The Netherlands has twelve provences. Two of them are called Holland( North- and South-Holland). The ten other provences will be offended if you call them Holland!;). One of them is called Overijssel. The river IJssel is an important river flowing through this provence. Overijssel is one of the most beautiful provences of my country.
Many of the photos I show are from Wikipedia.
The last photo is the vicarage where my sister and brother-in-law, who was the minister of the Reformed Church in Bathmen, lived for many years.
Bathmen is a town in the eastern Netherlands, in Overijssel. The municipality was merged with her larger neighbour of Deventer on 1. January 2005.
