Vraiment sympa
Amsterdam est vraiment une ville superbe, où il est facile de faire du vélo. On passe en l'espace de trois coups de pédale de la ville à la campagne, sans passer par des zones industrielles moches et ennuyeuse. Nous avons fait 4 jours à vélo, et découvrir chaque jour un nouveau volet de la carte postale des Pays-Bas : 1er jour, les digues et la mer intérieure ; 2e jour, le Waterland, ses polders et ses moulins ; 3e jour, la Mer du Nord ; 4e jour le pays des tulipes ! Génial ces changements de paysages en si peu de temps ! Pas un jour qui ressemble à l'autre, et que c'est beau de pouvoir ainsi disposer de pistes cyclables traversant des zones si sauvages !
