Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!
Hmm ! The problem with writing blog posts retrospectively is that if the day in question was a long time ago, there’s a possibility I can’t remember it at all.
We began the final day of our holiday in Ghent, somehow expecting it to be like Bruges. It isn’t.
So we went to Dunkirk instead. Dunkirk is also nothing like Bruges, but at least it has seaside.
Rather than mooching around in Holland we decided we’d take the girls to see Brussels’ best known landmark. I’d never been there on a sunny day in the summer.
A boat trip around a lake created when the Brouwersdam was built in the 70’s and 80’s, followed by a short drive to gain a different perspective on the same lake.
A morning out at an enthusiasts museum of the Rotterdam Tram Company, followed by an afternoon of geocaching around Ouddorp.
Well if you’re staying at Center Parcs and you’re in Holland, it’s practically mandatory to hire some bikes and go exploring the Dutch countryside.
An afternoon in the lovely little town of Hellevoetsluis, followed by walking past a few caches to reunite with the girls at the wonderfully named Quackgors Beach.
Somehow the Netherlands has ended up with a debate about which city is its capital. Is it Amsterdam or is it Den Haag ? To avoid confusion, we went to both. On the same day.
