Winter in Almelo is cold, and it gets colder

Winter in Almelo is cold, and it just keeps getting colder.........
This picture was taken on December 5th (Sinterklaas) by friends of mine, just to make me feel good for being in sunny Australia travelling around in a 1973 VW Kombi van enjoying 30 degrees instead of minus 10 degrees.........

Anyone for ice skating?

Anyone for ice skating? There's a great natural skating rink just outside Almelo in the most beautiful forrest setting. Lit up at night for the romantic amongst us...........

't Hookhoes, a watering hole with a difference!

't Hookhoes, a watering hole with a difference.........
In the cold of winter, sitting around the pot-belly stove, listening to all the tall stories evryone has to tell. Dreaming of summer days sitting outside on the terrasse in glorious sunshine, sipping a frosty beer.........

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely country town, with no hassles. Fantastic entertainment value! Especially when you are well off......
  • Cons:What politicians........!
  • In a nutshell:Almelo, I love the fact that I was born here, a wonderful place to put my head down every year after travelling the world for yet another nine month or more...........

    Your pages are quite unique and laced with wit. So, are the birdcages really speed traps?? Thanks for the interesting, informative, clever tour.
