Our Bed and Breakfast De Oude Huize Yard and our fascination with suitcases and anything hollow

Collecting is so much a part of our being.  

Today we would like to share some of it with you.  So anyone that is going on this ride . . .  remember if you need more that one suitcase then you are a tourist and not a traveller.  

A wonderful selection of a suitcase, binoculars and collar box
The suitcase shows a wedding dress and ostrich feathers.
The binoculars will help to view the Platberg mountain and the birds in the garden

It's great to just disappear grab a suitcase, switch the answering machine on and just go somewhere else. 

What more do you need.  Your gholfing gear and something to go horseriding!

In the words of St Augustine 
"The world is a book and those who do not travel . . .  read only one page"  

Horseriding gear and tennis rackets.  This will keep the calories down

"Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again:  we had longer ways to go.  But no matter, the road is life"  said Jack Kerouac.  

A school case, a World War II bag and a medicine case.
Everything together.

An old Moorish proverb 
"He who does not travel does not know the value of men . . ."  

A picnic basket, some olives, Rum in a bottle, a box of cigars will make your day

A journey is like marriage.  
The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.

Do not follow where the path may lead.  
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.  
Words of Ralph Waldo Emerson.   

A hat box, a grooming set, a box camera, a fan and a map or Europe to show the way.

 A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles
