Another painfully slow day, average speed only 10kmh on a near perfect cycling day, not too hot, dry and no wind. We cycled through some beautiful countryside though. We passed through Gouda, famous for its cheese and where the largest cheese market in the Netherlands is held in the mornings. Later we passed through Utrecht, the forth largest city in the country and the capital of the smallest province. Utrecht has Hollands largest and the second oldest university. The city's history dates back to Roman times (AD47), when it was known as Trajectum ad Rhenum ( ford on the Rhine)
Our campsite for the night was just outside Doorn. A large site that was filled with bungalows and static caravans. The small grass area for tents was okay and we were the only tent campers. Unfortunately the facilities, which looked quite new and modern were not very clean. Perhaps they get very few tent campers, but thats not really an excuse and I certainly wouldn't recommend it.
It seems I've been travelling all my life. For the past eight years I've been following a simple, nomadic lifestyle full time touring in a camper van and meeting with other like minded travellers.
