Bosseln - What is that? Watch the video to find out.

One of the things I love about travelling is learning new things, languages, culture and just things people do for fun. On my recent trip I got involved in a local game of Bosseln. What is that you might ask?

Well I made a video to explain, but basically it is road bowling, played in Ireland and Northern Holland as well, it can be taken very seriously, but this was a fun afternoon. Well we hoped it was but we got hit by a major storm, and did not complete our course as it began hailing and the rain had penetrated everyone's clothes. Hope you enjoy the video. Cannot see this being played in the US due to liability issues. We did all have to step aside when a car came down the road/lane on which we were playing. We had eight teams playing, in two separate groups, so our support car shared time between us, luckily we had our trusty wagon with us.


Afterwards we got warm, dryed off and met up at the local restaurant, which is also an Irish Bar to have some traditional German food, Green Cabbage and Wurst and Pork with Potatoes, and beer and schnapps. A fun afternoon and evening. 

What I discovered is that you can have fun, regardless of the weather, there are so many interesting people around the world, you just have to talk to them, and you should never judge a book by its cover, and you can make new friends where ever you are.

Hi Nick... looks like you had a great time weather notwithstanding. My husband is Dutch but I don't ever remember him mentioning this game... and I have plenty of relatives in Germany who also have never mentioned it. Learn something new in the Rain every day it seems.

That looks like a fun game, but it definitely looks too cold out there for me, haha.

Thank you for sharing that game with us.  Ten jurisdictions in our country would be having conniptions over all the rules that are being broken...In Europe, it is different.  A

Nina Hollander it is played like Germany in the far north of the country. I have German clients and they looked at me odd when I mentioned it.

Brian England I was having such a good time I didn't really notice the weather till we called the game, then realized i was soaked through to the skin.

As we played, I thought of all the rerasons why this would not be allowed anywhere in America Ron and Alexandra Seigel and we were playing on a reasonably quiet road, it is often played on busy roads with plenty of traffic.

Morning Nick.

I'll just watch and enjoy the adult beverages and the food.  Besides it looked like it was cold, I don't do cold weather
