THIS WEEK

 

You might know that half of the country
of Holland was won from the sea. Still there is
a lot of water, and people have found ways to live with it, or
circumvent life without fins
or ones feet getting wet!

 

The animals created for water, have no care in the world!

 

How do people get around? Of course, there are boats. In only place in Holland though –
Giethoorn – people have a row boat by their
front door. Actually, this is the patio of
a lunch place, but it’s the same
for the residences in this town.

 

Some years ago, we had a day with a blogger (Wil Wouters) in Holland, who lived in a town (Krimpen aan de IJssel) at a river.

She wanted to show us the mills at Kinderdijk (more than 13, top), but  we needed to cross a wide body of water (too wide for a row boat)! She had bought a ticket for us, and here we stood … waiting for traffic to pass.

 

They made room for us. Then we went onto our means of transportation: bikes, people, cars, and even an ice-cream-bike!

 

Our turn, to go on the ferry to Kinderdijk! (image is a repost, but it is the actual ferry we went on). As you can see not only bikes, but also cars.

In my childhood I lived in Zeeland, which was a province full of peninsulas. By the time I was ten,
I went with the ferry by myself, to visit friends,
who lived “on the other side.”

Without knowing, this blogger had chosen something that had been a fun experience
in my childhood.

  1. It is my dream to visit Netherland someday. The photo of the windmill and the duck behind the grass looks so beautiful. Ferry rides are fun. I love them, the view and the cool breeze is always so refreshing.
