When you live in Friesland, a province located in the North of the Netherlands, you must have tried sailing once.
I mean, of course I have been on a sailing boat before, those huuuge ones. But I had never sailed myself before. This is what I did last week when I went on a small fieldtrip in a small village called Hemelum. In my opinion, sailing is nice, when you don’t have to do it yourself. I did not know anything and it was quite hard to do for me. Fortunately, after the sailing we went paddle boarding, which I really liked. Currently, I am reading a book ‘See me – Nicholas Sparks’ and the main character likes to paddle board as well. Call me lame, but it could be a reason why I kinda wanted to paddle board, instead of power kiting.
Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures from the paddle boarding since I forgot to bring my gopro with me. Besides, I did not trust myself with my phone on the water, since my balance sucks. Gladly, I did not fall into the water.
What I really liked about the sailing school we stayed at, all the buildings were white. There were lots of boats surrounding the sailing school. Furthermore, there was this huge lake ‘the Morra lake’ super closeby. The first day of the fieldtrip we did not really do much, just some bonding games in the afternoon. This day the weather was amazingly good, which is the reason why I was wearing a skirt. The next day, when we went sailing and paddle boarding, the weather kinda sucked..
