Belgium, Holland

I felt good in Holland I was the fastest 2 wheeler in town, everyone is riding push bike, but they start to have electric pushbike, so watch out I may have competition soon. I must say Dutch and Belgium driver are much more disciplined than French or Italians drivers it is a real treat to have a pleasurable ride over there. People stop at red light, stop sign, give way etc… what a relief no one go over the speed limit and everyone is very courteous on the road, so let’s get cracking.

On the way to Amsterdam we stop in Brussels, Gent, Brugge and  Knokke-Zoute a very popular beach resort.
