Travelsonabike2 The Netherlands Monday 21st-October-2019

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in the Netherlands on Monday, 21st-October-2019. Rotterdam to the 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 the 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 11 pm. 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 the ferry. Just as well, it was due to leave an hour earlier than I thought!

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

  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!
