I fell in love with the country side of Netherland

From Amsterdam down to Hoogloon

I can't fully describe our full adventure at the country side in Netherland. The train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam took 2 hours due to maintains
so we ended up being late to the next train however people in Netherland are so nice and helpful...They are ready to help you with their iphones, information...I didn't have to run around like crazy with 3 kids looking for trains schedule...I was great-full to all the helpful people that helped me around. Still this world has nice people.
We had such great time in the "duke town" in Netherland...I loved the company....Roel, Carlijin, Gregory have been a great host for us....from
tour guide to driving us around, and keeping up with my 3 children....
Moving to different place...Dennis and Marije came and picked us up from the "Duke town" to go to their town about 45 minutes from Amsterdam.
We loved seeing our host since we haven't seen them in 3 years ago. We ate Pizza and shared stories until we were tired to sleep.
The next morning we started our tour by picking berries and buying organic ice-cream. We even saw the chicken and picking their eggs....
We couldn't ask for more relaxed fun day around the town. The kids played soccer with Dennis until they dropped the ball in the creek. We managed to hang two sticks together with rubber band and tried to grab the soccer ball. Success in the end.....
I can't say how happy we were to run around and see all the touristy area in Netherland....The famous mills....The cows....the large green fields....
Well I think Netherland is one of my favorite place.....

Traveling through the country side of Netherland

Loved the life in the country side

carlijin and roel my host family are so great. The kids loved being with roel. We went for walk in the forest...the trees are greener...we saw cattle everywhere....Hoogloon is small village where some farms produce their own milk, Yougurt and Cheese....The taste of cheese is unbelievable...
The children loved running and climbing everywhere....we even stopped and fed grass to Sheeps, deers.....It was a great experience for the kids...
The sun doesn't go down until 10:30pm....We have to pretend it is night to go to bed......
We cooked great meal with our host family....I made Rice, beans and Salad.....Always sharing a meal with friends is the best thing I can ever think of...
