    Lelystad

    October 10 in the Netherlands

    Lelystad sits on the edge of the Ijsselmeer; a vast lake formed by cutting off the mouth of a fjord with the Afsluitdijk dam and causeway. The fjord is also dissected by a further low dam, the 27km long Houtribdijk, behind which sits another lake, the Markermeer. We are in one of the 4 allocated van bays in a long carpark running adjacent to the Ijsselmeer, although we can't see it because of the tall dyke separating us from the water. It is a hot day but we spend most of it in the van organising appointments for when we visit the UK at the end of this month. Will does take a break to cool off in the lovely swimming area over the dyke. It has a sandy beach and although we know the water has long been cut off from the sea, it still seems strange that it is fresh water and not saline.

    Next door to us is an old Belgian motorhome with a sticker advertising 'Max & Felix animal hotel'. We are sure we've seen it somewhere before, perhaps on our travels in Belguim last November. After a while we hear a scrabbling of claws on laminate and a couple emerge holding 5 dogs on leads, 3 of them pitbulls! How they manage them in the confined space is beyond us, but come dinner time there is an almighty ruckus of growling and shouting from within. The tension of all 7 inhabitants is obvious. Later they emerge once again but the whippet, who has been let off the lead, sees something and begins to bark, setting off the other four dogs. The people shout at them and drag them back to the van, although it takes a massive effort to hold on to the three pitbulls straining at their leads and the handlers seem scared they'll get loose. We make sure they aren't out whenever we take Poppy!

    Another van pulls into one of the allocated bays but a further seven site themselves elsewhere in the car park. The large bins at the entrance are locked shut and the others are over full. It is a struggle to keep the bluebottles out of the van. In the late afternoon a motorbike school sets out cones and riders drive their bikes up and down the car park. We are sure if we'd explored the surrounding area there would be plenty of positive things to remember about Lelystad, but as it was, it didn't rank highly among the places we've stayed so far.

    Day 7 - Barcelona Cathedral

    November 3, 2017 in the Netherlands

    The Cathedral of the Holy Cross is the church of Barcelona's Archbishop. It sits on an elevated piece of land in the Berri Gothic district. The sìte where the church sits now was also the location of a Roman temple, a mosque and later a 1st century church destroyed by the Moors. Constuction of the present church began in 1298 under King Jaume II. War and plagues slowed construction and the main building was only completed in 1460. Work continued with the gothic facade being completed in 1889. The architecture has touches of gothic, medieval and renaissance.

    The church is 93m long, 40m wide and 28m high in the central nave. Within the Cathedral there is one nave and behind the alter there are 15th century stained glass windows, the adjoining church cloister dates back to the 14th century. I have several pics for you to enjoy including the pipe organ, (one of my fav things) the magnificent ceilings and the 15th century stained glass

    Groningen city

    May 4, 2017 in the Netherlands

    Efter att ha övernattat vid hotellet behövdes det arbetas lite då det var månadsbryt på jobbet. Hotellets frukostmatsal fungerade fint som kontor. Sedan bar det av mot Groningen för lite stadsvandring i duggregn.
    Vid halv tre satte vi oss igen i husbilen för att åka några mil till Almere, där vi nu fricampar utanför en restaurang vid vattnet.Read more

    Ankunft am Ijselmeer

    June 17 in the Netherlands

    Nach einem Zwischenstop bei T. Helga haben wir gestern die niederländische Grenze überschritten und waren bei dem großen Freizeitmarkt Obeling shoppen. Das Angebot ist unglaublich, aber wir waren brav und blieben zweistellig.😊
    Heute verbringen wir den Tag im Hafen von Urk am Ijsrlmeer.

    Ketelmeer

    May 20, 2009 in the Netherlands

    Bei dem Versuch, aus dem durch die Ijssel erreichten Ketelmeer in Richtung Zwarte Meer zu kommen, stellen wir fest, daß diese schmale Rinne in welcher das Segelboot fährt, Ramsdiep heißt und der einzige Weg ist, unter einer Brücke durchzukommen die auch für uns zu niedrig ist. Also wieder die ganze Strecke zurück...Read more

    Biddinghuizen ice skating rink

    December 27, 2016 in the Netherlands

    My cousin suggests ice skating at the 3km (2 mile) long artificial outdoor skating track at Biddinghuizen. How can I say “no”? I love ice skating and want to catch up with my cousin so, despite the two hour drive each way, we drive across Holland to Velonice at Biddinghuizen.

    I’ve only skated two or three times in my life. Once was on a small rink in the snow in Warsaw last year. Before that I ice skated once or twice on indoor rinks as a child (25+ years ago). But I love the sport – possibly because it’s so far removed from sweaty subtropical life as you can get.

    We skate three laps of the rink. It’s like magic to be outdoors in the near-perpetual sunset that glows yellow around us. The air is crisp. The speed skaters in training zip past in blurs. The children slate better than me. And I get to catch up with my cousin.

    Fernsehgeschichte der 90er

    May 5 in the Netherlands

    Von 1993 bis 1998 entstand hier die Fernsehserie „Flodder“. Überwiegend wurde im und auf dem Studiogelände im Bolderweg 22 in Almere gedreht. Von 1999 bis 2002 stand hier das erste „Big Brother“ Haus. Nach 4 Staffel wurde das Gelände nicht wieder für Fernsehproduktionen benutzt. Heute ist hier ein Recycling - Unternehmen ansässig.Read more

    Am Yachthafen von Lelystad (NL)

    August 2 in the Netherlands

    Unser erster Stopp in Holland ist am Yachthafen von Lelystad. Die Sanitäranlagen werden vermutlich die nobelsten auf unserer ganzen Reise gewesen sein. Ein schicker Campingplatz, nur eben für Bootsfahrer.

    Achtung, fertig, los!

    May 24, 2017 in the Netherlands

    Wir sind erfolgreich in unser Abenteuer gestartet! Dank Mathias und Daniela haben wir zum ersten Mal den Family-Room am Flughafen Zürich bemerkt. Was für eine praktische Erfindung. Matteo hat seinen ersten Flug gut gemeistert und wir sind samt allen Gepäckstücken in Amsterdam gelandet - eine seltene Erfahrung für uns :).

    Nachdem wir in der Eingangshalle unsere Velos zusammengesetzt hatten lernten wir, dass der Amsterdamer Flughafen nur Drehtüren hat. Also mit Schwung nach draussen und ab auf die Veloautobahn (gibt's wohl nur in Holland). Nun haben wir schon unsere ersten 50 km bei wunderschönem Wetter inkl Sonnenbrand hinter uns und freuen uns auf die kommenden Kilometer...
