It is Ascension Day, 21 may 2009!
The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day to go out. i went to my favorite place Giethoorn, it's only a 30 minutes drive.
When i'm comming to Giethoorn my first stop is Smit's paviljoen, here i drink my coffee and most of the time with some cake!
I was here with my best friends and we went to the museum of Giethoorn, although I come to Giethoorn a couple of times in the month i'll never visit the museum, it was for me the first time, and now i'm asking myself why!
This museum introduces you to the old habits and traditions of the Giethoornse community and their way of life.
I was thinking, the good old days! But when you see the pictures, you know it was a hard way of life and not easy to survive.
Now we're comming to Giethoorn, because the canals and for recreation!
Many houses have, as it were, been built on little islands which can only be reached over the bridges that are characteristic of Giethoorn. Of old transport in Giethoorn has taken place by water in so-called "punters". You can hire these punters and in that way get to know Giethoorn from the water.
Greetings from Giethoorn.
