    Town walk

    The shopping street

    Favorite thing: Since i didn't want to miss a thing i took the town walk. Got the info at the desk of the tourist information agency (1,50 euro) and equiped with that brochure i spend a better part of the afternoon taking pictures of these old buildings, reading up on background information and had a very good time in general..

    Since it was november already, i didn't meet any other people doing the same route.. And some people even looked at me when i was trying to get the best possible picture.. But i thoroughly enjoyed myself.

    Fondest memory: I know it sound as a cliche but i have to admit i enjoyed everything.

    Brielle lies on the island Voorne

    The old town center with my house on it too!

    Favorite thing: Europoort is in fact a huge conglomeration of chemical industry. See travelogue Europoort
    But...hang on...attached to Europoort there is the island Voorne-Putten, an amazingly quiet rural region, rich in history and culture and a great place to live.

    Bridge #1

    Favorite thing: September 25, Karel & Leida took us for a cruise on their boat. I found it fascinating to watch the bridge caretaker go from one to the other to allow us to pass through.
