"'Turkey'" Turkeije by egonwegh

Turkeije Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

In our language there is no difference in the pronunciation of the name of this place and that of the country Turkey, that is to say, both this place and the foreign country are called "Turkije" ; only the names are spelled differently.

So the only reason I can think of to visit this remote hamlet in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen is to provoke a dialogue like the one below:

"En waar ben jij dit weekend dan geweest? --- Wie, ik? Turkeije! ---Echt waar? Jemig, zeg!"
('So where have you been for the weekend? --- Who, me? Turkey! --- Really?? Gee!')

I have to admit it: I've been to Zeeuws-Vlaanderen too, way back in the 70s with my parents and brothers. Had some wonderful holidays there. I'm pretty sure we drove through Turkeije once or twice back then, but I do not have a picture to prove it.

Our weekend foster child (right) spent a short holiday there this spring, and we received this picture by e-mail...
