Visiting the Netherlands


I went on a visit in Holland to meet up with this bunch (my brothers) my mum, friends and family
I had lots of wonderful get together's complete with great Dutch food.


The city of Nijmegen  Above you see the weigh house from 1614


The city of Den Bosch


I walked a lot with my brother around my hometown and came along the castle of Hernen,


   along grazing horses


along farms

and lush grass land.



Impressions of a visit to Giethoorn, the Venice of the North. We hired a boat and got lost on the canals. We finally returned after 3 hours :)

Home sweet home

  1. What a wonderful occasion for you Marja, going home and meeting with your family and friends.
    My brother - sadly estranged - has lived in The Netherlands for years, preferring it to here, the UK.

    1. It is quite beautiful isn't it. Only too flat for me as I love the mountains here in NZ :)
      I did have a great time though
