http://img381.imageshack.us/img381/2226/003fd7.jpg

http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/4503/008ag2.jpg

I love it here and I'm sure I'm going to enjoy my stay. We celebrated my arrival with Dutch food, bitterballen. That is so delicious, I could eat that every day!

Middelburg, Netherlands - 2nd May 2008

By: Jiles

On my day of arrival I already travelled to another town, Middelburg. Middelburg is the capital of Zeeland and there are some amazing buildings.

This building from 1607 is called 'Kloveniersdoelen' and belonged to the Schutterij.
http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/6702/051lx2.jpg

Here I am in one of the main shopping streets of Middelburg, do you see the Finnish flags?
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/540/053rw7.jpg

Cheese!!! :D We asked the owner of this cheese shop if I could sit next to that cute bear  B)
http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/9104/054cm5.jpg

After a short walk we arrived at the market place where the town hall is.
http://img380.imageshack.us/img380/5616/057xb0.jpg

Since 2004 the Roosevelt Academy is situated in the town hall.

Hi again!

I brought the good weather in from Portugal!  B)

Time to show you some spots in Goes.

On this photo, I show you the the harbour.
http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/6808/019xs7.jpg

The opened drawbridge, because some boats arrived. The bridge is manually operated by a bridgekeeper.
http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/8243/020mj0.jpg

This is just outside the harbour, look how lovely. :)
http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/7189/024im6.jpg
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/509/027rf2.jpg

I have already seen a typical Dutch windmill  B) and we will also visit Kinderdijk. It's not far from here, there are many more windmills and it's a UNESCO WHS site!
The tower behind the mill is the television tower.

Goes, Netherlands - 5th May 2008

By: Jiles

OlŠ! Here I am with a brand new update of my Travelog!

On this photo you see me in front of the water tower in Goes, this water tower was built in 1912.
http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/6397/65004tx8.jpg

We have three cats here but I haven't seen them around a lot, they seem to be a bit shy. Only Mielo isn't shy, she is so nice to me. :)
http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/7678/45023po3.jpg

I can't wait to go out!
http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/8923/45028qu6.jpg

This church is the 'Grote of Maria Magdalenakerk'.
http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/9850/55008nd0.jpg

There is also a museum in Goes, Historisch Museum De Bevelanden. There are expositions about Goes and surrounding area. I'm not sure yet if we are going to visit the museum. Because the weather is so nice, I prefer to spend the days outside. :)
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/7664/55009vh1.jpg

Not far from the church and the museum is the marketplace. Behind me, you see the town hall of Goes.
http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/244/55026jo8.jpg

Me on the market place! B)
http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/8507/55027ij7.jpg

A canal, which is part of the historical fortification and in the background the 'Grote of Maria Magdalenakerk'.
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/8163/65059yt7.jpg

Here you see some houses alongside the canal.
http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/3135/65060ri1.jpg
http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/2764/65064oj4.jpg

What is Goes without a goose! Here's Miss E, surrounded by Goes' geese!  B)
http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/8438/65066qk2.jpg

Then we walked a bit and I had a rest on a water pump.
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/7727/55018fn8.jpg
http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/8649/55017bh3.jpg
http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/6885/55012zc0.jpg

Mum, I hope you enjoyed the update.
Your dearest Miss E. :)

Kloetinge, Netherlands - 6th May 2008

By: Jiles

Again, I have many photo's to show you, I hope you don't mind! We have been on a bicycle tour and I loved it so much. :)
http://img108.imageshack.us/img108/8522/65028bd1.jpg

This roadsign is designed for cyclists, I don't remember if I've seen them in Portugal. There are also special roads for cyclists!
http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/1889/65034at4.jpg

A railway crossing.
http://img104.imageshack.us/img104/2539/65032zf9.jpg

The white flowers behind me is 'cow parsley', in Dutch it's called 'fluitekruid'.
http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/632/65009xo1.jpg

Beautiful horses. :)
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/2937/65012vo8.jpg

And another windmill! This windmill in Kloetinge was built in 1704.
http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/9527/65036se6.jpg

Now we are in Kloetinge, this is one of the oldest villages in the area. Here you see some decorations for Queensday which was on 30th of April. Can you see me?
http://img363.imageshack.us/img363/4333/65042lx8.jpg

More decorations and see the church? Back on the bike to have a closer look!
http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/5364/65043ao0.jpg

There we are, the name of this church is the 'Geerteskerk'. Construction of the tower got finished in 1494.
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/8279/65044fb6.jpg
http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/6052/65047ed4.jpg

See the wooden shoes? Nicely decorated, beautiful!  B)
http://img107.imageshack.us/img107/5151/65050if8.jpg

It's time to go home, luckily it's not far. :)

Goes, Netherlands - 11th May 2008

By: Jiles

Hello!

Last weekend there was an old-timer event, Molentocht. A number of old-timer cars made a tour in Zeeland and during the tour they had several stops. One of the stops was at the market place in Goes, we went there to have a look.

This car has the best numberplate ever and as I am a doll myself, I had my picture to be taken here. :p
This Austin Seven Ruby is from 1937!! Can you believe it? Such an old car! :o

Tilburg, Netherlands - 16th May 2008

By: Jiles

Hello! :)

Some days ago I have been in a Dutch train but before we left home I had breakfast. Unbelievable but true, Miffy bread does exist!  :stare:
I must say, it wasn't bad at all!
http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/9034/75005ij8.jpg

During the journey, I sat on a little table so that I could look out of the window. I almost felt asleep..... Here's another train approaching us, we are in a similar train, a double-decker and we sat downstairs.

:o
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/8854/165018ap0.jpg

Time to go home! Back at the train station and waiting for our train to depart. The train behind me is another type of Dutch train.

Back in Goes. Today I took photos on the way to the supermarket. There are different roads to get there and one of the roads leads through a cute alley, how cute is it and how wonderful would it be to have my room up there?
http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/303/21011up7.jpg

This is me in front of the theatre building.

On the left you can see the entrance of the theatre.

's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands - 24th May 2008

By: Jiles

OlŠ, it's time for a new update because I have been out for a day. On Saturday, we visited 's-Hertogenbosch. It's in the South of The Netherlands and it's the capital of the province 'Noord-Brabant.

Here I am in front of the oldest remaining brick house in The Netherlands, it was built at the beginning of the 13th century. The name of the house is 'De Moriaan'.
http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/5572/24001ki1.jpg

It was quite a long time travelling to get in 's-Hertogenbosch and I was thirsty and hungry. My watch said it's lunchtime!
I ordered a big glass of sparkling mineral water with a slice of lemon.
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/752/24004rf3.jpg

And a wrap filled with beef and vegetables.
http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/1825/24007ib3.jpg

We had our lunch in a small restaurant in a street with many restaurants. Here you can see a small part of the street.
http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/4218/24005sy5.jpg

After lunch we arrived at the Sint-Janskathedraal or St. John's Cathedral, the cathedral serves for the bishopric of 's-Hertogenbosch.
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/4352/24009xu6.jpg

The Sint-Janskathedraal was originally constructed as a church (1220-1340) but is a cathedral since 1559. More recently, the cathedral received the honorary title of basilica.
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5800/24011pj1.jpg
http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/7168/24017gm9.jpg

We also saw this horse tram.
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6194/24012xk2.jpg

Right behind the cathedral is a lovely square, here is one of the houses at the square.
http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/440/24018zb0.jpg

Hmm... I'm in The Netherlands, right?  :cyclops:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/9688/24014qj9.jpg

Hidden below the old city is a canal network called the Binnendieze. Hmm.. I like to swim!
http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/5141/24024uq3.jpg

No! Better not swim here! The Binnendieze has been used as a sewer system! Although there is a modern system nowadays, I don't like the idea! ;)
http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/8913/24025dh1.jpg

These people are going to do a canal 'cruise', a guided tour on small boats, on the Binnendieze. :)
http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/2824/24026fs2.jpg
http://img296.imageshack.us/img296/72/24027vq7.jpg

A typical Dutch street, I have seen similar streets in Middelburg and Goes!
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/6131/24028ue1.jpg

You could aready see this bird on the previous photo, I went closer because he looked so cute! The signs says:"De blauwe vogel". This means:"The blue bird". My Dutch is getting better!  B)
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/8632/24029zz1.jpg

This wooden shoe is definitely too big for my feet! I took advantage of that and used the wooden shoe as a chair! :D
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/741/24031oz2.jpg

We left the old part of the city to visit relatives. They live near the Central Station, we had to cross the station to get to their house. We didn't go down the escalator. :(
http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/3105/24032gc3.jpg

I'm on a small balcony, the houses behind me are similar to the house where the relatives live. They have a special shape! Like a sailing boat!
Hmm.... someone just explained me that I'm right. The name of the complex is "Armada", from the Spanish Armada!
http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/2151/24038lb4.jpg

Can I have a swim now? No! Caught again! :(
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/2251/24058bd5.jpg

Ok.. I'll sit here on the border for a while, together with these birds. :)
http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/1526/24043si0.jpg

Or this snail.....
http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/7874/24044gi9.jpg

Hmm.. Or I take a flight on this plane!!
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/9198/24054rv1.jpg

No, I'll have an aperitif!  B)

Goes, Netherlands - 27th May 2008

By: Jiles

A new friend arrived today. His name is Auggie and he comes from a planet, Gardog. So, I travel around the world... the world isn't the only planet?  :thinking: Can I travel to Gardog too? 

I said hello to Auggie. :)
http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/3585/27015st9.jpg

And I helped him to get out of his envelope, he said he travels in a spacebag! How exiting!
http://img79.imageshack.us/img79/7973/27018me0.jpg

He told me everything about his travels so far, he has seen a lot already!
http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/7472/27020qf0.jpg

Auggie arrived at lunchtime and I'd just prepared lunch!  :D
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/794/27005up9.jpg

Here I'm eating poffertjes, it's a traditional Dutch dish. It's very similar to pancakes but they are smaller. :)

Goes, Netherlands - 30th May 2008

By: Jiles

Hello, here is Miss E again!  :)
Unfortunately, this week the weather hasn't been really good! They say this is typical Dutch weather and everyone here was so happy about the Portuguese weather I brought in!

I showed Auggie around, now he has seen some places in Goes.

Here is me with Auggie, in the background you can see an old bridge, made of stone. The bridge is part of the historical fortifications and long time ago there was a city gate at this place. The name of the gate was the Ganzepoort or Geese's gate in English! :D
http://img49.imageshack.us/img49/47/305003pq7.jpg

Remember the church in one of my previous travelog updates? On that day, I couldn't look inside because it was closed. But this time, we could!
http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/1467/305004nc2.jpg
