Today was such a clear beautiful day that I decided to head off on the 30 minute train journey to Gouda. There was quite a bit of disruption to the railway lines in The Netherlands, where today at least half of the trains has been cancelled due to the freezing conditions.
Gouda was a joy, from it's medieval central square, where there is a weekly Saturday 'Cheese Market'.
Sint Janskerk ( St John's Church) which is the longest church in the country and also contains the treasure of The Gouda Windows.
I was also able to have my Breugel moment as I watched the locals taking to the canals for some skating.
Even the local bicycles had become frozen....
