Let's Show You Around - Afsluitdijk

video
Today we went to Friesland for a fun day with my colleagues from the publishing house. I will upload some pics later on this blog and on my photo blog, but first I want to show you around on the Afsluitdijk (Closure Dike) connecting Holland and Friesland. Check out my second 360° video clip above (first one here) and have a look at this location on Google maps here and watch a satelite pic here.

Wow! That's impressive! Does it make you nervous to drive across that?

Hi Vicki! No, not at all. It is one big, straight motorway. The only worries I have are about speeding... because it is easy to put the pedal to the metal here! It's nice to stop halfway (where I made this short video recording) and see the Waddensea and the IJsselmeer on each side of the Afsluitdijk. Once I stopped here during a clear night and because there is no artificial light here, you can have a great view of the starry skies!

Paul,

Thanks for sharing. Through these exchanges we learn a little more about each others world

I love the idea of a 360 look around so did one today - or am doing it right now.

I've loved visiting your blog - I've missed not coming here and really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the video clip you have in the sidebar - the one of the poem/words.

Hope you have a great Sunday!
