"Savage children here" Simpelveld by stewarth99

Simpelveld Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 19 photos

We were all savages here.

Lived here for two years. Learnt to rollerskate here. No selfrespecting child couldn't. Cycled everywhere. Saved a fortune by not travelling to the tropics to learn to use a blow pipe. Learnt it in Simpelveld. Using electrical cable ducting and paper darts, or snowberries when in season. Apologies to the builders in BOUWENSTRAAT, we (all the kids in the area) were the one stealing your ducting. To be fair it was mostly from the rubbish heaps. Snowberries make great ammo - they make a satisfying SPLAT when you hit a target. Who needs playstations when you can go out and annihalate the neighbours, on a daily basis if you want.
