@Schulmanator: Yes it was, imagine biking in that cold. I had to and it is a bad as it sounds like.(there is something nice at it in some way) Next week the temperatures are going back to normal which means I can no longer ice skate L. I’m glad you liked the flag, this week I made some more pictures in gimp.

@YUUU: Thanks!

@NMUspidey: Yes it usually never happens here either, it was the coldest week since 1944 I believe, "the Winter of hunger"

Today I wanted to do something different. Insired by the many roadtrips around I mad one my self in Nathanthemayor's style he showed in his Cj the United Cities. The trip will be trough th eprovince of Stroomland [str-ohm Lah-nt]which means “stream land”. We will mainly drive on the N1, wich follows the meanders of the river Tuur [Tu:r]

I am very sorry about the errors in the left of pictures, I don't know how that happened :boggle:

We start just south of the village Best, which we pass.

The N1 exits from itself, the N17 replaces the N1, we are heading for Jolen

The entrance sign of Jolen. Jolen is a very stretched out village and also home to Kasteel Jolen [Kah-stayle Yo-len], the castle of Jolen. Let’s take a look at it.

We take the Bergweg (north) to reach the castle

This small castle has been a very important link in the defense of both the cities Ture and Bijsterveld, which can be easily accessed by the river.

And soon we enter the village Karpershoek [Kahrpers-hook] home to the Stroomdalen (Stream Valleys) National Park

Large mansions at the entrance of the NP imagine how much they’d cost!
