For the first time, I celebrate the very first day of the year in the Netherlands. From the city of Rotterdam I went to the island Goeree-Overflakkee to visit a friend. Both of us spent some hours at the North Sea beach called "OUDDORP" . It was very nice to walk along the beach and to see kite-surfers. After that we ate a typical Dutch soup, which is called ''ERWTENSOEP''.
