I booked a house in Texel for one week. So we will have a family vacation (God willing) this year. Texel is an island off the coast of Holland. It's beautiful, with sheep and large white sandy beaches and thatched roof houses. I'm hoping Juergen gets to go windsurfing on his birthday. And we will try to build Super-Size Sandcastles! And of course I'll bring back tulip bulbs and lots of chocolate sprinkles. Texel is beautiful when it’s not windy and raining. But you cannot reserve good weather. So I hope we are blessed with sunshine. All these photo's are from past trips to Texel.
