BPE - Holland

Aug 24...
After going around Amsterdam, we wanted to see Holland's countryside, typical landscapes, and of course, its windmills!!!
the best way to do that in Holland is, of course, by bike! it is amazing the road network system they have for bikes all around the country! they even have signs for the bikes telling you which direction to take and how far is it till next town... they have numbers for each road and all... even without a map, we could make it all the way to Alkmaar and back home!
So we rented our bikes in the camping site, and we headed north... the landscapes were amazing, the birds, the water canals around the fields, the cows and sheep eating grass happily, the power windmills in the background... saying hi to other fellow bike travelers, and the people who lived in the towns we passed through...
