Schiermonnikoog, Netherlands – Typical houses

Travel Lane memory…. A fond one if I might add… Schiermonnikoog!!!! I remember how we walked the road of Schiermonnikoog… dreaming of what it would be like to live here!!! (Property prices was unbelievably high – or maby just in comparison to house prices in SA)…

These houses were small, quaint, inviting, colourful, old & left me wanting to live there (if only for a little while…). Without further ado I present to you a typical street view of the houses of Schiermonnikoog!!! 🙂

Drive-in Theatre Style…

I don’t know how many of you guys still have a good ol’ classic drive-in theatre?? 🙂 When our friends from the Netherlands were here for a visit a few weeks back, we thought that it would be fun to go & watch a movie at the drive-in theatre (you know… in stead of watching a movie at home…)!!! We were super surprised that they have never done this… They thought that it only happens in the movies… (or only in america!!!!) 😉

So, what was a regular idea for us, turned into something very unfamiliar (but enjoyable) to them!!! It was a great evening!!! 🙂

Our Netherland friends: Johan & Marieke !!!

If you haven’t visited the drive-in recently…. You have no idea what you’re missing out on!!! 😀 **

Amsterdam, Netherlands – What one expects!!!

Staying true to what one sees when you think of the buildings in Amsterdam… 🙂

I found it fascinating that buildings can be so crooked!!!! I’ll let the photo do the talking for this weeks Travel Lane memory!!! 🙂 **

Amsterdam Style!!!

It was taken December 2004 on the island, Schiermonnikoog!!!! Me & my mom visited our Netherland friends (Marieke & Marlies!!) for a few days & had a day trip to this small island North of the Netherlands. This is an authentic whale jaw – jaw-dropping right?? 😉 mind the pun!!! So awesome that it deserves this week’s spot for my Travel Lane journey!!!
