Vacation, the long version - Part three of five - Walking around the neighbourhood

On the third and fourth vacation day I did not bring my camera. Not because the places I visited were uninteresting, but because it simply wasn't practical.

The third day I went to the city of Rotterdam with my friend Monique and we visited the Wereldmuseum (world museum) and walked around the area there. We also did a lot of chatting and sitting down to have coffee and show each other our sketchbooks/journals. It was a fun day!

The fourth day I went to the city of Zutphen to do some shopping and visit the market. Unfortunately it was a very rainy day so the market was pretty much non existent, all the salespeople simply stayed home. Luckily the city still has plenty of nice shops to offer so I didn't go home empty handed. 

So neither of those days were really photography trips. But the fifth day I took my camera for a walk again. Because of the four day trips already behind me I was pretty tired and decided to sleep late that day, do a lot of reading on sisters couch, and just take a stroll around the neighbourhood.

My sister lives on the edge of Zelhem and all you have to do a pass a little tunnel and you are in farm land. So the pictures in this post are of the walk I took that day:


















As you can see in these pictures there's a lot of water on the fields and sometimes on the roads as well. It was quite a rainy week actually, but I managed mostly to stay dry, so I was pretty lucky. Still, it made for some muddy roads sometimes and dirty shoes!

Hope you liked our little walk around the farm land and look forward to our next trip. Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.

  1. Love the pics - especially love the one of the cows. The cow in the front of the pic look like he's saying - "Yo, what's up?!" LOL I love farms [I grew up on one!]

    Also though I didn't comment - the pics of the castle were absolutely AWESOME. Man, your vacations are made of the stuff of MY dreams! lol It looked like you had a lovely time but if you don't mind, I'll take your next vacation for ya. *Giggle* Have a nice day!

    1. I was born on a farm and lived there until I was six, which was a wonderful place for a young child to grow up. And um sorry, but when it comes to my vacations I'm just not the sharing kind. Call me selfish, but that's the way it is, haha. :-)
