Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday V for The Veluwe

Map: Provincie Gelderland in Nederland
Welcome to Our World Tuesday! This meme continues in memory of the work of Klaus Peter, whose "that's My World" brought people together from around the world every Monday to share the wonders therein--big and small.Please click on our new logo for "Our World Tuesday" in the sidebar.

With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.We also thank Roger for his work. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with V.

Today I am leaving for Australia, and hope to stay there for three weeks. We shall all meet in Tasmania, my family and I, and celebrate Christmas  together. But today I also like to tell you something of the Netherlands.
  The Veluwe is a beautiful part of the province of Gelderland in the middle of the Netherlands.Gelderland  is the largest province in the Netherlands.   The capital is Arnhem. Gelderland, and especially  is very popular with tourists and holiday makers. 
The video is taken in a holiday centre near the town of Putten. In one of the photos  you see a board telling the story of the men who were taken to Germany never to return to their families as a punishment because the people of the resistance had killed one of the Germans.

We could use a white bike to cycle through the park.

Sad chapter from WWII (too many sad memories of that time), but what a lovely park it is. I would love to see this area.

I hope you are well on your way to Tasmania and there wasn't too much snow. Enjoy your trip and visit.
