Biking Through the Dunes

One of my friends recently told me that she likes to bike when the weather is good, so I decided I wanted to do it too. I looked around online and I found a route that seemed nice. It would go through the Haagsche Bos and Meijendel, an old park and dunes respectively, while also passing some of our monarchy’s houses. I’m not a big fan of monarchies, but their homes usually do look good.

Sadly, I got lost somewhere in the woods and when I reached Meijendel it was somewhere completely different than I was supposed to end up. It was still a lot of fun and I took some nice pictures. My eventual route was through Haagse Bos, Meijendel and eventually Scheveningen, before going back home.
