... Mid August (well at least that's what I think the sign said!) No problem, I had found somewhere else, (Inventive Repair - http://www.inventiverepair.nl/nl/home.h tml) but that was 40mins back towards Amsterdam. Not a problem of they can help, after all I've not got all the time in the world. 2 hrs later and 120euros lighter they had fixed the bed by putting in a stronger bracket, clamped the broken window shut and sent me off to the nearest garage - Hylkema Peugeot - ...

A travel blog entry by 2and2 on Oct 02, 2012

... the sun was out so that was really lovely. A couple of playground stops later and we were worn out and on the way home. I would definitely return to Horn, even to stay for a couple of days it seems like it would have enough to do and would be relaxing. That is one thing we have missed on this trip - relaxation, we are go go go pretty much all the time. Amsterdam is such an exciting city that ...
