This is the second chapter of our bike trip in The Netherlands.
So, where were we?
Morning, Rotterdam to reach, bikes and a lot of rain.
What’s better?! 😀
Our goal was to reach Rotterdam via Scheveningen, one of the most famous holland shore and Den Haag.
After a quick breakfast and a look around, we started pedaling toward Scheveningen under the rain .
It isn’t too far from Leiden, around 20km. We passed through Meijendepark, the largest dune area in South Holland.
Open dunes, lakes, forest: a MUST for who loves the nature.
Finally we saw the sea!
Magically, once we arrived in Scheveningen, the rain has stopped and this boosted our spirits: we decided to get off the bike and run into the sea. Dressed 😀
North Sea is cold, really cold and we rested for a while there to enjoy the peace of the ocean.
We were so excited that Bruno forgot his action cam on the bicycle bar! (glad to have found it on the bike after 1 hour)
After just 5km we reached Den Haag.
What a pity we just had lunch and a little walk around, because this city deserves more then a day to be visited. It’s simply WONDERFUL!
You know, this happen very rarely to fall in love so fast, but you can breath a really positive air, a cosmopolitan air!
As a metter of fact the International Court of Justice is based here.
If you are planning to visit Den Haag we really reccommend you the shopping district and the museums: from Rembrandt to Escher, from the royal palace to the Gemeentemuseum where you can find the unique collection of Piet Mondrian’s artwork.
Badly, we couldn’t stay here forever, Rotterdam was waiting us aaand guess who’s knocking at the door? Clouds, very big grey clouds and a killer wind asking for our blood.
What we won’t forget? One of the stunning sunset ever 🙂
