Cadzand, The Netherlands - 19th May 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

On May 19th we started our vacation trip to Cadzand in The Netherlands.

I was very eager and packed the car together with TezTez and Mr Pumba.

After a 2,5 hours car ride we arrived and started vacation with a huge portion of fish and beer  :cyclops:

Zeebrugge, Belgium - 20th May 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

On my first holiday I joined my host mum and dad on a 50 kilometer bike trip to a big harbour called Zeebrugge together with Mr Pumba and TezTez.
We all had a chance to see a fire fighting boat, a submarine and a very big ferry. On one picture you can see myself sitting on an anchor with my friends  :D

Brugge, Belgium - 21st May 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

Mum, look!

I visited Brugge together with hostmum, -dad, -grandma and -grandpa. And of course my buddies - TezTez and Mr Pumba.

First, we visited the "Begijnhof". A béguinage (French) or begijnhof (Dutch) is a collection of small buildings used by Beguines. These were various lay sisterhoods of the Roman Catholic Church, founded in the 13th century in the Low Countries, comprising religious women who sought to serve God without retiring from the world.

Afterwards we found a nice canal with typical buildings.

And then I tried my first Irish Coffee - wow! YUMMY!!!  ;)

The last pics show us on the market place in the heart of Brugge.

Vlissingen, The Netherlands - 23rd May 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

We had a stop in Vlissingen which is located in Walcheren.

Walcheren is a former island in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands at the mouth of the Scheldt estuary. It lies between the Oosterschelde in the north and the Westerschelde in the south and is roughly the shape of a rhombus. The two sides on the side of the North Sea consist of dunes; the rest of its coastline is made up of dykes. Middelburg lies at its centre; this city is the provincial capital and Vlissingen 9 km to the south is the main harbour. The third municipality is Veere.
Originally, Walcheren was an island, but polders and a dam across the Oosterschelde have connected it to the (former) island of Zuid-Beveland, which in turn has been connected to the North Brabant mainland.

Veerse Meer - Veere, The Netherlands - 23rd May 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

Another stop on our tour was Veere which is located at the Veerse Meer.

The Veerse Meer (Lake Veere) is a lagoon in the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands. It was separated from the North Sea in 1961 by the Delta Works dam system. It is 22 km long, and 1,500 m wide in places. Lying between the old islands of Noord-Beveland, Zuid-Beveland and Walcheren, it is linked to the river Scheldt by the Zandkreekdam lock, which allows this lagoon to have brackish water, slightly less salty than sea water. There are 13 small uninhabited islands in the lake. Some of its banks, underwater at high tide, have been made into nature reserves, while others are popular for water sports, such as sailing.
