A late entry for the tuesday-theme:

My parents ran this Hotel during 16 years of my youth. It was (and still is) a great place to stay in a beautiful area in Holland.

Yes Jean, it still is a wonderful place athough it has been restored many times. In my youth it was a simple Hotel mostly for older people but for some families too who returned for a holiday every year.

Besides that a lot of sportsteams stayed during the winter for World- European Tournaments for football and skating. Of course thats etra interestng if you are a young girl ;-))

Happy memories for sure Anna-Maria !! But I imagine it was hard sometimes to help beside school works. My husband had to do it at the time in the restaurant of his parents......

It sure was Ruth, but I liked it a lot!! I m the only one of the 4 children who has helped a lot... the others only with special, busy occasions like Christmas. I even have been thinking about taking over when my father had to stop working when I was 20 years old....

It looks so attractive, Anna-Maria - a lovely place to have spent a lot of your childhood.

By the way, I've just added you to my friends list - AGAIN. I've no idea why, but I noticed you had disappeared from it!
