    Oude Wettering

    June 22 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Today we started our bike barge adventure travelling Amsterdam to Brugge. We were expecting to be two Aussies out of a group of maybe 30 cyclists from all over the world - we are two of 11 Aussies...and that is the whole group! They are a lovely group so it should be a great eight days together. We only travelled a short distance before stopping at our first night's destination - Oude Wettering. On this short trip we went through many lochs and raised bridges - it was Saturday and half of Amsterdam were out enjoying the water - such a relaxed lifestyle here. We went for a practice 12km ride after dinner just to iron out any bicycle issues before the bigger ride tomorrow. It was an uneventful but pretty ride, everyone happy with their bikes and keen for tomorrow.
    The boat we are on is very comfortable and the crew of three are welcoming and friendly.

    Gouda

    June 23 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We walked around Gouda after our dinner tonight. Gouda is known for its namesake cheese and seasonal cheese market, regularly held on the medieval Markt square. Anchoring the square is the 15th-century town tall, a Gothic building with red and white shutters. Also on the square is the 17th-century Goudse Waag, once a cheese-weighing station and now home to the Gouda Cheese Museum.Read more

    Kinderdijk Netherlands

    June 24 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today started with a short sail before disembarking for a short ride to Kinderdijk famous for its iconic 18th-century windmills. Its water-management network features 19 mills and 3 pumping stations, plus dykes and reservoirs that control flooding in the polder (low-lying land). Waterways, footpaths and bike trails crisscross the area, leading to the main visitors centre where we got to go inside a preserved working windmill. This was our main stop today as we had about 50kms to ride by 3:30pm to where our boat was waiting to set sail again to reach our final destination for the night - Willemstad.Read more

    Kinderdiijk

    October 8 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    The ship docked at Dordrecht and we bussed it to Kinderdiijk for a guided tour of the windmills.

    These are World Heritage Listed working windmills dating back to the middle ages. Very interesting to see how they managed the water in and out of the dykes. Even got to climb the 3 floors inside a working mill...

    Last night of the cruise tonight...the cruise director (Leonard) presented a slideshow of his photos during the cruise...very entertaining. At the final dinner, we gave our favourite waiters a gift of Aussie Stubby coolers...not sure they understood what they were though...😂

    Gouda, Netherlands

    June 23 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Destination Gouda! A 45km ride from Oude Wetering! We set off at 9am and arrived at 3pm. Our first ride of the trip was wonderful. It was a perfect day around 27°-30° sunny and blue sky. We had a very relaxing ride stopping often to take in the beautiful surroundings.

    Delft - Amsterdam

    June 20 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Today we took an hour's train journey to Delft, where we visited Royal Delft, the only remaining, original Delftware manufacturer from the 17th century. Donna and I toured the Royal Delft museum and factory while Alan and Wayne explored the city centre. Both choices were enjoyed respectively. Donna and I still had time to see the beauty of the city centre and all the wonderful canals and bridges along the way. The square of Delft is called 'de Markt' and the day we were there was market day so there was cheese, fish, vegetables, bread, nuts, and other foods as well as clothing, leather bags, bicycle accessories, electronic gadgets and much much more.
    The Nieuwe Kerk, a Protestant church is located on the Square opposite to the City Hall  Stadhuis), a Renaissance style building. We climbed the Church Tower's 376 stairs for fantastic views of Delft. Around the market, pubs and open-air terraces are plentiful and they are very friendly. We loved Delft so much, we stayed for dinner before returning to Amsterdam on the train.

    Große Ereignisse ...

    February 1 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    ... werfen ihre Schatten voraus, aber dazu erzähle ich am Sonntag mehr. Wenn man's zu früh ausplaudert, wird's nicht wahr. 😉

    Wo sind wir gelandet? In dem kleinen, typisch holländischen Örtchen Brielle. Die Stadt liegt hübsch von Wasser umgeben und hat einen kleinen Hafen ⛵, niedliche Gässchen und ein lekker Steakhaus.

    Davon, dass hier mal 19 katholische Mönche hingerichtet wurden, merkt man nichts. Ist ja auch schon knapp 500 Jahre her. 😁

    Brielle ... find ik mooi. 😍

    Sonnenuntergang am Meer

    February 25 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Kathrin und Arne machten sich von Aachen aus auf den Weg nach Holland. Mama und Vali fuhren gegen Mittag in Trier los und erreichten gegen 17:00 Uhr das Feriendomizil.
    Das Haus macht einen einfachen, aber guten Eindruck. Drei Schlafzimmer im Obergeschoss und ein großer Raum mit Küche und Wohnzimmer im Erdgeschoss. Direkt am Garten fließt ein kleiner Bach vorbei.
    Kurz nach unserer Ankunft gingen wir sofort los zum Strand. Wir trafen auf einen riesigen, breiten Sandstrand, der (bei einer wärmeren Wassertemperatur) zum Baden einlädt und schauten uns den wunderschönen Sonnenuntergang an.

    I'm walking on sunshine...

    February 26 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Nachdem Mama und Vlora eine Stunde den Strand erkundet hatten, genossen wir ein umfangreiches Frühstück. Heute fand in unserem Ort ein Wochenmarkt statt, den wir am Morgen erkundeten. Am Mittag nutzten wir das gute Wetter zum Grillen. Lecker! Am Nachmittag fuhren wir zu einer bekannten Ziegenfarm, bei der wir das Melken der Ziegen beobachten konnten. Vor Ort wurde aus der gewonnenen Milch Käse hergestellt, den man im Farmshop erwerben konnte.
    Den Tag ließen wir mit einem erneuten Strandspaziergang bei Sonnenuntergang ausklingen.

    A Seal

    February 27 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Heute morgen besuchten wir die Robben-Auffangstation in Stellendam und lernten so einige Fakten über den Lebensraum der Robben und die Verschmutzung der Meere durch Müll und Mikroplastik.
    Am Mittag gönnten wir uns Burger, Fish & Chips und/oder Frikandel in einem Restaurant am Strand. Anschließend schlenderten wir am Meer entlang.
    Auch am Abend suchten wir erneut den Strand auf, um die letzten Sonnenstrahlen des Tages zu genießen.
