Next stop Gouda, Haarlem, Amsterdam then the Ijsselmer!

The major Dutch waterways that wind through town and countryside are very busy with lots of huge barges.
Many of these are 10,000 tons or more, and travelling at much higher speeds than Bonita is capable of.

These barges are always handled very skilfully and serious accidents are apparently very rare.

This AIS snapshot of our progress so far shows only a very small proportion of the other boats sharing the waterways.  Learn more about our final destination here.
