Netherlands – North Sea

North Sea
North Sea

I guess, when you plan your trip to the Netherlands, you don’t really think about swimming in the sea. Well, it’s possible but the water of the North Sea is not the warmest one. 馃槈
It doesn’t mean, it’s not worthy to go to the coast! There are many lovely places and large, sandy beaches, and you can often meet cute oystercatchers (Do you remember them from my previous pictures – Galapagos 29th of May 2015, Falklands 15th of April 2015)!

Wydaje mi si臋, 偶e ma艂o kto planuj膮c wycieczk臋 do Holandii, rozwa偶a mo偶liwo艣膰 pop艂ywania w morzu. Morze P贸艂nocne do najcieplejszych nie nale偶y, ale ma wiele uroku. Poza tym cz臋sto mo偶na spotka膰 zabawne ostrygojady, pami臋tacie je z moich wcze艣niejszych zdj臋膰 – Galapagos 29 maj 2015, Falklandy 15 kwiecie艅 2015?

Netherlands – Ameland

Ameland
Ameland

Five of Dutch Islands are accesible by ferries. On the 8th of August you saw one picture from Texel, the other islands are called: Vlieland, Terschelling, Schiermonnikoog, and Ameland that is on today’s photo.

I visited all of them. Each island is very nice, however I prefer the smaller ones.

Na 5 wysepek holenderskich mo偶na 艂atwo si臋 dosta膰 promem. 8 sierpnia, pokaza艂am Wam zdj臋cie z wyspy Texel, a dzisiaj wyspa Ameland. Pozsta艂e 3 to: Vlieland, Terschelling, Schiermonnikoog.

Uda艂o mi si臋 odwiedzi膰 te wszystkie wysepki i ka偶da z nich jest urocza, cho膰 najbardziej mi si臋 podoba艂y te mniejsze, na kt贸re nie mo偶na dop艂yn膮膰 z w艂asnym autem.

Netherlands – My favorite neighbor

Kitty in Groningen
Kitty in Groningen

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s very likely to see many cats on Dutch streets. This super cute kitty was my favorite neighbor, we called her “Drama Queen”. 馃檪 Isn’t she pretty as a queen?

p.s. Her voice is a bit squeaky, so “Drama” comes from her funny meowing… 馃槈

__________________________________________________________

Jak ju偶 wcze艣niej wspomnia艂am, bardzo 艂atwo jest spotka膰 urocze kociaki na holenderskich ulicach. Kicia ze zdj臋cia by艂a moj膮 ulubion膮 s膮siadk膮. Zawsze do mnie podbiega艂a miaucz膮c i prosz膮c o g艂askanie.

Spotyka艂y艣my si臋 prawie za ka偶dym razem w drodze po zakupy, wi臋c zacz臋艂am zawsze zabiera膰 ze sob膮 aparat fotograficzny. 馃檪 Kicia ma setki zdj臋膰… 馃榾

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

Huis Bergh
Huis Bergh

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
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.
