where I did my presents (cadeautjes) shopping for my family in Portugal...

In the tourism office,
I bought for my nephew a one thousand pieces puzzle of the Wadden Sea lighthouses ...

...and two cloth doll kits for my goddaugther in the De witte engel store...

I like to do my shopping in traditional stores such as these...where we can find nice things to offer to our dear ones...

Wonderful photos! I've been thinking about Texel lately & the Wadden Islands, planning hopefully to visit soon. Your photos certainly entice me! Thank you for sharing all about it.

Have a great week :-)

I have been twice in Tercschelling, which was great. I am curious about Texel but my husband and in laws keep answering back that is more touristical and has less nature than Terschelling.It seemed quite relaxing via your photos (and just 20 min. from Den Ehlder ? mmm, that's REALLY nearby ! When you compare to Terschelling it takes 45 min. with a quick boat. I have to go to Texel, help !

Hello Anita,

I can't compare both because I never been in
Tercschelling :-(
But I remember your photos quite well and I m curious to go there as well!
I hope you enjoy Texel! :-)
A great week to you!

I felt curious after what you told me, so I stopped to take a peak. Very nice indeed! I love that kind of shops too. But you gave away what you are taking as presents to your family - it won't be a surprise anymore!! :o)

Only my "comadre" see the blog, but I don't show the kits for my goddaugther ;-) My mother has no computer, so she doesn't see the blog. My nephew prefer to speak with me by phone, like my mother...so, no problems. ;-)
