BRB

So I was offline for a while, but I’m not sure whether I want to continue with my blog or not. And another question: do I want to write my blogs in Dutch or in English?

For me, Dutch is way easier to write down than English, but if I write in English, more people will understand what I am writing about.

Wednesday was my birthday and I received the most beautiful gift I could ever wish for: a Sony camera. It has 20.4 mexapixel and more technical features that I probably don’t know about. A feature I do know about is the Wifi en NFC chip in it, which sends photos to my smartphone by just holding my smartphone next to my camera (say what?!).

I feel there is a piece of me missing when I don’t write stuff now and then, but I feel guilty if I don’t write anything for a couple of days. I feel there is some kind of obligation to posting stuff and I want to get rid of that, I just don’t know how.

Maybe I have to stop making such a big deal out of it and just start writing about things that are on my mind and I would like to share with you. I think that’s the deal. So hold on, there is more coming.

 

5 PLACES YOU SHOULD GO WHILE VISITING HOLLAND

As allround Dutchie I think I am qualified to tell you the places you should visit while staying in Holland. It’s not a large country; you drive from one end to the other within 3,5 hours minimum. Of course you should visit Amsterdam and the city of parliament: The Hague, but I want you to show other places that are worth seeing in Holland.

The shore of Zeeland

One of the southern provinces of Holland is Zeeland. If you translate it, it means Sealand. Which will do because Zeeland is famous because of miles of shores and you won’t find any large cities in this province. The shore is naturally and the people who live there (‘Zeeuwen’)are very on their own but still hospitable.

De Hoge Veluwe, Drenthe

When you travel more northern and to the other side of Holland, you’ll strand in National Park: De Hoge Veluwe. This park (1100 km²) is a forest-rich ridge of hills. The park also includes a sand drift and there are many wild animals who live in this beautiful part of Holland.

Celebrating ‘Carnaval’ in North Brabant

First of all, the province of North Brabant is not in the northern part of Holland, it’s in the south (no joke)! On the 11th of November the people who live there (Brabanders) start their own festival, which lasts until the end of February. Especially in February the Brabanders go on the streets with handmade cars with a theme, as you can see in the picture above. Everyone comes to this parade dressed in style of a theme they choose, which doesn’t matter.

Traditionallly this festival is a feast, because it was the last oppurtunity to wolf before the lent term began. But I don’t think only one Brabander will know this… 😉

Markthal in Rotterdam

One of the biggest ports of the world is located in this little country. Rotterdam is not only a port, but also a beautiful and vital city, which is worth a visit. Once you’re there, you really have to go to the Markthal (Market Hall). This Hall contains several stores and stalls. Beside the shopping oppurtunity you have to look up, because the ceiling is the largest art work in the world.

Palace Het Loo, Apeldoorn

This old palace (<1684) was inhabited by several members of the Dutch royal family, but since 1984 it’s open for visitors as a museum. You can walk hours in the garden after you sniffed up some Dutch history in the palace itself. This palace is nearby the National Park De Hoge Veluwe.

Did you visit some great places in Holland? I’d love to hear from you.

I SEE HUMANS, BUT NO HUMANITY

After I posted my first article yesterday (this one), I realised that the people in Paris must have been traumatized. It’s amazing and wonderful how countries all over the world show support by lighting up statues and buildings and lighting candles.

But what about all other countries like Iraq, Pakistan and India? We hear about bombings every week and everyone continues with life. If we light up statues, buildings and candles for Paris, we should do that every time a country gets hit by terrorists. That probably means we can light up everything 24/7.

Why is the world so upset about the attacks in Paris, but strain no muscle by hearing about the bombings in non-western countries?
