As we have a lot of water, much freight, consisting of, sand or gravel, is transported by boat. The boats travel as far as Germany or Belgium.
A very popular way of transport for persons is cycling of course. We have special cycle tracks. Almost every Dutch person has a bicycle, with the exception of most elderly people.
When I was young I often went away on my bycycle to cover long distances. My sister and I cycled from our homeplace in the Netherlands to Bristol in England, which took us 6 days. After our holiday of a month we decided to send our bikes to our home address, and we hitch hiked home. That took us two days!
I now use my bicycle for short distances, and I travel by bus, subway or train for longer distances. Public transport is 40 % cheaper for people over 65.
As I have a daughter in Australia I now often travel by plane.
