May 8, 2014 - Visiting some of the eleven historic towns of the Friesland

Despite the weather being iffy we decided to headed north to visit some of the historic small towns/villages of the Friesland area. Our first stop was the small village of Sloten encircled by water with a picturesque central canal. At the far end on the bastion sat the De Kaai windmill. Our second stop was the village of Hindeloopen which juts into the Ijsselmeer which as well as the usual canals and quaint houses had a massive leisure harbour and a church which had some graves of British and Commonwealth airmen who perished in the Zuider...

Jun 3, 2006 - Freisland and the Zaan

We took a trip over the massive dam that stops the Netherlands from being flooded, into Friesland in the north east of Holland and walked along a Dutch beach at Harlingen. Though just turned summer we were both decked out in jumpers, jackets and scarves so we didn't feel like swimming but walked around the harbour town of Harlingen instead on the eve of the Socceroos friendly with the orange-clad pansies of the Netherlands. We drove back to Amsterdam to watch the match in an Aussie bar (every Euro city seems to have one!) but visited the...
