Well today took us really back to our childhood, we visited the toy and old trades museum in Terschuur a village again steeped with history. They had the most amazing collection of old wares and toys, most of these you remembered from the days when we were young, you might have seen it at your grandmothers,grandfathers place. Items probably a few hundred years old.It just about covered all aspects of your life,from a old chemist shop or a old post office or a blacksmith,think of a trade, it was there. A old cither my dad use to play on when we were kids or a sjoelbak we had at home when we were kids.
The countryside around here is extraordinary, with the oldfashioned farmhouses standing out in the lush green paddocks,and black & white cows, it really is a sight to behold.!
After spending some houirs there and tasting some of their homemade soup, we returned to our camping via the backroads, thats when you see Holland at its best. Here you get the choice, you can go the fast way (130 km ph) or the nice way ( backroads) takes longer, but worth it.

Elke dag kijken wij naar jullie reisverslag en zien dat iedereen zich kostelijk vermaakt tot nu toe. Houen zo! Het weer zit nu even niet mee, maar de voorspellingen voor de volgende week zien er goed uit. En Rien, hoe is het met
de bekeuring voor fout parkeren afgelopen? Wij hadden een geweldige tijd in
Frankrijk, veel gewandeld in de bergen van de Franse Alpen en bij onze familie
in de Correze. Wij blijven jullie volgen en hopen jullie nog een keer ergens te ontmoeten. Nog veel vakantie plezier toegewenst. Groetjes Conny en Jan

Hi Rein, Have you found the old farm house we used to holiday in at Barneveld?? when Pauline and I were there we couldn't find it, so look hard. We got close but were not sure if it was the right place.
Hope the camping is not too hard on you after being spoilt rotten at the relo's homes.
all our love John and Pauline
