Europe 2019 – Back in the Netherlands – 2

  • Waking early in Arnhem to a great breakfast at the Hotel Molendal we then set off to explore the city in detail. First we visited the small but worthwhile Airborne at the Bridge museum and spoke to the very helpful staff there. Eusebius Kirk was next. Though the church is undergoing vast restorations and the crypts were not open to visit, the elevator to the bell tower was open and Bev took it to the top where she walked out on one of the glass box balconies. Next we drove over to the Airborne War Cemetery and the surprisingly large Airbornemuseum Hartenstein where under an historic home there are five huge floors of historic information and even an entire WWII street scene. Back on the road heading north we stopped for lunch at Twentse Bierbrouwerij – a BBQ and brewery obviously inspired by visits to Texas. After a bit of scenic drives along small farm roads we arrived at our stop for the night; Drostes Dineren en Logeren. In the next village we were surprised to see a four day horse jumping completion being held in the center of town. Tons of sand had been dumped on the paved square and converted it into an arena.
