Where did David go this time?
We travelled quite a bit the other day in our rented car. The weather wasn't too cooperative, but just good and dry enough to have a day out.
First, we went to Kinderdijk, famous for its row of windmills, then to Giethoorn, a village which is supposed to be the "Venice of the North". Then as an added bonus, since we weren't all that tired, we travelled further north, into Fryslan (Friesland) and drove on the Afsluitdijk, a thirty kilometre dike which connects the two sides of the Netherlands. In total, around 500km, an effectively a circle around the north of the country, through meadows, forests, artificial land, polders and dikes.
