Flevoland (MDMNL AtoZ Challenge 2015)

Have you read my brief introduction to this challenge?

If not, here is the link: Introducing HFNL A to Z Challenge 2015

My personal blogging theme for this year: the places I have been in the Netherlands.  

At Happy Feet in the Netherlands (HFNL), I'll be writing about the places (which is not only limited to city, towns or villages but may also include restaurants, stores - places we go for hikes, where we sailed, or a special spot etc.) from the perspective of a runner.  

The blogs here @ My Daily Mooosings in the Netherlands on the other hand will be from a perspective of an expat, mom, traveler, writer, who seeks to simplify life.

Today, "we go to" : Flevoland, specifically to the waters of LelystadMarkermeer.

Last weekend, the sailing season officially began at the new harbor of our sail boat: Sail Drifter 25 (we still have to give it a new name, so for the mean time I refer to it by this name).

We were not there because we decided to have a quiet Easter weekend at home.

But we are very excited to sail in Markermeer from the new home of our sail boat.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures above, and if you would like to follow our sailing adventures, please check out @ Sail Drifter 25 blog.

We welcome name suggestions! The family is still not completely one with a new name.  But hopefully  before Spring ends we have a new name!

You could send suggestions via comments, or via the email : saildrifter25@gmail.com.

If you are on Facebook, you could also follow the FB page, which my husband set up to connect with other sailing enthusiast: Drifter 25 "Petroesjka".  Petroesjka is the name the former owners gave the boat.  Feel free to send a private message, there OR leave a comment. My husband will be replying to you.

BTW, if you are wondering where blogs C-E are - a very short explanation can be found: here.

Hope you are enjoying, the A-Z blog challenge!
