Monday 21st October. Rotterdam to Hook of Holland. 34 Miles.

Well that was nearly a disastrous ending to the whole trip! I only booked the ferry the wrong way, England to Holland, instead of Holland to England, what an idiot!

Thankfully the very kind girl on check-in changed the route at no extra cost! I thought the times of the ferries were different to ones I’d got!

Definitely lucked out on the cabin, there’s even a TV

Spent the morning hanging around the hotel, it was pouring with rain. And I didn’t have to be at the ferry until 11pm. Well that was what I thought!

After spending the morning in the hotel, I then went out to play the tourist.

I liked Rotterdam, I thought it was a lovely place, made all the better by the fact that everything is accessible by bike!

Luckily I got bored with playing the tourist, and headed for ferry. Just as well, it was due to leave an hour earlier than I thought!

It was an easy 20-mile ride to ferry terminal at the Hook of Holland.

I liked this sign

  1. Ah, the Centrum! There are so many misunderstandings. Pinter said, ‘What we take for common ground is really a quicksand’. Well, after that tour you deserve a luxurious cabin. Hip! hip! Hurrah!
