Taking a river cruise in Europe has been up there on our bucket list for a while now. And with the rise in popularity when it comes to cruising around Europe, we had to talk to Mikkel and Dan from Sometimes Home all about it. Join us as we discuss cruising around Belgium and The Netherlands on a small, boutique-hotel style cruise ship and chat about activities, food, and more!

From tasty fries in Belgium to the lovely and immense tulip fields in The Netherlands, indulge your springtime wanderlust when it comes to exploring hidden gems all while cruising.
