Finally, reader, the reason for my trip to the Netherlands is revealed. My next stop in my itinerary was finally Amersfoort. My mum! She was supposed to get the key to her new apartment, the one above the present one, the next day, and I would help her move. After I had booked the tickets, though, it turned out she would get the keys much earlier, but she had assured me she still had enough for me to do. And through a beautifully calm evening I walked past the prettiest old buildings Amersfoort has to offer. And to top that up I got a phone call from Neil while having a view on these.
