Ukraine food – New restaurant opened at Kerklaan in Groningen

We went to the newly opened restaurant with Ukrainian food at Kerklaan in Groningen. It’s just a minute away from the Noorderplantsoen, so a great location when going for a walk in the park and wanting to experience some authentic, East-European cuisine. Here are some of the impressions of the starters and main courses that we ordered.

Holubtsie, Deruny.. and more. Lekker! I feel particularly tempted to try Varenyky next time.

We will surely be back soon 🙂

OnlineGroningen.Com – Reactivated

Hallo folks, guess who is back? 🙂

After moving to Amsterdam in 2017 to follow my career at ING headquarters as an agile transformation expert and coach agile way of working, I decided to take the opportunity that the hybrid mode working brought (as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic) and in April 2022 I moved back from Amsterdam to Groningen to my beloved Oranjebuurt, where my Groningen-story started back in 2004.

I work in Amsterdam but remotely from Groningen and I travel once a week but most of the time I am back in the town because.. ‘er gaat niets boven Groningen’.

Thus, after more than 5 years of silence on OnlineGroningen.Com due to Amsterdam dedication, I decided to reactivate the website and related accounts to continue with delivering on the purpose that I once have set, and that is ‘to empower internationals of Groningen to connect, learn, exchange experiences and stay up to date with news and developments from Groningen and the surroundings’.

Happy to be back in Groningen, happy to connect again. Stay tuned!



Ice Sailing in Groningen? Why not!

While scrolling through the social media this morning I came across a video posted by Sikkom. A group of guys ice sailing on Paterswoldsemeer near Groningen.

It’s great living in a city surrounded by people that inspire and motivate you every single day by doing something fabulous, something spectacular. Ice sailing on a frozen lake near Groningen with speed reaching over 75km/h. Isn’t that spectacular?
