Upon our arrival in Chilean Patagonia, we were greeted by a colony of Magellanic Penguins.
For the first time, we are going to the southern hemisphere and the continent of South America.
When it comes to global warming and rising sea levels, the Dutch have a plan for that.
In the province of South Holland, we discovered the Dutch Golden Age in Delft, The Hague, and Leiden.
To buy that next piece of Beemster, Edam, or Gouda just smile and say cheese.
We left North Holland and traveled two hours by train to our new home for the month in Moordrecht, South Holland.
During our month in North Holland, we have skipped the main courses and survived instead by snacking like Dutchies.
From the saddles of our new second-hand Dutch bikes we are following the local way of life.
In Alkmaar, we rented a small apartment, bought a couple of second-hand bikes, and set out to explore the province of North Holland.
Over the next two months, we hope to keep our feet dry as we explore the Dutch provinces of North and South Holland.
