4/16 - Zwolle to Harderwijk
We are already getting spoiled with great hotels and great food!
Today we cycled 40 miles in constant ferocious headwinds!!! Luckily, there was no rain.

Sure glad our route was mapped on a Garmin; otherwise we would never have found our way.
Below, middle - Lots of tall masted ships in Kampen
BELOW - One of three remaining old city gates of Kampen — in Netherlands.
Here I am at the gate, talking to a local who has cycled every canal in Holland.
He explained that the wind shifts through the day so that you ALWAYS have a head wind!!
And we found that his words were true!
Below, right - Sign indicating we had crossed from "NEW" land created in the 1960s to "OLD" land
