Travelling with (young) kids.
Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris to Callantsoog by car this holiday and drove some distances by car on when we were there and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you.
Bring books, old favourite toys and new surprise toys. Do remember that balls are not a good idea as they can end up anywhere! Our best buys were definitely books, especially sticker books are great! They can peel the stickers off, are glossy, have thick pages to turn easy, have bright colours and come in endless subjects. They're a nice break from the other books your child might be tired of, too. Put aside fears of setting poor eating habits, and bring on the snacks! We told Iris: “Welcome to the world of boredom eating."
Toy bars meant for stroller use are a big help in the car, as they often feature toys plus a snack cup, and are big and easy for you to grab from the front seat for refills. During the car trip it’s always a good idea to play a game and sing some songs. It sounds rather easy, but it does work!
We only have one last statement! Just do it! Don’t be afraid that it might go wrong. We have learned this, because we have been travelling with Iris from the beginning. She was only 6 weeks young when we had our first short vacation and stayed in a hotel. Iris has been used to it rather fast and (maybe because of it) has always been an easy kid to get along with.

The camp near ... Hooghalen!
Wetsrebork itself is a small village that lays in the middle of the province of Drenthe. The actual must sees are however not closest to Westerbork, but in the vicinity of Hooghalen. Anyway, roadsigns are pointing you in the right direction when you take the exit "Beilen" (number 31) off the A28 from Zwolle to Groningen. From here you follow the white signs "Kamp Westerbork" until the visitors centre (so not the blue signs to Westerbork!).
Yvonne (Xowe) and i went by car, Westerbork is located between the triangel of Assen, Emmen and Zwolle, on the highway u take exit 31 Beilen then Westerbork
