River Rhine

 A little trip to river Rhine in Germany
A few weeks ago I went with a friend for a daytrip to Germany, we live 10 minutes from the border.
We drove to the city of Koblenz and from there on we followed the river Rhine. At Kaub we crossed the river by ferry.

Little castle in the river.

After this we went to Rudersheim, a small town, full of tourists.
Lovely houses

After a cold drink and some delicious pie we crossed the river again and go to Oberwesel.

Town hall


The statue of Siren Lorelei, she sits on a cliff above the Rhine, combing her golden hair. Distracting shipman with her beauty and song, which caused many of them to crash on the rocks.

Port of Rotterdam

Last saterday I went  on a trip with a friend to Rotterdam. We made a boattrip through the harbour of Rotterdam.
The boat was named after a the Dutch seafarer and explorer Abel Tasman (the boat on the right).

We started at the Erasmusbridge, it's nickname is The Swan.

At the front a statue, on the left a cruiseship of the Holland America line named 'the Rotterdam'.

Cargo in the harbour

'The Rotterdam' almost ready to leave the harbour of Rotterdam on his way to Norway for a cruise.

A fireboat salutes the cruiseship as it departs.

It was a great day.

I got my first car, a Volkswagen, when I was twenty years old. The car itself was eleven.

After two years I got this red one, I drove it for ten years, I'm still missing it!

This one was spotted by my aunt and uncle in Germany.

A few weeks ago Marieken and I visited The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.
One of the artworks was this Volkswagen Beetle, created by Surasi Kusolwong

In the car you can watch a little movie.

Last week

Last year in july I wrote a blog about the 4days marches passing my house.

Also once a year 14.000 lady's runs The Marikenloop for 5 or 10 km.

There are lots of walks and runs in our City.

This lady was the fastest

I won this book: Cat sense.
Makes me happy.

Rolf too fast for the camera.

Last sunday we (Marieken and I) make a little trip to Zwolle.
All about that trip you can read on her blog.

Here some pictures of the most lovely shop I had ever seen.

 In this shop the famous "Zwolse balletjes'' (small balls from Zwolle)
I never tasted them, I wanted to buy them, but unfortunately the store was closed. 

Around the center of the city is a canal.
In the past it was for defending the city.
