It wasn’t the best night’s sleep in Enkhuizen. Rain drumed on the roof of the Hymer as it was rocked by storms last night. Unsure if it was 3 seperate storms or the same one going around in circles just trying to make things uncomfortable.
Looking out the window the sky is grey again, but there are a couple of patches of blue. Anyway we coffee, have some fruit then service the Hymer before rolling out of Den Helder. I see a Lidl icon on the screen of the GPS at the next town and we stop for a shop. We will leave The Netherlands in a couple of days and stocking up on beer for the trip north is on my mind.
Beer in The Netherlands and Germany is about the same price, but there is 20p deposit on cans and bottles in Germany, hence its actually 20p more expensive per can. That adds up over a hundred cans, so we start stocking up, its a long way to Norway and a can of beer in €5-6 up there.
Our goal for today is Den Helder, the GPS states 40 minutes travelling time but it will take us an hours and a bit. The Hymer enjoys about 100 kph, but its very windy this morning so 90 kph will have the Hymer moving about enough and we stop for some toast and coffee. Den Helder is situated in the northern tip of the Holland part of The Netherland. From here we can catch a ferry to Texel.
