Where I stayed
What I did
Visited Putten & Giethoorn
well as the title says, we are not to be stopped by a little rain,actually it is about time we had some rain, we are in Holland, aren't we? We have had another couple of days of touring and visiting places. We picked up Reijo & Soille from the station in Harderwyk, they have come over from Finland to spend a week with us here. After that we went to a little town called Putten, a town welknown in Holland about what happened here in the 2nd world war. The Dutch underground attacked a car with 4 German soldiers in the car, one German was killed, the other 3 escaped.The next day, seven men were lined up in the town square and executed, then every male in the town was arrested, more than 600. They were all send to concentration camps in Germany. All the woman and elderly folk had to evacuate the town, and then the whole town was burned down by the Germans. Amazing to stand here in this little town with all its beauty, and to think what happened here
Yesterday we headed in the rain to Giethoorn, it is Little Venice in Holland. As we got there, the rain stopped and we had a great day!
All the houses are all on little islands surrounded by water, only accesable by boats or punts.
And boy, they are all beautiful, the gardens all are well kept and everything looks clean. I will let the photo's tell the story!
Today we are off to Amsterdam, promises to be a nice day!!
