Nieuw-Lekkerland by bike [40km]

Normally I would get on my bike and step on those pedals and on my way I kind of deside where I would like to end that day. This will come through... or it won´t. Today I had a real desitination for the first time. Because I had a meeting with a ex-colleague, so it was kind of a thing to be at the right place at the right time. We do not want to get late right. But I didn't really had an idea how long I would need to travel, so it was kind of a guess.
I left at 12 o'clock and I expected to arrive about 14 o'clock. First I got to Ridderkerk, followed the sign 'Kinderdijk' which brought me to the waterbus. Offcourse I got on the first one to arrive, because I had no idea how those things work.
Once in Alblassedam I had to go through a whole odylle to get to Nieuw-Lekkerland, because nowhere were any directionsigns to be found. I find this quite strange, since the signs placed throughout the Netherlands are anything but perfect, they do appear rather abundant. Fortunately I can usually trust my pretty good sense of direction and with the help of a card which is actually too small for convenience, I arrive a little more tiented at my friends house at almost 15 o'clock. She does have very sweet dogs, nice tea, a pretty house and a pink toilet and also I stole some water for the way back ( I tend to learn from my mistakes... sometimes...)
On my way back I encounter the coincidence that out of all the waterbusses, I get on the same boat, the 'Piet Heijn'. I buy an extra ticket to sail all the way to Rotterdam, because it was rather late and my ex-boyfriend is waiting at my home to drop of our precious son. And offcourse because being on a boat is one of the best things in live. Those sweet little pleasures that brings a itchy feeling deep inside my stomach. The moral of this story... there is a rather simple way to sail for just a little money *evil grin*
