Overall, Holland was a beautiful country that we hope to visit again. Our bike tour took us through dunes and along canals and dykes. We crossed bridges such as the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam and crossed other waterways by ferries. Our friends Marion and Dennis planned our whole trip and had picked out a few nice places for us to stay such as the B&B in K a/d lek and the bird house in Vlaardingen. Since most people speak English, it made it easy for us to communicate with the locals and therefore get to know them better.
Food wise, we ate many salads and sandwiches with goat cheese for lunch and ate Dutch food for dinner. Our favorite dishes that we tasted where fresh herring topped with onions, kroketten and pannenkoeken.
While in Amsterdam, we tried out an Indonesian restaurant (Long Pura) where we sampled the rice table- a great selection of Balinese dishes served on a long narrow heated plate. The next day, we rushed over to Greenwoods for a delicious brunch before heading over to the museums.
