Good Monday! How was your weekend? We discovered on Saturday a very neat place that brought us good memories of our US road trip. Keep tuned for next week, we are still going through the pics because rumor has it that two kiddos may have gone a little crazy and took too many pics. And now to today’s adventure!
This year we were playing with the idea of renting a small boat and plough through the Netherlands canal waters this summer. We soon realized that it may be out of our current budget as it looks quite expensive (for only two) and also we maybe were too optimistic thinking that we could manage a boat without previous experience?
Dani had this type of summer vacations precisely in the Netherlands with his family lots of years ago, they also had 0 experience and none of them had a boat driving license but still managed perfectly fine during the trip & with the help of the lovely Dutch people. I also know that those were other times and maybe now having a driving license is mandatory.
The idea came to our minds when thinking about our summer vacations as little kids/teenagers. My grandparents had a summer-house in a fishers coastal town and I often had the lucky chance to go on 1-day boat trips with their friends. I know how I love the sea, but it has been ages since I have been on a boat myself (around 10 years, not even in a commercial one, just little row boats in lakes) and I am afraid that my phobias that are growing stronger day by day might have also been transferred to the sea and boats.
Oh well! We satisfied our boat craving by visiting them at the Maritime museum of the city (do the outfit look familiar?), which is so sparse that we only recommend visiting on Sunday’s afternoons when it is free.
Have you ever been on a cruise? Or a canal cruise? Do you like boats and sailing? I would love to read your experiences!
