Moto ADV - Holland/Germany/Luxembourg. Day 7.

View Aachen - Arnhem - The Hague in a larger map

On Day 7 we explored Aachen. Another wonderful city. We paid visits to the Rathaus and also the Cathedral.

We were about to depart the Ibis Hotel for Den Haag when Dr JK said, "Why don't we go to Arnhem?" "Jolly good idea," I said and so it was - Sat-Nav reprogrammed for the famous bridge and off we set.

A72 in Holland.

By this time I had finally figured out that I should cancel Avoidances and select Fastest Time. Here we are for a pit-stop on the A72 (I think) heading for Nijmegen and Arnhem. Boring autoroute though.

 Bikes on riverbank at Arnhem.

Going via Arnhem to Den Haag was a good idea. I'm very glad that we did that. And we made it to the Ibis Hotel (booked ahead from the Aachen hotel) in the centre of The Hague before nightfall. The motos were secured in the underground car park via a huge elevator.

Ibis lobby.

Here we are in the lobby. We look happy enough. I wonder what's wrong?

After another good evening of good food, good beer and good Sambouca it was time to zig-zag back to the hotel. End of Day 7.
