Something typical Dutch : take a look at the skates she is wearing. They are not figure- or ice hockey skates. Most people in Holland have speed skates, and so did I. It's the best way to skate on the canals in Groningen.
As you saw on my page, there are a lot of sports you can do in Groningen like biking and canoeing. But besides that it is also a perfect spot to go skating.... when the weather permits it, that is.
Just once in a couple a years it is possible to skate on the canals. And when that happened, I always tried to go to Groningen to skate on the canals. In the picture you can see me skating on the canal of Loppersum (the village where I used to live).
