This picture was taken en-route to a gorgeous place in the Netherlands called Holysloot. It’s about a 45 minute cycle away from Amsterdam, and it is so, so, SO worth making the trip if you’re visiting the city for more than a weekend, if only for the school house converted into a cafe/restaurant! My advice though? DON’T TAKE A TANDEM. My boyfriend woke up and spontaneously decided that a tandem was the only way we were going to get to Holysloot so, much to my dismay, we hired one. I couldn’t ride it properly at all, and we nearly crashed into the canals about 134 times in the 5 minutes I attempted to be in control. But it was alright I suppose… on the long journey back I pretty much just kicked back and enjoyed the ride. Sorry… not sorry.
