Heading Home from Holland

Recommended Posts

Finally, after a virtual absence of nearly 5 months it seems to be time to fly to my home airport again. So I´ll take a blue-white Lancair from Schiphol...

... turn west over Amsterdam CBD...

... and reach the German border relatively quick, near Rheine.

Ibbenbüren power plant guides the way...

... towards Osnabrück with its remarkable railway cross.

At Porta Westfalica the Orbx sceneries GEN and EDVY do not really use synchronized seasons, surprisingly.

The monument for Wilhelm the Emperor has a brilliant location.

And an impressive size.

Plus a good view. One could see my company office on this shot.

By plane it is really a short hop to Hanover. Here you see the southwest area with the Herrenhäuser (baroque) Gardens to the left.

Just next to it you can see some famous hockey pitches, with occasional international action.

The direct train from Amsterdam stops here at the main station (bottom of this shot). I live a bit more to the left (shown here as well).

And the airport is not too far away. Home!

Great flight Gerold and nice real life pictures too.

I've been in Hannover for the Cebit in 2007 (or was it '08?).

Thank you Ben! I am not totally sure if I remember your visit from 2007 or 2008 :D.

Thank you Martyn. Some shots from my backyard, makes it easier to have detailed info.

Wonderful trip and shots Gerold. What an amazing trip you must have had. 

Thanks Karl. Well that 5-month-trip was just virtual. However it was combining a real-life trip to Oz done in September 2019, an upcoming trip to Canada and the US mid-west and another booked trip to South Africa. It just takes longer in reality. And it also takes more coins.
