Giving Up on the Pelgrimspad
I hope my posts will not discourage people from trying this route. It is spectacular. It just takes some extra planning and cash and we were not prepared. I would encourage anyone to do it. Just don't expect the kind of support you find on the Camino.
A person would be smart to know some Dutch, also, as booking lodging turned out to be a bit of a problem.
Jan's guide in English is very good. The maps are very helpful and the walking instructions are pretty good. I tend to take things literally and this led to some wrong turns. We also found a couple of mistakes but the purpose was to test it. If you would like to test the guide for him and are planning to walk soon, let me know.
