Warffum, The Netherlands - 28th June 2008

By: Marjolein


In the province of Groningen, the village Warffum is every year an international dance-festival called Op Roakeldais. This is in the dialect of Groningen and means something like 'hoping for the best'.


Marjolein comes from the province Groningen. She lived in the capitalcity which is also called Groningen. Her parents still live here so she goes back to Groningen lots of weekends.

By Op Roakeldais people from all over the world come to Warffum for this festival that takes about a week. Dancegroups from for example Mali in Africa:






The Netherlands:














On these photo's they where all getting ready for the parade in the centre of Warffum. It's a beautifull Dutch village.






After this we went to the hobby market. Marjolein bought some presents for her father who's 50th birthday is today. In the Netherlands is costum to buy mustard for people who are 50. And the also say that when you are 50 'you say Abraham'. So Marjolein also bought some stuff with Abraham on it. When a women is 50 the will 'see Sara'.

In a big tent some groups from the parade also danced on stage during a performance called 'The world dances in Warffum'.

These are the Scottish:


And Colombia:



Then it was time to go back to Groningen with the train. It's a journey of about half an hour.





It was a very cool and also hot day!!

Groningen, The Netherlands - 5th July 2008

By: Marjolein


I went back to Groningen! This time I went to the capital city of the province Groningen, which is also called Groningen.
We ate at a Tapasrestaurant. Tapas are little Spanish snacks. We ate lots of stuff like spare ribs, dates, lambs, melon in honey and lots more. And for dessert a chocolatecake!! The restaurant had some beautiful and colourfull stairs!! After diner we had some drinks on the Marketplace called the 'Grote Markt'. We also went to a bar called the Newscafé and to the cinema. To the movie called In Bruges. It was a weird but cool movie. Lots of loud music and people shooting people hehehe. All and all we had a really nice night in Groningen!

Best wishes,

Nieuweschans, The Netherlands - 6th July 2008

By: Marjolein


In Nieuweschans, in the province Groningen, was a very cool festival today. It was called Celtic Midsummer Festival (in Dutch:Keltisch Midzomer Festival).


It was so cool! Lots of people where dressed up.





Asterix and Obelix where even there! There was a battle between the grown-ups and the children and the children won everytime! Of course I was cheering for them :D


We had beers and spare ribs.


And we danced to Celtic music from the Dutch band Rapalje. And the German band called Faun.




Marjolein coloured a candle and her boyfriend Kasper got a very cool stone mug with 'Rapalje' on it! They also bought special tea. Marjolein's mother bought lots of juwelery and she flirted with Obelix! He didn't have a shirt on and was getting very red in the sun. So she offered him some sunblock! ;)

I had a great time!!

Sausheim, France - 14th July 2008

By: Marjolein

Dear mum,

Today was a traveling day. I am in France now, just over the bourder with Germany. Our hotel is very good, the bed nice and soft, and there is a swimming pool! Too bad it is too cold to swim. And because we are soooooo tired, we just went to sleep!


Apart from the nice bed, the view from the window wasn't all that.



We had a nice diner, a good night sleep, and after breakfast it was time to really go to Italy!

Then it was time to go to Lucca. Lucca is a wonderfull old city with lots of beautiful buildings and old squares.
