Waiting for the ferry, I asked one of the other bicyclists if there was a fee. In Norway, this trip would surely cost €5. Here, it was 60 cents. The kind woman with flowers on her steering wheel (yes, I got to know how to do this elegantly for my wife), insisted on paying my ticket. With her ten trip card, it was only 46 cents.
As my direction is Gouda today, I got to learn how she visits her father-in-law in hospital in Gouda by bicycle. So I got a quick guided tour of Schoonhoven, leaving me at the start of the SCENIC route to Gouda.
Kilometer after kilometer with ever changing beautiful scenery and gardens.
