Sunset Dinner in Scheveningen

Today I had dinner with Nomadic Matt (@nomadicmatt), a perpetual traveler and celebrity blogger who visited Haagsche Suites last year already.

We had dinner at Beach club “Doen”. Doen = Dutch for Do!

Good food and good service by a friendly and professional crew. Good to see Matt back, albeit too short. As a dessert a nice and crisp true Scheveningen Sunset.

Scheveningen is the beach resort of The Hague. In summer the beach club is an excellent location for many a wedding celebration and in many occasions the newly wed couples celebrate their first honeymoon night in Haagsche Suites. I should go there more often.

The Peace Palace in The Hague

Almost a year ago I took this photo of the Peace Palace, which is around the corner from Haagsche Suites and attracts buses full of tourists all day every day. Looking at it again, I see it is a bit unsharpened, unfortunately. I’ll look for another one which I took the later with my then new camera of which the card wasn’t functioning properly…but somewhere I must have that other photo.
The peace palace is not only a significant building in The Hague, but also something to visit, albeit by it standing there as a monument of trying to achieve peace though international justice. It is the home of the International Court of Justice, that decides on conflicts between countries.
