... The Hague, Netherlands (26/6 to 1/7)
On our drive back to Den Haag for 5 more nights we stopped by Ghent in Belgium which would have been a great alternative to Brugge and is also an easy day trip either way).
Back in Den Haag we got up to a fair bit more with a Saturday night out with some of Dave's workmates in Amsterdam (there are overnight trains every hour back to The Hague which are very handy) followed by a rather relaxed Sunday. Dave ...
... many cute stores, the Anne Frank house, food, and of course, a ton of art museums. First we headed in the direction of what we thought was the Van Gogh museum (stopping at the "I Amsterdam" sculpture along the way), but we ended up walking into the museum right next to it, Stedelijk Museum (museum of modern art).

... massive bike ride and short ferry trip out to. After a good look around and a snack break it was back on the bikes to ride back into Amsterdam, we weaved our way through the city checking out everything on the way. We made our way out to Brouwerij 't IJ, which is a local brewery also situated at the only windmill left in the city. We sat in the lovely beer garden, with the windmill behind us taste testing the local beers. After our well deserved beer it was back on the bikes ...
