Dutch Travels – A Traveler's Home
Welcome to our website! This is the place to read our travel stories from all over the world, from cycling tours in Thailand, France, Spain and Cuba to city trips to Barcelona, Berlin and Rome. We also have a number of travel tips that will make life on the road a bit easier and less expensive, for example information about toll fares and cheap fuel in Europe.
We mostly travel by bicycle. It's our preferred way of travelling, because it makes it easier to get in contact with your surroundings and the local people, compared with travelling by car or bus. On our Dutch site De Wijde Wereld you'll find more stories and travel tips.
Enjoy and safe & happy travels!
