Day Trip: Het Twiske

For this little trip we decided to take the dogs with us. We wanted to go adventure more but we felt bad for leaving the dogs. Especially since they get hella mad and cause all kinds of chaos like getting into peanut butter jars and howling like they will never see us again. 

Here's the area on the map: 

It's just North of Amsterdam about 16km. (10 miles)

Sprocket is a fool and can't be bothered. He's also an asshole.

I get this view a lot. I guess staring at the back of Sprocket's big head isn't so bad when there's a pretty canal and a windmill to look at also. Also the wind here is no joke. 

We rode through the park and it was a GORGEOUS day. It was one of those days in Spring where it's cold outside but the sun is so nice and warm that it doesn't matter. The wind here can be pretty chilly depending on where it's coming from. We found a little secluded-ish area and plopped out our blanket and took a nap with the pups and had some lunch. We annoyed each other up until this point as I was HANGRY. lololol. Am I seriously the worst? Jeez. Hahah. 

We rode around the park for a little while longer and then decided to head back through a different route that took us through some small towns. The. Houses. Here. Are. To. Die. For. Seriously. Something I noticed around this park area? That everyone and their momma has a horse. So many horses in the fields and people riding them everywhere. So in my mind this little town has been dubbed "horse town". 
 

Sprocket sees horse.

Then we hopped on a ferry and went home! Nothing too exciting here. Oh, sidenote: Someone tagged my bicycle with "RALPH" so now everyone thinks Sprockets name is Ralph. Someone videoed us riding by them and was yelling "HALLO RALPHHHH!!!" And I just smiled and pedaled faster. Bahaha. 

OH, and before I forget. This is how Indie travels in style.
