Alkmaar, the Netherlands - 22nd March 2008

By: Eryah

Hello!

A new TV arrived today. We came home from Den Helder and while we were eating the doorbell rang. It was the mail man. We saw a big envelope. What could be in it?

It is a big yellow mouse! His name is Marcello.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/marcello002.jpg

He hasn't eat so we all decided to give him a slize of our pizza.
After dinner we sit together at the couch and talk about everything. It's great to have an other friend here!

After that we went to Bergen to see animals. A terrible accident happened there.
Marcello wants to get on a picture with a ostrich. We all didn't know this was gonna be his last minute with us. Suddenly the ostrich took Marcello out of Eva her hand. We tried everything to get him back but it was to late.
He died bravely.
Rest in peace little Marcello mousse!

This is the ostrich that took Marcello from us:

Hello!

After we get over our big lost we went to the Ruinechurch in Bergen.
This picturesque ruin church in Bergen once was the biggest church in Noord-Holland. From the 16th century church there is only a ruin left now, because the Beggars started a fire here. Only the choir of the church was rebuilt, so from the original church you can now only see the ruins.
In the village Bergen in Noord-Holland there are many beautiful old houses situated around the old village church.

We really wanna do something active after the coffee, music and watch tv so we played hide and seek.

Alkmaar, the Netherlands - 29th March 2008

By: Eryah

Hello!

Today we got a little bit bored so we went on a search in the house.
Snowy and Palmeke found some real nice gnomes and asked them what we could do. I asked it to a real nice lady.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/april005.jpg
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/april006.jpg

The gnomes and lady told us that if we want we can go to a whole other world. We didn't understand what they are meaning with that so we wanna know more about that.
They all pointed to a spot in the room.
Are they joking?? They pointed at a book-case. We decided to go in the book-case because maybe it had a secret door or something.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/april001.jpg

We tried to find it but it didn't worked. We still had no idea were to find that other world. We watched all the books and found many books of Stephen King.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/april004.jpg

We decided that we wanna read something but Stephen King is to scary for us with his stories about good and evil and clowns who do nasty things with childrens.
Suddenly we understand what the gnomes and lady try to tell us. When you read a book your in a whole other world!
Thank you dear gnomes and nice lady!
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/april003.jpg
Here we are reading about Appie. When Eva was a child she read this books all the time. They are very old and you can't find them anymore in the stores. Maybe in a store were they sell old books.

So now we are in a world about Appie. When you read his stories it's almost as if you are with him and his friends.
Hoe great is that?

While we were feeding the ducks two beautifull black swans come our way. They made such magical sounds.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/alkmaarderhout007.jpg

Their were a lot of other funny animals. Unfortunately the animal farm wasn't open so we couldn't get in but we can see and feed the animals from behind the gate.

Alkmaar, the Netherlands - 5th April 2008

By: Eryah

Hello!

Today we asked Eva to show us two typical dutch sites. We start with a mill.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken009.jpg
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken018.jpg
Here i am in front of the Molen van Piet. Actually it called Molen de Groot but the family Piet lives here for a lot of years so it became the Molen van Piet. This is the last mill you can find in the town centre.

After that we went to a coffeeshop. It was pretty exciting to see this. I didn't smoke, don't worry, because i was a little bit scared of it. Eva told us you get a strange feeling when you do this.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken004.jpg
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken005.jpg
When we took the pictures we start walking back to the car but a man stormed out of the coffeeshop and start screaming to us why the **** we were making pictures of him. Luckely Eva was calm and explain to the man why we did it. He said some nasty things and walked back into the coffeeshop. We were all very glad we didn't smoke, because if this is the result...

After that we wanna do something with less risk.
We went to the Big church in Alkmaar.

During building the largest medieval church in Alkmaar, the church was already called the big church, because of its size. The big church is not only the largest and highest church in Alkmaar, but also the church which trough the centuries, stood most and called the jewel of the city. Originally the church was dedicated to Saint Laurens. That’s why, for centuries, the church is called The Saint Laurenschurch.

The church was probably designed by architect Anthonius Keldermans (Belgium) (1440-1512)

Beside Anthonius Keldermans brother, also his son was involved in the disign of the church, in which 26 freestanding columns support the roof. The Saint Laurens church is a basilica,

The outside walls rest on a fundation which is just below the ground. Built in the Brabant’s gothic style, which is bigger and more massive in its form than the French gothic. The building is 35 meters high and has a cross length of 85x56 meters. The outside walls rest on a one meter broad foundation which is just below thethe ground, and gradually becomes broader to a depth of tree meters. The last resauration of in-and exterieur was accomplished in 1996.

The large saint Laurens church counts two, world famous organs: Van Covelens organ (also called choir organ) and it VanHagerbeer/Schnitger or large organ. The choir organ descends from 1511 and has been placed against the northern wall of the church. The last restoration of this old, still playable, organ in the Netherlands, was completed in the year 2000. In 1636 arose the idea for the construction of a large organ in the church. Several organ builders have worked on it, but in 1645 Jacobus Caltus van Hagerbeer completed the large organ. Jacob Van Campen devised the organ cupboard and in 1643  Caesar Van Everdingen got the task to paint the doors of the organ cupboard with the ‘triomfe van den Coninck Saul’. This painting belongs to his first large work. Above the organ the painter Romeyn de Hooghe painted in baroque striking, (‘de deugd, die de ondeugd verplettert’)" virtue crushing the vice". From 1723 up to 1725 the large organ was restored and extended by Frans Caspar Schnitger. In course of time there have been several restorations on this organ.

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken019.jpg
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken020.jpg

After that we watched the St. Joseph Church in Alkmaar.
This church was put in use in 1910. Designed by famous church builders and students of PJH Cuypers, the Margry brothers. The church is built in neo-gothic style, which shows by the way the towers are placed and by the arched roofs.

The church is placed beautifully and is in possession of wonderful stained glass windows. The statue of Christ has been placed in 1948, in memory of Alkmaar war-victims. Their names are placed on a memorial plaque on the churches wall.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b65/Eryah/toyvoyagers/kerken015.jpg

Because of all the siteseeing we get hungry. Eva took us to the Burger King!

Here i am again. A new TV arrived this evening.
We were sitting on the couch wondering who can be in that envelop.

Suddenly the TV kicked his helmet out the envelop. We were frightened to death!

But he didn't mean to scare us so he jumped out of the envelope to comfort us.

He's such a funny guy!
