Simon and Marieke were so good to me on my visit to their home in The Hague. They took me to many interesting places. This canal is in the city of Leiden. Come on along and I'll show you some more of the sights...

Leiden was established in the early 1300's, many years before Columbus landed in America. The architecture is breathtaking and has so much character....details, details, details. This town is home to the oldest university in the Netherlands, also.

Dutch houses are very solid, the roofs are very steep, and the walls are thick. It gets pretty cold here in the winter. Read the story, HANS BRINKER AND THE SILVER SKATES, and you will know just how freezing it gets in the Netherlands.

There were many living situations at F.A.S.T. surf camp. Many wave riders drove their vans down to Scheveningen, near The Hague, as this village and former fishing center, has the best surf on the coast of the Netherlands.

Protect the sea, the ocean, and the river wherever you travel.
Take good care of the Earth and take a bag to the shore and pick up what shouldn't be there and dispose of it at home.

I love, love the beautiful bouquets. This bike made my heart full. I had to stop and take a better look and appreciate the innovative (that's a "Fancy Nancy" word which means "clever") way to bring beauty to the streets of Rotterdam. What's your opinion?

No grass shacks like Hawaii, this European beach town of Scheveningen had quaint and charming architecture. Everywhere I looked there was something interesting to see. I love flowers, as you probably already know, so walking around this seaside village was perfect for me!

My favorite way to travel....the rail. Traveling west and north, I am making my way via bus and train to the East Coast of England, and on to the Netherlands. (It looks like I might need to take a bath before I move on much farther.)
