Des Indes to Gouda & Bergambacht 57.2km
We set off for Gouda, once again passing the back entrance to the Queen's residence, through the "Groene Hart" (Green Heart) of Holland. Passing through the countryside and small towns celebrating the Queen's Day national holiday with flea markets, street fairs, and orange decorations everywhere.
