I certainly enjoyed my time traveling across the Netherlands. It’s a country filled with idyllic pastoral scenes, unique architecture, and some of the world’s best cycling infrastructure. I won’t say that getting lost was impossible, but it was certainly much harder with the plethora of routes to follow and helpful signs!
Slightly lost, I paused in a small town to ask a large gathering of people for directions. This group was having a baby shower, complete with blue licorice treats and plenty of wine. They invited me to join the party, and one family, the Van Dijks, hosted me for the night. They were wonderful! 🙂
The Netherlands was a tremendously pleasant place to bike around, and the ubiquity of quality cycling paths and respectful drivers made touring here a breeze! I’d love to go back. Have you visited this nation of tall, friendly people?
