Our pal Jimmy, who we worked with on Eclipse, luckily ended a yacht delivery in Holland and is now lodging with his girlfriend and family in Amsterdam. We took the opportunity to go and see him, meet Janouk, shower, and have a gander in Amsterdam and the neighbourhood canals with a local.
After persuading Jimbo to come with us for a road trip we headed for Hamburg. Overnight stop in Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer National park (Jim sleeping in tent) and then onto Hamburg (Jim sleeping on van floor).
Still not being able to wild camp we stayed in an amazing site on Ronaes Strand (Jim sleeping in hammock). The canoe had its second outing, this time in the north sea fjords, swimmable for British and baltic for South Africans. Then onto Copenhagen (Jim sleeping back in the tent, his preferred of the three sleeping methods).
