Couple of weeks ago Alex, my Dutch friend invited me over for a short visit. Few days later I had the tickets from Tallinn to Weeze and back. Perfect weekend getaway. First weekend in a long time I did not have my laptop with me and it felt good!
It was interesting seeing Netherlands from a locals’ perspective. Alex was very nice and borrowed a bike from his co-worker and we spent a big part of Friday in Apeldoorn just riding around. I was surprised that everyone was on bikes and how bike friendly the city was.
Amsterdam was not much different. Bikes everywhere again, though the traffic was quite heavy compared to a more quiet Apeldoorn.
People were friendly, food was great and I am sure I will be back there one day to experience it all from a different angle.
Plenty of bikes in different shapes can be seen below, mixed with some shots of canals, tulips, windmills and canal houses…
