The Eastern Netherlands: Arnhem and Doetinchem

I was very excited about my travels to the Eastern Netherlands. My mothers side of the family originated from Holland. To this day there are several family members of mine who live in Doetinchem.
My true family history of the Gasseling family started in Wehl, Holland which is about 5 min from Doetinchem.

I took the trein from Amsterdam Centraal Station direct to Arnhem Station. My family picked me up from the station and we drove 20-30 minutes to Doetinchem.

Here are some great pictures of my Holland family.

Family restaurant: Resto Gasseling. Has been in the family since 1982. The food was amazing. If you are in the area traveling, stop by and mention you know Whitney!
