It’s time to leave Amsterdam and hit the road again. Have had a wonderful time in Amsterdam, very much due to my very gracious hosts, Sonny and Yvonne.
Have walked around town, seen the sights, eaten chips with lots of majo and made new friends.
Amsterdam is a wonderful, if slighty touristy city. If anything, I must admit to beeing surprised at how small it is. I was expecting a large, international city but it feels more like Stockholm than London.
I am sitting in Haarlem as I type this, on my way to Noordvijk where I’ve been lucky enough to get to borrow a summer house right near the beach for the night. Today I will finally reach the west coast and turn south to begin making my way in the right direction again.
But it’s a long walk from Amsterdam and I will probably not arrive till after 9 or 10 this evening.
Better get walking!
