As a Dutch song goes:
Berend Botje ging uit varen
met zijn bootje naar Zuidlaren
De weg was recht, de weg was krom,
nooit kwam Berendje Botje weerom.
Translated that would be something like:
Berend Botje sailed with his boat
all the way to Zuidlaren
The road was straight the road was bbend
never did we see Berend Botje again.
Zuidlaren is a village with a green. And lots of recreation possibilities.
Great for a day out or a short break.
