After a delicious breakfast (focused on quality instead of quantity, which is something I appreciate) at the hotel, we drove to a town called Etten-Leur. It was time to visit the wine and asparagus farm De Santspuy. Can you smell the nature?
Gilbert showed us how asparagus grows, how you pick them and so on. He was super passionate about what he’s doing and I enjoyed it a lot to learn so much about asparagus.
Asparagus taking a bath.
This made me smile, reminded me of childhood.
So, getting curious of what the asparagus tastes like of course.
And the wine, yum?
Oh look! I can tell you, it was delicious. And I can tell you, I have some asparagus in the fridge that Gilbert so generously gave us as a present. I could have stayed at the farm all day, it made me so relaxed and I almost lied down on the grass to take a nap, but that would have been a bit rude, right? Nature!
Time to head into town for a tour, but first a quick stop to take pictures of cows. I have never seen so many cows as I did in The Netherlands. Wanted to jump out of the car, over the fence and hug them all. Love cows!
In Etten-Leur we met a sweet guide who showed us a tree famous from Van Gogh’s art, the Van Gogh church and told us a lot of stories about him and his art.
For the love of architecture.

This is my favourite self-portrait by Van Gogh.
This is the last blog post from my weekend in Brabant, I had an amazing time and look so much forward to going back again already next week. Such a beautiful region, kind people, lots of cows, great food and positive energy. Thank you, Brabant!
