Hello Markos,
The Thialf compared to Gulliver.... Nice idea! Believe me, it was a breathtaking view. Really great!
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments.
Best wishes to you,

Great shot Ria! This photo could have come from the book: Gulliver in Lilipouti...
(It is truly amazing, how all appear tiny, especially compared to houses with the good giant!)
With my best regards, Markos.

Hello Robert,
Thank you for showing interest and your kind comments. We have seen the Thialf more than once and every time we are amazed about how huge she is.
Best regards,

Superb picture this, it really shows the sheer size of Thialf! Well done!

As i said to Jens about that gigantic floating machine, i am stunned to see that big crane ships could still sail; i know it is just a question of physic but it still amazed me a lot....and should also amazed the tiny walking people walking along the water. Enjoy that shot with the house in the front of your photo. Very best regards, Robert08

Hi Henk,
This photo is indeed uploaded to show how huge the Thialf is. On the other photo there are walking people along the water.... if you can find them.
Greetings, Ria
