Ok so it’s not massively original but it is at least very Dutch. The walk from Mijdrecht began at about 0900. It was roasting hot by 1100. The walk was easy navigating (route planning courtesy of Mr & Mrs Prince) and through some beautiful landscape.

I read a book a year or so ago by an Irish guy who walked from the Hook of Holland to Nice. He had little good to say about the countryside here. I would say to him – you didn’t look mate. The people I have met have been interested and helpful and the country full of life. You just have to take the time and look up.

Tonight I am in the Stowis hostel in Utrecht. A 14 bedded dorm. I bet €10 I’m next to Germany’s champion snorer. I pick on the Germans because that’s what happened when I stayed here the first time. The last time I was here was when I came to the worlds biggest record fair with my mate Jacques. We bought a stack of psych classics that trip!

On a final note re Utrecht, round the corner from Stowis is the coolest vegan cafe / bar in Holland. Kitchen punx serve amazing food and I love them. Thank you for saving me guys . X
