She picked this spot because it is so much fun! It’s called Beatrix and is located in The Netherlands, The Hague. The grass is the purest green I have ever seen, the waved curbs are pure iron with that little extra rust that gives them their edge, also.. rumour has it that it never rains and the sun is always there to lighten the path for you.
I hope you enjoy this edit and want to buy super hot blue valo’s with neon green wheels and vabelhaft shirts afterwards.
