The week before last,[personal profile] fearless_prime ,[personal profile] marleigh ,[personal profile] fredrikegerman ,[personal profile] desireearmfeldt  and I went on a Mad Boat Trip in the Netherlands.   They let you just rent a boat and drive it around their rivers and canals, with a bare minimum of training in How To Drive A Boat. 

Subtitle: Things Not To Be Stuck In Next Time In The Netherlands:

  • A lock
  • The mud
  • Heathrow
  • Phone trees
It was a different sort of vacation than any previous big travel, in that, while there were some visits to Places of Note (the Musical Clock museum in Utrecht, the Gouda cheese market), most of the enjoyment came from being on a boat while scenery went past, and stopping in random places to have tasty food (including the ubiquitous mayonnaise on french fries, which I am a fan of).  It wasn't always as restful as I might have wanted, as navigation and logistics (my main job) was a little stressful, and the boat driving platform was often hot and sunny, but it was a fascinating adventure.     I'll post a link to more detailed notes and pictures when I finish annotating them, for those who like looking at people's vacation slides, but in the meantime, a picture of the boat going through Oudewater.
