With some road searching on our phones and Garmins, we managed to get underway. The first part of our trip we were cycling below sea level on the reclaimed “polders” on the bottom of the Ijselmeer. We traveled by Dronten and into Kampen where we entered the old land. By ferry we got to our destination of Giethoorn, the Venice of The Netherlands. People can only get to their houses by boat. We arrived in time to watch the World Cup final on a big screen in a sports bar. Most of the people wanted Croatia to win but France was too good. The next morning we took a boat ride through the village.
