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!!! 🙂

Reflections of Schiermonnikoog

Since the day that I took this photo, it has been one of my favourites!!!! I think the reason for this is because the clarity of the reflections was completely by accident!!! It came out much better than I could have ever anticipated!!! & is thus one of my very favourite Travel Lane memories!!! 😀

I had quite a busy weekend – but it was fun!!! Can’t wait to start processing a few of the photos that I took so that I can share them with you!!! Thank you for popping by my blog… even over the weekend I had quite a few visitors!!! It is much appreciated – I really hope it can continue!!!! 🙂 **

Whale Jaw on Schiermonnikoog!!!

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!!!
