    Church

    by LiesbethTjemmes Written Jan 15, 2004

    The church of Winsum is a very sweet little church, but its most interesting feature is the concierge who takes care of it. He is very eager to tell you everything there is to know about the church and provide you with things like a nice cool drink an deodorant (!)

Winsum Warnings and Dangers

  • nighthawk's Profile Photo

    Be aware of what you dare

    by nighthawk Written May 2, 2005

    The outside stair of the church tower was so very inviting, all three of my kids wanted to climb it.
    Haha, 2 made it but the third only came half way.
    Another one, standing on top of it, suddenly realised the height and had to be helped down.
    So glad I didn t try to go up! I surely would have been stuck up there!

    Yikes!

    Countryside

    by nighthawk Written Sep 15, 2005

    Spring & summertime are just beautiful in our province ... everything blooms ... smells are great too .. we love driving into the countryside (well, not as much as when our kids were all younger lol) ... so glad I now got my driver's license haha I can escape without bugging another person ;-)

    Oh and since we are Dutch we bring our own picknick ;-) like this spot .. view over a poppy field and at the other side of the road an oat field. Just lovely!

    Peace & quiet in the countryside Great route to drive, go to www.groningsgoed.nl Enjoying the view and a coffee Agricultural gold yep that s the name of this flower! thanks!

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Winsum Favorites

    Lovely old centre

    by nighthawk Written May 4, 2005

    Favorite thing: Especially when in the boat you have a nice view on the back of the houses.
    The red is ever so nice and the people (when in the garden) are friendly!
    Beware however how far you go on the water, you might have to work your way against the wind when going back... tiring!

    Fondest memory: When I look at this pic I just wanna go back! Not to rent a watercycle but an electric boat (whisper boat), haha my legs are still (2 days later) hurting!!

    Walk throught Winsum

    by nighthawk Written May 4, 2005

    Favorite thing: Winsum is but a small village, just walk through the older part and forget about the new addings, they are no fun.

    The red roof tops are so nice to see and it s clear Winsum is a agricultural village with little or no industrie.

    Many children from the town of Groningen visit the school that s located here.

    Fondest memory: Just this man working his garden, the sun and the trees in bloom, lovely sight.
