Lovely Surprise from the Netherlands

Getting and sending postcards has definitely become one of my favourite pass times and on arriving back from my mid-week-break-a-way with M, there was a lovely surprise from the Netherlands awaiting me. I love the stamp especially! have you missed me? I am off to play a 'poitjie-kos' Bowling day Challenge - so my chatter will have to wait till tonight. poitjie - is a BIG BLACK AFRICAN Pot that is used on a huge open fire.

I can't understand spoken Dutch but understand a bit when it's written. The stamp shows a bicycle. The Netherlands without bikes wouldn't function! I was in Amsterdam twice and loved the traffic signs, especially this: "Verboden Fietsen te Plaatsen" (literally: Forbidden bicycles to park). I could laugh my head off. I don't know if it sounds funny for English ears, too.

@LadyDuck yes I mean Kentucky F C - the Flemish are crazy about it and travel every Sunday to buy it across the borders. we have plenty of KFC here, but I dont put my lips to it. I did not see any KFC in Germany, however I did see them Ireland and Spain .

It is a lovely post card. I have never been in Holland nor have a friend there. I was a part of a facebook group which is composed of people who travels a lot. One of them sent me a post card from Norway. It was so lovely. I wish I could really visit the country.
