Travel Tuesday: Neuharlingersiel harbour


Here we have a building made from bricks. That’s very typical for that region, because they have not much stone for building houses.

On the right side you can see the words “Oll School”. That’s “old school” in Low German. When aligning German – Low German – English you can see many words as tight relatives (In some cases, Dutch builds another bridge between Low German and English): i.e.
– Schule – School – school
– Tag – dag – day
– Alt – oll – old

and many more.

Take care!
