Heading Homeward From Germany, Back To Familiar Territory…

Another  post from our summer travels of 2012, this time a ” Seen from the window of the car whilst on the road” post detailing our journey back to The Hague from Germany.

The first photographs are of a cloud formation that looks just like persons head… thoughts were that it could be a Grecian lady with long flowing hair, or a Roman warrior with a helmet on, can you see it too?

The kids were delighted when we passed alongside a tiny airfield just in time to be buzzed by a light plane taking off, and when we crossed the border in South Limburg we were soon back to the familiar sight of windmills, bridges and flat land.

Back on the outskirts of  The Hague, the city skyline greets us and as the motorway takes us in towards the town centre,we pass under the arch of the National Nederland building and later, under several other office blocks built over the motorway. The motorway ends a little way after that and you know you are “home” when the large brick building nicknamed “the Elephant” comes into view. Our Singaporean friend “Velvetine” will have little time to sit still however, because we left Germany early so that we could squeeze in even more Dutch adventures!
