    Der Nähe gelegene Ort Alkmaar ist dann unser nächstes Ziel. Hier parkieren wir im Ortskern und laufen ein wenig sie Gassen auf und ab. Ein wirklich schönes Örtchen, nur leider ist der Wind beißend und kalt, so dass wir uns nach einer knappen Stunde wieder ins Auto retten.Read more

    We caught the train from the airport to Alkmaar and found Erika waiting for us at the station. We walked through the beautiful town of Alkmaar to the Linquenda, where we will stay for the nights.

    Our 45th wedding anniversary today, we have a lovely Belgian breakfast before heading to our final destination of the trip, Amsterdam. It is very misty again as we set off but by 11am the sun is shining and around 12noon we arrive at the Dutch border. We are on the A9 and directly under the flight path into Schipol Airport, planes are flying in every couple of minutes. We arrive at our hotel in Alkmaar which is north of Amsterdam and we have to park in a car park a few minutes away. The friendly young women in charge at the hotel speak very good English and we have a cup of coffee with them before going to our room.
    Tonight is a shopping event in Alkmaar and we set out to see what's happening. There are lots of people walking around and even more cycling around. Tall people on large bikes, hundreds of bicycles parked all over the city, it seems strange to see people dressed up to go out and riding a bicycle. There are so many cafes and restaurants to choose from, many with outside heaters as although it's a lovely evening it is getting cooler all the time. The shops are open until 11pm tonight and the streets are lit up with fairy lights, there are musicians and singers everywhere. A great atmosphere and a fabulous place.

    It is quite cool this morning and after a good breakfast we pack up for the last time. We visit the Cheese Museum in Alkmaar which is really interesting and informative and we are given a couple of pieces of cheese to eat while we watch a film about the history of cheese-making in the Netherlands. We set off for the ferry in good time and make a detour to the coast, we have lunch and a walk in a place called Katwijk. Arriving at the ferry around 5pm, we are soon on board and in our cabin, we have a drink in the sunset lounge and then go into dinner around 7pm before it gets too busy. It has been a fantastic three weeks, we have stayed in so many different places it's hard to remember them all and we have travelled through eight different countries. Looking forward to getting back home tomorrow, we are due into Hull early so we should be back home in Scawby by 8.30amRead more

    Quelle magnifique ville, Alkmaar !
    Plein de canaux, plein de ponts, plein de maison typiques... On ne s'en lasse jamais.
    Autre plaisir dont je ne me lasse jamais : constater le nombre de vélo garés partout, partout, même tout autour de l'église. Je m'en veux de ne pas l'avoir pris en photo...Read more
