Flevoland, Oostvaarders plassen – The Netherlands

with No Comments


In the seventies the Netherlands constructed a huge polder in a natural lake. They assigned a big part for farming. Another part of this polder, between the cities Almere and Lelystad, was assigned for heavy industry, that was to be contructed in the future. In the meantime nature did not wait and at that same location a beautiful landscape emerged. Lucky for us the Government did also see this and now it’s a National Park. Recently 180 wild horses have been captured and they will be transported to Spain and Belarus. Also 1745 deer have been shot. Only 490 deer and 450 wild horses can stay in the Park, according to the new plan. By taking these measures the Government hopes that the Park will remain a valuable habitat for many species of birds.

We also have a blog. The story about 5 smaller cities in the UK

When people from outside the UK visit England most people go to London. Of course this is a great city to visit. There is a lot to see and do and when it’s your first time in this fascinating country I can definitely recommend it. You can easily spend a week in “the Big Smoke” and still only see a few things. Museums, theaters, parks, nightlife. There is plenty to do for everyone. I wrote about it in a previous story on our blog.
