What I did
Enjoyed English hospitality
Well Ben got back save and well from his sojourn across to England,where he visited some old friends in Manchester, and tried out some English pints. He did a excursion of Ehtihad Stadium, homeground of Manchester City soccerclub. Very impressive!! He had a great few days, always nice to catch up with friends on the other side of the world.
On Wednesday we said our goodbyes to our Finnish friends Reijo and Soille, after a week in Holland they had to get back to work. We had a good time together and saw a lot of Holland in those few days. Yesterday, Gerry, Sonja, Linda and I went to a place called Haarzuylen near Utrecht, In that little village stands the most beautiful castle in the world. The Haar.
As it comes into view, you just go wow! They began with the building of this castle in the 1200's.
The gardens around the castle are just beautiful. We were able to get a guided tour through the castle, They showed us a lot of the interior, like the kitchen, bedrooms, diningroom, ballroom and massive hallways with unbelievable furniture, paintings and wall tapestrys more than 500 years old, again a day to remember.
We will see what tomorrow brings?
Today we are leaving Oldebroek, going back towards where it all began " Rotterdam "
