Nieuweschans, The Netherlands - 21st December 2008

By: Marjolein


I visited a Celtic MidWinter Festival! Just half a year ago I went to the Midsummer festival! This festival is called Yule in Celtic.


They had lots of meat like Spare Ribs just like the last time!


There where guys playing bagpipes.


And you could also buy clothes, mostly Celtic and Gothic.


And the Dutch band Rapalje had a show again. They sang Celtic music in English, Irish and even Dutch. Even the Dutch dialect from Groningen called Groningen. It was really cool!

Merry Christmas!!

We went to the zoo today! It was the Noorder Dierenpark in Emmen.



I saw some prairiedogs again!







Gilbert was fan of the penguins, but they wouldn't look at him! How sad!


We also went to a part called the Waterfactory. They tought us all sorts of stuff about water and what happens in between it being in lakes an rivers and people drinking it.


Marjolein is planning a trip to another zoo in The Netherlands in January!

Groningen, The Netherlands - 27th December 2008

By: Marjolein


Today we had a cultural day; we went to the Museum of Groningen. They had an exibition of paintings from J. W. Waterhouse. He was a painter who lived in the end of the 19th and the begin of the 20th century. The exibition was called Enchanted by Women. And we where allowed to take photo's inside the museum, check it out!

This painting is called The Lady of Shallott. She is a woman from the legend of King Arthur. Waterhouse mostly painted women from legend and mythic stories. And Marjolein loves that kind of stories, so we didn't get out of the Museum soon haha.


This painting is also called The Lady of Shallott. This is Waterhouse is most famous painting and it has hung in the Tate Gallery in London for over a century but it made a trip to Groningen, that's so special!


I really liked this painting. It's called 'Lamia (on her knees)' and was painted in 1905.


On the website about J. W. Waterhouse this story is written beneath:

If questioning would make us wise no eyes would ever gaze in eyes; if all our tale were told in speech no mouths would wonder each to each.

Were spirits free from mortal mesh and love not bound in hearts of flesh no aching breasts would yearn te meet and find their ecstasy complete.

For who is there that lives and knows the secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need to thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?

Then seek not, the "if" and "Why" I love you now untill I die. For I must love because I live And life in me is what you give. - Bill Archer
