Zipping through Holland

Picnic on the Afsluitdijk

After a longer than expected amount of time to get the caravan ready, we were running behind schedule and finally departed Belgium on May 22nd after having spent a week at Dimi’s parent’s house.

We passed through Holland quite quickly; our first stop was Lisse, the heart of the flower fields, but unfortunately having arrived two weeks too late, the flower fields were no longer in bloom. On top of that, the first morning of our trip, Shadae twisted her ankle quite badly trying to step out the caravan. She put her foot on a metal bar laying on the entrance way, fell down and bumped her head against Kyra’s who was waiting patiently in her car. Unable to walk, we decided to immediately head further north and give the ankle time to heal.

We passed over the Afsluitdijk, the huge dyke built in the 20th century to create the Ijsselmeer on one side and the North Sea on the other. We drove through Leeuwarden & spent the night in Groningen where Dimitri explored the canals on bike in the evening. Kyra thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back of the bike and watching the scenery. The next morning, we headed towards northern Germany.
