A few weeks before leaving we had to do something fun and memorable in the Netherlands. And so we attended the Rubber Boot Missie 2015 in Utrecht. The idea is pretty simple; reclaiming the medieval canals of Utrecht by drifting through it with hundreds of rubber boats.
Grabbing everything that could floated we made our way (using two tennisrackets as oars) to the startingpoint. On our way we even picked up a Ukrainian girl which was experiencing her first day in the Netherlands. And an experience she got! Arriving at the startingpoint, the water was filled with rubber boats of all shapes and sizes with a uplifting atmosphere surrounding the whole group. As we made our way through the canals, drinks food were shared, oncoming canal-touringboats were being raided and onlookers (plus our Ukrainian guest) were being baffled by all the crazy Dutchness.
