"Welcome to our world" tompt's Profile

Welcome to our world (if you can find it)

Noordeinde is a small village in Holland. In fact it is so small you can't find it on the map unless you have a very detailled one. Even authorities do not really know where it is. See the directionpost, notice there is no distance behind Noordeinde pointed to the right and notice our church about 1km straight behind the post!

We are sure it will never be a tourist attraction but if you want to know more about it, since VT added it to the database we build a Noordeinde page.

About our pages

All things are changing in time, so did our pages. Since we joined VT the website improved several times. See how much the VT logo changed since we joined. ~~~~~>

Most pages were built when we just returned from the trip and had all things fresh in our memory. We try to built all our pages in a simulair way. The newest will have more tips, as we now travel with a VT look on things. Always looking for great tips and pictures....

Links are added in three ways:
green links link to our own VTpages and open in same window
orange links are external links and will open in a new window
yellow links are links to other VT members pages.

Our birthdays

By populair demand: the birthday listed is the birthday of the first mentioned.
But if you think it is too difficult: Tom - 30 august, Gonnie - 15 september

Celebrating 5 years of VT

Saturday the 28th of may 2005 we celebrate 5 years of VT !

5 years of making trips, pictures, pages and most of all friends. It has been a great time and we hope to enjoy many more years here at VT.

What did we do in those 5 years? We made pages about 158 locations in 36 countries. On those pages are 2234 tips and 20374 pictures.....
We visited 14 VT meetings, in 3 continents, meeting over 50 different VTers. And met 7 more VT friends for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

To make a long story short: it was 5 years of FUN !

In the mean time, time went on and we are already 10 years on VT.
And although work limits time to be spent on VT we now have 2499 tips and 8531 photos. And we hope to add more in the near future.

What did we see in lately?

- Nurnberg, Germany.
- Munchen, Germany.
- VT meeting in Belgium !!!
- cycling in Luxembourg.
- cycling in Austria.
- South Africa, work and safari. There is a short video about our Madikwe safari.
- Galapagos Islands. See our video in the video section of this page
- Vianden, Luxembourg

- Cycling the tours de Flandres in April
- Cycling in Luxembourg in May.
- Copenhagen, Denmark, a weekend break in June.
- South Africa, a three week tour with family. Our KwaZulu Natal province page is updated.
- Gerolstein, Germany, a weekend break.
- Düsseldorf, Germany, work

What is up?

- Genoa, Italy, work and three days of fun
- Valkenburg, the Christmas city of Holland
- Vianden, Luxembourg

- KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, a week filled with safari after working in SA.

And what ever comes up.......

Where ever we are going in the future, lets hope it is not a dead end street like this one........

Think before you buy...

PLEASE don't buy the wrong souvenirs. Ban the souvenirs made from animals or plants.

The dutch section of the WWF is campaigning against wrong souvenirs.
The motto: Kijken, kijken, niet kopen. . It is a dutch saying meaning: look, look, don't buy.

A plant or animal is to beautiful and precious to become an ordinary souvenir.

Any suggestions about our pages are welcome,
Tom and Gonnie

    Gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag. Ik kwam hier toevallig omdat ik op zoek was naar foto's van de Waddeneilanden.
