My first goal was to give you a varied view of Groningen. I hope that I have reached this by writing about different things in Groningen, like the Groninger museum and 'het Noorderplantsoen', but also by giving a view of different buildings in the city.
My second goal was to make clear that accessibility is very important in tourism. I have written about some places that are well accessible for tourists with a disability, and about places that are not very accessible. I gave some theories about accessibility, for example the one from Buhalis and Darcy (2012), which says that there needs to be a collaboration between different parties to make accessible tourism possible.
|It is time to leave Groningen|
So I have shown in this blog things that are interesting for tourists.
In this blog I have used different theories. I am interested in different sides of tourism, so I have written about heritage tourism, tourist behavior and accessible tourism.
I hope you have enjoyed my blogposts, my pictures and the theories I have explained. It is now time to go back to New Zealand, but the Netherlands were worth the visit. I really want to come back soon to discover more of this small country.
