Getting some fresh air for the weekend

I was a bit ashamed, considering the last time I visited Texel was about 25 years ago, when this island has everything for a nature photographer! Only 20minutes by boat and a crossing that is also very affordable by car. Its nature is truly a delight for the eye. The island is also a ‘must’ for birdwatchers.
