Being based in the Netherlands, we want to pay tribute to this country and the North Sea region more broadly. Sure, the North Sea does not always bring pleasant weather, as you know if you’ve already cycled against the wind and rain. However, this cold and grey sea has been a source of inspiration to many artists and writers in the countries surrounding it. This month, we propose 7 great reads that showcase this region’s rich cultural heritage and history and take you on tour from the UK to the Netherlands and a range of Nordic countries.
