    Walking the "Komiezenpad"

    by dutchboycalledjan Written Dec 28, 2010

    This used to be an important transit area form Germany to The Netherlands. The border invited smugglers. Now, meandering between the two countries, there is a fine hiking path, called the "komiezenpad", a "komies" is like a police man, a customs officer. On one place there is still a small gate, like the proverbial eye of the needle, on the road, to prevent travelling by car or with a hand-car or bike. Well signposted.

    Snowing in Winterwonderland

    by mary2u99 Updated Dec 20, 2009

    I am back here again this year(December 2009) and it looks like I am going to have my very first White Christmas. It now the second day after I arrive here. Today it has been snowing non stop. They even cancelled the football match today because of the snow. So I canĀ“t watch my favourite team(PSV) play.

    What I did was just sit indoor and watch the snow falling.

    A walk about!

    Walking around Winterswijk is a good form of exercise to see the town and also all the park surrounding it especially if the weather is nice and warm.

    We went for a walk one Sunday afternoon and it was great. My friend shows me his old school, the town and some park and playground like the school field where he played football.

    On our way back we stop at a pub to have a drink and some bitter ballen
