Travel Tips for Grouw
Grouw is a little village,...
Grouw is a little village, near the Pikmeer and the Princes Margrietcanal. It is the meancity of the community of Boarnserhim. It used to be a special place for boatman, fisherman and murchandeisers. Grouw has a bout 5600 people who live there. Its famous for its
wateractivities and is also called the meancity of the Friese waterland. Where you come from is not really a point, cause there is always a good bus, train, watertaxi or car (of your own) going the right way. In the former times you couldnt come into Grouw so easy, cause it was most of the time floded.
There are a lot of nice shops, a lot of bars and its a place for young and old people all together.
Take enough clothes with you that when you fall into the water you can change...and you need to change a lot. You need special shoes on board of most boats....like sneakers but then just a little different...we call them boatshoes, how funny! No need if you stay in a hostel...if you get ill there is a doctor close by. Take more then me! On the picture you can see the group i spend this weeks with from left to the right : Maurits, Sylvia, Monique, Mark, Ingrid, Karin and Floris. The funny part is that i walked into Maurits some years ago and he was champion Bodybuilding!
I never have learned how to...
I never have learned how to manage the sailboat....i am hopeless. When there is to much wind i cant stand it and hate sailing, when there is to little wind i love it but all the other would love to kill me for that ha ha
The kind of boat you see on the picture, is the kind of boat we have to learn to sail with. I amused myself but i never would do it again...
