WOW, it’s been quite a while since we posed anything on here. Having said that we are back on the road again travelling a bit. Short break, nine days in total – destination Tuscany. We did what all responsible parents would naturally do, leave the kids in school and in charge of the house and […]
This morning we are leaving The Netherlands and are heading for France. This is going to be our first time to northern France. Off to Normandy we go, but because we are not in a huge rush we are taking it easy with a stop for some sight seeing and breakfast. If we are not […]
We were out in Amsterdam for about 11 hours plus the drive there and back. This has been a long day but I think we are all quite happy with what we saw. In a city of this size you need to spent at least 5 to 7 days to get a good feel for […]
