After my stroke, I could sit and stare at nothing for hours at NRC and Hopper. It was also a place for good conversations with friends. Great acoustics, great coffee, great carrot cake – my comfort food. And I still like to sit on the bench on the Parkkade on the Maas River near Parkheuvel restaurant. The view is breathtaking and at its most beautiful at golden hour when the sun is reflected in the water. There, it’s easy to put your misery into perspective. And uh... My secret tip is the historic Schoonoord private garden on Kievitslaantje in the Scheepvaartkwartier. My Zen place.
