Saturday 10th June – Madurodam, Den Haag

Big day today as we opted to catch the train to Madurodam which is at The Hague (Den Haag). It took us two trains and one tram and about 1.5 hours. Amazing how well utilized the public transport system is but we find it pretty expensive.

Prior to leaving for our trip we took Bronte for her one hour walk and were really pleased with ourselves as we had managed to keep her out of any puddles – that was until the last 50 feet when she found this particular sticky black mud puddle and snorkelled her way through it. OMG! She was disgusting. Strange how she loves the puddles but hates being hosed off afterwards. She is pretty full on.

Madurodam is a miniature working village opened back in 1952. It is known for its famous Dutch landmarks, historical cities and large developments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had actually been there before but learnt the kids hadn’t been, so took the opportunity to take them.


The weather was meant to get to 20c but instead got to 26c and we went underprepared and paid the consequences. Now we are absolutely shattered having spent all that time in the sun. To make matters worse, on the way home the train was full to brimming so had to stand for a portion of it.

 


Came home to continue doing our parenting duties of walking the dog; getting dinner ready; doing three loads of washing and then collapsing into bed into a huge heap. This gig is for younger people.
