I’ve recently returned from my trip to The Netherlands where I performed at The National Military Tattoo with the wonderful people of The Dutch Pipes and Drums. My friend, fellow piper, and travel companion, Heather, is joining me today for the first time. Heather is tulip1014 on Ravelry.
Rotterdam Tattoo The Netherlands Military Tattoo
Our long time listeners may remember that I interviewed Pipe Major (Sir) Willie McVean and his wife Jose on Knitting Pipeline on Episode 47 in June 17, 2011.
I will be posting more photos on my personal blog, A Piper Knits, so you can follow me there if you like.

In this video you see the pipe band emerging from the mist and playing the sets.
We talk about food we enjoyed, such as stroopwafels. I found a place in the U.S. where you can buy them and have them shipped to you. I Love Stroopwafels.
