While there are folks who want to start the year in warm climates to enjoy a good swim, these are not the only spots to start the year in your swim suit and sandals.
Despite low temperatures, thousands of Dutch start the year in their swimwear, ready to dive into the sea at rather cold temperatures. After their swim, they warm back up again with some hot chocolate, ron and snert, a particularly thick and hearty pea soup.
This tradition, which started in 1960, brought more than 50.000 brave souls in 2015 in their swimsuits and traditional Christmas hat, but in orange tones, as is we are in Holland after all.
Warm or cold, put your TARIFAs to use in 2015. It’s always summer somewhere!
