Utrech walking in the town.

My daughter Valeria argues that this museum in Eindhoven has been designed with Minecraft.

I don’t comment! Do it! I only say that this is the center of the city!

Go! Direction home! We’ll travel throughout the night and tomorrow … See you from my office!

Open the tent to let go air at this hour of the morning? Hot??? Who would have thought! Happy Easter!

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake

Ok! You don’t want to get up, I understand! I had so many ideas for today, so… #changeprogram #relax #idleness

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake

Today they decide the program! An effort to move them of two meters!

The swans now are three!

I told you that it is hot here! For them it’s the middle of summer, for us – perhaps – a bit less…

No, they are two! It’s very hot!

I’m beginning to understand the strange laziness of Valeria this morning and why she didn’t want to go away from campsite!

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake surf lesson

Post a bit argumentative.
Lesson strictly in English, that here, of course, they all speak fluently.
If you don’t understand … you fall in the water. Maximum concentration to work together physical and brain.
Mumble mumble.  Are we sure that in the days lost at school she would learn more?

This post has sparked debate. Who agrees, who doesn’t. If you want to know my opinion  I invite you to read the interview of Tiziana (a teacher and now head teacher) that made me on her blog.

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake surf lesson

Great Valeria! She’s already upright!

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake surf lesson

Valeria comes back! Exhausted but ecstatic. The instructor asks several times if Valeria is really the first time that tries surf, not satisfied then he asks me too!

Now also explains the second part of the anomalous laziness of this morning.
Roberto: where we find another camp that gives me 10 amps of power and has a supermarket open on Easter Sunday??

Now everything is clear! Not fatigue, relaxation, nice location, …

itinerary in Holland camping on the lake barbecue bbq

Roberto and Valeria are absurd! Even the eggs they bought!

But now … this is professionalism!

We have a lunch at impossible hours but the style…

19 April 2014

The landscape outside our tent. Photo made ​​just thinking of all those who repeat: Holland is beautiful, but the weather …
How you woke up this morning?

itinerary in Holland camping

Seals hospital of Zeehondencreche in Pieterburen… mah! For me these places almost never do a good impression, of course… my daughter is fascinated!

itinerary in Holland seals

Here’s the location of this night and the view that we will see tomorrow morning by opening the tent! I would say that today you can dine a little ‘late, but it’s worth the wait! Tonight we spend less than 7 Euros! We are at the camping Erkemederstrand.

Also tonight a swan as a neighbor!

At checkout this morning they tell us that they never had italian guests in over twenty years working! This is the harbour. They still build sailers as in the past. Spectacular!

itinerary in Holland sailers

Photographer at work (be careful that the water is cold)!

Even the ship with the headlight installed on board!

Low tide. Lost the island because the ferries are all fully booked (and with exagerated costs). They told us that we can go on board with our bicycles. Ok!!!… Change program!

itinerary in Holland mud on the beach

Wheel over the big dam! Be careful that wind you down!

itinerary in Holland texel island

Obviously, you don’t want stop to take a pictures of everything? But it all!

Wind farm. One word: awesome! The man is nothing in comparison!

itinerary in Holland texel island wind farm

What they are? Wind turbines! They will be more than 30 meters long and have a diameter of 2.5-3 meters! Today I really bowed in front of the technology!

itinerary in Holland texel island wind farm

What are these? Where we ended up today? Who was reading the map?? Kangaroos in Holland??

We met so ontheroad. Here the coordinates on the pictures.

kangaroos in holland

Service communication to all those who want to come on holiday with me: here is hotter than home, but there are 9 degrees (downhill), the sun (which doesn’t heat up at all) and a wind that carries us away! But … we spend 5 euro to sleep at Easter! You know that I don’t make it for 5 euro (for this I would sleep in the car and I’d it warm), but only for my little big love! Do you know Valeria???

itinerary in Holland texel island camping

My daughter isn’t normal to go around the camping with this, but my husband … It is even less to get onboard!

17 April 2014

Only my husband can go to the supermarket to take two cookies for breakfast and come back with this XXL thing! Now I would like to understand where he’ll put it… The car isn’t small, but he would be able to fill a truck!

The harbour this morning!

Two cows when we waiting the boat…

16 April 2014

Ferries!

ferries to texel island in holland

One minute for boarding. Obviously at box they speak great English. The ferry, new and clean, despite the flood of people who carry every day, go. We climb the stairs and not even realize it. Free wifi on board, free and fast… No! That can’t work! I don’t come back in Italy!!

valeria and roberto in texel island

Almost there! I love the Holland and its fast connections! This on the ferry travels at twice my adsl and to connect … a click, no data, no login! Travelling in civilized countries makes it seem more and more miserable our reality!

itinerary in holland canals

Disembarking and a bit of tulips.

Ready to walk in the mud? We… a little less!

holland walk in the mud

A beer is what we need!

holland beach in texel

This is Valeria after thinked his program! Tonight she wants to sleep in a tent at all costs and I can no longer boycott it! Then tomorrow morning at low tide want to go at dawn to walk in the mud to get to the other island and Roberto continue to say that it’s dangerous, cold, wet, muddy (obviously!) and many other things! What do we do for the child!

holland beach in texel

Beach on Texel.

Here they go on the beach with tractor!

I would rather sleep in the lighthouse that in a tent… to tell the truth I’d rather sleep in a car that also in the tent…
Ok! But this lighthouse is wonderful!

The dams are always impressive.

dams in holland

Here the eggs (as well as milk and cheese) selling like this! The small box is full of money, obviously since this morning they have sold several. You look, you can serve, let the money and go! Don’t ask me why I love it so much the north and the Nordic peoples!

itinerary in holland

The harbour and tomorrow… seals!

holland harbour in texel

I’m not expert about camping (thankfully), but the campsite with a private bathroom is better! Obviously, clean and with everything you need inside. Outside games for children. They are too far ahead! I, after 25 years, sleeping in a tent again, all for my baby!

itinerary in holland camping in texel island

Finished work in spite of everything! Supermariobros alias Roberto resolved all. On the other hand … It was logical that simply make happy Valeria, right? Finally we go to eat!

itinerary in holland camping in texel island

Luckily our sleeping bags, bought more than twenty years ago, is Salewa and guaranteed down to -20 degrees! Nothing cold!

15 April 2014

The floating flower market in Amsterdam. Here for a moment made ​​me want to retract my natural aversion to the care of the garden!

But… just for a moment! I don’t really have a green thumb!

Do you want to know the history of this ticket? The message is clear! Try to guess in the comments, it’s impossible! Tomorrow I will tell you if someone has guessed it!

english write

Ok! I explain all.

My father studied at school, more than 50 years ago, a few words of English. We leave him alone in the boat moored in the marina just to go to inspect around and is presented to him a man. Obviously the guy speaks fluent english and my father doesn’t understand or who he is, nor what he wants and he obviously don’t know how to explain. My father has so a flash of genius: he has a good idea to try to write. What he meant was more or less: I don’t speak English, my daughter yes, and come back in two hours.
When we arrived back at the sight of my grandfather (who died several years and had already 90) but he knew the english because he studies for two hours … we could no longer stop laughing!

07 April 2014

Here are our neighbors boat with egg in the nest!

While I use free and very fast wifi in the library, my daughter disappears for an hour in the maze of shelves and environments. What she understand in Dutch, I don’t know … but she likes spending time here!

And, note color, she is back with the Dutch version of the Little Prince!

2 April 2014

The first destination for LillyOnTheRoad that opens this section as I written in the last post.

Thanks to collaboration with Le Boat, Europe’s #1 Boating Vacation company, in a few days we’ll leave to discovery the Netherlands in houseboat.

The blooming of the tulips is the best time to discover a country perfect for bicycle. Windmills, canals and colorful fields are ideal to take a pictures that I love so much and the good web connections in Holland will facilitate this experiment.

I just have to get organized and go! Follow the next update April 6 (because the others I don’t know when will) and the hasthag on social network!
