    • Day 7

      Maastrich and Scheveningen

      September 7, 2023 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      First stop today was in Rotterdam. I wanted to take Laura to see Duivenvoordestraat where I was born. I was surprised to see that the entire block of apartments is gutted with no one living there. I suppose the plan is to do a restoration. We did a short walk in the area where my grandmother used to walk to do her shopping and so on.

      From there we drove to Massluis, where my cousin Ton and Cor are living. I have never been there to see their apartment. They recently did a renovation, and it is very nice. Ton had asked what we would like to do and I had suggested that we could have lunch in a local restaurant with some Dutch food on the menu. Instead, Ton made us a delicious pea soup and we ate lunch there.

      Following lunch we went on a long walk throughout the town to see the various points of interest. We also stopped at a waterfront restaurant where we had a cold beverage. Back at the apartment Ton served us a delicious Dutch baked good while we sat on his back rooftop patio.

      When we left Massluis we drove to Scheveningen, which is an Oceanside community near den Hague with a huge sandy beach, which is very popular among the Dutch and other Europeans. It has numerous restaurants on the beach, as well as a large casino. We walked quite a distance along the beach and then back to where we had parked the car.

      To end the day we drove to Amersfoort, which is a very picturesque Dutch town. I had hoped to arrive before dark so that Laura could see the town and the plan was also to find a place to grab some dinner. Unfortunately, we arrived too late and it was dark. However, I did find a place that served Bami. So, that was our dinner!

    • Day 6

      Mittagspause in Maassluis

      September 2, 2023 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      Man würde Maassluis wahrscheinlich niemals erwähnen, so klein und unscheinbar entwickelt sich die Stadt zwischen Den Haag und Rotterdam, wenn nicht genau hier die vielen notwendigen Schleusen der Kanäle und Wasserstraßen wären.

      Maassluis besitzt Wasser, reichlich Wasser, kaum mehr als 33.000 Einwohner und eine ansprechende Altstadt. Seit 1367 ist Maassluis für sein "Schiffe schleppen" weltberühmt. Wer ins Landesinnere der Niederlande reisen wollte oder wieder zurück in den Häfen Den Haags oder Rotterdam oder hinaus auf die Weltmeere musste und muss noch heute durch das Schleusensystem bei Maassluis hindurch.

      Wir haben inzwischen Hunger, folgen einem Tipp von Tripadvisor und kehren im „Monsieur Paul“ ein. Wir sitzen ganz gemütlich auf einem umgebauten Boot auf dem Kanal, mitten in der Altstadt bei typisch holländischer Aussicht. Es ist chillig eingerichtet, der Service zuvorkommend und freundlich, das Essen ausgesprochen lecker und preiswert. So geht Urlaub!
