Welcome to the Gorter-Wowor Family Home Page

Welcome from the Gorter-Wowor Family - Peter, Sally and Alan. We live in Assen, Netherlands - way in the middle of nowhere in a town with 58,000 peoples, 500,000 sheeps and 1,000 coffee shops. Assen is the capital city of province Drenthe. Up to the north close to Groningen. Assen is a small town compare to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Den Haag, etc but it's a very nice and cozy town. What I like about Assen is that we have here every Wednesday and Saturday "PASAR" (market). it feels like home!!!

Glimpses of Drenthe
Drenthe is one of the provinces in Holland, up to the North. The capital city of this province is Assen, where we live. Assen is a city what we called bowl of salad, because in Assen live a lot of people from different nationality and colour. Assen has one big sport event, we called it "TT ASSEN". People from all over the world come to Assen every year at the same time which is the third week of June. They come here to join the Motor Race (TouristTrophy Assen). The race is always on Saturday, two days before the race is party for all the people. Thursday night is famous as "Assen Night" and Friday night as "TT Night".
