Netherlands – Seals

Seal in Pieterburen
Seal in Pieterburen

At the coast or on islands it’s likely to encounter a seal. Sometimes they need help. If so, they’re taken to the Seal Rehabilitation and Research Centre in Pieterburen. It’s a nice place to visit, to learn about seals and to observe these cute animals.

This picture was taken through the glass of the pool with seals. They’re swimming to the glass and observing people, or we’re observing them. 馃槈

Foki tak偶e mo偶na spotka膰 w Holandii, a szczeg贸lnie w Fokarium Pieterburen. Gdy znaleziona na pla偶y foka potrzebuje pomocy, to jest zabierana do Pieterburen. Po wyleczeniu jest ona wypuszczane do morza. To podobny o艣rodek, jak u nas w Helu, ale w Pieterburen nie ma fok, kt贸re na sta艂e tam mieszkaj膮.

To zdj臋cie zosta艂o zrobione przez szyb臋 jednego z du偶ych basen贸w. Foki podp艂ywa艂y do szyby i przygl膮da艂y si臋 ludziom, a my im. 馃檪

Netherlands – Animals

Sheep in Delfzjil
Sheep in Delfzjil

The Netherlands is a highly populated European country, but it’s still easy to find there many green fields. And where is grass, you will find animals – mostly cows, horses, and sheep. While going by train, I was often wondering, are there more cows or horses. I guess, there are more cows, but it’s not so obvious!

__________________________________________________________

W Holandii, mimo i偶 to tak bardzo zaludniony kraj, mo偶na znale藕膰 wiele zielonej przestrzeni. Niekoniecznie lasy, ale du偶o 艂膮k. A tam gdzie jest trawa s膮 cz臋sto zwierzaki – przede wszystkim krowy, owce i konie. Cz臋sto podczas jazdy poci膮giem, zastanawia艂am si臋 czy jest tam wi臋cej kr贸w czy koni – pewnie jest wi臋cej kr贸w, ale to wcale nie takie oczywiste!

Netherlands – Huis Bergh Castle

Today’s picture presents another Dutch castle. This one is located at the Dutch-German boarder and it’s called Huis Bergh. It’s also a nice castle. I think it’s a bit smaller and less touristic than Kasteel de Haar.

__________________________________________________________

Dzisiaj widzimy kolejny zamek, nazywa si臋 Huis Bergh. Znajduje si臋 on tu偶 przy granicy holendersko-niemieckiej. To tak偶e urocze miejsce, a zamek jest chyba troch臋 mniejszy od Kasteel de Haar i zagl膮da do niego mniej turyst贸w.

Netherlands – Kasteel de Haar

Kasteel de Haar
Kasteel de Haar

Kasteel de Haar was the first castle I visited in the Netherlands, and I’ve reminisced about it for a long time. I think it’s beautiful. 馃檪

The castle is nearby Utrecht, but you can’t get there by train, you have to take a bus. I have to add here, that traveling by train in the Netherlands is very convenient, but by bus it’s a bit worse. Especially, when you travel on Sunday taking a bus is always problematic. I’d say don’t try to travel on Sunday by bus in the Netherlands, on a week day it’s usually much easier.

__________________________________________________________

Kasteel de Haar to pierwszy zamek, kt贸ry zwiedzi艂am w Holandii, i na d艂ugo pozosta艂 w mojej pami臋ci. Uwa偶am, 偶e jest uroczy i nie bez powody go艣ci wiele festiwali.

Zamek znajduje si臋 w pobli偶u miejscowo艣ci Utrecht, jednak nie mo偶na do niego dojecha膰 poci膮giem, trzeba przesi膮艣膰 si臋 na autobus. Musz臋 tutaj podkre艣li膰, 偶e podr贸偶owanie poci膮giem po Holandii jest bardzo wygodne, ale autobusem ju偶 troch臋 mniej. Szczeg贸lnie nie polecam autobus贸w w niedziel臋! W pozosta艂e dni tygodnia jest zdecydowanie 艂atwiej!

Netherlands – Weesp

In Weesp

When I was visiting the Netherlands, I found many lovely towns and as long as the weather was nice I always enjoyed the view of brick houses, canals and … windmills. 馃檪

This picture was taken in Weesp. It’s not the main tourist attraction, but it has its charm.

__________________________________________________________

Podr贸偶uj膮c po Holandii, natrafi艂am na wiele uroczych miasteczek. A je偶eli tylko pogoda dopisuje to chyba wsz臋dzie jest pi臋knie. Widok domk贸w z ceg艂y nad kana艂ami jest uroczy. Do tego cz臋sto znajdzie si臋 w pobli偶u wiatrak, jak na zdj臋ciu w miejscowo艣ci Weesp. Weesp raczej nie jest typow膮 holendersk膮 atrakcj膮 turystyczn膮, ale mo偶na tu si臋 wybra膰 na bardzo mi艂y spacer.

Netherlands – Old windmill

Old windmill in Texel
Old windmill in Texel

Today you can see another windmill, but a bit unusual. 馃槈 Isn’t it funny? I found it while cycling in Texel Island.

Texel is the largest Dutch island, and probably the easiest to reach from Amsterdam. There are a few more islands that belong to the Netherlands, and I can highly recommend to visit at least one of them.

The Netherlands also has islands in the Caribbean, but it’s a different topic, let’s stay for a while in Europe. 馃檪

__________________________________________________________

Na dzisiejszym zdj臋ciu widoczny jest kolejny wiatrak. To chyba jedyny w swoim rodzaju wiatrak. Znalaz艂am go podczas rowerowej wycieczki po wyspie Texel.

Texel, to najwi臋ksza wyspa holenderska i chyba te偶 naj艂atwiej si臋 tam dosta膰 z Amsterdamu.

Holandia ma kilka uroczych wysepek na Morzy P贸艂nocnym i bardzo polecam odwiedzenie chocia偶by jednej z nich!

Do Holandii (a w艂a艣ciwie Kr贸lestwa Niderland贸w) nale偶y te偶 6 wysepek na Karaibach, ale to troch臋 inna historia; p贸ki co zosta艅my w Europie. 馃檪

Netherlands – Windmills

Windmills in Kinderdijk
Windmills in Kinderdijk

The Netherlands is full of windmills. Some of them are in use, in the other ones are museums or even houses. They are an important and characteristic part of the Dutch landscape. Personally, I think they’re charming, especially “in wild”, together with water, grass, flowers, and cows or sheep. 馃檪 What do you think about windmills?

If you want to see many windmills in the Netherlands, go to Kinderdijk (this photo) or Zaanse Schans.

__________________________________________________________

Wiatraki, s膮 nieroz艂膮cznym elementem holenderskiego krajobrazu. Niekt贸re z nich zosta艂y nawet przekszta艂cone w domy, czy偶 nie by艂oby wyj膮tkowo mieszka膰 w wiatraku?

Je偶eli chcecie zobaczy膰 wiele wiatrak贸w bardzo polecam wycieczk臋 do Kinderdijk (tam zosta艂o zrobione to zdj臋cie), albo do Zaanse Schans.

Netherlands – Bicycles

Cycling in Gouda
Cycling in Gouda

Cycling is an extremely convenient way of transportation in the Netherlands. There are many bicycle paths, and the country is quite flat that makes cycling relatively easy. You just have to get use to that in the cities there are always many cyclists around you. All Dutch people love cycling and have at least one bicycle.

__________________________________________________________

Jazda na rowerze jest najlepsz膮 form膮 transportu w Holandii. Dzi臋ki ogromnej ilo艣ci 艣cie偶ek rowerowych podr贸偶uje si臋 艂atwo i bezpiecznie, a p艂asko艣膰 terenu jest tu dodatkow膮 zalet膮. Tylko w miastach, szczeg贸lnie w godzinach szczytu, trzeba si臋 przyzwyczai膰, 偶e dooko艂a nas s膮 setki rowerzyst贸w.

Netherlands – Tulips

Tulips in the Netherlands
Tulips in the Netherlands

There are a few products that are associated with the Netherlands, i.e., windmills, cheese, water, canals, van Gogh (do you know how to pronounce his name correctly?), bicycles, orange color (or “Oranjes”), buttermilk and herring (really!) and of course flowers. In spring time, you can cycle along tulip fields, or just visit the famous Keukenhof garden, that is full of colorful flowers.

__________________________________________________________

Jakie macie skojarzenia z Holandi膮? My艣l臋, 偶e ka偶dy m贸g艂by wymieni膰 kilka rzeczy, jak np. wiatraki, ser, woda, rowery, mo偶e ma艣lanka i 艣led藕, a na pewno kwiaty. Wiosn膮, warto wybra膰 si臋 na przeja偶d偶k臋 rowerem wzd艂u偶 p贸l tulipan贸w albo odwiedzi膰 ogr贸d Keukenhof.

Netherlands – Cats

Do you like cats? If so, you can easily find many of them on the streets. They aren’t stray cats, they have owners. They just spend all days outside. And many of them like to play. 馃檪

In the picture is one of my cute ex-neighbors. 馃檪

p.s.: If you don’t like cats, don’t worry, they won’t bother you. 馃檪

__________________________________________________________

Lubicie koty? Je偶eli tak, to jest du偶a szansa, 偶e wiele ich spotkacie spaceruj膮c po holenderskich ulicach. To nie s膮 bezdomne koty, maj膮 w艂a艣cicieli i cz臋sto nosz膮 obro偶e, po prostu dnie sp臋dzaj膮 na 艣wie偶ym powietrzu. A, one cz臋sto lubi膮 si臋 bawi膰 z turystami. 馃槈

Na zdj臋ciu jeden z moich by艂ych s膮siad贸w. 馃檪

p.s. Je偶eli nie lubicie kot贸w, to pewnie nawet nie zauwa偶ycie ich obecno艣ci, nie s膮 gro藕ne. 馃槈
