – we saw a Lamborghini and a Bentley.
There was a pretty big ice skating rink but was very busy and the kids who do not know how to skate have to stay over to the side in a small area – Boxtel is better for our kids with the chairs -they keep asking when are we going back.
In August 2017, it will be home to the Icelandic Horse Championships. On their site there are tiny horses running very quickly and funny – perhaps that is the attraction – no clue.



There is a great cheese shop De Ster & Kaas Culinair which has amazing choices and I could spent an afternoon at a class learning about the various cheeses sold there.  If you zoom in there is some very moldy cheese…  Humm – not even sure I’d be willing to try it.  I think I’d end up with a major migraine headache.

 After getting Brasserie TOF for a drink and bitterball.

In the evening we played the vintage Jumbo Jet game we picked up in the Kringloopwinklel in Leiden.

I think we’ll visit Oirschot again this trip.  

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
