The Netherlands: Boerensport (Activity)

Boerensport: Farmers Sport (in my own translation)

This actually happened around May 2016.

So what is this Boerensport I’m talking about?!! It was our team building day. The organizers did not tell us what are we going to do at that day.  All we knew was that we have to wear old clothes, shoes and be ready to be active.

We went to a place named Nieuw Vennep.  It is an almost an hour drive from our place. Upon arriving to the said location, all we saw was a farm land with no visibility of what we are going to do. It was not so hot that day, some of us wore jackets to keep us warm from the open field. Then we realized and saw on the welcome board that we are going to do Boerensport.

To be honest, I did not know what to expect or even do. I have never been or did mud sport. So I just accepted the fact that we have roll around, swim and test our agility and power on doing this very challenging game.

I never knew that it would be a funny and nice day for all of us!

So here’s to our action shots!

 

 

 

 

 

Hollandse Nieuwe Haring World Record

Woohoo! So, yes… We are now a record holder of the Hollandse Nieuwe Haring World Record! It is where 1500 people ate “Haring” raw fish at the same time.  This event was held last 19th of June 2015.

Haring Raw Fish with onions! Typical dutch food.

We are happy to be a part of it and we are proud to say that me and my husband holds a title of a world record! Relationship goal met!

This is the video of the countdown and of course the eating time!  🙂
