Travel Tips for Norg

Little horses

by nighthawk

Like most children, my children are always drawn to horses and they gotta stop and feed the horses some grass.
These ponies weren t too eager to come to the gate, too bad I forgot to bring along some peppermint/sugar cubes.

Dwelling stones all around Drenthe

by Pavlik_NL

Stones are something that are typical for Drenthe (and other Northern provinces). Not for nothing it's here that we find the "Hunebedden", the ancient gravemarkers of 5.000 years old. These stones were brought here by the enormous ice masses that came Southwards in the ice ages. Before them they pushed enormous loads of sand as well as rocks. In the one-but-last ice age the ice masses reached all the way from the Northpole to North part of the Netherlands and deposited these stones. Since then they have been used for a great variety in functions.

Farmhouses with enormous straw roofs

by Pavlik_NL

As said before, the farmhouses in Drenthe are large and almost always topped with an enormous straw roof. Straw was a material that was very much present in the (wet) Netherlands. It was easy to find, cheap and very isolating. Especially in the Northern half of the country, it became very popular as roof material and is still seen very often in provinces like Drenthe. Adding to the beauty of the landscapes, the large farmhouses are very scenic and sometiimes also worth a visit. Just ask the farmer whether he has time to show his house and land, the hospitality often grants (when the man is not too busy) to get a guided tour with a sea of information about the countrylife.

Ring steken .. erm my English fails me now...

by nighthawk

When we were in Norg there just was a game of 'ringsteken' going on.
At least 2 sit on a carriage, one holding the bridles and one holding a stick.
The one with the stick has to catch the ring stuck in a piece of wood on a pole, looks easy but I can tell you: it takes lots of practice and a sure hand! Horse and carriage and someone next to you.

Norg, Noorderveld, tourism for the Dutch

by Pavlik_NL

Of course I can imagine that most foreigners focus within the Netherlands to the main attractions. But do you want to get to know the Dutch better, then one actually should go where the Dutch go. No, now, do not immediately jump to the conclusion that you have to get out of Holland and follow them on one of their many trips to foreign countries, but I mean ... go to the places that the Dutch go to within their own country. Especially when we have a family, camping is one of the favourite holiday stays and Drenthe (together with the nature on the "Hoge Veluwe" and the coast) are very popular. Here you find perfect campings and will enjoy the outdoor life optimal. Also you will see Dutch relax, which is already quite a revelation!
