Windmill Museum in Greetsiel, Ostfriesland





Moin! Greetings from Ostfriesland!

Two weeks holiday is over, now my life is back again to normal. Washing clothes and dishes, cleaning and etc. We had a chance to see some parts of Ostfriesland, North West of Germany. It was always raining and stormy, windy and cold but still we enjoyed the trip in Ostfriesland. Ostfriesland is about 250 kilometers away from here, Wolfenbüttel.


Ostfriesland is composed of small fishing and farming villages and some not so big towns around. It's more on the coast part of Northern Germany, ( Nordsee).


Greetsiel - we came from Neuharlingersiel to Greetsiel, a small village on the coast. It was really raining so hard when we arrived. We heard that there are two museums there, windmill museums and they have traditional tea cafe and good cakes. It was true what they say, whew! i ate the whole piece of this "apfelstrudel" with ice cream and Michael had "Käsekuchen".



Then we look around the village and of course took pictures, i like the old harbor of Greetsiel.

  9. Ostfrielsland looks much like regular old Friesland, to the west, in the Netherlands, which happens to be the place I was born, but didn't stay.

    Like you, I love to travel and got lucky marrying a globetrotter. Married him in Kenya, had our first baby in Ghana, and further on we went. The world is a wonderful place, mostly.
