Summer in Holland

Great weather for cycling!

Scenic cycling routes
'The future'
(Former) farms and farm-related land
Lots of cyclists on a day like this
Bunch of cows near my home
Steak, very rare
Mooooo

The cows you usually see in Holland are always white with black spots (or black with white spots, whatever you prefer), but these cows are a bit different. They're not used for farming. They live in a small natural area close to our house. This 'natural' area is being preserved and left alone to let nature run its course.

Good things about cycling in Holland:

  • It's very flat. There are no hills.
  • The roads are long and straight and easy to cycle on.
  • The nature is very pretty.
  • There's many roads that lead to the same place, so I can take a different one each time. (Unlike Japan, which usually only has space for one road)

Bad things about cycling in Holland:

  • It's very flat. There are no hills.
  • The roads are long and straight and very boring.
  • The nature is very pretty, but I grew up here and have seen the same sights a million times already.
  • There's many roads that lead to the same place. Unfortunately they all look the same, and it doesn't matter which one I take.

Oh well, at least I got some exercise.

(Go Japan! Hope you can kick some Paraguay ass tonight!)
