Thoughts on Netherlands

We were only in the Netherlands for a short time. The Netherlands has the reputation for being a cycling nation, more bicycles than population. However, I found that when the Dutch are in their cars they forget how to behave around cyclists. On some of the narrower roads the Dutch drivers did not wait to pass.

The country was clean, due to the multitude of garbage bins that were at a height and direction for cyclists to use.

The Netherlands use the junction to junction system www.Hollandcycleroutes.com

We found that most Dutch people ride e-bikes and surprisingly not very friendly or helpful. However, when the Dutch, are abroad they are really friendly and very helpful.

We stayed at two different campsites, a large campsite with lots of facilities for kids and a small family run campsite close to the German border.

Having only spent a short time in Holland we could not comment on the political situation.
