Summer is here

As soon as the sun starts shining again, I want to get outside as soon as possible. The sun and being outside give me a lot of energy! For example, I love running immensely, even after a long, busy day at our hotel I like to run a lap by the water. Or I take a brisk walk through the park. Especially in the evening it is nice to leave all the hectic of the day behind me. Also invariably on my agenda during the summer months: swimming, sunbathing, water sports and taking a boat out on the water. When the days get longer again, it also means eating outside and dining late into the evening. I really enjoy those endless summer evenings hanging out on the terrace with my friends. Good drinks, good conversations and lots of laughter make for great memories. I look forward to seeing those moments on our brand new terrace at Hotel Gorinchem with our guests. When you can clearly see that they are having a wonderful evening, then everything falls into place. That is what I, my family and our great teams, do it for. On to an unforgettable summer!
