Wall of Fame - Travel Snapshot of The Month - Groningen, The Netherlands

Ah the darling buds of May are upon us....that means the start of longer, warmer days and when the world becomes more colourful up here in the Northern Hemisphere.  For May, the tulip fields will now begin to bloom across the smooth, flat lands among the churning Windmills of Holland.

So here's a snap of a White Dutch Yak I befriended streaked with European sunshine wandering among the windmills with its herd during my explorations of the Dutch Province of Groningen....

Have a good month 

Peace :)

'About The Time' ...The Quirks of Amsterdam and The Cat Boat!




'Yarr, I was riding past to verk along de Singel and stopped outside de Oude Lutherse Kerk and looked at zis canal boot and thought....hey zat boot is full of kats!'


A canal 'boot' full of cats!....meaning 'boat' in Dutch that is, said my strong accented dutch guide.... 
I'd been staying at the friendly Shelter Hostel right in the heart of the 'City of Diamonds' and took the opportunity to join their free guided walking tour of Amsterdam on a gloriously light but chilly Friday morning in the core of wintertime in The Netherlands.  Funny enough as cold it was for this chick from Blighty, Amsterdam was experiencing its mildest winter for many years.....only - 6 C. Brrrr.
