Visited Dee and Gerben in Spring in Amsterdam. Now they are back in Mirns – a good time to come over for a week and enjoy the quiet countryside.
Got another one of the less than 100€ Euro travel train tickets both ways. Early in the morning I got up and walked down to the bus station.
6:38 at the bus stop – not a nice time for me
7:13 in the train with a few croissants and coffee
7:56 in a new train – the other one broke down! After 20 minutes I can take any train not only the trains that are printed on my ticket. Great on the way back so you can catch a faster train. Does not help on the way to the Netherlands. The last train station is so small that there are only a few trains a day.
9:49 – along the Rhine river
8 seconds later
11:57 and some time to kill in Düsseldorf. It is very ugly next to the train station here. So I had a beer in the cold and walked back to catch the next train.
13:05 in the next train
14:37 and we are in the Netherlands since 4 minutes!
15:47 in the next train in Zwolle train station
Big sky with the church tower of Wirdum in the back
16:58 at Leuwarden train station
17:47 close to Wijtgaard in Friesland
The old part of Stavoren is build at the harbour. From the train station, you walk over the bridge and you are right in the centre. Somehow it is amazing how you can travel from a big city to nowhere with a few train rides. Still, I do not really like to ride the train. Hmmm.
View from the bridge
Walked down to the shore line to catch a view over the water
This is what I call a room with a view – if you have this room
The light towers mark the way for the ships to get to the harbour
Walked back to the city supermarket for some food. Gerben will pick me up from here.
2,19 € for a small bag of pimped toast bread?
There he is – Gerben with the Yellow Submarine
Close to Warns – the dike to the right
Most of the road is on the dike – great views!
A nice drive that is
Sunset at the house in Mirns
Nestled in a green corner
It comes with a little shed full of garden chairs and stuff
The garden towards the water in the day
Even more happy monkey
Beer o clock – waiting for the show
Now that is what I call great cinema
